Great thanks Don!! Are the clips just removed with a flat tool like you use on the windshield trim?? I really don't want to damage these, the owner really wants to reuse them and keep it looking just like it is. I will be PMing you later today for some parts we are going to need to order.

Once any nuts are off
The clips are plastic - windshield tool is too thick
I use two thin flat blade screw drivers, one on each side of the clip. I start on from the bottom

Be very careful with the decor group trim. They do not repo it anymore, use to, and 71-72 is different for the front piece. 73 is lower to align better with the larger bumper. They are difficult to find I have two cars with it.
It is a nice looking car. I agree if you can fix the holes in the quarter panels do so the repo ones never fit like originals and almost impossible to hide the change. If you butt weld like you say it will never bee seen. So many just throw it up there and overlap the panel and then after a while it shows through the paint.


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

Sound advice. thumb

I remember the studs - I had to buzz them off my doors, since I was missing all the trim from the fenders on both sides. I wound up giving what was left of them to one of the guys on the forums rather than just toss 'em out. I was planning on going with hockey stripes... but then after seeing so many wavy stripes on other cars, I decided against it. Now, I kinda almost wish I had the trim back. whistling rofl

Oh well. Cool

Nice car, Kevin. Looks like a fun project. Nice shop, as well. thumb

Don, do you sell the clips and studs for these? I got the ones on the rear quarter panels off but the springs that hold them in the track are broke and a couple of the studs broke.

David, Im hoping to be able to save all the trim. The owner really wants to reuse it. As far as the butt welds go, that usually how I do all my patch panels. I like it to be invisible repairs.

Eric, Thanks, but as you know a shop is never big enough. This garage was already here when we bought the house. I have plans on putting a 24x56 addition on to it with 16' ceilings and a 2 post lift and possibly a small spray both in the back. That's why I do all my side work....to save up for my garage addition! It sure would make life a lot easier!!

Just thought I would post a couple pics of what I got done yesterday. Got the back of the car all tore apart. Dropped the gas tank. Cut out the tail light panel and trunk pan and drop offs. Still have some final cutting to do up front but ran outta time. The inside of the frame rails were virtually rust free. Another neat thing was that when I took off the trunk lid, there was no paint or primer under the hinges. the metal was bare and looked brand new. Crazy how 45 year old metal can not have a spot of rust on it. This car has never been in an accident or repainted. Its really cool seeing the overspray from the factory on different parts. They didn't do the greatest job of masking between the doors and rockers transition to black and yellow. Faint overspray on a lot of stuff. This car is like a time capsule. Cant wait til I get to move forward on the car and tear the interior out and look for the build sheet. I will keep this thread updated so you guys can see the progress.

Got some more of the car tore apart this weekend. All the trim off, fenders, hood, grille, bumper, ect. Found a little more rust than we had hoped. I will need to do a little bit of patching on the fender aprons. Also need to patch the cowl on passenger side. Luckily the hat is still in good shape and only the outer part of the cowl needs work. Gonna try to push it outside today or tomorrow and pressure wash it all off again now that the fenders are off and all the trim is off. Lots of old dirt under there. Should be fun pressure washing it. We got around 8 inches of snow last night and high in the Mid 20's. Suppose to warm up some tomorrow then drop down to 11 for a high Thursday and a low of -7. Yeah winters here! thumb
Heres a few pics. Hope to get the trunk pan finished up this week. So far I am 16 man hours into the job.

I was able to get the driveway plowed last night and get the mustang pulled out and gave it another bath. I pressure washed all the heavy stuff off of it. Lots of dirt and debris and around windows, cowl, under fenders ect. Then hand washed with dawn dish soap and hot water. Then pressure washed again. I was froze by the time I was done and soaked and a little icy!! But atleast I got it all done. Pulled it back in the garage to dry. Start installing the trunk pan tonight.
