I presume the order would be the same between a restomod and a restoration.
I am a new member of the forums, and hope to make use of the wide variety of resources available here in the very near future.
Within the next two months I plan to be the proud owner of a 1972 240z
That being said, I have no experience when it comes to cars, other than fluid checks.
While I do have relatives that are into cars, who know their way around one, and who would be more than willing to help out-I want this to be about the experience as much as it is about the car.
Supposedly the car is supposed to have a recently rebuilt motor with minimal rust in areas that are not the difference between the car being structurally sound or not. It also has new head gaskets. That's about all I know at the moment, but I am finding out more.
Now, on to the purpose of this thread.
While this is one that is in no way unique to this one car, what parts should take priorities over others?
Looking into this question didn't show much. The bulk of answers I found seemed to be as the following is laid out;
1. Take care of rust
2. Make sure engine runs
3. Under hood
I would want something a bit more in-depth. Do you guys have a process that you follow, or just fix whatever you find first no matter its importance?
I would like for you to be as specific as possible when it comes to individual parts.
Thank you for your time and I hope to become as happy with mine as the mass of you seem to be when reading through so many build guides.
