    Mustang Fastaback 1969 rebuild Part 1

    Hi All,
    My Name is Sven and I have purchased my first Mustang back In April .After initially debating what to do with it I have slowly began to dismantle it interior first (externally the car has been re painted about a year ago) ,as it needed doing to match the rest of the car until there was nothing else left but the bare metal. I am not a mechanic but the fact that this is not a very complex car and my enthusiasm I have done most of the work myself .

    Things that I did so far
    1)remove any paint /rust (as much as possible )

    2)replaced the front inner wing (the battery section)-it costed less then £100 and it fitted close to perfect Scott Drake part::

    3)passenger side fire wall -it seams that this is a week point and is prompt to rust . The fire wall panel is welded on the top the tourqe box and mine had some holes already (driver side is worst ). I have also cut an " access " panel into the box and have managed to remove half of a bag with sand from it and also clean /prep and paint inside the box.

    4)I have now started the driver side but have finished it yet. It is also abit more complicated so someone has done some repaired in the past to the floor . I will be adding pictures latter on

    5)I have cleaned a lot of parts , washed them with degreaser ,then Por15 metal prep (it really works as you can see the all of them turned up) grey colour ,then Por15 rust preventing paint and they are now ready for the final paint. I am using the same technic for the rest of the car



    I thought I will be posting some pictures of the whole process and also open for any guidance and advise
    It looks like it does not let me attached more then 5 pictures so I will have to post it a several times I think

    Thank you

              Hi Sven, fantastic effort there and well done for giving it a go yourself! Are you taking any heat for spreading bits of Mustang all around your home?

                Very nice work you have done so far. I have a 69 Mach 1 which I get limited time to work on as it’s in Florida. I have part rebuilt my engine & heads but not put fully together yet. Have rebuilt my suspension (front) & fitted a disc brake conversion kit. Cleaned underneath & re undersealed. No rust in mine thankfully in floors, torque boxes etc. Keep up your good work. Updates also great to see.
