Good camera! The clear close-up fotos are fine, as is the good lighting. The number of fotos and pixel count depends on how many one thinks it takes to show each step. Best of luck 2 u! Good beginning. Thanx!

Been toying with the Mustang a little, took the org. frame and white glued to the tub after I painted it and the tub





as you can see the frame tubing is way too big, got out my .080 rod and started cutting and scratching a new front half, here is where I'm at with it







looks a lot better but still have a lot more to do on the frame.

Got the injector stacks on the manifold and are they tall



should be able to get the frame all done and maybe do a mock up this weekend sometime

Nice work on the hood Ash.

John, the new frame looks much better.

Frame is looking good. I like those tall injector tubes.

I too like the injector tubes. Back in the day the tall ones were used with automatic transmissions, and the short ones for manuals. It had something to do with max power production at different RPMs for the different transmissions.

Just trying to remember where I've seen/heard MS3 red......

Then it came back to me, there's cans of it in the barn of the farm I used to shoot on, they use it on their agricultural machinery.

Got any farms close by Paul, maybe beg/steal/borrow a bit for the airbrush?

After going through all the processes of painting the Mustang body,
I noticed I hadn't sanded off the mould lines on the left hand side - what a chump I am !

When researching the 351W engine, (apart from the new ford van release)
it appears that it was only available in AMT's 1971-1973 annual kits,
and in the reissued 1973 Mustang, non of which I have in my stash.
So I'm going to use a better quality mould 289/302 from the '66 Mustang, and try to raise the deck.
If the repaint of the body goes well (fingers crossed) that's what I'll be doing next.

I'm waiting for the paint to harden, then attempt to blow the bits in, and hope the lacquer covers it.
....Can't believe I went through filling, priming, and top coating without seeing it. Doh!

Got some more done , got the lower frame done and white glued the rear end in







stuck a set of slick's on and set the body on to see how it looked







looks to me that the body needs to come down some over the frame, what do you guy's think ??

Tub might get modified which would lower the body and also make the rear wheel wells look more real





Do you guy's think I should put in a full tunnel or leave it short like it is ??

here are the front wheel's I have to work with, center is the plastic kit ones ( nope ) and the other two are from the tire shop



I'm thinking the one on the right would be about right  

Going to start the engine so I can get the front bracing on the frame figured out. That's all for right now but will up date when I get more done

I think the one on the left is perfect.

I'm leaning to the right on this, feeling that the left tyre is too low profile.
It really depends on how it would look under the completed body.
Nice work so far !

Not being too knowledgeable about guessing/imagining the finished stance etc etc, logically for me the right wheel and tyre would be more suitable as it has a similar diameter to the original.

Then again I could have missed the point completely and be talking garbage!

Just a quickie....all is not lost on my Mustang.
I managed to save the paint, and I'm back on track with the build.

My build has halted until the weekend, have extended the rear and chopped the front bumper, but lot of work left to do yet before I can post anything.

Hopefully next week!

Got the engine just about done, needs dist. and oil filter put on yet and got it fitted to the chassis



and that's as far back it will go with out doing some more mod's, set the hood to see where that was at for the fit



gotta adjust the front of the inj. opening but that's easier than the tub.
Here a couple of the whole car





now I'm ready for the front susp. to see if I want to use the straight axle or scratch one after I get the front bars put in. Will update when I get more done

A micro update as I have been back on it today. Sorry that the pics are  a little poor, I was in the garden.








Decided to do a curbside so I can keep the engine for a future build, and with all this scratch building  not only will I hopefully have a great looking car, I can also drop the engine into a van that I wish to build later on.
Will start the filling and sanding tomorrow.

Cheers Dan.

Yeah I know... put lots of filler in today on the rear, lots more to go!!
Started the crazy modding of the front bumper and trying to work out how to fill it + need to make the front grill.. not an easy task!









Why did i not go with the standard car or the Porsche I bought  few weeks ago.. *sigh*
