Hello from Minneapolis

I am an owner of 8 vintage three speeds here in Minneapolis. I am currently restoring a 1956 Humber that was in rough condition. I am going through some of the conflicts that I'm sure every restorer goes through. Replace the rims with modern alloy rims? Repaint the frame and fenders? Powder coat? Keep the front dyno hub? Replace the battered fenders or pound out the dents and dings? I was able to clean up the steel rims with ooo steel wool and vinegar but there is some pitting. I am sure I will find a wealth of information on this site. I am happy to be on board.
