'69 firebird 400. i need help restoring it! any takers?
« on: March 19, 2010, 04:04:36 PM »
i have a 1969 firebird 400, convertible, that has been sitting in my garage for quite some time... it has been many years since i have last driven it.

i live in southern california (Los Angeles to be specific) and i would love to have some help restoring it, if not, some advice from fellow firebird enthusiasts as to how  :)


let me know!
-thanks.

p.s.
my name is Gary.

Welcome to the site, Gary, and to NFTAC!  First off, let's see what you have to start with and what you have already done to it.  We need to know what shape the motor is in, as well as the interior and body.  I'm assuming, since it's been garaged, that it's had a good bit of protection and the body is fairly clean.  I'm glad to see one of these getting restored!

Now, let's get to work!
