It's a big job to "build" a car from the ground up. Aggiesrok is right, but the car show guys get everything done in record time. Tools, knowledge, and money are a must but patients is what I've learned the most. Save money, parts don't fit, modify, return, wait for new parts, cut the grass, go to work, busted/ bleeding fingers, it's all part of the build. After 2 years invested in rebuilding my 66 GT coup I'm looking forward to starting it up this weekend. But even then it's not over, tune the carb, fix the leaks, adjust/retighten everything order more/new parts etc. But, if your determined to do it, lay down a plan. Organize/prioritize what needs to be done, what you would like to do and finally what can I afford to do. But the end result is a car that you will know every nut, bolt, thread size, etc. Good luck. Hey Aggiesrok, you still in Aggieland?
