Building my first.

Hey, I'm debating whether to build, or buy, and I'm looking for advice/ input.

I have a friend who know how to do it all, and two relatives who can do just about everything. I will be learning as we go.

I've been thinking about finding a beat up truck that runs from a scrap yard, and rebuilding it. Probably buying two more scrap trucks for cheap just like it, and parting them out, rather than just buying a decent truck for $7500.00.

Would it be cheaper to build a vehicle, rather than just buy one? (This is my main concern, which is going to be cheaper.)

Re: Building my first.

Buying is better unless you know all the engineering of the vehicle.
