    It's just a hobby, so it may take a while. Im gathering parts at the moment and started work on the nose panel.
    Thanks,
    Jeroen

        Thanks for sharing your new project with us Jeroen and Welcome! Looks like a pretty descent car to begin with of course you'll know for sure once you start tearing into it. Best of luck with it and looking forward to your progress updates.

            Jeroen,

            Good luck with your new project. It will be interesting to see how it goes for you. I have a friend in the Netherlands who fully restored his 356 A to a high standard, I am sure this forum will assist you in the tasks ahead.

                    Took me 8 years, but it was a lot of welding work.
