Obviously I'm new here, I've read a little bit already, but I'm happy to be here.

I was on facebook a bit, but I honestly care very little for facebook. So I'm here.

I'm asking for pointers tho. 

So, in mid 2014 my family kinda fell apart, and we stumbled on a 1984 Chevrolet Fireball (G30 5.7L V8) 

We lived in it for a year and a half, replaced the heater and repaired it's TH400 Transmission. After that, we moved into a moral on Route 40 in Baltimore, and since then, the Chevy has sat. However, in early 2018 we replaced the battery and got it moving, where we parked it at a storage facility, where it's been, as of today. I'm worried about it's conditions, and would like to restore it. I just know little about restore an old motor home.

I can already pretty much assume that the engine is going to need a complete rebuild, I've considered price options, and who knows what would be cheaper, but I think a rebuild is a better idea, to try and keep the engine as original as possible.
