First of all thanks for the tips. I want to drive this car daily but keep upgrading at d same time. I'm a little worried about the cost though. About how much do basic restorations start?
I am doing the same thing to mine. And trust me I can relate to the cost, hence the reason it is going so slowly lol But as I said watch for good deals, do not just go buy the first thing you find, personally I have been pretty lucky with the things I have found. So far I think I have spent about $1200 TO $1500 on mine. $400 for a complete original, not manufactured, Deluxe int.(upholstery, seat pads, dash, door panels, carpet, kick panels and side glass, all in perfect condition) I got that one by posting on AFM, both the forms and the classifieds, that I was in need of int. parts, one of the guys on here was changing his int to black and just wanted to get rid of it all
And I got a new front grill assembly, front and back bumpers and seat belts for $600 on sale from CJponyparts and then some small parts that added up, as of yet I have done all the work myself with some friends help and that has saved me a lot. So just ask around and keep you eyes peeled, you would be surprised to find how many people happen to have some good parts laying around that they just want to get rid of.
