Well we've done quite a bit in the last 2 weeks. I've finally gotten caught up in my finances after graduating from college and time is becoming available. The front clip is complete and ready to roll. This weekend I'll clean up and weld in my new strut rod brackets to finish up the welding part. If I'm lucky I'll also get to clean all the dirt and paint off, patch any holes from the welding and then spray a good coat of black paint on the sucker. After that its back together with the front end so that maybe I'll get to do some driving again. Here are a couple of pictures of the new clip:

With the front clip now free from damage I've moved on to the doors and began evaluating the quarters a little more. Stripping paint is NOT fun when its 5 coats thick.
Haven't been working on the car due to lack of workspace. Will continue early in the year when I get my place situated. A fellow from Australia was kind enough to write and offer to send me a picture of a pewter grey 1969 Mustang Mach 1 he owns. I'm quite jealous of this car but much appreciate the picture. Check it out.(click for larger pic)

I got everything in the front sanded down and have to do some seem filling with 3M seem filler then I'm priming it and ordering a front end rebuild kit to put the tires back on. This is imperative because a big part of why its been so hard to work on my car is its immobile. I've decided its best to get that front clip totally done and then worry about everything else. I'll probably get the 302 engine I have back in it so I can at least move it around. I also wrote about my respect for people who do classic car restorations.|
