Like one of these? Stick

Love the write-up man, sadly I've never installed an alarm on any of
my whips. Odd, considering that two of my cars have been broken into
and *poopy* stolen. I've always done the plan/list for my builds, and like you
have theoretical builds priced out for several cars at any one time. I wish
I had your organization, would have really helped w/ maintenance and what-not on the EJ. Oh well, no time to start like the present right?

This should be helpful not only to the n00blets, but also as a reminder
to the seasoned veteran to "get back to basics" w/ their builds...

Exactly, in fact here's a picture of me in action:

I'm surprised to hear about the alarm thing, but you can definitely start organizing and doing record keeping. There indeed is no better time than the present Dave!

It isn't entirely about exceeding boundries;
Rather than working within them.
