Slowest resto ever - Project AmsterFoose
#11
I'm 8 years in to my restoration and not even close to being done. Wanted to be done by time I turned 50. I turned 50 a month ago.  Undecided

Good luck with your restoration.

I been at mine 3 years this March. The engine and engine bay done plus trunk and underside so far. Hope to get heater-A/C done this year along with the dash and the interior shell stripped and painted plus interior green trim sprayed.

Thanks again guys. It's funny coz everybody over here asks me how long it will take and I say "10 years prolly" and then they laugh and think I'm joking but really I'm not.

Today I heard my flat hood is ready. I wasn't 100% satisfied with the vinegar-in-hood method so I had it dipped (same treatment I'm planning for the whole body, this will be a good test). I'll be picking it up in 3.5 weeks though, need to arrange transport. We don't drive the big trucks around over here like most of you do in the states. Anyway, word has it the hood looks pretty good with only one hole in the bottom pass. side front corner. That's where water collects in them, they should've made a drip hole there perhaps...

Yeah, and then they also laugh because they think you'll never get it done. Stick to your guns and go through with it!
I'm doing this a second time around because the first time there were very little resources, knowledge, my money that everybody wanted for services LOL.
Parts situation has vastly improved and this time I have a body man who knows what he's doing. So this time she's going to get what she deserves, not leaving anything behind! Be aware of most Scott Drake reproductions, rather go with Carpenter or original!

Two weeks gone by and spent 15 minutes on the Mustang’s fuel tank with a wire brush wheel to see how bad the outside rust is. It’s not bad at all so that’s good.

10 days ago, myself and 2 others became the board of our units association, kinda like home owners but for our garage units. It’s been using up all my garage time so far. Was at my garage 2 days and only managed to create a small removable workbench at the front of my shop and do emergency repair of my vacume cleaner and grind the tank a little bit:

Don’t know how much I’ll get done the next two weeks but I AM going to pick up my triple dipped hood then! Can’t wait to see how that has turned out :-)

This workbench blocking the exit is a clear statement, even if removable: No mustang gets out before it's done!
Way to go Vinnie! 10 years and counting Smile

73 modified Grandé 351C. Almost done.

Time to get busy, fellas.  It 'only' took me 4 years of weekends to get mine 'almost' done.

Then again... I guess I'm not really 'done' yet, either.   rofl

If the project does snowball, are you going to change the name to "Foose-ball"?
