Seamless 65 fb

I have a 65 fastback and I'm debating on making it seamless. Don't worry for all you concours guys out there, the car is already custom and there is no going back. The body lines are already welded, lower Shelby scoops are molded in, and quarter extensions and rear valance are all welded in. The car also has 68 Shelby upper scoops over the original 65 vents. They are molded in but have bubbled and cracked over time. Should I mold it in again or should I separate them and bolt them in so I don't have the worry of them cracking again? Also it has a custom front valance made of fiberglass, I'm having it made out of metal, when it's done should I have it welded to the fenders to rid of the seam or just butt it up? Thanks Dom

I think the only thing I'm not going to mold in again is the upper scoops cause the body lines don't match up and that's why they crack

Yea the car must have looked awesome at one time. The previous owner didn't take the best care of it and that's why I'm having to redo the body work and paint. The rims just got mounted with drag radials this last weekend. The fiberglass front valance has been hit and the driver side door has swung open to far and caused the door to crunch. All of it will be fixed this week when it's in the shop and it will be just like new.

It should be great. Are you going full restomod with it? I really like new technology in an older body.

Yea it's going to be a full restomod, got the nine inch under it already going to have it narrowed an inch on each side then put coil overs. Front will also have tubed arms with coilovers. Just debating on going with a air bag type setup for the shows but I'll prob just do coilovers from Ron Morris. It will also have power rack and pinion. Subframe connectors and a t56 6 spd out of a cobra or I might by just the new kit they have. Havent even thought about interior yet lol

Just a thought. Mild small block with a blower sticking out of the hood. Would be something.

It's got a mildly built 302 that runs real good with the 4spd, but I might throw the 351w that I built that has a blower on it in the car. Then I'd shave the shock towers though. I think I'll keep a 302 in it and rebuild it to greater specs with some aluminum edelbrock heads. I'm having a gt350 style hood scoop put on the hood. It's goin to be mounted like the AC cobra hood scoops with the locking Allen head bolts. Did the same thing to my coupe and it turned out good. I doubt I'll put the 351 in it cause I want it to be a car I can drive to shows. But I might change my mind when installing that crazy 6 spd

In the pic the opening was taped off for the winter rain. It has an oval cut out for the cobra air cleaner and I set it up like a ram air
