So i hope this means you're back in the country.
Are you going for the restored look or get it mechanically right & revel in the scruffy missing interior & trim look? Maybe scuff off the worst flakes & linseedoil/clearcoat it to preserve the 'history'?  It's pretty liberating not having to worry about keeping something perfect.

Yep and 100% yes to the as is where is part.

Tell me more about preserving the paint? It tends to rub off easily on fingers.

Depends what you're trying to preserve & what it's like underneath.  A plastic scotchbright pad will dull shiny paint but will also remove loose paint, if you've seen my car lately you'll see i just mixed turps & linseed oil & brushed it on, dries to a matt finish & brings old paint back to life, for a short time, then it goes yellow or brown tinged as it oxidizes.
Clearcoat doesn't do that.  I've heard people prefer a semi-matt clearcoat as opposed to a gloss.

Amy I forgot to look for those parts you asked for, are you sorted, or still need?

awesome car , look forward to seeing progress, patina and rowdy all the way. 13b would be best bet IMO, easier to get parts

That's no worries, lost motivation for a while there anyway. Can't remember the list I sent you but do need a lot - mostly on the hunt for a steering box and drag link to start the conversion.

Will try get the engine out and check how fiddled with it is haha
