Her 72 Mach 1
Thanks for the looping suggestion Hemikiller. That should work fine.

The reason I thought of removing the shocks/tower was because while at the bodyshop the engine bay will be stripped and painted. No other reason for removal, just thought with them out of the way it would be easier for paint.

If the bodyshop is doing the engine compartment, I'd be inclined to strip everything off the front of the car and deliver it to them on a dolly or something like that.

Yes, that would be the best way. But the logistics of delivering the Mach 1 sans front suspension are complicated. I looked into buying a nice car trailer last month, but couldn't justify the expense. I don't own a welder and have only a rudimentary knowledge of welding (I suck). We planned on just renting a Uhaul car trailer to bring the Mustang to the bodyshop.

I do have a coworker/friend that is an excellent welder/fabricator that could fab a dolly setup if we have time. We could probably build some type of dolly that utilizes suspension bolting points and buy some solid wheelbarrow tires from Lowes/HD. Might still be a pain in the arse using a come-along to winch the Mustang body up on the uhaul trailer. Some random thoughts on the fact that having the engine compartment painted with the suspension intact has been bothering me.
