I didn't want to post an "in-progress" build thread, because sometimes progress was slow.... Figure I could get it all done in one shot.
I didn't make it under my $3000 budget. It was a lot closer to $4000, which isn't bad I suppose.
Insurance has just been sorted out, gotta get the car safetied on Monday, install the new clutch that's waiting for me, and then we're done! (for now...)
