    Thanks, Rusty! No one ever shows the backside of stuff so you a left to wonder to what extent they went on the hidden side. If at your level you don't go for full on perfect I know I can stop being so anal about it too!

    The trunk will have upholstery if not we would make it look better.

    We decided to install a roll bar and I bought a kit from S & W for a 1968 Mustang

    We wanted to do something different so we cut about 1" off the end caps and spoiler.

    As you can see in this photo the bumper needs to be narrowed

    DSCN4477_zpsawusmd3p.jpg

    I cut the center out of the bumper and lined up both ends with the end caps.

    DSCN4484_zpsx37ufnnu.jpg

    I will have to add fiberglass to get a tight gap

    DSCN4486_zpsj1wdzeqv.jpg

    Bumper fits better now but still needs a lot of work to look right

    DSCN4519_zps15jqrf13.jpg

    The gap was larger in the middle so I added fiberglass

    DSCN4531_zpssv0gohqa.jpg

    We also added fiberglass to the bottom of the bumper

    The end caps were bolted and bonded to the quarter panel

    I also added a little fiberglass

    DSCN4537_zpsrzp6n9ov.jpg

    Bodywork ruffed in

    DSCN4544_zpsmceacmil.jpg

    We now have a nice tight gap around the rear bumper

    Epoxy primed

    Next step is to finish the bodywork on the taillight panel and rear valance

    Like the roll cage, will there be an issues in taking the inside qtr panel off now?

    That is on my wish list.

    We had to add fiberglass to the side exhaust skirts to give us something to bond to the pinch weld.

    Very nice. Love the difference molding in the light buckets makes.

    If I only had the money you would be one of the top shops on my list to get the body and paint work done. Now all I would have to do is buy the winning lottery ticket.

    Starting to fit the front apron

    The shape was wrong under the headlight buckets so we cut it apart and glassed it back together

    The spoiler was cut down and the front lip bonded back on.
