  1. ITSASIX 1966 Mustang Turbo

    Very cool man!! I cant wait to get to thr poibt if engine. A base 302 in my 67 was pretty awesome, i ran the stock 302 behibd it and 3.20 gears and it was a nice mix. Im going to go a little more extreme with this but keep us in the loop.

    Finally got back to grind the welds down. Definitely have some fixing to do on the cowl covers but all and all its not bad. Need to go by a flap disc to smooth the metal out as well
  3. Going to be converting a 65 coupe to a fastback. Got it yesterday and started gutting it. Interior removed, qtr windows removed, gas tank removed, taillights and qtr extensions off. Not a lot of rust, underside looks pretty good. Front pans will need some work and the trunk has a few holes but nothing crazy. Really solid car

    So today i finally wire wheel above the rear axle. Then i used the metal brake i bought to make patches for the gas tank lip section out of the roof sheet metal. Got it tacked in and naturally ran out of welding gas.

    t want to get carried away and do too much work with the body kit before i ran my new stianless gas and break lines. Just that way when its harder to get under i didn't struggle Then i did some grinding to get the side scoops to fit better. Just some minor grinding on the lip

    100% according to the label. I had 2 spools of it and the first spool worked great
  10. 65 Coupe to Fastback "Phoenix"

    I didnt even think about that. I was running it off a cheap short cord so i have ordered a heavy duty one. May help even more
  11. 65 Coupe to Fastback "Phoenix"

    Pretty sure it was the whole spool.
  12. 65 Coupe to Fastback "Phoenix"

    Well you always learn lessons the hard way. I was very frustrated welding my cowl covers in. It was spattering really bad and i have no idea why. After i ran out of wire i went to tractor supply and bought some Hobart wire and all of a sudden my welds started working better with way less spatter...So now i know to stick to name brand store bought wire. . So i have a lot of grinding and cleaning to do on the cowl

  17. 65 Coupe to Fastback "Phoenix"

    could of swore i updated this thread but apparently not. Got the top of the cowl welded back up and cleaned up a bit. Also got frustrated with how disorganized and filthy the garage was so i organized and cleaned up to make room. MTF Eleanor kit should be on its way soon Im planning a matte/Satin blue paint job..Similar to this...Also ill be having a 67 style hood like in the picture

  22. 65 Coupe to Fastback "Phoenix"

    Been trying to decide on the rear suspension and after much consideration i decided to stick with leaf springs and upgraded shocks. So ive ordered 4.5 Mid eye leafs and blisstein shocks from SOT so my who suspension matches.. Just cant justify a 4 link for my build. Im also debating on what to do about wiring...I really want to go American Autowire but i probably can slavage the wiring in it...but id like upgraded fuses and well new wiring so i dont have to chase deamons
  23. 65 Coupe to Fastback "Phoenix"

    Got my wheel cribs in to make wire wheeling the underside easier. I have a pair for the rear but since i dont have brakes i decided against using them for now
