    I thought I would take a picture outside before we tape the body and spray SPI bedliner on the floor and inside the trunk.

    Rusty,

    I can't wait to see this coupe.

    Love the shaved cowl....my 67 is hopefully getting some paint this weekend as well, it has some of the features of your 68 there, except for that bad-ass suspension you got, and those other subtle tricks you did to the car. The shaved drip rails are slick too. I caught hell for shaving my cowl, but screw-em

    Still not sure on what engine I will be using. We still have a lot of work before I start installing an engine.

    I say paint the roof red to match the hood and deck lid, leave the flat black and go with it...the black and red looks awesome!

    Brian said if I painted the roof red it would match the new Boss 302. I know one thing it attracts a lot of attention at shows.

    Saturday we went to the Mustang Club of Tampa's 30th annual car show. When we left the shop at 6:30 it was raining and finally stopped around 10:30. At first it looked like we would have a bad turn out but I was surprised when the weather cleared the cars kept rolling in.

    I plan on using the stock grille and chrome trim so I modified the stone guard than bonded it to the Maier front end.
