At this point the only way I'm gonna like you is after you make one of my cars look like that! You do amazing work.

I have a hard time dealing with the reflection. Can't tell wall from reflection. Excellent work.
And my stang will likely never be shiny, been there, done that. I drive my crap, I don't want to worry about some snot nosed brat rubbing their snotty fingers on my fender while 'mom' and 'dad' pay more attention to their phones than the kid that runs his toy car up and down the side of my car.
Sorry, too much coffee today.

The one thing this car needs is Cobra side skirts to complete the look. But the car has all oem
cobra pieces so aftermarket wouldnt do and oem is impossible to find. Or is it.

To use the 93 cobra fender extensions, I’ll be changing the 88 fenders out for 91-93 fenders. While Im at that. Im going to take the perfectly good bumper thats on the car and move it into inventory. Taking this thread full circle,Im using the bumper off my burned GT which was under the house when the car and house burned. Then stored for 11 Yrs. Time to use it on the replacement car. Already cut the bumper and fitted the OEM cobra grill I aquired with the side skirts

The good thing about working new panels off the car is the car remains available for trips to work and the grocery store.

Its all about the prep work. Each piece is a project in itself. Lots of blocking..even the cobra side skirt kit. Lots of primer

Let the bumper rework begin. I last sanded this bumper in 1996. Lol! Got some front plate holes to fill and alot of places to smooth out.
