I can only say one thing.

OMFG! This thing is butchered. I'd scrap it personally but salute the guy who wants to get it in order.

It's a total disaster!! Clearly a labour of love..

For now, a customer call me and tell me he just bought a coupe from Austria.
OMG :eek:! I think your customer bought this car nearby Vienna? I saw the advertising for a long time, the seller wrote "something went wrong within the restoration...". The car was priced low - but when your customer bought the car for the price in the advertising it was still too expensive...

We started to clean and sandblast all the parts of the front and rear axle.

We found some new parts (!) and very used one.

When I cleaned the steering box, I found some cracks... We'll weld them. And the steering box is a very early one with O ring in place of the usual seal.

Wow, that's a lotta corrosion. Still, it's a hobby, and people spend money on hobbies, don't they? If he has the time, and likes to spend money on hobbies, why not? It's like a giant Metalworks kit, which I do like to build, BTW.

I'd sure like to see it restored in a decent fashion.

Del, this is not a hobby restoration; the OP is laughing and being paid by the owner/customer, who has very deep pockets, knows nothing about cars and/or needs a sanity check.
