New project for this winter. 71 Mach 1
#41
Got some more done on the mustang today. Got the passenger side lower quarter panel cut out and fitted. Got the trunk drop off finished and patched part of the outer wheel house. Everything is welded up. Still need to grind everything flush. I will be grinding tomorrow and try to get the tail light panel welded in. I post more updates this weekend. Happy new year!!

Got some more done on the car today. Finished up the tail light panel, inner fender well, bumper supports, and trunk latch bracket. Also got all the grinding done on the welds today. Hoping to be moving forward on the car. The rear is just about done. Gonna have to start the body work soon! ? Not looking forward to that. But here's a few more pics. I will update this later this week.

Did you buy the wheelhouse patch or make it? If you bought it, what do they call it? I need one for my car also.

I bought the whole outer wheel housing panel from Don at Ohio mustang. I just cut out the pieces I needed.

Small update. Didn't get much done but did get a little. Patched a hole by the quarter window. Got most of the areas on rear of car sanded down to bare metal and ready for some filler. Gonna try to get whole car sanded down this week and get a couple dents in the passenger rocker fixed up. Looks like some one jacked up the car on the rocker at some point and messed it up pretty good. Not sure if I will be able to get it to pull out or not. Also got the long dent/crease in the passenger side door pulled out. Should just need a skim of filler to level it out. Also got the trunk seal channel cleaned up. Here's a few pics, enjoy.

Nice work Kevin. The rocker panel dents look just like the ones on my Mach. When I went to look at it before I bought it , the previous owner had the rocker resting on a jack stand. Keep up the good work. Ryan.
