71 Grabber Green Metallic M code convertible


Recommended Posts

G'day all - Thanks all for your comments and feedback, particularly on the stripes & bonnet. Appreciate the experience and wisdom of all on this forum.

 

It's got factory ram air and I particularly like the black bonnet with the "Ram Air" decal on it, so think I will go with that, and leave the hockey stick off for now.

 

Whilst I would like to take the credit for the paint job, I can't - a mate runs a paint & panel shop, so he's weaved his magic for mates-rates.

I too am Grabber (what ever that is) Green with a Sportsroof in Mach 1 livery .... you're project does look awesome.

What decals /detailing will you use and what colour?

Awesome car - I'm basically thinking of doing exactly what you have minus the Mach 1 sticker.  Love the ram air stickers the black bonnet.

Out of interest, any idea of what your car would be worth over there in the current market?   Just trying to figure out how much $$'s do I keep putting into mine.

Merry Christmas All,

 

I hope everyone had a great festive season. Things are hot down-under;- you may have seen what seems like half of our country suffering bush-fires. The people fighting these fires are absolute heroes.

 

Thankfully no fires are close to my home.

 

There has been some progress on the Mustang resto. Just about done - just need to get the interior put back together, some chrome trims, then get it inspected at the local authority to have it road-registered, and we can finally hit the road. At this stage I'm not going to go with the hockey sticks, and I may even not go the black bonnet.... although that may change in time, as I must admit I love the look of the ' 351 RAM AIR' stickers on the black bonnet.

 

Here's some more recent snaps.....

Very nice, looks fantastic

 

Hope the weather changes a bit to help put down the fires.

Heck of a job those fire fighters are doing. A large group from here is over there trying to help just saw on the news some more are heading your way.

The car looks great. I'd love to see a few more photos if you have time.

Finally picked her up yesterday from the workshop! Some minor teething to do, but loving it. Weather not great down under, so will try to get some more picks up soon when sun is out, but here's one to get started.....
