Default Slowly but Surely...

Visited 0327 in the shop today. The rear end is all put together (pic 1). Driver's door is assembled and in place (pic 2). Next will be passenger door, fenders, then hood, then front end.
The reason it's taken so long is my friend takes everything apart, cleans, removes rust/reconditions every part, then reassembles. Hardware and metal fasteners get tumbled to clean them. He took the doors completely apart; windows out, all mechanical components. Cleaned inside and out, then painted both sides. Removed all rust and cleaned the parts. Reassembled with new rubber and greased the moving parts. It's like new. A lot of details I'm not sure I would have done myself, but that door in place operates like new. Perfectly aligned, closes solidly, etc.
I'm getting the interior shop down the street all lined up and ready. He says with all materials and components he can knock that out in 2 days. We'll see...

Doing it right like that makes a huge difference in the long run Steve and is worth the effort/dollars now. No hidden problems that can come back to haunt you years later that may be very hard to repair once the car is all put back together. Wow, I can't wait to see the finished product.

Thanks, everyone, for the encouragement. Mike, I am really hoping to have it ready for the Ripon EV show in October. I hope you will be there this year.

Default 0327 Update

Passenger door is reassembled and installed. My buddy painted it twice because he didn't like the way it came out the first time. I just sent him more money and told him I want to pick up the pace, as I want to have 0327 ready for the Ripon EV Show in October of this year.
I also told him to repaint the "hockey sticks", the trim on the rear quarter panels that cover the paint break between the black quarters and the white pillars. He had painted them white and said they look good in white and that Ford would have painted them that way. CHP1982 (Jon) told me they must be satin black to be correct and I looked through some photos, including 0255, and they indeed were. I told my friend I don't care what Ford would have done, satin black it shall be!
This next week I will be visiting 0327 and hope to have more updated photos.

Default 0327 Progress May 29 2019

Everything is done now except for fenders (next week) and front bumper cover/grill. Pics are below; I had my pal Dahui Zonggao post them in the Facebook SSPMustang.net group for me so our FB friends would see them too.
