|A little back round, I acquired the car as a rolling shell that was being stripped for parts so I saved it from the crusher. That was back in 2001, after moving to upstate NY, a few year business venture & 2 more moves I was back at working on the Mustang in 2010. In 2011 we moved back to NJ but this time to southern NJ where the work on the mustang has been almost non stop. Since the mustang has spent its whole life (as far as I can tell) in NJ it suffered from a lot of rusted out sheet metal due to the dreaded road salt. I taught myself how to weld replacing the many panels that needed replacing on the Mustang. I have replaced the l/s trunk floor, rear gas tank support panel, tail light panel, rear valance, l/s & r/s outer wheel house's, l/s & r/s quarter panel skins, l/s door shell, r/s door skin, l/s full floor, r/s lower firewall (toe board), l/s & r/s front inner fender panels. So if anyone is interested & has nothing to do for a few hours here is the link to the full build thread.
