Actually, I'm just finishing mine, but I finally got all the parts. Add another $500 for tools, and another $500 in mistakes. If I had used plans I could have done it in 3 months at a slightly higher price. I spent much of my time just gathering parts on ebay at the "right price". I'll post a web page about it when I done (this month).
