Well it's been awhile since our last update. So here goes, she has had 300 miles on her since my last post. We found some good deals too. I bought 2 good doors for $25 Feb 2012 at the Chicago swap meet. Found a hardtop in May on EBAY for $250 plus a trip to Hilton Head. Original luggage rack for $40 and a wire wheel setup last fall at PULL-A-PART for $200. I posted some pics of her since last time. She'll have her new coat of red this spring,not show quality but good driver quality. LOL

I got the Petronix ignition,that I bought in Wheaton, installed. I did that the week after we got back. I put the Isuzu starter in the first week of March and the Saturn alternator last week. OBTW also installed the new seat belts. Wow what a difference. Modern electrics in a classic car what more could you ask for. Still have a ways to go with the body,but mechanically we're ready. This has to be the most fun I've had restoring a car in years. The journet continues........

Well here we are at the British swap meet in Wheaton. I came home with a treasure trove of parts. Didnt get my carpet or seat covers,but did get a seat frame,deck lid for the trailer I'm building,a new seat of OEM seat belts for $10,a hood(alot better than the one I have),plus several other items I needed. Total cost,less than $200 dollars. I'm going back to Knoxville a very happy camper. Oh yea and Chicago and Chinatown aren't to bad either,may come back next year to sell.

We had the car operational with a motor rebuild and new brakes and clutch,bt the body of horrible. I welded in new floors,repaired the left inner rocker and replaced the outer one. I started out on the passenger side but thats when I got discouraged,more rust. We fast forward to February 2010,bought a GOOD used shell and started to transfer eve...
