finally moved into a house with a garage and started working on this mustang about 1.5 years ago.


i had just finished making the rotisserie and moved the car off the temporary dolly.  i was pretty nervous the first time i flipped this car around!


after a lot of structural metal work, i media blasted the car


made my own set of subframe connectors.  nothing on the market was what i wanted.


replaced more sheetmetal.  both sides, outer wheelhouses, trunk floors, quarter panels, not to mention all the patch panels...



finished fitting the doors, trunk lid, quarter extensions, valance.  then glazing, sealing and fill priming...




i've been working on mocking up the engine, transmission, cooling, etc.  TFS high ports, scattershield and a victor junior have created a challenge.  finally finished up the clutch linkage, modifying the headers (had to completely relocate two tubes.  i've sliced up the shaker and have finally have a legitamate plan to fit it under the hood and retain the vacuum system and external appearance.  it's about 1/2" high in the picture.

i've done everything myself so far.  the motor machine work/assembly, third member setup will be the only major things i'm not going to do.

i'm not married (and the lady friend hates my hobbies!) so this is one of the things i do in the spare time.

i am no expert but have  sanded many cars and wet sanded forever,sand again,primer,sand,repeat,repeat..lol

body work is definetely a patient work of art..

IT takes Patients...LOTS...

the color scheme will be as close to factory as possible including the undercarriage (gray/olive/metallic dearborn batch color) with any oversprays, engine compartment (semigloss black) and the exterior is candyapple (basically a base red).  the mach one's had reflective side stripes (mine had the gold option) and the hood is painted a low gloss black.  the interior is deluxe black with red inserts.

Ugly?  Easy now -- that's my baby and it's got lots of unique character!  When I drop that built 445" stroker in it you won't have any time to "pull over to let me pass" because I'll have already blown past you when you figure out what the hell was that loud noise behind you . . .
