I've seen too many guys think they will tear the car down and get through the process in a year. 4 years later they have a car under a tarp, they way underestimated everything and it gets sold as a project. Get it running on the road and take it in stages while you can still drive a car. Tackle the suspension and rust repair, redo interior, alter the body as wanted, etc. I strongly disagree with tearing into this thing completely unless you have at least 25k sitting around to start ordering parts and 15-20 hours a week. Not trying to be a downer but it's going to take at least two years if you are doing all this yourself. You have so much to read, determine and organize, you will be much happier if you can drive along the way.
