Costs were tallied at the time the parts were acquired. We do not guarantee that they have not changed since then. - Legal disclaimer to keep our butts out of trouble.

Well, we blew it; we are 717 big ones over the budget. I know, it usually happens this way, but it would have been nice to stay under the line. (Note to self-maybe Dulcich won't mind if I don't pay him this month). There's no doubt that we could have built this car for under $4,000, but we would have had to skimp and compromise in places where we didn't want to. The bottom line is this: It's a good idea to have a budget and to try to stay within it. I have yet to build a car without underestimating the cost. I bet I'm not alone, am I?
