Snowballing effect of $500 truck

Well since have dash out replacing blend doors an heater core , I thought you know , the carpet is old smelly and not in good shape , decided to order new carpet then thinking well new carpet requires new seat covers over these horrible dirty cloth style should turn out like pictures before an after, so spent more money I did not have

then that led to new nerf bars to step on to enter an exit the truck and then beat up bumpers front an rear had to go so added that in ... After all that new exhaust sounds so good and complete tune up with msd coil packs has the Hemi purring with a rumble that the rest of truck had to step up,and parts will all be here in a few weeks ,so after running up the plastic will be paying on for the next year at least ,, but I do get to write off truck on taxes as I live on a farm so I can write off a lot of the repairs as expense , not all but at least half maybe more ,,never know if I can write enough off I will buy paint next summer and paint the truck ,,but I got to get back on previous project the 79 f100 that got put behind the snowballing effect,,good thing kids are grown and I thank God I can still do the work an afford to do so what the heck

Dam I hate body work but its coming along , have everything repaired truck runs perfectly no issues, and have the wheel quarters patched and the dent crease on passenger side bed repaired but still working on passenger side doors. both of which had deep creases an some denting from previous owner wish I could afford to replace but not in the budget an cant find any good deals at the junk yards around here, everyone wants $200 per door if you do find any , but after that its ready for a spring time paint job and will be done with this project , , and can get back on the 79 f100 project
