Default The fun begins...

God your project looks awful familiar....... Maybe the same color, (to start with)

Good luck with the project, takes time and money but well worth it.

That is sooo much cheaper than I could find someone in NY to do that kind of work on my car. And your avatar got me thinking about poor Dimebag...

I think I have gotten a long way in the first month of owner ship. I just wish we had some better weather so I could do some more painting and cleaning under side before winter hits fully. I need another good week of weather and I would have the underside fully done, then I can concentrate on the cutting out and welding of what is needed. I wanted to get what is good and solid protected first before it got any worse.

Take a deep breath... step back from the car

and NEVER EVER go in yourr garage again!!!!!


i feel our 68 was in much better shape when i started my project... and would never ever do it again!!! the $$$ and time youy are going to spend in this you are never going to get back!!


if I had to do it again i would go and buy a decent restored mustang for 8-12K
and do the little fixes and save myself the 20K i put in the car and the weekends spent working on it will never be recouped.

I really don't care about either....

I have been wanting to do this to a car since I had my first car, a '70 coupe and a '70 Mach 1, at age 14 and I never had the chance to do them because I didn't have the $$$ to do it, I'm now 42 and things are different.

I don't care about the time or money that will be spent on it and I'm fully aware that I will never get the $$$ back out it, I have been into cars too long to know better.

A project like this is all about the adventure to the final out come and it will be nothing less.

Thanks for your opinion and concern, but I'm personally I'm having a ball doing this and this car is much better shape then A LOT of the cars I have seen on this board.

Thanks, at first I thought my mother was on the board, but she never even did that. LOL!!!

I know all to well what we're in for and I'm prepared for that. With a car like this unless you a got a rare car and the $$$ put into it meets it's potential worth, you'll never get it back.

The time I got into it is time that I used to watch TV after the kids go to bed, so I'm not really loosing anything there either.

I figure I got around 55-65 hrs+ into it at this point to what you see I have done so far, so I know all too well on how much time will go into this thing.

For the next car we will do just exactly that, I want a '69-'73 fastback in the worst way.
For now, I want the experience and knowledge that this car will give me/us and we can appreciate these cars soooo much more because of it.

For me, it's all about standing back, looking at the finished product and saying to myself "Yeah, I did that". Who gives a **** how much time and money go into it. There is nothing like diving into something that you have no or very little experience with and it turning out just like you imagined it would or should. Besides, it gives a person some time to just relax and forget about the daily problems that everyone experiences.

When I used to build high dollar custom snowmobiles the best part was always just staying in the shadows and listening to what other people thought of my work. I got one of those featured on the cover of a magazine with a nice write up inside and now that's the goal with my car.

Not much of an update to the car itself as it has been too cold to work on it in the garage.

I did get my trunk panel brace, Ford tooling tail light panel, and Scott Drake export brace in December so i will have those ready when I get to work on her again.

I did get all the boxes of parts I got with the car sorted out and a bunch more parts cleaned and painted up.

I'm working on getting my welder ready to go now, my helmet will be here on Monday and I just got my .30 solid wire for it today. I got all the electrical supplies today so I can run a dedicated electric line to run it and I hope to do that this weekend.

Not an exciting update, but an update nun the less.

Lynn
