Adam,
Nice work, keep us updated. I'll have to start a thread on my build I've been working on. Nice to know I'm not the only one with a messed up cowl.

Well Adam, you have me inspired. I've just started to dig into my 67. It needs floors left front shock tower, right front apron and battery tray and possibly a cowl. The front frame rails aren't rusted, but they're pretty banged up on the bottom. Since the body gaps line up, I'm unsure whether I should replace them, or just bang on them a little when I'm doing the floor work. I'll have to get my log started....

i find reading these build threads equal parts encouraging and depressing. encouraged that so many other people are in the same boat as i am, and depressing how slowly it can go.

After a long time away Im back working on the car heres what ive done

The drivers quarter was riveted at the top so i spot welded it than cut the rivets filled the hole and slowly spotted the whole thing together



Finished up (mostly) the drip rail shave


started Sanding down the roof quarters and door jams and tail panel along with sandblasting areas needing it and the engine bay inside and out









than I used matrix 550 etch primer and primed the back half of the car






Last i welded up the shock towers drilled the shelby drop and filled the original holes (still need to grind smooth)than used chassis saver on the inside of the roof and structure after a good sand and clean





More progress to come soon as i have more time to work on the car again

ground it down


front edge of firewall replaced


than I followed up with the same on the other side

lower cowl welded in (used the old upper to line it all up


than I picked up this fiberglass front clip for the car
