  1. I think that I've become emotionally involved with this project. You're delving way deeper than I would have attempted, outstanding job.:jaw:
     
  2. wow this thing could sit in the ocean and not rust when it's done
     
  3. This thread motivated me to sign up for Stangnet! What primer products do you guys use? My 65 coupe will be getting the same tear down as Chris' fastback but not as many repair pieces. Keep the updates coming!!
     
  4. All I use in my shop are SPI primers and clear.

  7. Rembrandt & Picasso,
    Truly artistic stuff!:D While this is truly amazing ( I can't even fathom the man hours/$$$$$ for this resurrection, even at Rusty's more than reasonable rate) I've not seen any updates on the GORGEOUS 67 GT 500. WE NEED CAR ****!:)
    Thanx Rusty,
    Gene
     
  8. Glad to see you doing this project right. Reminds me of my fastback rebuild in the mid '90's..................................we took it Road Racing.
