If you are looking to build or restore a car then you are going to need a bit of help either way. The best thing that you can do at this point is to go to a car show or car club and meet new people that love the same things as you do. You never know you might meet someone that wants to help you out enough to where they can get cheaper and better parts for you anytime you need them.
The first thing you will want to do if you are building a car is go around the car club looking for people who sell parts wholesale or just for someone who will give you a big discount since you are going to be buying a lot of parts. You will just need to make friends with everyone and try to find someone that will want to work on the car just as much as you do.
If you are going to need or want a paintjob or glass work done then you will want to ask around as well because those two things alone can set you back about five grand. A good paintjob can cost anywhere from two to four thousand dollars depending on what type of paint and how many coats you want. There are just a lot of things that you need to realize when you are building a car.
As you keep working on the car when the time comes around for you to work on the motor then you are most likely going to need help no matter what because no matter how much you know you will always need help with a motor. Motor work is different then just painting there are many different things that you will need to know in order to make other things work as well.
You building a car and you being in a car club will benefit you more than someone just building a car in the garage at home. You will be able to call friends that you know or just walk up to them and ask them for help or opinions, whereas in your garage you only have you and your computer to rely on. At a car club people will love to help and show you the right way to do things where as in your garage if you mess up then that might cost you some time and a lot of money. So the good thing to do is get help from someone who has already done it or is doing the same thing as you. It will pay off in the end to be part of a car club because they will be able to show you and teach you things that you might not have even known about. You may learn something about your car that you never even knew about it. Just go out and find a car club for you.
