Glad it's done and now I can move on to building that back deck for my wife!! Here's the finished pics with the new tires. As close to original looking as we could get.

Just spent 3 hours going through this thread, Excellent work by you, in every way. Preserving a piece of Mustang history for the owner and everyone else to see. What this has done is made me really think about how much i should 'fix' rather than 'replace'. With all of the less than great re-pop stuff, whatever is original and really usable with some work really needs to be kept.
Just joined the group since I came across a 71 coupe which i got on the cheap. I call it a parts car, since Marti says it was a Grabber Lime, 6 cyl hardtop. Its still a hardtop with 4 wheels, but that's about it.
I really get into the detail shots to see what the 'correct' layout is. My car will never be restored back to stock, gong the restomod route. However with some half a__ed work, and not being familiar with the car, I need so see how these really go together.
Thanks for the read, and many, many tips.
