How much did you pick it up for? Have you done an estimate on how much it's going to cost to restore?

The subframe didn't make it on the truck, hopefully be here soon. I paid asking price for the car. After enclosed trailer shipping, other parts I've picked up so far i'm probably into it for around 10k. Not sure on the budget yet. I got a quote for isotope green paint today, with the 3 stage running at $1200 just for the paint, it's going to add up fast. Haven't settled on a color, might chose something cheaper. If I do the paint and interior myself it should be fairly inexpensive. My companies headquarters is over in Norwich, UK too so I go over there a lot. Hopefully come home with some cheap used parts. If getting stuff done professionally is reasonable I might go that route too.

Solar Yellow is really spending as well. It will come together, just take your time and don't expect to be driving it soon. If you deal with a Rocky Clarke (sp) in the UK make sure it's only on a cash and carry basis. That dude is a cheat. He sold me used parts as new and said I could ship them back to UK if I didn't like them. At my expense.
