I don't know if I would do that. Your 67 is a decent looking car. I guess it depends how basket cased the 68 is.

In reply to JohnyHachi6: pretty sure that's spot on.

Thats what we figured just wanted to be sure. The 68 has front disc brakes and power steering which we wanted to do so this also saves on budget costs. The 67 is going to a good home the new owner will be able to drive it while he tinkers with it. He bought the 68 in the state we r getting it

  1. Consumables don't generally count towards the budget. I think there was something about counting costs for molds/bucks if you did any composite layups though.

  2. If anything is donated to your effort, it should be put in the budget at fair market value.

  3. Generally the rule about non-public car auctions has been extended to parts and material: if you get any parts/materials from a source that is not publicly accessible then it must be evaluated at fair market value.

On that last rule, I think if it's something that can be reasonably expected to be found in the garbage then you're ok not counting it in the budget.
