Safety First!

The restoration section of this site is a work in progress. The goal is to document how I carried out the different phases of this restoration. My methods may not always be perfect, but I do my best. Anywhere that I make a mistake, you can expect me to 'fess up to it.

As the restoration of the car moves along, the list of topics will grow. For the foreseeable future, expect a focus on rust repair, body work, and paint. I won't move on to the other phases of the restoration until the car is painted.
