It's good advice Keith. I have an ever growing box of new in the bag/box parts because I shifted gears multiple times (pun intended) over the last 10 months. In all fairness, I didn't know what I didn't know and there is so much out there to choose from it's easy to realize you might want to do something different than you first envisioned.My advice is to sit down and really think of what you want out of your new baby. Original, resto mod, a little of both? Once you have decided what you want make a plan. Stick with that plan. Too many times I have seen people change their builds mid point and loose thousands of dollars. Even if you buy a part new, and change your mind , the part is used and you are not going to get what you paid for it back out of it.
So my advice is plan out your build. God Speed, and welcome to the addiction.
Nice to know, i wanted to work on the dash and install an ac system as well before putting in the windshield.Plan your steps and do your best to think ahead. For example it's a lot easier to install
the headliner prior to windshield and rear window. Also don't buy parts way ahead of
time as too often we've all seen parts purchased not fit but out of the return time frame.
