Took The Front End Appart
#1
Took off the front end and took a good look at the rear end. The rear end is in good shape just surface rust and here is what the front end looks like. I dont know I think I may just keep going. Screw it ill do it one piece at a time I have the rest of my life at least I will know what I have when I am done. I know what everyone is saying I just dont have the heart to deny this car life.

I've got to tell you, I've seen a WHOLE lot worse on this forum. Save your pennies ($20's, actually Smile ) and you can get a whole lot done yourself. How are your welding skills? If you don't have much experience, you may want to invest in the $210 MIG welder posted in another thread and do a little practicing. Welcome to the world of Mustang restoration!!

STOP!

Take some measurements before you go any farther. Take plenty of pictures for reference. Keep records. Bag your assortment of bolts individually.

As you mentioned, take one step at a time and keep heart. It is fixable and it is worth fixing. Looking forward to following the progress.
