I have been thinking about building a Mustang for a while.

I bought this 67 fastback in March.

After much thought, I decided to go ahead and epoxy primer everything. No sense in having to remove all the rust again. Plus it makes me feel like I have accomplished something!

I went ahead and extended the front frame rails toward the rear with some heavy gauge metal. Then I will install the inner floor supports over the heavier duty frame rails. This is the point that the Sub-Frame brace will attach and tie in to the rear spring mounting point.





I fabricated the rails using a plasma cutter and a square to guide the cutter for a straight cut.

I installed two new torque boxes. You sure can have some unexpected rust underneath the old ones

Installed the roll bar, seat pans and cut a hole for the shock tower conduit.

Roll bar.. (bad picture quality)



Seat pans..


Shock tower conduit for A/C lines, one heater hose and the battery cable.

I installed the clutch/brake pedal roller bearing assembly. I thought this was going to be difficult. However with the assembly out of the car, it was a 15 min job.

I fitted the Brake/Clutch pedal backing plate. Good thing I test fitted the Brake/Clutch assembly. 3 hole were cross threaded. And the backing plate holes did not align correctly. I used a die grinder to enlarge the holes to fit.



Also welded the hydraulic clutch backing plate. No hole in the firewall would align. So I welded up the non used ones, and used the die grinder to add the ones I needed.

What's your plan for front suspension?
Why not just remove the shocktowers?
