Its worth deciding what is and isnt acceptable, how much work you want to do etc. What constitutes a project to you. CCI always seem to have a few sound shells available so you could start from there, acquire bits here and there and end up with a finished car to keep the levels of uncertainty low.

'Barn finds' do still turn up needing varying amounts of work and theres occasionally a decent accident damaged car like the 3 litre S that recently changed hands on here where you can see what you are getting into and know where you need to get. As Im sure youve seen from this forum and elsewhere they are not bad cars to work on; Some parts are reasonable, others such as genuine front wings and front valances tend not to be. If you can weld and have somewhere undercover and well lit to work there's not much to worry anyone with average mechanical skills really.
