    lol.....ITs a 65 mustang....Other then the dash pad everything thing in front of me is metal other then the pad and cluster. And im unlikely to hit the center but it is something to consider but i cant mold plastics...yet

    so everything is finally where its going to be as far as the front. I welded the nuts on the brackets, welded the bracket to the bumper metal, welded my reinforcement plates (They are actually camber plates from the 65 i had to remove for the R&P),fabbed up a sheetmetal bracket to hold a filler plate, cut the rear filler plate in half and made it the filler plate for the front, and then bonded it together it a middle top plate that mimics the lines in the center. Its nothing perfect but it look decent. I am going to sand the front bumper, filler, new rear chrome bumper, and rear valance this weekend and spray them with bed liner. Then i can focus on painting the hood and trunk as well as starting to tear the top of the engine apart. But im over here with my metal fab Ideas....Matt knows ive discussed some ideas with him. I have this whole extra Dash for the 65 so im going to pull it out and see if i can fab up a console using C channel and sheet metal. Idea will be to cut around 9" out of the center of the Dash right below where the dash pad sits. Use the channel as rails for a sunken in/modern style dash console that will go down kinda like the 73s dash. The C hannel will also act a groove to hold the side panels in that im considering using abs for but only time will tell. Ive been looking at metal fab tools all morning. Need to order a Throatless Shear and a Bead roller...And some cleco fastners....

    I swear to god this car is going to drive me crazy! So first after working all day saturday trying to get this bumper lined up i finally do some measurements and figure out the bumper brackets are off! It almost looks like someone put the bracket in upside down because both sides angle the same way I got them adjusted a little but ended up having to bend the bracket out. I had to TORCH the **** out of the bolts and bracet to get things done. Finally i got it as good as its going to get. Its a bumper so its never gonna be a tight fit and im starting to build a plate to fill in the gap as well. Problem 2.....Rear bumper wont come off. The bolts just effing spin. So i remove the nuts from the filler plate on the rear and a pair of vice scrips allow me to break it free. ARG!!!!!! Anyway screw that thing, im going to mount a 71/72 as they fit more snug so screw the filler plate Problem 3, Rear valence isnt snug. Ok it WONT SNUG! Guess i need to remove it. Oh look some asshat as double nutted this MFER. A regular bolt with a nut on it to hold it still so he can put the inside trunk nut on. Part of the reason it wouldnt snug up. Naturally i had to SAWZAW this MFER off. I did scuff the rear a little in doin so but luckily i have plenty of bedliner... So yeah, FUCK THIS CAR!!!!! Luckily i have spare everything. So i need to get some bolts and paint the rear valanece. Naturally the 71/72 bumper i have is BENT! I cant get the brackets off it.... BLAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ok im done whinning

    Very nicely done man. You're busting it out. Making my production Levels look bad lol

    its taken most of the day but i refuse to put the 73 bumper back on. The 71/72 is cooler and much more agressive looking. Problem is they are completely different. 71/72 bumpers sit way higher and dont stick out as far. Due to regulations in 73.....So the even though bolt holes are there it just wont fit. Diff Fenders etc.. Well screw that. I have angle iron and im making a bracket. Will it be perfect? NO...WIll it look good? Yes I have to get a little more adjustment to do but its getting close. Have to wide the holes in the factory bracket to get it up about a 1/4". Also need to go back a little more. Once in place ill tack the bracket in place on the bumper and i have some reinforcement plates for the back of the bracket since the holes will be crazy

    Yeah, i was really surprised by how thin of a line it left too. That and how nice of a sheen it has. I looked in to having a finer grit and the key was high pressure and distance. So 55 PSI and shoot

    Another Saturday and a little more progress. I used Raptor liner to do the bottom of the car, tail panel, and front valance.
