    This is very true. They have another that puts smaller lights more out wards. I'm not too much a fan of the original vintage styling lights.

    Glad to know it's not dead.. I actually like coming here.

    Got my sheet metal in.. Sketching out a tentative plan to start on this.. But I think I got a good starting point for it.

    I'll post pics here today maybe on what I have for sheet metal. But I ended up ordering about $300 of it to start it up.

    Most replacement metal made is from other countries. So it's gonna be part Detroit and Taiwan haha

    So it's been a while since I last posted.. Full update has arrived. So between working lots of overtime and then family time.. I've gotten a few things done with a few hours here and there.

    Started out after removal of the front driver fenders.. Removing a portion of the inner fenders.. First we drill out the spot welds







    Here is where we find some more rust.. Nothing new to most gen 1 mustang restorations.


    I'll post more later today.. This is just the start.

    So with removing the inner fenders and seeing rust.. We have replacement parts ready to go.. So some photos are going to have some mock ups of the replacement panels.

    So we decided to move on to the interior.. The firewall is ate up with rust.. Gen 1 mustangs are notorious with water leaks at te cowl area.. So floor boards are sometimes are bad as well.

    Seats removed and carpet removed.



    Here we see the floor covered in roofing tar.. This was a headache.. We had a slather of tire and then had tin pop riveted in and more tar slathered on top of that and then a roofing shingle!!!


    After cleaning for a few hours and a body saw later.. I've removed a portion of the floor and the seat riser.


    Here is a quick mock up of the new floor panel. Not welded in just a visual idea.



    More to come later...
