    I’ve sent radios to Aurora Design and was impressed. They can take any vintage radio and upgrade it with new electronics, add bluetooth, usb and mini jack. Wtf good is a radio that doesn’t work?

    This guy restored mine; he’s in Lakewood, Co.  In addition to getting the AM channel working, he added an FM board and an MP3 connection.  It works great.

    Stock radio conversions are bad ass. A company called “Aurora” makes the kits. KCW had one done on that crazy black 356.  I also did one in my Notch, love it.

    They need blasted and painted….. But no sense having seats sitting around without a car to put them in.

    Priority would be:

    1- body on pan

    2- doors on body

    3- convertible top frame repair and paint

    3- convertible top assembly/adjustment and canvas.

    4- window frame repair + chrome + assembly

     

    Then we can think about all the dumb stuff like interior, engine, bumpers, and fuel system.

    Shiney is good.  Knocked-down gloss would be good too.    Whatever u guys think would be badder-ass.

    That tag is cool.   Save and and hook it back in the seat after its reupholstered.   Pretty cool.
