Glad this thread motivates you!
As long as you enjoy solving problems, nothing is impossible. And once you dive in, you won't be a newb for long. I'll get back to you on cost once I total it up... Nothing is cheap, but I've been selective about getting the right parts vehicles and picking them bare, so hopefully it won't be too crazy. I need that number anyhow so I can get my Bronco registered as a modified vehicle, and have insurance better reflect its value.

Goofy thing here in BC:
  • Collector plates require correct motor/trans, must be 25+ years old
  • Modified classic vehicles can have different motors, but must be pre-1970
  • So mine will have to be a (modern?) modified vehicle
