    I restored way worse when as a student restoring old Volvos and an old Mercedes 508 Postbus made into a camper. The cab structure is a question of taking a high-speed angle grinder with cutting blade, take out the rotten stuff well back into solid steel, then remodel the missing structure...

    I am now going to restore the 1973 (or 1965) M51A2 and want to paint it back into the original colors. The doors need some welding work and also the front and back parts of the left fender, in the bent area. Also, I threw a bucket of cheap water-based paint on top of everything, including the...
