Bob,
The black Charger project will keep me off the couch and in the shop! That is why I bought it as I got to have something to do!
Thank You!

We started on the right door glass and installed the left door panel.









As we upgraded to the deluxe interior we need to make a small brace for the deluxe door pulls so we used the old regulator track as it looks like the right size.












The panel fit great and looks cool, just a few details finish and on to the right side.
Thanks
Pat

What amazes me is the interest and motivation shown by Kurt....he has kept on this project like a bulldog........
Most kids I know today can't hardly keep interested or motivated in anything longer than 5 minutes.
What a great kid! And what a treasure he has learned to create. I bet he is just chomping at the bit now waiting for that last nut and bolt to be installed, crank it up, and roll that baby out for its inaugral cruise!! WOOT!

From the beginning to end, you can visually see how Kurt has grown/matured. What have you decided for insurance? I assume an agreed value, hopefully one that does not limit Kurt too much on driving it. I recently switch from American Collector to Heacock.

Thumbs up

I noticed how careful you were all through the build protecting components from damage, very smart as usual

Sorry for the delayed response as I was out of town working the Miami boat show. We will have Hagerty insure the Mustang as I use them on my other old cars. We need to come up with a value for the car soon!

Thank You!

We bought the hood as with most of the new parts from CJ pony parts. It is not the Ford tooling hood but it fit good and only needed a little work to fit great.
Thanks!

We put the driver’s seat in tonight











After locating the seat holes with an awl from the bottom we used a soldering iron to open the holes.









Kurt takes up a little more room in the front seat then he did 2 ˝ years ago!
Thanks!

I remember when he rebuilt that seat, I think it was the first item on the restoration list. Now it's one of the last items to be installed.

So for 2.5 years both of you have been very dilligent in making sure the car is not damaged during assembly and then you let Kurt sit in the drivers seat with a dirty sweetshirt.....C'mon Man! (just kidding )

I echo a lot of the recent comments, once again, great job.

I see this event has the potential as a interesting book. Father-Son releationship over a 2 1/2 year period focusing on both persons' view points, life and the restoration of a Mustang. I believe a lot of Mustang restorers would obtain some great restoration pointers from your story.
