  5. Steve Baur the editor of Modified Mustangs & Fords Magazine asked if I would give 20 tips on how to do a paint job and wanted me to paint the Coupe for a future bodywork issue.

    I have the doors and fenders painted

  15. wow that car looks smooth ! same wheels i have. imo the best looking wheels for 65-68
     
  16. Man I just read the whole thread, love the car!! Any update, would love to see it finished!
     
  17. what company makes those wheels? i could see a set of those on my 69. especialy if i go black. were the spinners seperate or come with the wheels?
    they look expensive. Jim
     
  18. According to Rusty, the wheels are Edelbrock 454. I've hunted and found them to be no longer made but someone (Iforgot who) makes a clone of them. I agree that they are awesome!
    HTH,
    Gene
