17 years ago - fixing up HQ Panel Van (to sell) while driving Cortina wagon!? Thought - WTF?! Fixed both, sold the Cortina, but still got the HQ Van - Happy Ending to story! Ha Ha!

still in the middle of it - what was worse was when I realised I was one of the blokes who started a project all keen and pulled a perfectly good car apart to build the ultimate machine only to realise that I couldnt afford to finish it and was going to be one of those w^&nkers selling a half started project.

Fortunately have a patient and understanding wife and have done it over 4 years....probably half way!

Yep, when you realise you have 3 HQ GTS's that owe you $$$ but drive a EA FORD everyday which you paid $700 for and have spent about $200 on in 5 years!

Yeah... I set out to change my life. Now Im here- I dont ask WTF did I do this- just WTF did I wait so long to do it!

The trick is with any sort of project - big, small or Monsterous- is never let it get the better of you. Dont let others ( read less informed or enlightned) tell you its bad idea if you know deep down its a bloody good idea. Once you start telling yourself its a bad idea- then it probably was....
Cheers streetneat-Andrew. :-)

Cheap, Fast, Good - pick two.
If its cheap and its fast - it wont be good.
If its good and its cheap - it wont be fast.

I've had many small projects but none like my current v8 FJ. Everyone (even the boys!) say you'll never finish it. you're wasting your time etc etc. I've been building [storing:)] it for about 7 years now...

But it's a hobby. and when I'm not workin or busy I love to tinker in the garage. Keep tinkering and once you see things that you've made/repaired start working it's pretty awesome! Can't wait to start assembling mine (paint should be on in the next few months!)

Regularly wonder if I am getting anywhere, so wrote up a list of "To Do's" on the EJ, before it can go for paint. Crossing them off makes me feel better as I see the list getting smaller. Need something to motivate you on multi year projects
