Default '65 Coupe Progress

We finally worked out all the wrinkles with the MTF side scoops, did a last primer coat and are now ready to start jamming the car. As mentioned previously, the color will be emberglo, done with base coat/clear coat. The scoops were definitely not as easy as the video made them look but the results should be worth the extra work. I am still worried about the alignment of the front edge of the scoop and the door. We will know more when the doors go on. To date and including the final paint material, I have approximately $2000 in material costs for the paint. That includes everything from sand paper to thinners, tape, masking paper, etc. I will attach photos although they aren't the best quality. The car has been totally reworked on a rotisserie and includes installation of the Mustangs Plus Chassis Strengthening Kit, installation of a 351W, Tremec 5-speed, 2000 Explorer 8.8 traction-loc rear with 355 gearing and disc brakes. GT front and rear valances, Shelby hood. Unisteer power steering. Opentrack front suspension. Hedman headers. 620 coil springs. '66 motor mounts. 4.5 mideye rear springs. '76 Granada front disc brakes. Export brace and Monte Carlo bar. Griffin radiator. KYB gr2 shocks. NPD emberglo Pony interior kit. 15" Magnum 500 wheels. SSBC booster/master cylinder. Retrosound radio. American Autowire wiring harness. Too much to list it all but there it is.

Just curious. Why aren't the doors on in this stage?

Slim - We haven't installed the doors to make the jaming easier. After we jam everything, we will install the doors before applying the basecoat.

You mentioned concern for how the scoop would match. When I've had doors off first concern is aligning to quarters and rockers then fenders to door. Just me!

Default Doors

We have had the doors on and off several times for fit. The last time on the fit was great. The front line of the side scoops fit over the original fender panel. I am not sure how this will look with the door in place.
