There's only three things keeping me from getting really rolling on this project:
1. Time
2. Skill
3. Money

Ok, so we all have a set amount of time, we just have to "make time" as we can. I figure I can learn a few new skills on the way, but some of that means matching up time and place with somebody that I can learn from.

As for money...
This past weekend, I sold a fair number of items at a rummage sale. The total profit for me was $176.

So, that now brings the new total BUDGET for this project to....


I built the Motorcycle for $2000, the Electro-Metro for $1300, but I think I'll still need to raise a bit more to fully fund this project!
