    Thanks Ed, you are kind. I finished drilling yesterday, and the fit is nice tight. Thanks anyway! Yeah, there are many Slovak and of course Czech immigrants in US (not that much as Polish :), mostly on East Coast – NY, PA (Pittsburg). You Grandfathers family came probably in first immigration wave from SK to US. I have to admit, that I was thinking to stay in US too in 2007. I spent 2 years in NY City, but after my visa expired, I decided to come back, because a legal way to stay was too complicated.
  2. Great idea, adding to my "mod-list" :) Thanks

    Thanks for your tips! I bought the bit – closest is 13,5 mm, but won’t use it. I’ll go with 13mm step drill bit and file it as needed. But I have to try the fabric trick today J, I’m curious
  4. Are those brackets on body bolted only? Looks nice...

    Thanks Ed, Mike 65, I found Czech company that sells vintage Mustang part in Prague and requested floor pan, so I’m looking forward to get answer. My progress is gonna slow down little bit, I need to finish my air system – need to build air dryer to be able spray at home. I´m finally done with engine bay welding and could try out my body filler on battery holder area. Marking for Shelby drop is done, but I didn’t find the right drill bit size at home so I have to buy one. Started to fabricate subframe connectors...

    Man, I could stare at your pics for hours :) Lovely details all around the car. Won’t you hit the brake line on the bottom of the crossmember? As I remember, mine was scratched pretty hard :)

    Ups, you scared me, one side was already done. I did as many measurement I could, but it seems to be nice parallel and equal on both sides. Thanks for your tip!

    After blasting I sprayed epoxy primer to seal the surface. In shock tower I spotted some weird sharp edge around one of spot welds. When car came back home I stripped this area and did penetration test to confirm my concerns. In total I found 1 crack on left and 2 cracks on right shock tower. So next step … shock tower reinforcement.

    Yes, you right aslanefe. Driver side has been changed in full length. The passenger side only the rear half. The replacement job was done very badly, so I have to correct driver side. Problem is, that after sandblasting the original passengers pan came out unusable... Whole car (except straight flat surfaces) was blasted in booth with steel grit. Rest was done with small dustless sander.

    Thanks Guys, Some pics of torque boxes replacement. Boxes came with car (previous owner ordered them from NPD), frame rails I drew in CAD, and let them laser cut + bend. After epoxy welded in place...

    Thank you Aslanefe. Yes they still are around J. And as you wrote, seals and probably engine / transmission parts will be only that I import from US. Some pics of paint (bondo) stripping. At some spots this car was “sculptured” from putty.

    I'm so sorry man, that's so bad. Is the cause of fire known ?
