  Total for everything. Including:

  Although, I did install 13 Commercial electrical lights for this truck. The owner supplied all materials for the electrical installation. About 4 days installation. I am a electrician by trade. 30+ years.

  Not counted is the gas to travel to and from the installation, my work time, including travel, or any traveling
expenses while the electrical installation was being done. I suppose if you wanted to count that, you could by using the last year I was in business at 85.00 per hour, plus add an additional 50.00 for fuel, at on average 9 to 10 hour days.

  I wasen't counting this because I was doing the work for a trade, and I wanted a old truck to see how I would do to
restore a vehicle. My choice to choose a "New Antique" and a Ford Ranger is several fold.

  So, by reading this file you discovered how much the truck originally cost me, and how I got it. No where else is this listed in this web site
