Like the lip on the trunk and extensions. Is that fiberglass? Looks good and way too familiar....I have my 67 down to metal now and will begin blocking soon.

Deck lid and extensions are fiberglass. Got it off ebay from Meg lite several years ago. Deck lid is nice but extension took a lot of fitting. Think it really makes the looks of the car.

That will look nice. Took me about two hours and a couple of cut off wheels,...my old original bezels were pitted, so I cut off the grill work, drilled out the stock mounting posts and the new Shelby bezels mounting posts lined up with the stock Cougar modified base. Worked out amazingly well!

Plans are Sonic blue with all chrome powder coated black. We are mounting tail lights with cross bars off. Trying to find a set of 18 in Bullet wheels.

Thanks! Ford Sonic Blue Metallic Pearl. It's a beautiful color but since I painted it about 7 years ago I see so many doing it now.

Couple more pictures. Still not done but driveable

Son changed his mind on the wheels. Doing some tweaks on it. Engine runs a little on the hot side with new three core radiator and 2 electric fans. Recurved the timing and advance and boosted the initial timing and engine came alive. Runs great now. Four wheel brakes work perfect. Took it to an exhaust shop to adjust the dual exhaust we bought from Jegs. Installed an electric trunk release. Put the new heater core in it. First road tests had no heater box and it got hot in the cabin.
