Keep the post coming, since I have a 68 Fastback I have followed a lot of your post over the past few years. Looking forward to the complete story. Using it for inspiration.

A buddy of mine owns a restoration shop. he will do the final finessing of the body work, and painting the car.




This is that troublesome right quarter. We ended up with just a skim coat of filler over mostly original metal. I was very pleased.

Time for final assembly. I'm sure I missed a few things. For one I don't have any photos of the new wiring harness. But here is what I do have.

Great thread! Thanks for sharing. I'm impressed your friend was able to shoot single stage enamel in a garage and get good results.

Currently working on a 1970 Mach 1 project. See it here: http://forums.vintage-mustang.com/vi...ode-build.html
