Fixing up the Mustang

I have always be partial to Fords and one of my favorites is the Ford Mustang. I always wanted to buy a Mustang and I finally did about two years ago. The Mustang I bought was a 1965 coup. Here are some pictures of the process of fixing it up.

This is what my Mustang looked like when I bought it two years ago.It was not in bad condition but it was in need of some TLC.

This is some of the rust I had to deal with. It is hard to see how bad it was in photo but believe me it was bad.

In this photo the Mustang was prepped for flames. I drew the flames on the car with FineLine tape and then just used newspaper to keep the overspray off the rest of the car.

This is the finished product as of this posting. I still need to do some interior work and want to put a better suspension under it.
