Simple: because I want to scare anyone away who thinks that this is going to be a concours restoration with every part that goes into the car being NOS (new old stock) only.
I am not like that. Sorry. If you are looking for that: look somewhere else.
I see myself as a redneck. What’s this? Look here to get an idea:
Urban Dictionary: Redneck
I start out to do most of the work myself.
This restoration will not involve many expensive external jobs, particularly not the bodywork nor the paintjob.
Yes, I will use Scott Drake parts. Yes, there are some good ones.
I will try to find the most (cost-) efficient way of repairing / restoring parts.
I will try to re-use most of the parts that I find on the vehicle today.
I won’t fix things that are not broken.
It will take time, I am not in a hurry.
I want to (re)build the car for myself the way I like it.
If you’re still interested, read on.
With the next post the dirty stuff will begin.
