Looking for creative ways to finance a project/hobby when funds are low.

Among other expenses, my project requires the purchase and maintenance of working vintage equipment (I already have some, need to buy some more). The gear, and replacement parts when needed, are available - but a bit beyond my budget, and necessary outlay of cash is likely to be somewhat continuous. The project is gaining fans and has the potential to become a business one day...
I don't want to get into debt for this, or be constantly working overtime or not making ends meet in order to fund this project. I plan to look at things like Kickstarter, sponsorship, and networking with local enthusiast groups that might have connections... what other suggestions do you have?
