    I think the process is half the fun anyway.

    just keep on doing your thing...
    no matter what that car is already what you want it to be...
    and at the same time...still missing something you're wanting for it to do/have

        this video is what got my gears turning again: https://instagram.com/p/9C9_AJmgce

        legitimate question, how do people who do "builds" justify the costs? I've tried to just convince myself that this is my hobby and hobbies cost money, but I still have trouble committing $5-10,000 that I'll never see again.

        Honestly, the idea of putting in money I'll never see again is one of the reasons I sold my first R32, and I think that was a dumb decision in retrospect.

        • I justify it by knowing how much fun I'm going to have with the car afterwards. Plus the journey of modding the car is half the fun to me.

          • /\ this. Plus when my mom passed last year, I realized how short and precious life is. That is why I bought the MK1 cause modding made me happy and I want to be happy today as I don't know what is going to happen tomorrow. I don't think there is any right answer, as long as your happy whatever your doing that is what's important. On that note it would be awesome to see this rip around a track.

            • Yeah I try to practice the idea that I can't take the money with me when I die, but I also want to have the ability to retire around 60. the fun/rational balance is skewed by this and many other factors.

              I've got something unique on the brain but I don't know if I'll make it happen. you'll be the first to know, MIVE.
