This Mustang is rust free, and all original sheet metal. Amazing! It is a 289 High Performance GT model. Most of the block sanding is finished at this point, all door/hood gaps are set.
For some reason the hood had a slightly higher crown at the back where it meets the cowl. Several relief cuts were made in the hood bracing to allow the hood to flatten out slightly to match the cowl. The relief cuts were then welded. Now the back of the hood aligns with the cowl.
The front sub-frames were dented from different jacks over the years. The black line marks where the frame will be cut out. Once the piece is removed it can be straightened using a hammer and dolly technique. After the piece is straight it is welded back in.
