I'm baaack! The before picture above I had not seen until this last year. I remember him telling me 14 years ago he was considering buying it to restore and without seeing it I said sure, if you really want to. Now, had I seen it, my response might have been different, more like...OMG, are you crazy???
...now fast forward to 2010, easy for me to say as I didn't put a lick of work into it...but, I have to say, he's done an incredible amount of work and an awesome job. This required welding and installing a new floor, having to refurbish all the many small parts, rebuild seats, learn upholstery, as he did all of that, as well including the door panels.
