Can't help you there Camino, I'm travel alone. Although I could with a little information come up with a plan that would indeed ease the tension on what you do with some cash in the garage, but it will require some work on your part. Even though I don't spend much money while doing things like this, most of the exspenses are a one time thing like welders and polishing equpiment. The only things that are reoccuring is sheetmetal, polishing wheels and rouge and wire for the welder, but most of that is rather inexspensive and will last a few prodjects. My budget for the T/A is $3000 including wheels, machining, tires, and any other things I may need like wiring, sterio, body supplies, paint, interior, interior fabric and supplies. I will try to keep track of the funds on paper too just to show you it can be done. I got the car for free, engine and tranny for free, already had the carb and interior, but will be replacing that. If I spend all $3000 I will be suprised.
