Hi Guys
It's been over two and a half years since I introduced myself on Trifive. Briefly, I live in South Africa, and want to restore my late Dad's 56. An attempt was made in 1985, but time and work constraints were too overwhelming. Recently a friend wanted to buy the 56, but my son didn't want me to part with it. So we have decided to take up the challenge...insanity prevailed. Since I'm retired, time is available.
So we pushed it out from under the carport, and did some superficial cleaning and assessments, and are committed and excited to tackle the project.

The car looks very different now, but I cannot upload the pics. (Perhaps files too big). Would like to post today's pics.

Today we did some superficial cleaning. Floorpans, panels etc. look intact, with minimal surface rust (not flaking at all).
I am overwhelmed by the knowledge base available through Trifive, and it makes the challenge less daunting, but nevertheless a demanding one!
Currently I don't think there are many 56's in South Africa, so the access to assistance is rather limited....so thanks (in anticipation) for the assistance I hope to receive.
