Dynamic,

Maybe we could car pool to the next meeting. you're only just up the road, and suspect is down the road. even if we don't ride a mustang there, at least we can talk them there and back.

My latest shipment arrived, cleared customs / AQIS and was ready for pickup yesterday arvo so I took an early mark from work and headed over to Welshpool to collect the load. Gotta love NPD for packing everything into one big mutha of a box.

So, here's what I got:

* 1 complete firewall
* Both front torque boxes
* Both cowl side panels
* 3 inner fenders
* LH outer wheel well
* Battery hold down clamp, bolts etc

Today I got stuck into the left front torque box and firewall removal.





I have put in a temporary brace across the backend of the front frame rail extensions and welded it to the inner rockers so that the dash, rockers etc don't sag when I cut out the torque box.



As I am replacing the rear inner fenders I decided to cut them out leaving them attached to the firewall so that I still have a reference when welding in the new rear inner fenders to the new firewall.



Looking back from the RH side over the engine bay... it looks decidedly empty with the firewall completely out now.



Spent most of the arvo cleaning up where the old inner fender was welded prepping it for the new one as well as the tops of the front frame rail extensions and so on...



I pinned in the new LH rear inner fender with the cleco fasteners so I could drop the new firewall into position and see how it was all sitting. Not too bad at this stage although it doesn't seem to want to sit completely flush which I guess is to be expected.

I'm also cleaning up the area on the outside of the front frame frame rail extension that gets covered over by the torque box (you can see it in the picture below). Although it has lasted 40 odd years with little evidence of rust there's no point in not doing the job properly whilst it is exposed so I am going to prime it for good measure.



The firewall is a dynacorn product however the new rear inner fenders are Canadian along with the torque boxes. Gotta say that they (the rear inner fenders) seem a little roughly cut and I guess it is so that they can be trimmed back for final fit??

Mike.
You are doing what a lot of us would not attempt or have the ability to do. It demonstrates the determination and enthusiasm to takle a trade that not many people have the understanding or skills to complete. I enjoy the photographic journey, that at the end of the day provides an explanation of how this is all acheived by a mustang owner.
Cheers...

Awww shucks Medic... Embarassed

It all can look a little overwhelming at times to be honest but a step back, look at it from different angles and then ask ask ask on forums just like this one where we have the real gurus with the knowledge repository - I don't think we need to name them again...

Anyways - thanks for that... Thumbs Up
