    The majority of my car has been done...Only thing it lacks is a new dash and new leather for the front seats. For the time being I was wondering if there is anywhere I can find seat covers that will fit on the original seats? They aren't terrible but they are a little beat up. Just want...

    Hello everyone, Sorry to be a newb here but I have a scenario I never thought would happen that I need some help. My brother inherited my fathers 1969 Mach 1 390 S code which last ran in 1996. It has spent most of its life in a garage but it did spend about 10 years in the elements. It is pretty...

    Hello all, I recently started working rust found on the roof of my mustang. I worked on 1/4 of it and got it to bare metal, used some rust Dissolver to remove any remaining rust areas, and sprayed some red iron oxide to prevent rust from coming back and was looking to continue on with this...

    So I've been restoring my 'stang. The outside is all done, and now it's time to work on the inside. Which isn't going to be much thank God. But moving on. The top of my door panel is kind of rough. The rest of the door is fine, but the top has some surface rust and the paint is faded really bad...

    I found a 1975 Mustang coupe on craigslist and was able to talk him down to $700. It has the 302 in it and very little rust. I was wondering how much these cars are worth once they are fully restored. I need to make sure I can get what I put into the car. Also it has a vinyl top...

    As we all know, the third tail lights on the 99-04 Mustangs take a beating from the sun. Has anyone had success in restoring them back to looking new? I have tried wet sanding with 1000, 1500 and 2000 grit sand paper and meguiars plastix, but no luck. Any help is appreciated! I really don't want...

    I joined this forum a few months back when the hunt for my Mustang began. I'm happy to report I finally found her and although she is in rougher shape than I had hoped, I'm sure I found that right shop and the right guy to make her beautiful again. I didn't know when I found this shop not too...

    Hey guys, I just bought a 66 that was being used as a daily driver. It's got the straight 6, it runs great, but it's in need of body repair. There are a few spots of rust coming up through the paint, and I would like to strip the car completely, fix any rust, and repaint. My question is should...

    A while back I had restoration/rust repair/structural work done my 68 convertible --- badly. Looks like, in order to get everything to fit properly, I will likely have to pull a lot of it apart, learn to weld it back together and go from there. Because of the work that has already been...

    I want to get a project car, but I am torn. Ideally I would like to get a 64-66 Mustang that already has a V8 so that I can pull it out and modify it a bit. All I can seem to find are decent cars that have an in-line 6 in them. I am looking for any advice with this!! Ultimately I want to...

    Would it be smarter to restore my 1967 Coupe or to upgrade it performance wise. It has no paint currently so it must be repainted(bringing down the value). At this point im thinking more economical performance, but please let me know what you think.:headscratch:

    :: Sorry if this is a repost :: I'm wondering if there is a website or other literature available that could give me advice on how to go about restoring a mustang? I don't really have much previous mechanical experience except installing an exhaust, brakes, oil changes etc. I'm not an idiot...
