Ever have buyer's remorse?
I picked up a 66 SS and thought it would be a good project for me and my daughter. Knowing our limits, I decided to have the floor plans replaced by a shop. They are a reputable builder and told me they would bring things to my attention before performing work. To make a long story short, floor pans has turned into - Both rear quarters, rear seat braces, package tray, rear pan rust damage on hood... What I started as a 5-6k project has now evolved into a 20k project just on the body...
He is still 9k away from finishing and I feel like just throwing in the towel. It is not a numbers matching car although it is a 138 car. I thought I did a decent job going through the car prior to purchasing, but either my eyes suck, or people are getting good at hiding shotty work.
How do you make a decision to just say forget it - absorb the loss and try a different car. Or is it once you start, just bite the bullet and do it. After all is said and done, I will probably be 60K into a 30k car. Sure it will be completed right but where is the line that you just say stop?
