Sounds Good to Me
Brother of The Benz,
You have the makings,as you've said, of a very fine automobile at a pitance of what one would have to pay, and then do the same repairs that you are doing.
Not many of us are as fortunate as you in finding such a jewel in the rough; just waiting to be brought to the surface.
Good luck with your effort and keep us posted as to the success of your jewel.
Happy Trails Beep Beep from the Spiderman in Houston!!!
