Thanks everyone! I appreciate all your kind and encouraging words.

Speaking of rust, the battle continues. The last couple nights have been dark and cold here so it has been hard to stay at the shop for a long time. The cradle for the Rod & Custom will be here at the end of the week so we put the front end on hold until then. We moved to the dreaded drip rail replacement. I forgot my camera so I had to use my phone again.

Here are a couple pics:

Aaron got a little excited when I was removing the drip rails. I turned around and saw this! He's funny isn't he...

Wait, wait!!! Where do I get in line?

Everytime my wife comes out in the garage she gets a look on her face like something stinks, and she holds her hands up so her manacure doesn't get scratched. Then she turns around and says, "Your dinners ready!". ...On her way out.

Hey No Reins, if your sister looks anything like your James Bond girl avatar? Send her over! And tell her to bring her spot welding drill!

You guys are too funny. Yes, we are blessed to have the building and the tools thanks to my generous father in law, and of course my talented husband who is making it happen. BUT... w/o me there would be no mustang project because he is a GM guy -eek!

Drip Rails...
Mustangs Unlimited, they are dynacorn.

Sweet! I'm about an hour and a half away from them, thanks for the info! I'm considering removing mine all together though, time (and my budget) will tell for sure, haha.

So I wasn't going to post an update of what we did tonight but then I looked at the pictures and got so excited! We have been working very hard to finish up the metal work to put her back on the rotisserie so we can move it into another garage that will be warmer for the winter. It's already like 30 degrees here and pretty soon it won't be possible to keep working in this building. Ohh Ohio..

This is a custom jack pad from Mustangs to Fear.. COOOOL! We just wanted to mock it up, out of excitement of course:

Since we're going with the Rod and Custom suspension in the front, they require the shock towers removed. These custom inner aprons from Mustangs to Fear are what we are going with instead of the small patch panels that R&C supply with the kit. Again, just mocking it up; cradle needs to be welded in before these get welded:

That new jack pad and the shock tower/inner fender apron panel replacements look great!
This really is going to be one of the best Eleanors around, both looks and especially performance!

I noticed no one said anything about these. Deluxe Shelby seatbacks right? That's pretty awesome and those look to be like new. Are they reproducing these now?

I have not seen anything like those custom side panels, it sure cleans up the look of the engine bay. Keep up the good work.

Yes the repro the seat backs, but definitely not the stainless trim. These however are original Ford. We puchased these on ebay for about half the cost they go for listed properly. That is what we've done all along, collecting parts when we find a good deal. I guess I haven't been putting the parts on so here are some more things we have found over the past year:
