Try to scrounge up sutible reference materials before you tackle
your project. These can be books from the library, internet sites like
this one, magazines, talking to people, or any other items related to
your vehicle. Things like parts availability and sources are a big
concern, especially when you are up nights wondering where you'll get that
rust free fender or much needed headlight switch. Just getting to know
your NAPA counter man well can be a huge help to your goal. Remember,
finding the right parts at a good price is a valuable skill for anyone
to possess, hot rod or not.
