I know the feeling, this month on my truck only.
Transmision service 160$.
Exhaust mainfold 120$, radiator 220$, plus 1 hard days work by me.
Muffler shop 80$.
Almost 600$ and Ive only worked 10 days this month.
I still want to go through all my equiptment and stock up on a few parts over the next 2 months, theres another 400to 500$.
