She arrived last night, hosed her down today and took the spare parts out then took her for a spin. Had to rearrange my work bench for all the new tools and parts.

Not the prettiest girl at the dance, but with a little makeover she'll be quite the looker!

My wife wants to call my friend I got my car from and thank him for taking me away from her..... All I do is work on the car, no time for her LOL

We have been married for 27 years in June, what does she expect??????

Thanks guys, I didn't show the picture of the driver door...it's from a different Mustang (long story) and it's Gold Glow. The original color was Gold Glow, someone did a Maaco job on it and just sprayed that brownish color over the top.

She is a blast to drive though. I have to tune the carb for high elevation (runs rich), but it's still a lot of fun.

Excellent canvas. I saw a hint of glow gold around the trunk lid key cylinder. Be sure to post more pics and the marty report if you get one.

Will do! I'm going to pull the carpet up next week. I'll check for a build sheet while I'm at it.

Once I have the new paint and interior then she'll be cool with it. Right now she doesn't want to be seen in the same zip code with it! :D

The one rule I've had to follow from SWMBO is that the car remain driveable....or that it's put back together by the end of the weekend.
