Build Spec Sheet

I have done a search and cant seem to find anything like this?

Has anyone built an excel spreadsheet for a new or existing build? Getting ready to start a new project and I normally would put together a complete sheet to estimate time, budget, parts needed, etc...

Any help or direction would be great.

Are you talking about for a rebuild? If so, I can't imagine how you could accurately estimate the parts required without either completely disassembling first or assuming that everything needs to be replaced e.g. a ground up build with all new parts.

Doubt many guys would want to know the true cost of a rebuild.....

I tried to keep track of mine, but gave up. I don't really want to know anymore. Plus there are so many other factors in mine like selling off the used parts and changing my mind on parts and upgrades along the way.

You won't know ahead of time and can't judge until you get in to it, plus build hours vary by skill level.

Just triple anything you estimate for time and money. That logic seems to work.

Estimate your time as accurately as possible and then multiply by three. Virtually impossible on these trucks. It once took me an entire day to remove a salisbury. After hours of heat and dousing bolts with pb blaster I ended up cutting it out. Normally takes me under 2hrs.

..and quadruple the amount of space you have estimated for the rebuild / interim parts collection and storage. Vehicles take up a lot more room when they are in pieces...

Then there is the time spent ordering parts but not knowing that you actually need another part thats not listed to make everything work.....and the parts you order that don't fit. Thats happened to me already.

If you know exactly what you have to build, year etc, you can go to a free microcat site and start to figure your prices. It also depends upon how much you want to replace and then what you are going to have to replace.

Been working on this sheet for those of you that are interested or OCD and need to know. I will share once it gets a little further along. I was able to find something that some else did for a Corvette rebuild that was a great start. let me know if there is any interest
