Hopefully my questions will get less stupid as time goes on. Better to ask than turn my car into an accordian.
That wasn't a stupid question, its a really good question.
You mentioned this is your first restoration. I really believe that every hour you spend on this forum researching something about your car before you actually do any work on it is probably the equivalent of about $20 to $40 an hour your saving.
If you can hold off doing anything on it, I couldn't, you will save a ton of money and headaches by researching it first.
I also noticed you came off that cash and became a paying member right away, its guys like you that help keep this forum going, we appreciate it.:thumbsup:
While I'm on here it wouldn't hurt to get on my website and take a glance at the floor pan replacement, not exactly how I did it, but you will see some different tools and different ways to do them.
Don't do all the screws like I did:clonk::clonk: unless you like driving screws.
