I have added receipts before, but nowadays I only do it in piecemeal chunks (like how much the engine itself cost to build) rather than adding up to a total or maintaining a long-running balance sheet. Summing it all up would make the Mrs. go berserk.

FYI, you can post your photobucket photos directly to the forum. When you select a photo on photobucket, you will see an icon above it that looks like a chain link. Click that icon and you should get a popup. In the section under "photo links", there is one titled "IMG". Click the text below that (it looks like [ URL=http... ] etc) and it will copy the code for sharing on a forum . Then when you are typing on OFN, you can right click and select "Paste" to put that code into your post.

For example:

In my case I am learning as I go. A pro probably would have a quarter of the time in that I do. So I would say about $12.50/hr for my labor

For the type of build lots of one-off and a fair amount of design time, I'd knock a chunk off shop rate down to say $75/hour.
At that rate, parts and labor would be about $50,000.00 which is the going rate for a brand new truck off the lot... and this one will walk anything new...

first drive

I took the first drive last week.
The brakes suck.
I have tried bleeding them with a hose in a jar of brake fluid.
Tried speed bleeders. Tried someone pumping the peddle and opening the valve.
Tried bench bleeding 2 times.
All this and still a mushy peddle and cant lock up the tires.
All in all this RPU is a blast to drive.
Handles like a go cart .

Don't know if you can but you might try reverse bleeding.

You use a pressure bleeder but connect the pressure to the bleeder screw and force fluid back to the M/cyl... Works awesome for Hyd Clutches (Ford Rangers come to mind)
