DEALING WITH DISASTERS
1 DON’T PANIC! There’s usually a way around any problem. If something is completely unobtainable, you’re probably not alone in needing one; maybe you can pool resources and have a batch made.
2 NEED A BREAK? Use the time by bagging, labelling and boxing everything up. Otherwise you’ll forget what goes where and if you end up selling, it will make the project more attractive.
3 LIST THE ISSUES that halted progress and keep any problem parts accessible so that you can reach them. You may need a sample or meet someone who thinks repair is possible.
4 DON’T SPEND ANY MORE MONEY. The exception is if a rare part you need comes up by chance. You’ll need it if you get going again – and if you don’t, again it will make the project more saleable.
