    Finally getting some good traction on my coupe again after too many years. Going to set this thread up to follow the progress. Updates may not come too often but I will definitely keep moving forward. I want to get this car back on the road ASAP.

    We had to cut out the frame rails and torque box and grind down the welds. The 5 frame rail holes in the pic were actually ripped out during the accident.

    Here's the booty shot. Needs some work here too.

    She will be back on the road. Just trying to collect some parts then make another trip out to Indy.

    Major operation !!!
    First picture made me a bit sick to see this , although it isn't mine.
    Good luck on the repair and take your time to fix it the right way.

    It has been cut up for a while now but "life" has intervened and taken priority. Now it seems like we are back on and we should be able to keep the steam up.

    I have absolute confidence this puppy will be back on the road. When the weather gets a little better in South Dakota I will start wrenching on my Mustang.

    The front is the same as the previous photos of the blank firewall. Waiting on a few parts to be delivered and either the front or the passenger quarter/tail panel will be next. More pics to come soon.

    The car is still in Indiana, Mike but we are moving forward to get it to a roller and get it back here to complete the rest of the work.
