“Seems to have some sort of issue starting- starts about half the time.”

This shouldn’t really be hard to diagnose and get working again. I’ve had the occasional poor start for a while and it turned out to be the mass cable from battery to block and body. Re-soldering the connectors made a huge difference. It now starts every time. Another thing to check is the white fuel relay (behind the ash tray) and possibly the fuel injector relay (confusingly called radio suppression relay, under the hood near the left shock tower). Here again the soldered joints often fail and can be mended by carefully re-soldering. Your car looks so nice, it would be a shame to take it off the road and use for parts.
