The Young One
We are not planning to completely restore my car. We are kind of makeing it into a race car. We will fix the rockers but that will be the only rust that we will really take on. My Gt is kind of a daily GT or a beater GT that has a destroyed body but a good engine and maybe some day a good suspension.What about not trying to restore the GT you have? Wait till you are older and buy a GT that has a good body and a manual trans. Restore that instead. Let this GT serve as your fun for now. Body work is not easy and if you’re chasing rust on your car, you could find out that the body has too much rust.
Even if you do end up restoring and converting your GT, you don’t have the funds to really pursue that right now. I’d focus on the cheaper stuff. Rebuild the engine and put money into improving it. Then the engine is done when you restore the car or put it into a better car.
Just something to think about.
