I decided to do a mini-frame-off restoration to validate the color combination that I was thinking about using on the main build. I was able to get a ton of work done the first day including:
  • Removed all interior components
  • Removed entire body from frame
  • Removed both front and rear axles/wheels
  • Removed all glazing from body
I have actually been doing all of the work myself.

Got the frame powder coated and all of the interior restored, however during disassembly I found that one of the axles was bent and some of the interior components were not in great shape. Luckily I found this donor car for a great deal that I can salvage the parts from that I need.
