I feel rather lucky to get it for as cheap as I did, however there seems to be some stalling on the vehicle title for it... as soon as I get a title I'll start spending money.
And yes, I realize what they sell for in good working order, I also now have a better understanding of why people will pay for one with a good body! the plasitic gets brittle in the sun, and in the cold, if I figure out how to make a mold to make replacment body panals I'm sure I would then be rich.
As it is, I'm thinking about Cotten for the body, with a few layers of some kind of reson, varnish, or shelac, then some white roofing paint, and maybe some sound deadening insulation made out of cork... just thinking that if I could get a "green" body going...
