Default Re: Do you guys start with drivers or basket cases?

I took the best I could afford, and I looked for an abandoned restoration project ...

My reasoning was that all the big work had probably been done before the PO lost heart and decided it was all too much, or had a baby, or got a job in a town with no garage space ... you'd be surprised how many of them there are who just don't realise they've done all the hard stuff climbing the mountain ... and the rest is a long, slow stroll down the other side ... and they give up ...

Because of that I had very little repair work to do before I started to rod it ...

Get one already dismantled so you can see the state of the work to date ...
