I am in the Houston area.  I have a Cavalier 72.  It is in fair/good condition.  I was considering a restoration and doing it myself.  I would farm out many of the painting and detail work.  I would do the disassembly and reassembly parts.  Where is the best resource to do this?  I'm a big Youtube fan when it comes to car and appliance repair.  Is there something like this for my round top CS-72?  Also, any recommendations for people/companies to use in the Houston area would help a ton.  Thanks.

Not sure why the photos came out sideways.  Does anyone know how to fix that?

      Both the upper and lower sections of the compressor come out together. Remove the bottle stack and the glass door as well as the coin door.
If you're a car guy you won't need any U-tube help putting it back together, best to just ask here.

The best thing ever is of course your phone, take photos as you go , bag and tag everything as you go and keep photos in a file for future completion.
