1969 Cobra Jet Mustang

This is a project that we have been on for about 6 months now.
We totally sandblasted the body and took it apart and set it on a car-o-liner or dedicated jig.
We did sheet metal work, quarters and skins. After all the bodywork is done, we sent all the parts through the high-grade black primer, base coat, and clear coat.
We installed the front rail windshield, but we did the headliner first because it wraps around the edge of the body.
We also installed gaskets, which are glued in and actually roll over the edge which keeps the headliner looking nice and tight.
We did all new Detroit leaf springs and shackles.
Totally cleaned out the rear.
All new fluids, axels, back-end and full brake job with new cylinders, clips, shoes, drums, and springs.

You will see more pictures and words to this post as we move along with the restoration.

So keep checking it out and contact us for any info!

Update 6/11/18

We just got done re-building the 9-inch rear.

 

we opted for the stainless steel brake lines and fuel lines. The brake lines run right down the tunnel, with brand new factory clips.

 

we’ve got new Detroit speed made in USA Leaf Springs and we are going to refinish the brake drums. We also finished putting the 428 engine together.
