Come mid December I'm gonna go full tilt on the body of the 71 and make some real progress after months of just starring at the car. Anyhow I at least hammered out the front appearance Hope you like it. I wasn't going to show it till the car was done but I figured I'd put my spin out there and see if anyone has any feedback.

IMG_9040.thumb.PNG.ec979b8b9b6cbfb046ca420be869532c.PNGThanks guys. I wanted to keep it recognizably mustang so I took my inspiration from the 70 Boss 302 and flipped it. I like the way the 70 stripe comes down the fender but I figured since the 71 has all that nose realestate I flipped the hood stripe to start at the windshield and move forward and down in front of the tire instead of behind the front tire. I figured that was Ford's idea with the 71 Mach 1 stripe. They were doing the same thing as the 69 Boss 302 reverse "C" stripe only they took it to the nose on the 71 making it longer like the car.

Wide-body71.....I think you are going to be my new best friend. And you are only a few Provinces East from me.

 

You are doing an amazing job on your Mustang. Can not wait to see it done.

Nice. Alberta is still awesome even if the economy has crashed.

I know this isn't the forum to show this car but working on it has given me ideas to step up the build on the 71. It also stole some parts from the 71 ( FI system/ distributor) so I can buy some updated pieces instead and chose to add air conditioning as well. I may mess around with Lexan for the rear glass and may finish the wheels in a similar fashion. I gave myself 4 weeks to get complete and done with the Cobra in my spare time and then it's 3 weeks of "full time job" on the 71 over the holidays. Maybe be even ready to paint if I'm good enough.

IMG_9996.thumb.JPG.98d029cbce469b58cefbf7392cc25b97.JPGFinally back on the 71. Just swapping out the old disc brake setup for the new ones. Waiting on lower ball joints and outer rod ends for the front. Monday I start making all the returns and mounting points for the rear panels. Keep you posted on that.

IMG_9894.thumb.JPG.273cd2f4b511e8cd7e998fb252f54c29.JPGAlso kicking around the idea of opening up two grill holes under the bumper. Not sure if I want to direct venting to the brakes or pop in some lights but I like the updated and aggressive appearance. Opinions welcome.

I like the open look on the sides. How about some indirect neon turn signal lighting in the holes that can then double as brake vents. I know a little turn of the century trendy old school but not any more wild than a clear hood scoop. Lol. Looking good. I hope to get started on my rear panel real soon had a little time set back as antique store got a little busy for the holidays.

Yes, to the additional openings. The single opening always looked, to me, like a caricature of a shark/fish mouth. The 3 openings look good together...lights would look great! Happy New Year Angelo!

Don't be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark...Professionals built the Titanic! ::thumb::

Happy new year Angelo!

Looks good with the openings. I'd leave them open. If you fill them with some sort of lights... well they're no longer open. Maybe put a horizontal bar in them like the openings on the front of a 1970 Mustang or like they did with the headlights on the 2005 GTR?

Happy New Year to all of you as well. Health and Happiness to you and your loved ones. Thanks for the inputs. As for the car, I will open them up and likely duct and grill them.

This idea just added another hundred hours of building returns and making more grills. Lol I think my new catch phrase is going to be " With all the work involved, if we didn't love this so much we'd hate it a lot!"
