    I don't think $1,000 is going to get you much after paying taxes on imported parts. Start another thread in the engine section.

    I know it has been said a dozen times already, but hell, your work is awesome.

    Wow!!!!! You got some mad skills!!!

    I would be curious as to what the total cost of this restoration will be in parts alone not counting man hours......

    I understand the suspension has all new parts , did you go through the engine or just clean and spray?


    I'm looking forward to following this thread and seeing the final product

    Thank you! Yes, the suspension is all new, the engine has been opened and is in perfect condition, has a very low original mileage, i dont rember but very very low :) I only replaced the bushings and all seals, it is in perfect condition. Total cost? Oh, dont ask :D

    That's what I say if someone asks how much I've got in my car. "Don't know, don't want to know!" lol Besides, once you're driving down the road with an ear to ear grin after a massive project, does the cost even matter to you anymore?

    Look what some people spend on vacation, boating, second homes, sitting in a bar hell there's plenty of ways to piss your money away. And I've found that if you're careful and do the work yourself you can come out even or make a buck on a classic car. One thing if you put 20 k into a classic car the value of the car will eventually come up to the investment, try that with a new car........

    Well, the car (or cars as the case may be) are part of the family, right?

    Man, your metal fabricating skills are amazing.:cool:

    Boncky,
    Chlopaku...jak sie masz??? Gdzie jestes (w Polsce)?

    I haven't gone through the whole thread yet, just caught-up on the last page.

    As others have pointed out, the shipping cost is prohibitive, however if you're looking at getting some parts from over here anyways than by all means, shop around for the best prices...nothing wrong with some used stuff that's still in good shape.

    I will go to Page1 now and start the full catch-up! lol
