Stack of new parts, including a complete fastener set for the body and the interior. Interior parts cleaned and repainted with the correct blue lacquer. More parts cleaned and painted, ready to be installed. refinishing of the interior sail panels Each of the fins were painted by hand with black touch up paint, since the face of the vents are chrome. The working part of the vents were disassembled and painted with black enamel.
Rear end will be transported to where the car is at, and installed. New leaf springs given a coat of black epoxy as well. New 3/4" rear sway bar. Not part of the original car, but I wanted it for added stability. Box full of sandblasted and painted parts waiting to be installed My painting station in the basement. New gas tank given a nice coat of high build Chassis Saver as well. Another shot of the gas tank. Yeah, that's a slot car track that never got finished.
Finishing up the quarters with some filler. For repro quarters I think the fits was really good. PS Door jambfinish work Rockers were in good shape, so they're the originals. Just needed some finsih work Ahhh. The undercarriage painted with high build black chassis saver epoxy.
Once the quarter were fit up, there were removed and the entire area epoxy primed. When the quarters are installed, the back end of the car will be complete! Skins primed and ready to be installed... Everything gets a nice coat of epoxy primer.
Finihsing up the install with brackets on the DS... and on the PS. Now that the framerails are in time for some exciting stuff... Look ma - a see through Mustang! The quarters on both sides have been removed. A lip was left around the top and door jamb, so that the new quarters can be attached. Pretty scary!
