Poop, there are shops that can repair the lip too. Not as expensive as you might thing either.

I second that! Amazing job on the wheels!
How did you get them to polish up so good?

Man, I just through some starting fluid in and this thing fired right up and purred like a kitten. So I put some air in the tires and took it for a spin around the block. I found a couple of things wrong with it. No 3rd gear & oh ya NO BRAKES!!! I flew right through a stop sign (luckily there were no cars coming). So I continued my journey using the e-brake. The thing ran so good though. :)

Probably a bad master cylinder, seems to be the usual suspect for these early scoobs. Thank god for the front E-brake though...

3rd gear is going to be a problem. Is it a 4 or 5 speed? I have a spare seat of gears sitting in my shed if its a 4-speed.

maybe you will get lucky and find that 3rd gear....is it all sloppy finding other gears too, normal bushing mia problem? it might still be there, you just gotta search for it. Yeah i know you are aware of this, i had to just throw it out.
If it is a 5speed, without 3rd gear, it is now a redneck 4 speed.

Not a problem. Take your time (not too long). I'm just stock piling all of the parts not for the restoration next summer. This is going to be my best project yet. All though I keep getting a ton of people who want to buy this coupe from me as is. I just can't give it up. I'm in love.

I just got a ton of parts, but I need more. I'll shoot a photo of what I got. I'm changing the grill out to a stage one 4WD grill and hood and swapping out the gauge cluster too.

I can't wait to get those seats from moosens:grin:

I'm hoping to have this thing put together by next summer.

So I've been slowly tearing this rig down. I've almost got all of the interior out and all of the lights out too. I'll start posting some photos here soon.
