    staffy got a reaction from Grabber70Mach in 69 Restomod (UK)   
    Quick update, the car is still in the body/paint shop, progress a little slow,  but some decent  progress finally being made now.
    Panels all lined up and the doors had a lot of work on them to retain the original skins.

    I was being optimistic to be fair, but I have aligned most of the panels and striped a few down to bare metal.
    Major jobs are the Door skin to change,  hood front to sort (minor dents) and the repro fender to sort out.
    my guy is pretty fast and he has capacity now, so that’s why it’s gone a little earlier then I expected it 
    he re-painted my Mach 1 about 12 months ago so I know his work.
    Just need to  decide on paint colour, I’m really torn on colour, Wish me luck

    Actual mustang II? At least the crossmember looks to be a factory piece. Hubs are 5 lug though.

    Fitment was great.  I had to pass the drivers side up from under the car because of the brake booster being in the way and you have to tighten spark plugs 7&8 with a wrench attached to the spark plug socket but other than that it was easy.

    I do like that gray with black, however probably Red would appeal to more buyers.

    You guys in the US are so lucky to have space and relatively cheap real estate, unless of course you live in cities like San Fran, Seattle etc. Real estate and space over here in the U.K. is expensive and hard to come back. 
    not long finished my new garage, 6metresx4metres which I think is small by US standards, but I managed to get in  a 2 post hoist and lots of Dexion storage racking,
    id love a lathe  to teach myself but alas unlikely as not enough space :-(

    I have one. Get the bigger batteries and they will last quite a while . I use mine for tear down ,it will zip fenders quick and easy . It will handle most smaller bolts ,i have used mine to remove bumpers but any bigger bolt it probably will not touch
