Bodywork progress
#1
Several of you may know that I have had a very reputable shop working on my car since last November. Progress has been made, maybe not by the original timeline I anticipated, but nonetheless it is being made. Allan at Mustang Central sent me an email last week stateiing he would post some pictures on his website. I checked his website everday since then and on Sunday the pictures were added. I am glad the progress is now showing up in color. My hope is to have the car back late August, but it may be into September. Here is a link to the page on my car.

If you look around on his website you will see a medium lime 70 boss that he is also working on. I have a friend here in town who is the original owner of a 70 boss with 35K miles in this same color. It was a relatively rare colr for the boss. Everyone wanted the grabber colors or red.

Hope others enjoy the update. It just makes me that much more anxious to get it home and start reassembly for my 2014 deadline.

Thanks Chuck. This sure has been a long process just to get to this point. I feel good that we are making progress and some color is being applied over the drab black and gray primers I have seen for the last 2 years. I am starting the feel the pressure of time to get everything I need done by 2014. I have a project schedule laid out starting in October on what needs to be done by when. The engine is up in the air right now. I am debating about putting all of my 2 barrel parts on the exisitng block that I took out of the car versus spending the money (and time) right now rebuilding the bottom end of the 2 barrel motor.

BT,
You have a personal invitation to be the first one from the site to see it in person. Heck, some of the parts will look familiar.

I'll take you up on that. Memphis is only about 8 hours by car and I seem to remember a good rib place on Beale street. Chuck

Chuck,

The invitation is always open to head this way as well. If I make it to the Grand National I can bring up some Corky's, Rendezvous, or Interstate bbq.

I can usually fit getting there. It is getting out that is the hard part after a couple of racks and sandwiches.
