At least it looks GREAT.
My Billy Crystal impression. She looks marvelous.
The chrome was the worst. 6 years of build up.
Cleaned up nicely, it looks good.
all ready for the HRPT now!!!
Maybe.... If it comes near me again.
That was one of my original reasons for doing EFI swap.
it ended in Iowa. Generally they start where they ended. I hope it goes North East from there. The South in June is miserable!
That seems to be the latest consensus that it was going north east
sooooo, that should be doable for a least a stop or two eh?
Need to find a copilot though. No way I'm bringing my wife and daughter. They'd want the top up the entire time.
Red headed college students love the top down. They like verts too
That's a beautiful car, well worth the effort.
Thanks. It looks much better in pictures than in real life.
The body shop I had do the frame rails just quoted me for a repaint. I'm the fence about it.
drive it a while and enjoy it. It will get more dings. Trust me!
You shut your potty mouth.
My plan was to just drive it. I'm not l looking for a show car at all. The issue is that big dent and chip it got whilel at one of the shops. It's on the driver door and makes me crazy.
So if I have the driver side repainted it would be covered by insurance. Then it's not going to match worth a crap to my 20 year old flat wavy orange peel paint job. So it seems to make more sense to paint the whole car.
The estimate paint the whole car. Fix the rust on the doors, block and straighten the wavy quarters was $3700. insurance should cover about $1200 of that. So likely I'd be putting out about $2500.
If its a reputable body shop that does quality work (within a reasonable time frame), a complete for $2500 is a steal!
It's a very respectable shop. Family owned for over 50 years. The owner is a mustang fanatic. He has 2 classic mustangs and really has a passion for them. He's not a restoration shop especially. But has done a lot of full restorations. Mostly mustangs.
They just did my rear frame rails. The paint he did on my rear valance Turned out great.
Here's his 69 fastback.
I'd jump all over it for that price. That's a sweet looking 69 that he has.
