Recently bought a project R1 off ebay, will pick the car up on Monday. I have been reading the various topics and thought I  should ask this question...what is the proper way to or protocol to have the car in an Avanti registry? I appreciate the heritage of the 63-64 R1 and R2's. Thank you in advance for any guidance 🙏

Assuming no serious rust issues, you bought a good restoration candidate.

Your car is already on the registry

Thank you. That's the car. We will have it in the air tomorrow and do a through inspection underneath. The R2 on BAT was familiar.  A YouTube series was done on the mechanical and cosmetic restoration.  The gentleman was very informative and thunk that will be a nice R2 to own. Thank you again for sharing your knowledge.

Be sure you deal with the mold properly and safely.  Mold "dust" (spores) is not something one should inhale.  Also, the mold may have already caused irreversible discoloration of the vinyl - that remains to be seen.

Thank you Dwight. Mold remediation YouTube lesson tonight. Thankfully my wife is much smarter than me. I see a hazmat suit coming!

A good respirator and eye protection is always a good move when dealing with an old interior:)

Definitely.  It looks like a pretty good dose of mold. I'll know more when it's in the garage.
