Automotive Restorations in Stratford Ct. The name of the body shop is "The Panel Shop". Those guys did a couple of frame rails/trunk floor areas for me a while back. The guys name is Mark Barton. A nice guy. These guys can custom fabricate almost anything for a vehicle body. They deal in a lot of the European cars, but also will do american. They're busy, so an appointment to check them out would be recommended.

HI: Well, this is a long shot, but I'm up here in Maine (hancock=across the bay from Baa Hahbah, near Ellsworth, 1/2hr from Bangor) imported my 66 vert from Pa, and have just taken it out of the resto shop in Maine(not mustang guys, but good body/paint)....trying to enjoy the car for what remains of the summer (zero--its' 43 here tonight). The car is 95% meaning that what I have left are all the things that were forgotten, not done correctly, or not thought-out correctly...mostly mechanical like diff gears for rear end, PS valve, bigger exhst sys., replmnt, engine tuning, etc. Is there a miracle out there, known to you members who performs their magic in the state of Maine, preferably midcoast, downeast, or central/northcentral Maine? Looking for someone experienced and wise in the ways of classic mustangs who can help me nail down the other 5% of stuff to make it run as good as it looks. Any help/referrals would be greatly appreciated. Since I've been here, seen 10000 street rods, but just a handfull of stangs. Any names, numbers, town addresses of these gurus hiding in the coves with their mustang magic?? Please give me a clue if you gottem! Thanks//steve

hey you are in DE right// no doubt the best choice for your is ERNIE at BDM (is that the right initials) seen their work (A+) after that certainly gotta be Mid County'/seen their work too. very good. Glaziers outstanding but expensive for sure. There is also a place Bucks county mustang, they seem OK. Coming Norther to NJ/ Gaszek Mustang restoration in Morristown has gotta be one of the best. Lastly, I hear CJ;s pony parts has a good resto shop too. On a smaller scale, I have work I sub out to welders and body men (local to me) that I could or would recommend, feel free to contact me if you needed any help

I have a 64 1/2 convertible D code. It was sitting for twenty + years with a tarp over it. By the time I got it the tarp had disintegrated. I basically need a new unibody. The car isn't in two yet but the frame rails are hurting. I'm in Central Jersey by the Jersey shore. Any ideas on where to go. Mid county in PA isn't too bad of a hike but I'd like to find someone closer.

Where ever you choose to have your Mustang painted/restored, insist on seeing their liability insurance policy. I was AMAZED to discover how few shops are properly covered. Do not take their word. Insist that you be named by the policy writer as a primary beneficiary in the event of a loss. This is dead serious business. Your car could be stolen, burned, or stripped, and you're left standing inline for compensation. I'm in a parallel business and such is standard practice.

This isn't in the North East but I stumbled upon these guys in Spring Green, WI. They do some amazing work and work on all cars not just super high end stuff. Really fun to work with as well. My car is hopefully getting painted this week. I'm anxious to see how it turns out.
