At what point can a few parts upgrades be considered a 'frame on' restoration? A hypothetical question, but maybe there is an answer to this?
Built in '92 with full documented ownership in CA, VIN #195 is well on it's way to catching many more years of attention. Previous owners kept great records including the original Beck order form. I intend to be the best 'care-taker' I can be. With car show season beginning in April/May here in CA, I maintain a good line of sight on the goal. I have several great resources available....and appreciate the help from the community so far. Certainly the 2020 West Coast cruise is a goal as well.
Tried out my new pressurized steam cleaner which was integral in removing old grime, I recommend it for an engine detail. Now with a clean slate, the parts list is growing.
Sourced one of the most significant components, a gorgeous stainless steel exhaust system from @VSpyder Thank you Greg.
Plans so far...
- new exhaust
- new tires
- complete engine and transaxle service
- new brake lines
- new steering wheel and related components
- battery relocation to firewall
- relocate oil cooler and lines
- GT mirror install
- new carpet and tonneau
- new turn signal lenses front and rear
- new seat belts
