Very cool! Looks like a great project.
Time to start a build thread on your restoration

Interesting holes in the side scoop area. Do you have the side scoops? You may need to work in this area.

Nice! Make sure to check the rear upper shock mounts for stress cracks. Now's the time to weld them up.

Sounds like you're in Canada ... where are you located?

I may have passed my "best before" date, but I haven't reached my "expiry" date!
