Jan 31, 2012 update to the Shelby GT 350 project car

Shelby Mustang on the Mend

Mounting the grill shell was easy. We had Tom Prescott on hand to help us get everything aligned.
Having all the body panels back on the car felt great, but not as great as our first test drive would feel.

At this point, the car is essentially done. We just need to get the front end aligned and take it for its first post-op test drive.

With the mechanical work done, it was time to reinstall the nose of the Shelby GT 350. We purposely left it off until we had everything done under the hood.

We powder-coated the headlight buckets and the grille before installing new headlights. The rest of the nose and front bumper were not even cleaned, never mind restored. We asked our bodywork ace, Tom Prescott, to help us align the hood and front fenders. That step was easy for him.

At this point, the car is essentially done. We just need to get the front end aligned and take it for its first post-op test drive.
