Re: 64 Sport Fury restoration....begun

That's great Butch. You are off to an excellent start at documenting the restoration. 

As you are using the computer as the method, be sure to routinely back up all those computer files locally or on a cloud 

"AutoResto computer software to track your restoration project" was listed on the 62-65 vendor's page a long time ago. I 
just checked and the link no longer works so I'll remove it next round of updating. If it is "easy to mess up using this 
software" then be very careful. 

The main address for the Mail List automatically sends the email to all members of the group.

Please address private email -- email of interest to only one person -- directly to that person. That is, email your parts/car transactions and negotiations, as well as other personal messages, only to the intended recipient. Do not just press "reply" and send your email to everyone using the general '62-'65 Clubhouse public email address. This practice will protect your privacy, reduce the total volume of mail and fine-tune the content signal to Mopar topic. Thanks!
