They must have had better quality control. I am surprised they don't have more issues on the assembly line.
I think at least 1/4 up to 1/3 of the 2900 hours was trouble shooting and fixing replacement parts - fitting rear quarters, floor pan, running down electrical issues, rebuilding rebuilt parts (power brake booster for example). Not to mention taking things back apart to fix an issue (leaking intake manifold gasket replaced 3 times, etc.).
So I came dangerously close to Ryan's rule of restoration #2 - I don't want to know what I spent on the project for plausible deniability to the wife. AND I didn't want to cry last night. ?
Rule #1 - You don't want your wife to know what you spent is still in effect - thank goodness!
Rule #3 - save all receipts in case you need to sell and can tell the IRS you didn't make any money on the car.
