I had no comments lately as there was no progress, now there have been a lot of progress

I did sand the car completely

then the fastback kit got in Spain

when I sent the car to a paint job place, and stripped apart

and now is taking shape again!

and more shape

and even more shape!

Now is looking far better than lately, the paint job place had the car 10 months only stripping it out, but mounting looks simpler to them, not sure why

Yes indeed you do not see many mustangs in Spain and very fewer fastbacks, to be honest most provably I am the only freak to do a coupe to fastback conversion here, so expensive the import taxes for the parts, labor and issues had on the way, but if it works then it worth

I've enjoyed reading your thread, Mawa. Ordinarily, I'm against a fastback conversion, but I think if ever there was a candidate car, you've got it. Best wishes on your conversion- you're going to have a really cool car soon, turning Spanish heads as well as anyone else who happens to see you drive by. You're really getting into the thick of it. It is fun to watch as a bystander.

If I can offer one bit of advice, it would be this: change your signature!

Thanks a lot!
You know when you are thinking too much and the car takes too much, crazy ideas come to your head. And fastback was the craziest so I decided to do it. Thanks for your support

Hi All,

During long long time the threat has been quite not active, my father did passed away and I have had a lot of work.

He did passed away the same day we did put the Shelby hood pins. We did it together so I feel it special.

The was sanded by me, the picked and cutted by mechanics in a repair garage I trust but they always take so long. Finally last week came wheedled to home where I painted the interior and today was picked up for a paint workshop to be finished.

Here some pics attached from the process

Almost ever sheet metal is new which is quite cool ant the structure is reinforced, also cool. New welding as well.

Here is the interior after changing the steering wheel, adding a gt350 tribute gauge, and tint the panels and repairing the dash.

And also on while picking it up to the paint shop

Hi all, I have finally received from CJ pony parts the right rear window. they have covered the window, the shipping and the customs, so I cannot give a better feedback, excellent support in International deals.

So in the paint shop the have started sanding a bit, and giving some filler to the parts joints and welding. Next week I guess they will advance more.

They told me that the target is to finish it in three weeks, one has passed already so... counting down, it will be in approximately 2 weeks.

Here some more filler preparing it to sand a bit.

They are not going too fast but the project in general has been extremely slow so I keep it calm!
