I have a list of things I want to put into the car how much, around they will cost me if I go through like Modern and Howell. I am wondering if others do this or am I the only one?

I find it really nice cause as I get parts I take it off the list and then I can kinda see how much I have put into it and how much I still have to go to make it the way I want it.

I've got 2 different lists for my car, and a lot of other lists for cars I don't have. No prices, though.

Obviously not strange, I think almost all of my buddies with neons have done this. It's a good way to set goals and achieve them.

I do that, prices and all. But I go so far as to break it up into Suspension/Engine/Body/ect. Laughing

I did this also..but have seemed to lost my list. I have a bad memory. Plus, I'd always scratch things off, change my mind and put it back on, continually. It was a vicious cycle. Laughing

I did that also but I have a pretty good memory on what I do and stuff so I got kinda tired of having to log everything. Plus... I'm pretty certian that I'm gonna have the R/T until it falls to pieces and not sell it since thats a lot of money out the door... so keeping logs for resale got kinda old too. haha
