You've come out way better than me. I was double that ($4000) out the door when I bought the car and I still trailered it home. It ran and drove but I wouldn't drive it 30 miles at night not knowing much about it. It's a cool car. I like it. I wish I could find a good dash for it. The best I've found so far was a shadow grey dash for $750 shipped via Greyhound to me. Then I had neck surgery and forgot about it. 😂😂😂I still chuckle at the thought of comparing my 'project' to yours, which is perhaps best illustrated by my running tally, updated moments ago after ordering the struts.

Oddly, in the mid 80s, I was a pro car audio system builder / installer, back when a man's worthiness was measured by the size of his subwoofer cabinets. My only goal in this dept is to swap the OEM head unit back in.
