Default Suscribed to your thread. (I've only just begun. 72 coupe)

I've barely touched the surface here.
I may grow old reading this.

Great Material.
I'm going to be following in your footsteps.

Highway robbers.

I *may* have many/most of the photos somewhere. Once I grabbed them all, but it was at least a couple of years ago now. I'll have a look 'around' and see what I can find if anyone is interested.

I found my archive of the images and the site content/pages dated from 2012 and before. Most of it was before it was painted, if my memory serves me well.

I compressed the content into a file that is now ~203 MB. It is now located in a shared location on Dropbox:

If there are no objections and/or the copyright owners agree, I will post the link to the Dropbox archive.

The content doesn't belong to me; I recall reading about some issues with the photo hosting service, so I made a backup of the then-current content. It is not my intention to be in contradiction to any possible copyright infringement, so, if there are any objections, please let me know and I will remove the link immediately and destroy my archive of it. I just didn't want it to 'get lost' as is sometimes possible when dealing with such things.

I wish I was 18 again. I love working on cars, but I just cannot crawl around them like I used to. Now they tell me I need a hip replacement. You wont be 18 forever, so keep up the good work and most of all ENJOY THE RESTORATION. You will remember it for the rest of your life.
