351 4v( New paint )
Nice progress Mike. Thanks for posting the update pics.

I really like the clean, original look of your car. More like the cars looked that I saw back when they were new.

Looks like you got a little behind on the updates.

Looking real nice. Glad to see the car back in the garage and getting the attention it needs. What type of time table do you have for getting her back on the road?
I want to say 2 years Jeff. rofl
Here some pics of the parts cars that are being used. Parts car #1 72 sprint sports roof. Sorry no pics. #2 72 Grandé. this car had no rust,kinda feel bad for throwing it away.Confused #3 72 Mach 1, parts car now may become project later. #4 73 Coupe, This car was sold to member MBeauchamp for his Coupe to convertible project.The 2nd pic is when it was being shipped to Canada. #5 72 pink Coupe,a car I picked up from member GibsonJunk. This car helped a few members with there projects.

After the rust in the cowl and engine bay was done. Time for the rear quarters. Starting with the right side.

I thought the rust spot between the right rear tire and door was going to be the hardest spot to repair. Nope it went real easy.

Now that the right side patches are done,time to move on to the left quarter.

Just as I'm getting started on the left side I was thinking how am I going to clean up the underside. So I started looking to rent a rotisserie. No one rents them and I was not going to spend 1.700 on something that I would use for a month or 2. Well about the time I was looking around for a rotisserie there was a post here about building one. One of our members posted that he made one out of 8 sheets of plywood. At first I shook my head nope but the more I thought about it the more I thought why not!
