'66 Mustang Custom.
Posted 16 July 2012 - 06:37 PM
So I figured I'd go a little more custom than just paint...
Anyway - here:
Shelby GT 350 Motor.
R34 GTR Skyline wheels painted black.
Disc brakes front and rear.
Modern Bucket seats in the classic interior - made slightly modern by colouring.
That's it so far - now progress pics:
After laying paint on the body.
Shaved the locks, handles, etc.
Shelby hood and grille.
Pretty much how the R34 wheels sit on the Mustang - now they're gloss black with disc brakes behind them.
No steering detail due to the fact I had to cut up the front end to get it this low.
So she's engine bay, exterior and interior detail only.
Worth it though - she's one of my Dream cars - and I'm building her how I'd like her to look. (yes.. the '34 GTR wheels I want on a Mustang..)
More pics to come.

Interior now, it's Semi Gloss black for all the leather/vinyl.
It has Metal grey trim in the sides as well as the bucket seats - but it doesn't stand out enough in photos.
The Bucket seats are R34 GTR seats, Matte Black to simulate Fabric.
My gauges - Shelby spec.
The donk - thinking about wiring it up - I'd like to give it a shot.
So we'll see.

Sticking with my Satin Silver look with the gloss wheels.
Engine and interior are in - but I buggered up the RHD rear Shelby window - good thing all the mistakes are on the right hand side - because she's a Left hand display model anyway.
Pics soon - just gotta shoot the front and rear panels as well as the hood, put some wiring in the engine bay and we're all good for a display model.
Right now - I gotta mow the lawn.

So - the wheels are on, engine and interior are in, front and back are done, just gotta finish the under side detail (making a low profile K-Frame for it so it doesn't look retarded.
Basically she's pretty much done, just needs final engine details, wiring and cables, etc - gotta get some super fine wire for all of that - going to make a whole loom then just glue it in.
Waiting for engine bay goodies.
How's that for rake?
Disc brakes, gloss black wheels, and bog stock body. :-D
Gauges are painted. :-D
loooooooooowwww - everything is tucked up and the engine has been raised by 2mm on the engine mounts so the GT350 sump clears the ground with a K-frame (soon to be) under it.
Gotta add parkers and indicators to her.
Then she's done.
Hope you guys like it, she's not perfect - but I made some sacrifices to get her where she is.
Yes, that is a '69 GTX that is being shaved and smoothed out.
And yes - that is the beginnings of a full custom sub frame to get her to sit about 4-5 mm off the ground.
Pro Touring baby. With some deeeeeep dish.

The rear wheels are cut up so they fit over the rear leaf springs - which are mounted in the stock position, but have the ends cut off so they sit lower.. which is still pretty high - lol.
I'll grab one for you anyway.
In the mean time while I wait for stuff to appear from no where to wire up the engine bay - I've started work on my '69 Pro touring GTX.
