Makes me wish I had some American Muscle. There's a a fox body 5.0 for $2000 right now, almost makes me wish I had waited to buy my car.

On an unrelated note, could I get a large picture of your Prelude to use for the Sport compact article in Wikipedia?

I used to rebuild old 'stangs for a living a long time ago, that car looks in great shape.

I recommend you double check the hood to cowl panel since those are the first to rot and leave you with a waterfall inside the car on rainy days.

Also the rear quarter panels tend to rust and rot just below the simulated intake vents but I see you have replaced both rear quarter panels but with parts for a 68, not a 67; so you will have to cut them to fit the 67 simulated vents (68 came with some thin plastic moldings that looked like vents) :wtf:

Why is there a metal panel separating the cabin from the trunk? that is not original (original was a cardboard like cut panel available at your friendly NPD)

Remember to also check the trunk lid, due to the MUSTANG lettering on the trunk lip they rust and rot real nasty, no amount of work will save it so a replacemente is almost necessary. Eventhough if you manage to remove the cancer it will come back to haunt you in 5 or 6 years.

All in all it's looking great and you have what looks like a solid base to work on :D

-the cowl situation has already been taken care of with the plastic cowl vent repair kit :)

-the rear quarters were rotting horribly at the wheel wells, so i have new quarter panel skins. they would have cost about triple as much to get them w/ the louvers, so i got these and am just going to put the louvers from the original quarters into it after. those are still good. also, the 68 quarters are different in that they have a side reflector lens near the rear of the car.

-the metal seperating the cabin and the trunk is much better than cardboard, dont you think?

-the deck lid is completely covered in bondo, i have yet to take that down. i'm afraid a new one will be in order down the road.

Alright, glad to see a restoration done right! I've seen so many people slap some bondo on top of rust, paint it, and call it restored. It's just sad. Great work!

Errr... didn't mean to offend your work or car, it's just that I though you were doing a show type restoration :slap:
Judges can be real anal about somethings in a show (uncorrect bolts comes to mind) and I truly thought you were walking down that path.

Anyways, congrats on the work your are deffo doing things the way they are supposed to be done :)

I knew better. He mentioned in the first thread about this car that it was an original Straight Six 3 Speed Manual car. I know he is not gonna go back that way, so originality is gone. RestoMod all the way. That is what it is all about. :D

I can't wait to see it done.

i'm sorry man, didnt mean for that to sound rude. i was just typing in a hurry. anyway, that piece was missing altogether, so i threw some sheet metal in there and i plan on mounting 2 6x9s facing the interior of the car there too, so the cardboard probably wouldn't be a good mounting source. there are factory speaker slots above the rear seats, but i think that it's tacky and i dont want any speakers to be visible. this is definitely not a showcar. it'll be either a daily driver or a weekend fun car, haven't decided yet. i suppose i'll wait to see how the 302 handles gas mileage.
here's the driver's quarter completely welded in and primed.
