        Currently looking at Sterling Grey, but Pepper Grey looks good too (if a tad obvious).

        Need to see both in the metal really, but I suspect I'd be happy with either...

              Ok - a long overdue update, but there's been a lot going on! The car has now arrived at Phil King's and will be wheeled in tomorrow when a certain '71 Blue Mach 1 vacates... :)

              I had a good chat with Phil about what I want done and then had a good look around the car - first time I've seen it since the dipping. Pics below. Overall, not too bad, but the welding on the floor-pan is comically bad, the quarters will need replaced, the trunk lid and doors had fillered rust holes in them and there's a few bullet holes in one of them:



















              Further updates as things go, plus Phil's Facebook page will track progress too.

                Wow amazing photos. Re the bullet holes, a previous owner wasn't Mr E. Presley was it?

                  No, but he was definitely a cowboy (judging by the welds, re-spray, wiring, etc, etc)! Plus, the car'd been laid up in Texas - I think bullet holes are pretty much standard in that circumstance.

                      Interesting photos and a lot of good work. It kind of looks frightening but with all the panels that can be bought for these cars I am sure it will be looking solid again pretty soon.

                        I certainly wasn't solid previously - there were, at places, three layers of 'floorpan' on there, not much of which was welded to the frame rails...

                          We find this. I just can't imagine putting in a pan and going "that will be fine"

                          Did you decide on a paint hue yet?

                            Probably Pepper Gray. Will wait to see samples first though...

                              I'll send a blow out car up to you when I paint the Eleanor currently being prepped.

                                Not easy to make out but the replacement floor that had previously been fitted was at least 30mm above the floor support.
