about to begin a full body-off frame restoration on my 1960 CDV. It will get turned into a kustom.... ie metalflake paint, airbagged, tuck n roll interior etc...

just wanna hear peoples tips from anyone who has undertaken such a task... can be a small as make sure you label everything, right through to technical help.

THANKS !!!!

Have never done anything like that but a few things one should look out for:

If there's any corrosion in chassis, floors, or major suspension components, FIX IT now, otherwise that cool custom paint may be in for a bad time.

That's about the only caveat I have. Keep us posted!

I forgot to mention... FULL RESTO... means cut every little pice of rust out... get all metal right before any paint goes on...

This is a keeper...and I will be doing it right.
