I am surprised no one has commented on the dents in the side structure of the hood.... Shocked

You will find those dents in just about every original hood on Mustangs as that was where they hit them with a mallet to get the curve right.

Yep them dents are in mine, then again i think someone used a mallet to dent every panel on my fastback.
Phew!!! i jagged the factory look on mine then. I have no problems at all replicating a run with modern paints. I think its just one of my natural talents Very Happy
Great work as usual Steve . Thumbs Up

I did notice the dents but I figured they must be on purpose given that you know every inch of the Q's metal

I noticed the dents as well and thought there had to be a reason.

It must be a weird feeling Foresight paying people to put dents and bad paint jobs on your car. Most people pay to get the dents removed and want no runs.

It is all about perspective Hawko. I see it as period correct metal working and a well researched history preserving paint job...at least that is what I tell myself so I can sleep at night :rotfl:

Well if anyone outside of here points it out to to you Lee, simply tell them it is extra paint at no extra charge and smile.

Kerry I was talking to a very knowledgeable mustang fellow last week and he mention the little known fact of the bonnet "dents" . he has photos of the factory guy 'adjusting the bonnet' by closing it on a piece of 4*2 which was jammed across the towers.

Great work I hope to see this masterpiece at easter..

To do the quotes just click on the quote button on the top right of each post.

You can then delete parts of the post that you dont need but just make sure you dont change the [quote="ND69"] [/quote] tags. The "ND69" will be the persons username that you are quoting so dont be alarmed if it isnt your own username.

Its from the roof, but its about the size of the electric moon roof we installed, that was the plan wasnt it? no................ I'm sure we discussed it........................shit wrong car.


Steve, nice work, you don't see the moon roof option on these cars all that often.

BTW, if you need someone to apply those paint runs, gie me a call. I have the gun set-up especially for this type of 'fine detail' work.
So as not to break-up a good package, I will include H in the deal as she specialises in low-speed dents 😂

You must be a very excited boy Lee. Just skull some red cordial, that will calm you down.

Classic. Makes me smile when people get fixated with uniform panel gaps on old cars that they are looking to buy. Probably the worse they are the more original they are.


Rick.

Old things amuse all minds.
