Be realistic. ...
Get it up and running as quick as you can ...

Don't get sidetracked with other mods to the car ...

You have to be relentless. Do the jobs you don't feel like doing. ...

Have a clean work area. ...

Plan your work....

Have one place you keep all your parts....

Write a list of jobs to do. Then as you do them check them off...

Chip away and like I said before be relentless.

Take some photographs as you go. Then you can see how far you have come.

My number one reason people fail on all projects. You have to remember others may not have the same passion you have.

Paying for services. I never ever ever pay for a service before it's been done. Ever. If they ask for a deposit as a sign of good faith tell them you brought your car to them as a sign of good faith.

If anyone asks how soon do you need it done. Tell them yesterday ....

Uncle,
Every single one of those items you mention resonates with me. I find myself shaking my head yes, to all of them, like the 10 (or so) Commandments.

So, you must be an engineer, or have a similar occupation that requires attention to detail, multi-tasking, setting goals, and accomplishing the mission.

Either that, or military, or maybe physician.
