Keeping Track of Costs

As I said in my previous post, I know that I’ve underestimated how much this is going to cost me. When I’m finished I’d like to know how much I’ve spent (to the penny).

I’d also like to know how much money I think I have left to spend at all times.

With this goal in mind, I’ve created the following google spreadsheet

In here I will keep;

  • A log of all spending
  • A price list of everything I need to complete the build
  • A list of non-essentials I’d like

For posterity’s sake my starting estimate is £11,140 all in. This is already miles out as I’ve not accounted for

  • engine wiring loom
  • dashboard wiring loom
  • delivery for the kit
  • uprated suspension (can’t cut corners)

I’m going to do what I can to help this by breaking what remains of the donor. I’m also considering what it would take to educate myself and make my own loom. Sounds like a bad idea as soon as I type it :mrgreen:
