@mituadas:Are you going for cosmetics mods alone or performance ones too?
. Please let us know the list of mods that you have in mind.

Nice that you have taken up th restoration job. I would have prefered to keep it in original type I. I see that you have already got type II fenders. Keep us posted. All the best!

I would suggest you to maintain the originality and if possible get SGP parts for the restoration.
First try to get hold of a PARTS manual and a Workshop manual of SB308IN

Best of luck and try to get proper three point retractable seatbelts for your car. The present ones on your are purely cosmetic.

The floorboards are very rusty, do you plan to repair them? They look like the need to be worked upon.
