    My 73 Type LT build

    Hello all I've been around the site for a little bit, but now its time to start my build.

    I have a 1973 Type LT that runs but is needing a revamp. Hopefully just a winter rebuild (with your help). I finally have the space and funds to start still short on time but will get at it as much as possible.

    Truthfully this is my first overhaul so any and every bit of info would be greatly appreciated. I think I know where to start but am not 100% sure. I'm going to start at the front and work my way back dismantling and cleaning outside in.

    Here are some before pics with progress pics to come.

    thanks in advance for your help.

    Vic

    Thanks guys. I think she's pretty solid I was driving her for awhile just short trips to the store and stuff but now its time for an upgrade.

    I read about the Helm guide and also the Fischer body guide are the necessities that everyone here has and uses?

    Progress for the car today is minimal, but the garage got a much needed lighting upgrade. I didn't want to disassemble in the dark!

    The hood came off though!

    The tarp was to protect from the falling debris while I was hanging the two new light fixtures.

    17x9 Torque Thrust II front and back
    235/45 tire front
    275/40 rear

    If they look funny its cause the front is on stands.

    If you can make that ride as clean as your garage, she is gonna look purdy.
