You REALLY have to love tinkering to do the restoration yourself. Most of us who make the attempt end up "contracting out" some of the work, since that part of the process can be done better by someone else. I did most of my work seven and eight years ago and have noticed that the parts are a lot more expensive than before. My advise is to have a clear plan, knowing what you want to achieve (and why) and be prepared to set aside money and TIME, or your car will sit in the garage forever. Also recommend that the time not take away from family time, which is much more important. Hopefully, after all the investment, you will have what you wanted! When I finished my car, I asked myself: "Now what?" I never liked spending a lot of time at shows, and the car is too good to be a daily driver. Ouch.
