  1. 65 Coupe to Fastback "Phoenix"

    Finally got back to work. So i was all ready to go and remove the intake and it was a giant pain in the butt!!! The distributor is stuck in place, everything is in the way. I had to use a pry bar to break the manifold free. But ive got it off and cleaned. Next comes installing it but i need to wait on a couple parts. Weiand 7515 Intake came with the car so i did test fit it and leave it in place to prevent dustOn the bright side..Engine looks clean

    thinking about getting some Matte Black plasti dip and doing the standard mach design black out of the hood. Minus the pin stripe as thats too much taping. Kinda a ghost look on the satin. Thoughts?

    went much much better this time around. Spent the morning sanding everything then i hit it with 3 coats. Amazing what setting your gun to the proper operating PSI will do. I also remember to actually mix the paint before mixing it with hardener and such. So the sheen is way different. I still have to paint the scoop inserts but they need some work as well as the inner areas of the trunk and fenders.

    yeah i do need to move my lighting but that wasnt the issue in this case. No big deal, when i painted my 67 with this stuff i had to do it twice because of runs on my sail panels and general first time mistakes that come with painting in 20x9 carport lol. Ill hit it with the 400 block when its dry...I just had already went over it pretty good with 320 so i think i just got to a point where it was not fully cured. Its enamel so it doesnt always dry the fasted even with hardner

    yeah i actually took the orbital to it today and it would of taken forever to wet sand it by hand. I got it fairly flat but needs more work however after sanding its still got issues. Started gunking up the paper so ill let it dry more then sand it down and spray again. I also realized i forgot to mix the gallon jug. So my flattening agent probably is settled n the bottom too. So i dont even know what i was thinking yesterday. Just skipped all the basic steps

    well got ahead of myself spraying Blitz Black on the hood, trunk, and wing. I dont know what i was thinking but i put the pressure too low and in general had the spray pattern messed up. Bad coverage and i have runs all over the hood and rear spoiler. So im going to start sanding tomorrow

    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....
