So far the project has been going well. I learned not to push him too hard early on and found the best way to get him going is to just go out and start working, once he hears me out there he will normally come join.
He did pick the car and loves all older cars. So far the work we have been doing, sanding, griding, rust repair, not very fun for a 14 year old.
Once we start on the motor, wiring, interior, etc, the excitement level should pick up.
I don't know about everyone else on here, but the part of this my son and I have both enjoyed the least is drilling out hundreds of spot welds!
I told him when we got the car going we would get him a personalized tag and the nickname of the car would be "SPOT-WELD"
