I had the best of both worlds today, I worked on both my fastback and coupe. I finally got the battery box beat into submission and can now fit the lid on with no interference problem with the trunk edge. I drilled two new holes in the bottom and shifted the box forward. Here is the final result:

Then, I went to work on the coupe to get it detailed for the Utah National MCA show, which is rapidly approaching. I took Murphy out for a little drive, got the tire pressure checked (they were way low), and added enough gas to make sure I wouldn't have to stop during the Pony Trails.

The trunk took all of 5 minutes to clean, and then it was time for the exterior. I was planning on polishing and waxing the car today, but after really looking at it, I don't see a reason to do that. I did use the clay bar on it, but it really didn't need that either. You can see how well the paint is shining by the picture I took of the trunk lid:

Tomorrow, it's the interior and undercarriage, and maybe the engine, if there is time. It's really hard to stop working on Trouble, however. I have to say it's a whole lot more fun building a Mustang compared to detailing one! ::

Both cars look great, Laurie! I hope my CatVert project turns out as well as Trouble has. I'll have to take a look at some of the things you've done and see if they inspire any ideas.

I'd have agree about more fun working on a car than detailing. Probably why none of the current crop of cars have any decent paint. LOL

Glad to see Trouble progressing - a very impressive trunk (Murph's paint is spectacular too)!

Regards,
