Thanks for your kind words. I currently have around 5,000 photographs of the structure and build so I need to spend some time organizing. We used a reciprocating saw to cut the radiator support, so there was very little material loss. On the backside, we cut and welded in some brackets using scraps from widening the radiator support cutout. The removable cross member is bolted in using a pair of factory U clip nuts. I like the simple and factory aesthetic. I have no idea how anyone could install a Coyote without making such a modification.I am following along to see how nice this project turns out. So far, I am very impressed with your work and detailed notes. Very nice job!
Would you happen to have some detailed pictures of how you modified your radiator support when you cut off the top portion? I like the idea of having the extra room for motor installation, curious to see how it looks bolted back together too.
I purchased the smoked glass during a sale from CJ Pony Parts. I think Auto City is the original supplier to USA. The glass is imported from Thailand.I may have missed by scanning too quickly, but where did you get your smoked glass from?
Looking forward to the fifth and hopefully final trip to see my car this week. I managed to book an appointment and have requested a viewing on a lift. In summary, I last received photographs of the progress around Fall of last year and it is my understanding that everything passed quality control around the end of March. Looking forward to resuming the build! It’s been one for the books.I've read through all 13 pages. This is a great source of information for me. Any updates on the build?
Thanks for your enthusiasm. I’m excited and am looking forward to resuming the build sometime early next year. I’ve been putting my positive energy into finishing the restoration of my Mom’s 65 Fastback and have been searching for original parts for the 65 T code convertible shell.So did this build just end? Can’t wait to see more.
