 photo DSC_3852640x425.jpgThis is just after I started .I am sure I took pics of before I started but cant find them. I bought a junk body from Dennis when he was clearing his last inventory. I think somebody had an idea to make a coupe but had really done a haacke job with what looked like a hot knife (remember those?). I completely cut all that away an started with the rear deck and fender tops from a 66 coupe that had a severly warped body and that I had already cut the roof off for a different project. The spoiler is from a different Mustang II fastback and the roof is from the IMC/Testors Mustang II show car.I eventually had to narrow the roof to fit right

WOW!  Nice work, I love the flow from the roof line into the spoiler.
