Topic: My First LeMon
Hello all my name is Ronnie,
Well I am going to build my first LeMon and seeing how I am new to all this I thought I would ask some question and get some wisdom for you Pro LeMoners .
What is a good first build car? (Easy to work on and lots of cheap parts) Civic? Camry? Fire bird?
is it better to buy the best working car you can get for $500.00 or buy the cheapest LeMon you can find and strategically use your remaining $500.00 limit to fixing it up?
I have budgeted $3000.00 for this build ($500.00 for the car, and the rest for the roll cage, bucket seat, 5 point harness, master kill switch, etc.)
should this be enough for a Lemons car?
What are some good weight reductions? do weight reductions go towards you $500.00 limit?
Automatic or Manual Transmission?
once on the track if something breaks, does the cost of replacing the broken part go against you $500.00 limit?
Where can I order or print a work log book from to track the build?
I thank you for taking the time to read this post and for any advice you offer.
