StangNet's Project 67

This is our progress build resource for our Fastback project.

  1. Edelbrock E-Street EFI System

  2. She is a rolling chassis again!

    After the cutting in the paint of the Guardsman Blue, our Fastback project has gotten her 'roll back. We reinstalled the RRS Suspension and now we can start building out the engine bay. Our plan is to paint the rest of the Mustang once we get the engine bay is complete. This will help prevent any dings or dents in the fenders, etc... and once we install all the body pieces and paint, we would rather not be taking it back apart.

    Also of note, StangNet has now moved into its new shop. We...

  3. Paint! Cut in the jams, engine bay and underbody

    Today we were finally able to get some Guardsman Blue on the 67. Pictures do NOT do this color justice.

    We cut in the door jams, engine bay and underbody.

    For the underbody we did a bedliner coating from Gravitex (UPol) and the sprayed on the blue then clear. The suspension, lines and driveline should pop! ;)

    Next we will be putting the suspension back on and starting on the engine bay. Stay tuned.

  5. Body In First Primer

    Slow and steady! First coat of primer is on. Only 2 more blocking's to go. :) We will then start on the bottom the car, seam sealer, coating and body color. Then we will put the suspension back on and make a roller again.

    The car will be painted twice. First round is just to get color on everything and lock it down. We will then build the car out, dings and scratches can fall where they may, and then we will assemble the entire body, sand and paint again to get the metallics the way we...
