Have you ever seen a classic Mustang VIN number that had a numeric engine code? Me either! Myself and a few other knowledgeable people would instantly say that it’s incorrect or had been stamped incorrectly at some point; but its true…
Is your body shop competent and professional, do they take pride in doing their work correctly? Maybe you’ve purchased a Mustang that has been painted recently and it looks great, but was it done correctly?
Are you about to take your project to a body shop? Maybe you project is already at the body shop and hopefully your not reading this because you feel that your car may be heading for paint shop prison.
My 1967 Mustang Coupe has been through two paint and body shops over the past six months and the results have been disappointing and at times had me feeling like my car was in prison or could be held hostage.
Is you Jeep making a humming noise from the front end while you are driving down the highway? If so you may have a wheel bearing that is going bad and it should be replaced as soon as possible.

When it comes to a good Mustang restoration there are some equipment needs that most enthusiast doing their own work never really consider.

Its been a couple of weeks since I began working on this 1967 Ford Mustang and its finally off to the paint shop.
If you read one of my earlier posts then you know that I didn’t have much in the way of tools to do a restoration project; well that has changed. I started searching for tools last week to begin expanding my collection, the first thing on my list was a tool box. I found a nice tool box on closeout at Sears and it should hold most of the tools that I will need to do the job.
