How many of you guys don't have FB!

44-years old and I felt like my wife and I were the last hold outs.

alright FB boycotters, here are a few posts to keep everyone up to speed


the car is at a shop and about a month away from paint. I'll cover the major updates



cut out rust and replaced only sections of metal that needed it. i started with the driver floor and cut the whole left side out. taht was a nightmare so that's where i decided to keep as much original metal as possible. this included spots in floor, back end of both rear quarters, trunk drops, gas tank ring, right front frame rail at bumper bracket attach, and lower cowl


epoxy primed the interior, then shot with Lizard Skin


epoxy primed undercarriage and welded in Tin Man SFCs, driveline ring, and torque boxes



reassembled dash prior to welding in cowl


paint scheme will be wimbledon white with Ivy Green stripes. its a 65 but will have 66 side scoops, Cobra Auto fiberglass hood, and Maier stage 1 fiberglass front fenders (leaning toward 16x8s). i opted to go Ivy Green on the dash to tie in the stripe color. the original interior was Ivy Gold. i'll likely tie that in as well as the white (3 tone).


Cheers



Cheers

No Matt, you are not the last hold out. I have never had a need for social media, phone and email work fine for me, but I am old and set in my ways.

i also replaced the brake/clutch pedal bushing w Drake kit, wiring harness was rebuilt, and clutch spring replaced. rebuilt the heater box too. took full advantage of having that cowl out.

Looks great. I see the corner of another fastback in one of the photos. You must have your hands full.

Great project and great progress as well! Y’all all no where near the last hold outs... myself, and a band of non-FB rebels are still saying we have no use for “stalkbook”. Excellent father/sons Man time project. I will continue to watch from the forums portal.
