Mustang Build - Take Two!
#1
Hi everybody. I posted to the What did you do to your car today thread but in case anybody missed it, I got rear ended while stopped in line at a red light. My insurance company has sent me a check and the process of bringing my 'stang back to life has started. The body shop can't get me in for the frame machine until next month but the process of getting parts has begun!

I'll post more pictures of the current state and the progress soon.

Ouch! That sucks! Good to read that insurance is covering it, though.

Sorry to hear that. With all that he distracted driving going on I figure it's only a matter of time before my labour of love gets ruined by someone. Hope your car's repair makes you happy when it's done.

If this had been a rubber fuel line I doubt I would have been able to drive home.

I wish I could start replacing panels but I am at a point where I shouldn't do anything more until it gets straightened. I'm hoping to have it completed by July. Winter will bring things to a crawl as my garage isn't heated.

When you buy parts 71-72 are same for tail light, bumper and valance but 73 is different. Lots of people sell them on E-Bay saying 71-73 and yes it will fit but is not the same. So be careful there.
Hey don't you need another clap on that fuel line, lol.


When a man is in the woods and talks and no women are there is he still wrong??
