I'm moving along on my car finally! It's been about 2-1/2 years since I touched it. Here are some of the latest pics of where I am at the moment, the engine bay is finally ready for primer which has been a very long tedious process of measuring, cutting, welding, and grinding...lots of grinding! If you'd like to check out earlier pics of this project visit my website here and click on the Obsidian71 tab.

I hope to update as often as possible...
Sometimes I get a little lazy with uploading pics. Tonight I plan to finish phosphate etching (started last night) the engine bay and prime it tomorrow, we'll see how it goes...

Great work on the aprons. Looks like a factory job minus the horrible Ford spot welds.

Yeah...those welds will all be smoothed out later! Some of the factory '71 welds are better looking then the late model ones. I already cleaned up all the slag around them from when they were done at the factory, and I'll fill the rest before final primer.
