hi pat,
i'll be another follower of this great thread! our sons have been showing a little interest in the idea of restoring/building a car - especially since we have had the bullitt... not sure if it would a mustang, but i hope so!

After removing the radiator support we pulled the motor & trans to make some room for the inner fender repair. Then we removed the front & back glass.


Kurt love using the power tools!


Having fun removing the rusty header bolts.

















We used a razor knife to cut the rubber around the windshield to help remove the glass.





It was great to see no rust in either window frame.
Thanks!
Pat

Kurt & I are still disassembling the car just a little slower as Kurtís school work has been heavy. He showed me his report card today with 5 Aís and 1 B for a 4.06 gpa. Cost me $100.00 but he is putting the money in the car! I call that a win win!
Thanks!
Pat




Who makes/sells the gasket for the quarter vent air box???



Here you can see the original light green color as this was the 1st time the quarter vent have been off

Awesome progress. I see threads like this and it almost makes me want to start doing a complete tear down of my '65. Almost. The 4 speed rebuild will come this winter, then we'll see after that. Keep up the good work. Also, nice job on the amount of pictures.

Here are a few pictures of the quarter vent air box before & after.




Small repair with 5 minute epoxy.

Re-caulked the inside with black seam sealer




All the parts cleaned up great and I used satin clear coat to bring the gray color of the box out. I was also able to reuse the rubber gasket ( have yet to find anyone who makes a new gasket)
Thanks!
Pat

Very nice work. What a great project. What car is under the cover in the background on one of those pics? Looks like a 68' GTX???

The reason I ask is I used to own one in High School....

Just curious.

Real nice job it's looking good so far I wish to have one of them for myself some day. I like the step by step shots.

It is a 67 GTO that belongs to a good friend! Soon there will be another friend with his 72 Dodge Challenger that he plans on restoring.
Thanks!

Kurt & I cut out two rust holes in the right side shock tower. They rusted where the aprons are pinched welded on. Then we cut some 16 gauge patches, using the old cut outs for templates. Then it was time for Kurt’s 1st welding job!
Thanks!
Pat









A little hammer & dolly work







Not bad for his 1st time! After a little grinding it will look great!

Great work. Mine was rusted out in the exact same places on the apron. I'm really enjoying this thread. I give it up to you guys for doing the work yourself. I don't have the knowledge to do a lot of this stuff, but I'm learning on my project as it goes. Again, great thread and I'll be keeping up with it.

We finish the repair to the right side aft apron and tried our new pinch welder. The pinch welder worked great just need to preset the timer as to get the right weld.
