WOW! That's lookin' GREAT Rusty!!
Brian has the sheetmetal lined up.
Test fitting the new Stang-Aholics front valance
The gas filler will have to be moved down a little because the cap hits the deck lid.
Wow! Nice work.
The wheel flares look sharp !!
Looking really nice
I have been busy working in the shop and I need to update
I block sanded the fiberglass hood
Sprayed one coat of SPI black epoxy
Two Coats of SPI Turbo primer
Block sanded again
Two coats of SPI epoxy
The fiberglass bumper did not fit our car. The center section did not line up with the lower valance and the bumper was to narrow.
I cut the center out of the bumper and had to modify the holes in the taillight panel to get the bumper lowered.
I used Duraglass to attach the brackets to the bumper. Later I added a couple layers of fiberglass to hold them in place
This shows you have much I need to add to the left side
I added fiberglass to the top to hold it in place
I clamped it to a long piece of angle and added fiberglass on the back side.
I removed the braces and clamps and finished adding fiberglass to both sides and this is how it looks now. I still have to work on the gaps.
I think the bumper looked great in the first picture where it was two pieces, you should have raised the license plate up to mount between them. Still awesome work!
I epoxy primed the bumper and test fit
It still needed a little bodywork
Epoxy primed again
This project will be on hold for a little while.
It's looking really good, keep us updated when you get back to it.
We are back working on this project. I had to do a little bodywork on the front of the fenders to get them to line up to the new front valance and epoxy primed.
Front valance and rear bumper block sanded and epoxy primed
Test fitting one more time
This thing is sharp!
We have been working on this doing a lot of little things to make it look right. The hood did not line up with the headlight buckets so I had to add fiberglass to the end of the hood.
Brian test fit all the door glass, vent windows, quarter windows, windshield and back glass moldings
This area needed a little work
I worked on the body lines
As you can see in this photo the front valance was a little high and the fender had a low spot that needed bodywork
In the middle of a lot of block sanding and looking for any imperfections
You all do fantastic looking work.
The back of the hood was sanded and epoxy primed
Block sanded the body and epoxy primed
The trunk was sanded and epoxy primed
The engine compartment was sanded and epoxy primed
Test fitting the Stang-Aholics upper and lower grille
That's going to look nice.
You know I wasn't sure how I felt about the shaved drip rails. After seeing it with paint, I like it. One less rust spot.
What color will it be?
