Welcome from Virginia. Sounds like a great father/son project. When my son and daughter were very young I had to store my 73 convert away because of lack of funds and time to rejuvenate her. When my son was 15 we pulled the 73 out of the barn and began the restoration. Great times!

Welcome from W. TN. Great opportunity to spend some time with your son and build great memories. Like the others have said, no bad questions to this group. We have all been where you and your son are going. Believe it or not, we came out the other side as well. The advice to take as many pictures as you can is very true. Even of the goofy little things that you would never ever think you would need to. IT may not be that item that you need to research later, but something nearby. I have 100's of pictures of my teardown and build up plus other low mileage original cars I have documented. Another item to consider is to invest in Ziploc baggies and wire tags. Bag and tag everything immediately after you remove it. You will be glad to have those hard to find nuts and bolts when it goes back together possibly months or years later. Most importantly, enjoy the time with your son. It is priceless!

Sorry I had problems with my log in. I am grandfathered in and don't have to worry about emisions. Cali has a moving date for emission regulation
