Learning a new platform

Hey! Happy this form exist. My nephew just inherited his dads(my brother) base 2006 Pontiac Solstice and it's in need of some maintenance from sitting and only being started and driven a few times. Looking to help him learn how to work on/ build cars the right way and restore his dads car in the process. I'm very familiar with the Mitsu 3000gt platform and cant wait to learn this one.

And then there's me.

I can tell you how to fix a '68 to '72 GM A-body though.

Driving and working on a Sly 2008 Solstice GXP 5spd 260/260, and the worst-built 2012 LS3 Camaro 1SS to escape from Oshawa.

Gone but not forgotten:
2007 Solstice GXP 5 speed 290/340

Stored and needing to part ways with a 1970 Skylark Custom convertible I have owned since 1989 and turned into a GS455 clone. 462 with 7/8 primary headers, adjustable roller rockers, TA Performance Stage 1 aluminum heads, auto, Chevy 12 bolt, 3.31:1. Sadly a project car now but a driver from '89 to '06.

Buy this: The Solstice Book by Gary Witzenburg. The author followed the car from concept to production.
