where did you get your chassis from? mine might need one in the future - where are you getting parts from for the restoration?

I might be getting rid of my rear seats if you are looking for something let me know - or if you find some parts for early 110's let me know also

Got the chassis from RN on sale. I think they are still on sale.

I will be getting parts from RN and other locations.

My plan is to;

get new shocks and springs
Fix all issues with bulkhead
new headliner
remove rust on all various parts
clean up engine and paint
fix any unknown issues (those found during the dismantling phase).

I'll look at the frames there - I am going to have my headliner recovered locally they want 275 for all 3 pieces and installed - I think Im missing the vertical piece that fits above the rear door though

Ill be watching this restoration as my guess is we are in the same boat with a car of this age

235/85 16 - I think they are basically brand new and the xzl tires on the wolf rims were from 1994 I switched them out and donated them to the classic

once I had the wheels off I saw how rusted the spring seats were so I ordered 2 from paddocks

There were three pieces for the back, covered with some type of material. Mine were pretty ratty so I removed them awhile back. Looks like you are also missing the headliner.

I have made a little more progress. Floors are out and only 2 more bolts to remove and the tub should be free. Then on to the front. My goal is to have the body minus bulkhead off next week.
