Right on Sean, another great metal work, mustang restoration video!
Did the firewall spot welds just fall apart with the air hammer?
You said the words pretty sure all of the rust repair will be done.
I guess the cowl is ok inside? Usually its in the same condition as old floors.
Don't remember you mentioning that in the vids.. Just curious.

Its looking good, so onto shell prep and paint?
Just chomping at the bit for the next vid.:D:p

Yeah, it was so frail that the welds basically just fell apart. Easier for me! Inside the cowl is actually perfect, save for some debris that I’m having a heck of a time getting all out. Just a few leaves but no rust.

Next is finishing up dressing some welds, closing up all the holes in the drip rails (former vinyl top) and then epoxy sealer/primer.

I picked up a ton of parts this week so should be set for a few videos! Thanks again for watching and all your encouragement.

STROKER CRANK!
I'm just saying.

Did you do both sides the trunk floor (top and bottom) with the home-brew lizard skin?
Looking forward to seeing it all in epoxy primer. Such a great milestone.
