Default Newbie from Russia (1971 Cutlass Supreme convertible)

Hi Everyone!
My name is Alex, I am from Saint-Petersburg, Russia.
So I purchased a project for restoration, a second-generation Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme convertible. The car had a difficult path before it came to me: it was brought to Russia from US about 4-5 years ago in a pretty bad state. The previous owner of the car in Russia put the fully restored 455 engine and restored all electrical systems.
So my plans are:
-restore all the body (I think to make 442 clone, cause the engine and the gearbox from 442 is already installed )
-add some pro touring elements: modern and slammed suspension, willwood brakes, some interesting wheels and maybe steering rack (I know that play in the steering wheel is a feature of old american cars, but then I have to turn off the power steering and drive without it - otherwise I can not predict the steering angle and it is quite dangerous when driving in heavy traffic)
-interrior: will be fully restored stock 442 interrior

This Olds in my first oldtimer, my daily driver are 2017 Audi A5 and 2016 Mercedes-Benz AMG GLC 43
