72 Mach 1 project


Recommended Posts

Some updates. Got the the HVAC box shipped in, was assembled with all new NOS from all classic. Started stripping the doors of all trim, glass. Felt lucky and pulled the rear glass, luckily no cracking noises and no rust!! Rear bumper, lights, trim off. Start stripping paint off in the next day or so.

Been a while since an update. Lots more sanding and stripping paint but we can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Unibody 95% done. Roof finished tonight. No rust there or on the drip rails or the window channels. The lead seams look great no cracks there. 40a84d8438837aa985f110fd2d512690.jpgbf1173d1ff30406905d49b8308953816.jpgf62edc69c39d7285e27b14ac91abb849.jpg2443068329419ef212c6957a1d9a56ec.jpg

Had to do some shop cleaning and reposition some cars. Got the cobra jet out in the sun for the first time since February when it was delivered.

Inching closer to paint! Driver door all stripped and resealed on the seams and the little bit of rust where the cowl sides meet the rocker is fixed. Finishing up the passenger side tonight.

Some pics of the finished driver side and progress on the passenger.

Been trying to save as much as the original sheet metal as possible. At some point there had been a fender bender in front.

Thanks for the updates. You are making great progress and it looks like doing quality work. Please keep the updates flowing. It is great to see another one getting closer to being on the road again. My car also came out of the Salt Lake City area originally. My long standing joke was that at some point it was parked in the lake. Mine suffered a lot of the ravages of salt either in Utah or sometime in WI before I acquired in in 1984. Mine came out of Ogden, UT.

Well fender #2 is done. Couple of dents to hammer out no rust anywhere on this one. My "need to do" pile is getting a lot smaller.

Finished up most of the interior painting this week. Got the fenders, hood, valances, and trunk lid all in for primer and first coats of poly. Don't forget everyone this car will be for sale.

Some under body shots!!

All the inside is stripped, primed and back in green. Looks like we will be ready for priming and poly next week.
