General restoration process
« on: June 07, 2018, 01:34:04 AM »
Hello everyone,

My first car is a 1980 Pinto and I have had it ever since. It is all original (with the exception of upholstery work done in the 00's). I have never actually restored a car before, but I would love to learn to do the work myself.

Is there anyone with a video or advice on how to restore/take apart parts such as interior? Are there certain areas I should focus on first?

Thank you!
