I've always maintained an extensive spreadsheet of $$ and
time spent on each task for all my restorations.
This spreadsheet is also used to track who sells what,
where I bought it from last time and for how much, what I
paid in shipping, order and delivery dates and how
much I've sold off extra and old parts for. :-)
