Mike ive been thinking of building a rotisserie for once my 67 arrives do you have any measurements, websites, or advice on how to go about it? it looks fairly straight forward except my old man or brother would be doing the welding since they are coded welders and im just well.... the humble mechanic/uni bum :rotfl:

I must admit I know I have "over engineered" my rotisserie but that was done more as a result of using what materials I had at hand than anything else :rotfl:

Didn't progress a whole lot today but did at least start tooling around with the rear taillight panel, the trunk corner pieces and the insert in the rear end of the quarter panels... well the left hand side at least...

Also, around 2 this afternoon Pete (Dynamic) and his mate Cam turned up for a visit in Cam's nice looking Red 65 Coupe. The neighbours across the road were having a garage sale and so Cam (thinking kindly that he was doing the right thing) parked on the other side of the road and up 2 doors - I quickly asked him to swing it around and park it right on my front lawn - just for everyone to see!!!

Back on the job... I dragged the trunk lid down from the storage area above the garage as I wanted to make sure that the lock mechanism and the panels all sort of fit together in the right places. Of course that meant I had to go into the storeroom (spare bedroom) and rifle through the 10 or so boxes where I had packed away all of the bits and pieces when I stripped the car down. Fortunately I had bagged and tagged everything so whilst I hadn't exactly inventoried everything with a storage location / box it wasn't too bad digging around through the 56,378,192 bags to find what I needed...

I must say it is hard not to just get stuck into it with the welder and zap everything into place but sure as heck it would all come back and bite me in the proverbial if I did so the small screws will have to do for now to keep it all pinned in place and at least looking like it is advancing in the right direction.



It isn't so important right now to get the trunk completely aligned. This was more about making sure that as I am pinning the panels in place with the screws that it isn't obviously out to one side or sagging somewhere it shouldn't. It will probably stay like this for some time now until I get the rain gutter refabbed, outer wheel houses replaced and the quarter panels reskinned. It's kinda cool to see the trunk lid shut and the M U S T A N G badge(s) across the back!!

Very good mike . The temporary fitting and checking is all necessary to a good job , and it all takes time. My rear quarter on the vert is still tek screwed on waiting for the right time , whenever that is ?

Good work!

Yeah... completely agree on the temp fitting of panels. They will come off and go on and back off a number of times before the final placement - ahhh, patience is a virtue isn't it...

I think it maybe time for another visit down south in the next few weeks - maybe get Craig to take his pony out for a gallop...
