  well I got him home Friday, washed the crud off the outside, and today I cleaned the inside. 6 years of little visitors was not kind at all. I am glad I hadn't already put a lot of work in him. once he was cleaned the only major issues are the package tray and passenger floor has some rust and all the window rubber is dry rotted and will have to be replaced. I can see there will be plenty to keep me busy for a while. will try to post some pic soon.

My 10 year old son and I are getting ready to rebuild the engine on my ex-daily driver that has been sitting for about a year.  Kind of looks like yours does.  You have inspired me to post pics and catalogue our project.  Best wishes on restoration.  Get that dub back on the road where it belongs.
