Default Project Live Wire

Hey guys. Im building a 69 pro touring nova. Im 17 so its kind of a budget build. For a 17 year old i know a good amount about cars but any info you guys have helps.
im calling this project "livewire" because its going to be a pearl orange that looks similar to the mountain dew livewire. Now about the car. i bought the car in the intent of doing some light body work and then spraying it. Well that plan changed. The car ended up going down to bare metal and getting a few panels replaced. As of right now the motor is about to come out so i can do some smoothing to the firewall. Then the body work begins.

Nice to see someone your age interested in some old metal. My advice would be not to take the project to far. Get it drivable and enjoy it on a light budget and you can always improve it down the road when you have more funds available.

Great advice. If they stay off the road to long it's hard to keep motivated. If your young storage can be a problem.
