New Member, Need Help.
« on: April 10, 2017 - 05:36:56 pm »
Hello Everyone,

I am a newbie, and know fairly little (basically squat) of car restorations. I bought a 1970 'Cuda, because I've wanted one since high school. Now I need to get this beauty on the road but need a lot of HELP! Anyone located in the bay area that would be willing to help a brother out!?
Right now, I am trying to figure out some electrical issues but hardly know a damn thing about how electrical things work other than theirs a positive and negative. I wouldn't mind paying someone to help me as well, as long as they teach me a few things along the way.

Let me know if you can help out.
This thing needs a total restoration, but my immediate goal is to get it running on the road, which the motor isn't in bad condition.

Sorry the pic looks terrible.
Thanks!

Welcome to the site I'm in Rodeo, grew up in Richmond and know El Sobrante well. What are your issues with the wiring and what are your plans for the car? I can probably help depending on what days you have open. PM me for more info.
