65 fastback restomod recovery

Well picked up my 65 fb a few months ago for 10. Had some problems but looked good. I decided to redo the car and have hit some speed bumps here are some pics. The upper side scoops were fiberglasses in and wer cracking. So we pulled them off and found lots of surface rust and that they welded sheet metal in the luver openings. Decided I'm going to have some metal scoops made instead and welded in. Front valance was also fiberglass and the metal version is being mocked up. Drivers door was crunched and fender so we straightened it. Also had dents here and there and basketball dents on the top and they are cured. The biggest problem was the stupid 68 firebird tail lights. They welded bar to get the lip for the opening and it took a lot of grinding but they are off. Also the custom metal flares and decklid needed some repair and reshaping. Also welded body limes and mirror and antenna holes

You just got to be patient and wait for the right deal to come along. I couldn't believe it when I picked up the fastback for 10k. The whole drive home while trailering it I was in disbelief it felt like a dream. Something only mustang lovers know about. We cherish them, I'll never get rid of mine. My first car was the black vert you see in the pic

Hey I can't decide if I should shave the door handles on the fastback. It's either shave them, or put the billet ones they came out with on it. What do you guys think

Yea I know I'm just very indecisive. Plus I already have the doors completely straight so I don't know if I want to have to redo them. I just know it'll make it look alot cleaner.

Re: 65 fastback restomod recovery

yeah when you shave the handles you have to weld the holes shut and it might cause you more work to re straigten the door because of warpage.

Yea I already had to go through that when closing off the remote mirror and antenna holes. I just don't know, maybe Im just making more work for myself, I don't know if the final outcome will be worth all the work.

I decided not to, they add just the minimum amount of classic touch to it. I'm already modernizing the entire car so I need to leave some original touches

Here are some pics of the front end body worked in the full metal version, also the new metal side scoops, and now the tail light panel completely closed off and no more firebird openings. I had the radiator support body worked cause it had the die cut opening in it and I had them closed off. There will be two dual pass oil coolers in the opening. That's why you can see that bracket faintly in the opening.
