Well, after having the car for about 2 1/2 months, I finally got started on restoring it. I haven't done much, but I've at least done something. I had to wait because I needed to get a welder, torch and associated gas bottles. I have started practicing on my welding technique and started cutting out some of the old sheetmetal. By the way, MIG welding isn't that difficult to learn. I was pleasantly surprised at how my practice welds turned out. I still want to practice some more before I actually start welding on my 'stang. Now I just have to clean up the garage so I can have some room to work and get rid of some of the fire hazards.
