1973 "Pro-Touring" project - Creator


Recommended Posts

While the primer dried in the enginebay I spend the rest of the day blasting and sanding the doors to bare metal, I like to start from scratch. Look how beautiful those original doors are, so nice a condition they are in, I really like that :D

Nice, looks like you have some good doors.

At least we know now who does most of the hard and dirty work :)

They are really a pair of good doors, it makes me happy to see metal that old in such a nice condition! :D 

 

 

Hahaha, yeah you are right, why not make it easy for my self  lollerz  No I just wanted to learn him how things works and how to make things, it’s nice that he like to help with it and I at the same time can give somthing from me to him :D He actually helped with spraying some of the primer in the enginebay too :)

Share the interest with your children. They will treasure it long after you are worm food

A little progress again today :D Got the holes for the locks in the doors welded up today because I want keyless entress. Also got the doors in that ugly primer too. I wont do anymore to the doors for now, the next will be to make every gap between the door, fenders and body to line up perfectly with a 0,5mm gap every where. So next project are the front fenders and strip them down to bare metal.. Yeeeah buddy! :D

0.5 mm? You probably mean 5 mm!

 

Haha lol!! Yes of course I did mean 5mm instead, my mistake :D It would newer be possible to open af door if it was 0,5mm :D

Began on the front fenders today. Every hole for emblem, trim for wheel opening and marker lamp are closed to get the clean look I want.. I also got the doorhinges blasted and restored with new pins and bushings :D

A little progress today also, not much, but better than nothing :D Spend some time on the hinges and grinded/sanded all the edges to make them smooth and take away all the fails from when they were produced, looks much better now and got primer on them too :D

Nice work you are doing and will be good to see how the "clean" look comes out

I got luck with my doors and fenders as well although perhaps not as spot on as yours

 

Thank you really much, I appreciate to hear that :) I hope it will turn out really nice! 

Glad to hear that you had luck with your fenders and doors too, the doors are a bit expensive if you had to buy them new :D

[the doors are a bit expensive if you had to buy them new]

a bit... ahahaha. Shipping for a hood (300 something) to my door was 1800 via jeggs, add 21% on the 2100 for import tax. The doors are bit smaller but as a pair they also weight more.

Short story: I'll be welding and fighting rust once more as my 71 are crunchy on the front side and underneath. Not sure how bad yet.

 

For sandblasting, I'm looking around for a portable low pressure and small solution, I see you have a cabinet, what kind of media do you use and what is the air pressure required for this cabinet? What would be the max size of a part you could handle in there?

haha yeah, if you had to get them shipped to Europe too it will be a hole lot more expensive! Damn that ended up being a really expensive hood, that’s the sad part of it when ordering parts for our Mustangs, we cant just pay the price for the parts and say that’s it, then comes shipping, taxes and so, I HATE IT!! :D 

 

As for media, I’m just using sand to keep the costs down and it works perfectly! I cant remember how much pressure we use in the cabinet, but I think it’s everything from 3-8 BAR, but dont hang me up on that! I actually think for some years ago that I had a 17” wheel in it. We do actually also have a extern sandblasting unit we use for bigger parts, like the enginebay and doors which I just had blastet with that, you can see it in the picture, it’s the red unit in the background, it’s a great solution for what we need it for :) For that one, it works best with 5-8 BAR of pressure.

Sprayed some epoxy primer in the enginebay today, what a difference that everything are in one color, looks so much better! :D I think next step is to get some epoxy layed down inside the car to brighten everything up a little!

Don't see any second pict, but the one I see looks gorgeous!

All shaved and straight gives already a much cleaner look.

Well done!

Love the clean look on the engine bay and will look even better with some colour on it

 

Thanks a lot! Me too! Cant wait to get colour on some day. I would really like to remove the wiper motor too, but I cant really figure out what system to use instead, it would have been nice with a system inside the car. My plan for paint are to go with the colour on the wheels and finish of with a matte clear, that would look amazing I think. I will build custom panels to cover up things too and a home made export brace, this is gonna be awesome some day. But for next step the plan are to get the epoxy primer sprayed inside the car too, cant wait for that :D

A little step forward today, it does’nt look like much for some, but for me it’s a huge progress :D Got the other fender cleaned today. All holes for trim, emblem, sidemarker and antenna are welded up and finished to get the clean look that I want, I also had some rust that I needed to fix. It has been a good day for me, I like it! :D

Continued today with some good progress! I began on the rear wheelhouses, they needed some rust repair and the outer wheelhouse needed to be welded together with the fender lip after cutting a little of them to secure that they wont rub of the rear tires. The reason for that they are’nt finished yet are because that I could’nt decide if I wanted to make the rear fender flares wider, but I have decided not to do that, so the plan are to get them finished now with welding then sand everything to bare metal, then prime them with a rust preventing primer, then epoxy and then the black material as I used in the front :D Hope to continue tomorrow and finish up the welding and maybe put some primer on :D 

 

If you cant see what’s in the pictures. The 3 first pictures are the left wheelhouse with the weldings and metal shaping done, the other 2 pictures are the right one where I have tack welded a piece that I will complete tomorrow and the other picture shows a metal plate that needs to be replaced. The last picture are just a picture of the entire wheelhouse to see how it looks like before it’s finished :D

 

^^^^ Okay, the pictures did’nt upload in the direction as I thought they would, I hope you can see what is what :D

Completed the other side. Nothing special and I could probably have made it better, but it’s done now and it’s welded nice together and will hold up. Everything will get sealed anyway. Now of to the cleaning process and then primer! :D
