I'm building a beater - unintentionally.

I got my truck sheet metal parts painted last June and have been assembling the truck since then. Somehow I've managed to put big honking scratches on three of the four fenders, and both doors. And I haven't even finished putting it together!
Now I feel like I have to whack the last fender and then the hood to make it balanced.
The perils of working alone in a one-car garage I suppose. So my truck is growing with character one day at a time. According to a project forecasting software algorithm, at the rate I'm depreciating the cosmetic condition during the restoration - it will be a bona-fide genuine beater in six months and four days.
