If I buy a rolling shell and use the current cut up car as a parts car (1969 Mach 1's). Is it difficult to put the car back together again? This is coming from someone who has never done it before. But a quick learner from books. What is the order to follow when putting a car back together again?

if you have never done it before... you are in for a treat.

here is normally what i do:

-install all brake lines and fuel lines
-install suspension, front and rear
-install engine and transmission
-install exhaust system and all remaining mechanical stuff
-put together the exterior of the car including all sheetmetal and trim
-put the dash together
-troubleshoot wiring and stuff, crank up engine
-put interior together.

Charles's order is great. Lots of the things can be switched around, though, to fit budget and time constraints.

I also agree with CT, in that if you've never done it before you are in for a treat. It is very important that you realize what you're getting into before you start. Many, many people loose interest and/or run out of money in the middle of rolling shell restorations. Set realistic goals.

I'm dead in the middle of my 3rd rolling shell restomod. They are very time consumming and very expensive. They are also very rewarding when your done (but it takes a long time to get done *LOL*).

If you always do what you've always done,
You'll always get what you've always got
