You won't piss me off. It's an open forum for discussion.
It may take a little longer - but people do care if it functions mechanically, right?
Would it have been smarter to do a lot of cosmetic stuff instead of rebuilding the transmission & transfer case, replacing U-joints & the front driveshaft, new brakes, new radiator, engine hoses, etc.? I have not added anything cosmetic to it. At this point, I won't, because there is so much personalization with that.
I find it more important to run correctly than to "look pretty".
Well, if it's $6-$8k - I think I will enjoy it for a while
