Starting my tribute car

Just rented a garage to start my restoration project to daily driver of my 1966 Mustang coupe 289 AT, PS. Dedicated to my daughter Katie and her fiancé Jesus. Both passed away this year due to a horrendous criminal act .

Starting by rebuilding the entire rearend, adding traction lock, new springs, shocks, replace all front suspension, add disc brakes to front with dual master cylinder. Engine is 289 runs good, cleanup and tun-up ,paint and interior...........pretty much everything to make a dependable driver spending wisely and doing most of the labor myself. Thanks!

That's awesome... I'm just getting started on the 68. Getting ideas everyday... I think I know what it is, but just to confirm... Hot dip?

I should say hot tank. Machine shop has a hot tank and it removes all the grease inside and out. Charged me $40 for what would have been a mess to clean. Also am powder coating the rear housing, brake backing plates, shock mounts and drive shaft. Picked up the shock mounts and brake drum backing plates. Came out really nice with Satin Black. A little more money, but will last along time and looks good.

Removed fuel tank today and started to remove corrosion from trunk area. Has a light film of rubbery compound to remove. Has lots of cracks and crevices for rust to hide.

I am so sorry to hear of your loss.
Sadly I have some idea of how you must feel, I lost my youngest daughter to a drunk driver accident a few years ago. We intend to rebuild her 89 Mustang GT Convertible as she had planned to and her sisters will show it at car shows in her memory and to promote a message against drinking and driving.


Please accept my condolences and I wish you the best of luck with your project.
If there is anything I can do to help, you just ask and if it is possible I will do my best to help you.

Wow, thank you very much. I also wish you condolences as well. That is very kind. I will keep you posted. I have some plans to put Katie's portrait on the car . This has been the only think I have been able to focus on this past year. Joined a local Mustang club and am volunteering for the annual roundup in July. Blessings to you and your family!

Thank you too.
We have also considered putting a portrait of Andrea on her car. There are graphics companies who can use a picture that you have to do this if you decide to do so.
I was injured at work in 2009 and I'm still recovering from that and unable to do much of anything yet. A couple more operations to go and I hope it will be finished so I can get started on my projects.
