Welcome to the Forums!
If you haven't picked up on it yet, a lot of us here request pictures - a lot of them, from each project.
What a great project to involve the family as a work team and a great way to teach the kids some independent thinking and instill a bit of common sense and pride in workmanship.
The "search" function in the upper right pull down will soon become your best friend. Many have found the "advanced search" or the "google search" to be more beneficial...well, to be honest, the simple "search" function really sucks - go advanced or google from the start.
There are many threads detailing rebuild, repair, and restoration - take your time to decide in advance just how will your attack your renovations, an hour or so researching a project here will save many in trying to figure out just how it "is supposed to be done". No sense in reinventing the wheel. I would venture to guess just about any question about 70's Sovereigns has been addressed SOMEWHERE here in the Forums.
