    Smoothed the firewall on the 'Stang. If I decide I need heat/AC I'll go with a Vintage Air Mini unit. Not quite finished, but you get the idea.

    Seems like it needs a few ribs in it, like that panel behind the shock tower. Would make it look more like it was meant to be that way.

    hey man!

    I used aircraft stripper and a wire wheel. I have a sandblaster now, though.

    Ya, the car should be pretty cool when it's done. I got all the stuff, all the ideas, now all I need is time. Someday we'll have to get together and talk mustangs (and Capris).
