Just last week there were some fibreglass wing moulds for '71-73' Mustangs on Ebay UK. May still be up? Given your fab skills you could surely make your own with the moulds? Maybe sell a few more on MOCGB, Classic Mustang etc?

Wish I had those skills and can not claim as my work. Very lucky to know Scott who is working on my car. I am trying to help when I can but all the fabricating and welding is Scott's handywork.

Just looked on eBay and can not see them. Would have been amazing to get hold of them!! I joined MOCGB when I first got my coupe but have not spent much time since finding this site, will need to take a look again and share my project now I have some good progress to show.

Thanks but my skill was getting lucky in knowing the guy Scott with the fabrication skills. Have always had a goal and idea of how my car will be and so pleased with the progress so far. Still a long way to go....

Hi Duncan, thanks for the heads up, found them and looks like I may have just purchased them... Would be interested to know how many people would be interested in them? I know it would depend on the quality and price but will need to find out and need to get a set produced to see how they turn out.

Thanks DK, yes it is a great help! It has been my plan/idea (mad or otherwise to change to an IRS) and have always known what I want the car to be with the Jag parts and the appearance, especially for it to be an updated and more modern staight six. As with all plans they can and do change as the project evolves and with Scotts input and technical knowhow it is taking shape.

Hi, sorry not had much to post recently having had to wait for some parts to ship and trying to work out an alternative to the standard steering box. I know these are better than earlier cars but really would like to convert to rack and pinion and seem to have an answer. Waiting for a rack to arrive to confirm that it can be made to work, I will update with the results.

Scott has been working away and now have nearly all panels required to be rust free.

Hey Stewart. Got your email thx. These shots are cool. I don't know what your plans are having to do with the final stance of the car or even your choice in wheels and tires but I was wondering if your going to mount the inner wheel well tubs in the stock position or are you going to raise them an inch or two so you can hunker the car down in the rear and still have travel?

Hi Angelo, thanks. Great looking progress on your car too, it will look truly awesome and perfect styling and enhancement!

Will be mounting the inner well tubs in the stock position as the ride height and stance has been calculated with the positioning of the Jag IRS. I will need to order/choose the offset to fill the arches and have a few wheel styles/designs in mind but not yet decided on the final size/width until all back together and back on the ground.

A few shots to update with repairs and strengthening to the rear section before stitching back together in the New Year.
