Well said, but you are most likely preaching to the choir.
By the time someone gets on this list he's done the dirty
deed and paid too much.
The only way anyone can break even on a MGA-MGB is to buy
the car for less than $1000, have plenty of usable or
salvageable spares on hand, and do most of the work except
specialized machine shop stuff.
And then you can't tally in your labor as $. Consider your
labor and money spent as "entertainment" just like someone
playing the slots. At least the "payoff" might be better.
