Hello all, I'm a new member to the forums. Had a Dime in High School and have missed it ever since. Got introduced to the 510Keeper a few months back and happily now I'm
starting my 510 project.
This is how it looked when I bought it from James.

Starting to make progress. 

 

Short story on the way to Canby my part time helper and buddy blew up his wagon. Well after a 6-7 weeks he's back.

 

I guess he didn't know i have the parts and engines he needed to get his car back on the road faster.

 

Resanding and sand blasting areas of the car that flash rusted and sealing those areas asap

 

Melted all the lead out

Someone installed a NOS quarter at some time and leaded it

Talked Ron in to some nice Recaros, my fav
