Accident
Looking at the pics, are the outside edge of the front tires more worn the middle? Car looks like it coming along nicely.

Yes, that’s from me being lazy and not rotating them. I asked them to put the fronts on the back and the backs on the front. They are also getting kinda old, so I need new ones anyway.

Thanks for detailing the process, it’s great that you are ok and found a shop that specializes in these cars that is somewhat local!

Looking forward to seeing the final result...

Hey no problem. I hope nobody else has to go through getting into an accident. But if they do,  I hope this helps.

I was kinda surprised that there weren’t any Mustang specific shops that work on our years like this around here. I live in the Detroit metro area and the shop where my car is, is about 100 miles away in Saginaw. Not to far but, I sure am glad they aren’t any further.

I can’t wait see it all done too. Hopefully we have an early spring this year so I don’t have to wait too long till I can drive it!

Hey guys, here’s another update. They have made some great progress on everything. Doors and fenders are all back on. The blackout on the bottom is all done too. The hood is painted with the blackout and I’m very pleased with it. I still have to see it in person, but I think it all looks great!
The machine shop is all done with everything and it’s back at the shop where my car is. They started assembly on it today, so it should be all back together by the end of the week.
Here’s a few pics of the progress on the car.

Did they paint using base/clear or single stage?
