Wall damage found on the van. My 12k budget could end up being on bodywork alone. Scary.
If I pull out of this van I lose over 3k, and could I really hope to make back my original purchase price on a van needing a minimum of £3000 repairs of bodywork done? Which means I could be out nearly 6k.
Drastic times. I notified my therapist I'm cancelling EMDR and will reconnect with her later in the year. Cut my yoga sessions in half too. Basically I need to pour every single available penny into the van.
Now I can repay £1250 a month on the van. So even if (when) the budget goes over, I can get around 50-60% of the entire project paid off by summer.
Truth is, a lot would say give up. In fact, a lot already have. But I'm tenacious, as well as a little foolhardy. This is my project, and my van. Besides, I can't just throw away 3-6k by throwing in the towel now and buying another van.
It's easy to say I was sold a lemon - but now it's time to make some friggin' lemonade.
