I like what you've done so far, you aren't afraid or discouraged by a little rust. Also that truck is too cool.

Well done on getting the rear end out. How did you remove the front spring eye bolts? I'm assuming they were frozen. I have to cut one out but it was a real pain. Any tricks?

Thanks guys,

The guys I work with don't appreciate the work that is going into this car, lol..

As far as progress, I got to work for almost 2 hours today..

I was able to tack down the center of the trunk floor, an fit and tack one trunk extension..

There was multiple layers of metal riveted over rotted metal, screen in other spots, all then smoothed over with bondo..
All getting cut away..



Still have to tack the trim panel on the rear, and make a small patch where I cut the floor a bit longer than the patch panel
(should have waited for it to get here before cutting, lol) but it's progress..

I will probably do a roll on bedliner coating on the floor like I did in my Roadrunner.



Next up, right side trunk extension, rear trim, then cut off the quarters!

I was lucky, and shockingly, mine were not frozen

I got a little bit of garage time again today..
Got a quarter cut off, and the new one fit.
I need to order some outer wheelhouses, wire brush the surface rust behind the quarter, and get some POR to paint it with.





But I did test fit the quarter... going to be MUCH better

I received a few more parts this week.

Got some new tail lights (lenses, buckets, bezel, all the screws, etc) new fuel filler (with gasket and screws) new gas cap, and not shown, but got new reverse lights (bezel, gasket, lens, etc) that will go into the new rear valance. I also got the new outer wheelhouses yesterday.

Later I am going to see if I can make a new top for the fuel cell so I can attach it to the stock fuel filler..

I think once I get a trunk lid, and rear bumper, everything behind the doors will be rust free..
Then I have hours of welding to fully weld everything out.

Still have to do cowl and floors before I can say I am done with rust.... I can't wait!!

Anyway, couldn't resist a little test fit of lights, and fuel filler/cap



Decided last night to get a jump on the weekend and starting to fit the wheel house.
Lower part of trunk extension needs to be trimmed once quarter is fit,
you can see white line in lower left corner of picture where I started to mark it.
At least they mentioned that trimming is required in the part description.
(it is listed for a 1965-1970 Mustang, and we all know the body style changed in 67)

Coming along quite nicely, you are doing some very nice work. Skinning the quarter is definitely the way to go when the rest of the panel is rust free.
