Then there is the cost factor depending on your level of ability, the shop space and the tools you have. If you have a shop set up already and have all the tools and supplies left over that is a big component. I would hate to total up just the amount of things I bought from Amazon, Eastwood, Summit, Ebay, Craigslist etc just in tools and supplies to make things better easier so not farmed out. If i did it a lot they would be amortized over time but maybe consider that as well. How often will you need them again. (ps they are not an investment!)

Frame was blasted and powder coated by a very good local shop. They did a great job.

Honestly I consider all the tools I HAD to buy a plus of the whole project. When do you get the excuse that ďI have to buy this tool, donít want to but NEED to.Ē

All said and done new tools I added were under $3k. But the Amazon’s deliveries, epic number. Prime certainly pays for itself.

It's the little things that add up, and shipping.
This^^^

Same starting point, no paint job so that saved $10,000. I was advised by numerous paint and Bronco experts to NOT paint it.

Not counting my time, parts alone, custom motor, frame rebuild, I'm pushing $50,000. I had luxury of Driven Auto saving me tons by being local, excellent labor rates, outstanding advice. Plus, It did keep me busy as my hobby over 13 years, so ONLY $3,800 a year for a hobby is cheap right? Golf is over $200 average a round and only playing every other week is $5,200 not counting thousands in sticks. Plus I can drive this thing.

73 Explorer , 347stroker, NV4500 D20, Quadrajet spreadbore with manual altitude compensation, 4.1 ARB, Moser CTM Currie, 78 FSB disk brakes. 3.5 WH suspension lift, 2" Body lift for NV clearance.

Must be a PGA course to cost that much, here it is $25-100 a round.

You are forgetting the beer, tacos, and betting during the round.

Always looking for the next project.
