Been lurking here for a couple weeks and have started my first project. I've wrenched on our family cars and my toys and motorcycles most of my life because I'm too cheap to pay someone else to do most of it. But I've never dealt with a car that needs this amount of love before and I figured a cheap mass produced seventies land barge would be a good place to cut my teeth on rust repair, body work and the like. The subject has been immobile for 10 years. and hasn't been licensed in 17. The guy I purchased it from bought it from a friend who was going through a divorce with the intention of restoring it, as he has a nice collection of very desirable 60's and 70's Ponchos. Just never got around to it and the old girl got kicked out of her barn storage a couple years ago and was slowly becoming one with a pasture. We pulled her out and took her home and today I pulled the plugs on the 350 and they all looked pretty good. Put a mixture of JB knocks her loose and oil in to soak for a few days. Before I try and start her on a remote gas tank I'll pop the valve covers and pop some oil on the rockers to soak. Looking forward to documenting the process.
