Going to try and get some more pictures of the car tonight. Car is put altogether and the under side has been POR-15'd and sprayed with Raptor bedliner,interior is painted and the outside is primed ready to start blocking. Car is for a good friend of mine he is building it for his wife. He is a big ford fan.

some updated pics of how the car sits as of now. Getting the deck lid and quarter extensions fitting right was a good bit of work but its worth it I like the spoiler look. All filler work done and Expoxy sealed whole car and primed ready for hours of blocking..:nopity::nopity:. And on its wheels for a trip outside to sweep up the shop..

6645366454For someone else i am doing it as a sideline project. Last one then "WayBack Auto" is retiring. I make enough at the nine to five to cover my hobbies. So after this the elcamino is getting the go ahead. It has already been approved by "Sector 5"(aka the wife).

Holy cow. It's been 5 years. Car is jammed all out. Motor and tranny in. Ready for final paint. That's where it sits waiting for someone to finish it. Can't believe it's been that long.

06-01-2017, 06:34 AM
Wesley, sweet build, did you buy the deck lid and extensions?

06-01-2017, 07:37 AM
Yes. It all came out mustangs unlimited catalog if memory serves. Memory does serve to remember the time it took for it to fit right.

06-02-2017, 01:45 AM
Thx, time was a line item I forgot on my build sheet. It looks good

05-29-2018, 04:32 AM
Well. It's been a minute,but look what has come back into my life. After the owner has been thru some personal stuff he is going to get me to finish the car. He has since changed directions some. More to follow in the coming days. 152976152977
