Good grief! Painting a WW Mustang to HG!

Probably what I would do...

289 cid Challenger V-8 too! Loved my little 289 when I had one. It never felt like it had enough push though and I wound up punching it out, and stroking the thing. It had lots of cajones then, but for driving around it just wasnt' the same tractable engine it had been. Like posted above, look at a 5.0L if your wanting some better performance and retain drivability.

Your legal bookcase looks just like the sectionals that I have in our library. Full of my cars, and several car books that is. It is in the library after all!

My name is David J. Midgley. But you doesn't have to call me that. You can call me David. Or you can call me David J. Or you can call me David Midgley. But you doesn't have to call me David J. Midgley....

That will be something he will treasure always, Pat. And he can pass it down to his son someday. And his son can pass it down to the next son. And on, and on, and on, and on. And it all started with YOU!

Great project! Cool car!

I sure do. I put mine in the Bullitt proof section. It's titled 68 restoration project finally begins. Here's the link. We need to stay in touch and swap ideas. Sounds like we are pretty much building the same car.

I rented a shop just up the street from our home to do the body work and paint on the Mustang. The price was right and it’s so close Kurt can walk there after school. The best part is there’s enough two more cars. I think I’ll have to get another 68 Charger so I can follow Kurt (a black Charger this time)

After getting the new shop cleaned up we started disassembling the front of the Mustang and test fitted the new hood Kurt bought in Carlisle last week.
Thanks!
Pat

We pulled the front fenders off and found no rust on either. We knew that the car had some frontend trauma at some point in its life when Kurt bought the car as evident by the inter fender & core support wrinkles. So far the only rust we have found in the front of the car is around some earlier repairs. The right side front apron will get replaced (battery corrosion) the radiator support with cross member and the left side coil spring cover.




Only the left side coil spring cover had rust

The left side front fender apron we will metal bump out, just need to do a better job on the replacement panel between the front and back aprons.



How can you tell a repro fender from a NOS fender???
Thanks!
Pat

We started to remove the radiator support & the strut rod braces. They for the most part were rust free just bent up from a fender bender. The right side front apron need to be replaced as it was rust from the battery and had a so-so repair job. The left side looks like we can bump the dent out.
Thanks!

Pat














I surprised Kurt with a name for the shop
