How do you all document your work when restoring / working on your cars?

 

Just taking notes and photos?

Start a blog on here and record your work. Imagine selling your car and providing someone with a link to an expansive blog documenting what you have done and why.

I have binders full of notes and printed doc and also an old laptop with a BMW directory and subdirectories for categories, like carb, head, exhaust, etc. Each time I found a good link or doc or FAQ post I would capture it into its directory. Crude but a wealth of info after 10 years

 

I also started a Shutterfly account 10 years ago with “monthly” directories and I squirrelled away each months work pix there

 

Very amateur resto but for a look:

I have a journal I keep on top of my tool box. Every time I replace a part I right it down and the date. It’s more for my own records but I’ll include it with the car if I ever sell it. I don’t save receipts but I received a binder full of them going back 25 years when I bought the car and it is fun to look at what things used to cost, including labor rates.
