too broke to buy a bike...

so it's time to upgrade! I am currently riding an 05 hardrock. I am going to replace the forks with some Reba shocks, put on some avid bb7's, put on a specialized xc stem, put on some race face evolve xc cranks, and finally if i can finance it some cosmetics. What do you all thinik? I am trying to make a mean all mountain hardtail able to climb mountains but tough enough to bomb down some intense lines. any thoughts suggestions and replies much appreciated. I also want to powder coat my frame but that kinda falls into the cosmetic category...

Sounds like a good plan, but before I spent a bunch of money powdercoating a HardRock frame I might look at getting something else maybe. The parts can always be on any bike so are a good investment.
