Hello! Just joined the site a few weeks ago...so far this has been the best forum I have run across. I own a 73 Convertible that I am in the process of stripping down (just started early last fall).

I have no skills doing body work or welding, so I have to send the old gal out. I hope to get some tips and ideas on this site as I go through my restoration. I posted on the maintenance and repair forum to get some ideas on restoring some interior components. I have received some great ideas so far.

Thanks for the responses so far! Hope to post agian as I think of other topics.
