did you restore that or was it always kept so well?

if you restored it do you have a favorite place to get parts? i'm debating taking on a new project and there's a 2002 near me that i might attempt to grab. thanks!

Ireland Engineering has all the parts you need except body accessories. We imported a large chump of their parts when me and my dad were restoring his Baur.

i don't want to get ahead of myself because they might not even reply to me.

I did not restore it by myself, but have done some additional things since I got it. Ireland Engineering is a great spot, as well as Bavarian Auto. eBay also has SO many parts its crazy. These things were produced in such large numbers coming by parts seems to be a piece of cake - in most cases.
