Thanks for the comments. Went to a cruise tonight with the model A. Great weather in the mountains . I will be posting more pics over the weekend. Progress will be moderate to slow as I'm a one man builder A to Z. I estimate this one at 1500 hours and I can give it about 15 a week right now. Have other pics you may find interesting. I plan to fab the rear deck next week . I think you'll have a good idea of where I'm going with it at that time. After that ill be but welding about 300 ft of sheet metal so not much will change for a while. Stay with me I appreciate the support, makes all the work easier.

   

Could someone let me know why my pics are flipped, thanks. I fitted the bumper today had to fab brackets.

Also looking for your thoughts . I'm thinking the new charger 4 headlight. You know the ones with the flat tops. A honey cone grill with a nice mustang horse in the middle. Just can't do the one single big headlight like stock. Pitch in , comments will be appreciated about this idea or other possibilities like maybe a 69 stang 4 headlight set up set up .thanks

Lots of great bodywork so far.
Keep those pics coming!!!! Smile

Yes, I took 81/2 inches of the front fenders and hood , its all waisted space. I still have room with the core support in its original location to fit grill & headlight hardware . Thanks

I really like the direction you are heading with the rear window area of the car. I always liked the fastback profile, but thought it would look better with a coupe-like rear window section! I always wanted to give it a try, just don't have the means to do so, I am very interested to see how she turns out!

Ok, I flipped them for you and put them back into your posts.
My guess is that you took the pics with your phone, right?
If you hold your phone upside down when taking them (and there is no way to know what side of a phone goes up or down anyway) the phone will remember what way the pic was taken and show it accordingly. That means that on the phone your pics always show the right way around but the info on the pic is still "upside down", so when you load them onto your computer they will be rotated the wrong way. (This explanations sounds amateurish but that's all I know about computers and phones anyway Smile )

What you can do is post the pic and if it shows upside down, rotate it with some program like Paint, Photoshop, Gimp or whatever and save it gain. Then edit your post (bottom right) use "full edit", remove the pic from the post and add the "new" rotated one.
That's what I do with yours, I use Paint as it's fast and easy.

Sorry, I screwed up with one of your posts.
When I tried to rotate the pics, one got lost in the process. It's pretty hard to figure out which is which when you delete them before you replace them, so I deleted the one with relocating the crash bar.
Sorry,
I ain't gonna mess with your posts again for that reason. If there is only one pic in the post, it's easy but as soon as there are multiple pics it's very easy to mess up.
Sorry again.
