Mine's been down since 94, so I feel your pain. I've learned more on the forums in the last few years than I ever picked up in the first 10 years I had the car and worked on it until full hibernation. I'm looking forward to getting my rewiring project going in the next few weeks.
Welcome to the group, lots of great resources on here, just take a look through the archives and you'll find lots of ideas to inspire you. :-)
