The DISSAPOINTMENT of progress
#1
O n Friday I snapped a pic of the Stang, felt so good to see it looking like a car again. Finally the the time and money was looking to be worth while. By noon on Sunday it was stripped to the bare shell, and mounted on the rotisserie. Made me want to get drunk, but then It was a happy time because now I'm in the process of cleaning the bottom, resealing the joints, then Paint!!! Yes finaly some PAINT!!! Then brake lines,fuel line, ETC! Bad pic but I put a couple others in my garage.

NICE PAPPY !!! I will be knowing that same feeling soon, Since I'm doing the same exact thing ! Put it all together..Then strip it all down AGAIN to put it on the rotisserie to do the bottom etc.

You guys are coming along better than us! We haven' touched the coupe in a long time due to problems with the Mach 1 that we still haven't ironed out! Angry

You could always use the hood for a card table with the guys from the shop.

Thanks guys... Yes it was great to know the structural part was done. Very little cutting and welding left, just some minor touch up. I think what hurt the most was having to take the SHINY WHEELS back off. I really liked the BLING. I think thats the modern word.

Hoping for some disappointing progress for myself over the holidays. Progress is progress in any flavor.

Nice work, Pappy.
