Super nice job.  If I was a Mustang Club of America or SAAC concours judge I might take off for the missing paint marks on the leaf springs.  😉  In all seriousness this is a fantastic replica stock build.

Is the "SFMxxxx" VIN decal included in the kit or was it with the Marks set? It's a really nice touch!

On Fotki Keith’s decal sheet it shows that decal.  I’ve never seen one in a kit.

Cool! Me likey. Adds a lot to the already amazing build.

Non-Mustang folks are saying, "What?" LOL.

Also really liking the "dipped" front lower control arms and the aluminum bellhousing with the cast iron transmission case.

Wow, thanks for all the nice comments!  Yes, the vin plate decal is from the Kieth Marks set.  Also, the windshield washer bag was adorned with a colored pencil and label made from a picture of the actual bag, otherwise it would be just a black plastic blob.

Thanks, and it is close to the correct blue on the ps pump but not quite.  It should be a bit bluer and metallic.  I used a Pontiac engine color.  It is the closest thing I had at the time.  I also forgot to mention that I sanded off the molded hood pin wire and replaced it with fine metal wire which I glued to the underside of the hood.  Not functional, but looks the part with the hood closed.

Stunning, nicest GT-350 build I've seen. On target for all the wonderful detailing, sure looks like a show-winner

Thanks, that may be true if we ever have shows again....😉
