    Okay so here I am a few years later...
    I just want to say that I have done this as a backwards restoration.I honestly thought this project would be done by now, but boy was I wrong. I am still going, lost that loving feeling a few times. I had sent the car to a guy to weld the holes in the doors from rust and that took him a year (yep it did). Anyways, things are moving forward. The car has been primed and guide coated. I can say this site is amazing, I have been in here for guidance and was able to continue moving forward. Thanks to all the posts. Every question I had someone else had it or was dealing with the same issues. I have wanted to box everything up and throw it in a sea can, but I am still going, one fricken bolt at a time. Through out the project I have kept to original as I can. I had bought a Donor car for the interior and the front bumper. The donor is the same year same interior code. I just want to say that the donor car was the best thing I did. As I took the car apart I was able to replace the bad parts with good original parts from the donor. Things I was able to pull of that car that I had no idea I would have needed and saved me big time on dollars. I have pulled the motor and sent to the mechanic to put life back into it. Anyways I am hear looking for an answers to more questions and I was reading this post and remembering how excited I was 3 years ago. I love the update on this website by the way. Some pics from bringing it home to now.

    I can understand the "lost the loving feeling". I am working on a '71 Z/28 that is taking way too long. Seems to be fighting me at every turn, especially aftermarket junk that does not fit right. No fun redoing stuff.
    Are you doing all/most of the resto yourself? Awesome to find ladies who aren't afraid to take on a auto resto.

    I do like projects! I have that second hand when I need it, but I am doing most of the work.
    The donor car has been my parts store. I am happy that I have not had to buy too much aftermarket parts besides new rubbers/rug. I was also fortunate to find the battery plate still intact. The donor car was the best move I made.
