  2. The front end is one of those areas that some people do right of the bat and others wait on. I just happened to wait on doing the front end on mine. As far as all of the money stuff goes, I'm a divorced father to an almost 4 year old girl. I work hard and spend a ton of time with her. All of my other time is spent doing things around my home or out in the garage. A friend of mine said something to me a few years ago that I simply live by anymore " Stay in your financial lane " and that is just what I do. I have no debt other than my mortgage and spend my expendable cash on cars, it's just my passion like I believe so many others here share the same feeling in varying degrees. Also like you said I do everything myself. I fabricated all of my own chassis, wired and installed every last piece on the car since it was a 4 banger. The only work I don't do for the car is the engine machine work and painting (other than a rattle can lmao) that's it. I have saved tens of thousands of dollars in this build by doing this all myself.

    As far as the K member goes, I had a QA1 k member in the car, there is nothing wrong with it and it's perfectly straight we just bent up one control arm from the accident. I decided to switch to the UPR front suspension for a few reasons, 1 it's all chromoly, 2 it eliminates the motor mounts for the motor/mid plates I'm putting in, 3 I switched to a shorter A arm setup and 4 went to welded in caster/camber plates to pull the caster all the way back in an effort to keep this car headed straight at speeds of 180+ to the 1/4 mile stripe. If you're interested in the K member pm me, I'll give you a "bro" deal on it.

  15. a man after my own heart. I've git my custom smoker sitting in the back yard. I used to have a whole trailer for competition cooking but I was single and stupid and got burnt out from doing it by myself. now I limit my meat smoking to 6 racks of ribs, 2 turkeys, 16 turkey legs, 6 whole chickens, 4 hams, 4 briskets or 8 pounds of beef jerky.
