      The roof skin itself is also in good condition and will only require a buzz down with a DA the priming. In the lower section of the sail panel we will cut out the corrosion and replace with new steel similar to what we will do with the frame.

      Panel Alignment.

      This is a quick mock up before we have started any adjustments. (there will be many!)

      I am a pure amateur at this type of work and this is my first build of this size but i must admit i am really enjoying it and learning lots of new skill along the way. If anyone sees anything in my posts that i am going to make a huge stuff up please give me a shout. Also any advice is greatly received.
      Thanks
      Craig.

      Hi everyone.
      It's been a little while since i posted anything on this sit so i thought i'd give a quick update.
      We have been slogging away at the body work when time would allow and even though it seemed to me to be slow going i think we have reached a point where we are about to start actually putting panels back onto the car instead of removing or repairing.
      We have fitted the engine cradle and repaired the rust holes in the sail panel so after the festive season break we are a little more inspired to get moving.
      Here are a few pics of our progress.
      Any tips and observations are really welcome.

      We then measured up the cradle ready to weld in followed by the Shock mounts.

      The cradle took some time to get into the correct position with metal needing to be removed from either side to ensure a good tight fit that was square and central.
      Once that was in place we tacked the shock mounts in and proceed to test fit the control arms prior to final weld up.

      There have been a couple of minor issues with the IFS kit but overall its seems a quality set up. Not sure about the company's customer service though but that's for another time.
      It seems we have reached a mile stone and we may be able to post some more interesting posts as we rebuild the 67 Coupe.

      Great build! Glad to see another '67 Mustang on the forum. I'd love to have the solid foundation you are creating to have been the starting point for my build.

      Hi Everyone just a quick update of where we are at.
      We have got the rear end tacked on and are going to pack the trailer and take the car into work to do as many spot welds in a weekend that we can. We'll spend a day marking all the welds we have left from the beginning of the build with a paint pen to check we don't miss any. I have decided on a Chassis works rear end suspension with a fabricated third member housing from a local company down here called Race Products. I found them completely by accident locally here in Brisbane and the work these guys do is amazing. (www.raceproducts.net)
      With the axle decided on we needed to get the wheel and tire sizes to get the correct axle length manufactured. I saw a 66 Coupe on this site by with 315-35-17 rears on and set about seeing if i could get that size tucked underneath the rear end without cutting the frame rails as its a big no, no down here if you ever want to get your car road registered.
      I looked a the Autoworks minitubs which i think will suit me just fine. They only require the flange of the rail edge cutting and straighten up the inner wheel arch which should give me enough room.
      I'll post a couple of quick pictures to give an idea.

      Love the look of 17" rims on an older car but tire choices are getting harder to find over here.

      You can just see in the third photo the amount of boot floor that is able to be trimmed up to the rail to give enough room for the tire. I will move the bump stop to the inside of the rail along with the leaf spring mount.
      I think it was a user by the name of, I Got Oil, who has inspired this tire size choice. Check his build out it looks great.
