Unhappy The Project Dies.

Bad News Update

I have waited to post an update because certain things were up in the air. Well it seems like everything as been figured out.

Yesterday I was given a detailed list of what is needed to complete the project. With that list is a current cost sheet which includes a $11,000. payment due now with another $20,000. needed to finish the project.

For those who have followed this project know that my wife has allowed me to get this far and she has been my greatest supporter. I found it difficult to tell her that I need $30,000 more after everything that we already poured into this project.

From the look on her face and the sadness in her eyes, it is fair to say that the project is through. I tried guys but I can't justify putting my wife through more financial loss by asking her to pull more from the RRSP's.

Having said all of that, it seems like the car will come home soon an I will have to begin the process of selling off what I can. I will leave the website up until it comes up for renewal in a couple of months.

I really tried to avoid this ending for the car.

Today I feel like part of me has died. :(

There's no way to recover your car to make it at least drivable?
