Awesome Bro!!!! This is going to be epic. You are going to get a lot out of building it yourself, the pride and hard work makes you really feel great about your effort and is hands down the way to go. Anyone can pay for a quick car. When you put your own blood, sweat, and tears in the out one is so worth.
I can tell just by reading your posts that you have a great character and work ethic that will get you anywhere you want to go. Best wishes!!!!! YOU CAN DO IT!!!!
