1973 Sportsroof
#1
2.5 year job 2000hrs 23 new panels,  lots of goodies, built 100% by me! Few little things to finish but 98% there. Added a few progress pics. Have over 600 photos lol  For those of you out there doing the same kind of work to your car , my advice is keep at it one step at a time, and dont be scared to learn new things, If i didn't make mistakes I wouldn't of learned so much. I have absolutely no mechanical or body work training , all self taught. Thanks to this forum for all the advice and countless visits to find info.  On to the next car, in line is my 1970 plum crazy charger and a 1969 charger .. the next builds will be even sweeter now that I have a practice run in . Sadly I'll prob sell this mustang I've had for 17 years to fund the chargers, but hey thats  life!!

That's a great looking car you put together. Thanks for saving it! You can see you put a LOT of time, energy, hear and blood into it. Smile

Great job you have done and would be a shame to have to sell it
Mine also took 2.5 years, at least 2000 hours, is about 98% finished with nearly 100% work done by myself but only 9 new panels just to be different
