I did more today on the fastback. All of the floorboards are now coated with truck bedliner. I figured this would be a pretty good undercoat and it looks pretty nice so far. It has been insane how much sand I have found since the car has been sandblasted. EVERY crevass possible. I vacuumed all the sand out from the floorboards, cleaned em, and finished shooting on the liner. Also, the engine builder said the engine will be ready to drop in probably by mid next week and I will be ordering an MSD 6AL along with a water pump, fuel pump, etc VERY soon. I also got the # of a guy who sells paint for the engine compartment with hardener and all in a spray can and will be getting some of that soon to paint the compartment. Slowly but surely. Finishing by graduation (high school) just might be possible after all :)

Chris, That spray-on truck bed liner is the best stuff since sliced bread! With all the hours restoring my 'vert all the open track events and autocrossing left enough of the under soft to make working on parts of it a pain in the... Sorry I can't say that to an unaged audience. Have you choosen a paint shop yet? Rick Flores over in Universal City way is a long time enthusiast as well and I've seen some good work out of his shop. You have not yet begun to discover sand, wear goggles for the first 2 years of driving the car! I blew high pressure air forwards, backwards, right, left up, down, between my legs and under my arms only to find.... I had body odor and the mustang had sand coming out of the vents for a while after starting to drive it again.
