Hi Everyone. I've just purchased an old Floride that's sat in a shed for 35 years (Rip Van Floride?) It's basically sound with a little rust in only a couple of places. It's been modified with a 1400 engine, and radiator at the front. The engineering wasn't good with crimped radiator and fuel hoses and rubbing brake lines. Every bit of rubber on the car has perished. The idea is to bring the exterior of the car back to original. The interior has been re-upholstered and needs doing again. It has high backed bucket seats which I'll keep. Plan A is to put in an electric drive train. It will only be used locally so I won't need a lot of batteries and I can re-charge them off my solar roof panels. So far the car is stripped down to every last nut and bolt (including a few imperial ones) and I'm waiting to get it blasted so that I can start on the body. The forums here have been very helpful so I thought I'd join and document my progress.
I live in Bridgetown W.A.
Regards to all, Phil.
