The winter project update

I ended up getting the aero brake lever today. I went to install it into the newly cut drop bar and guess what? The drop bar was not wide enough or the lever was too wide. A minor setback but I still am on track to have this up and on the road by January winter riding. I went to Budget Bicycle and talked to guys there about this build. I left with my head spinning. This project is supposed to be fun and rewarding but I am finding it to be a money pit. While I only have $5.24 invested in it so far, I feel this only the start of the $$$ flying out of the wallet. I need new handlebars that fit the aero brake lever, the rear wheel addressed and a chain.
