Folks, I've only been a member here a week and I've already had questions answered, and help given and, well, just wanted to say thanks a lot.
I know that I am very far from being the first person to adopt an old AS and try to rehab her, but I am the first person I know who has done this, and I think that is true for my family and friends, as well. So my wife and I are blogging the adventure as so many others have done.
If you're interested, you can see how we handle what I'm going to call a "half-monty" restoration. Half-monty because I'm not going shell-off, I'm only replacing a few sections of the floor, and I'm not even going to try to stick to completely stock/original components. We're going to use what we have that works, and replace what needs replaced with what works. This is neither an historically accurate restoration, nor a completely modern renovation. It's half of each, and thus a "half-monty."
