I dont ever add any totals up. That way when the wife asks whats that one cost? I can answer honestly “no idea” just bought some parts here and there

I have every single receipt for everything I’ve done and the previous owner as well. I never add it up. I’m super OCD too, so I count everything in existence. It’s a challenge to not even keep a “rough tab” on it. The wife doesn’t ask, and I don’t know. It would probably make us both sick. I do know it’s been 2377 beers though. Don’t judge, I work 90% alone.

I'd rather not count the beers/drinks... I measure time by consumption.

You gotta factor heat in. I was slurping beers down last night while working on a welding project. Damn beers had holes in em or something I swear.

If I could stop counting them, I would lol!
The worst is license plates. I have to add all the numbers up. Have to.

Man, a cold beer on a hot day is proof God exists and loves us. Plus, beer makes us more handsome and gives us the strength and courage to do things we couldn’t have done without it.

I don't even want to think about what I have in Dusty. It started out as a cheap junk yard and spare parts build. My car has over 30k worth of parts in it and the interior and exterior still looks like junk.

I'd guess I'm close to $20-25k spent so far, and here's how it currently looks lol.

It takes money to make money, and these cars are an investment if you do them right. I'll keep this one a really long time, but it wouldn't have been worth much if it wasn't a full send.
