We’re sand-blasting the metal components from Dave’s under-dash, especially his heater-A/C box. Then, we laid out all the parts in our paint booth, and will be priming them as soon as we get some of Cathy’s parts together in order to work with larger batches of parts.
We’ve started doing some minor fiberglass repairs to Dave’s Heater and A/C box. The boxes in the 1967 Mustang models and onward had a box that contained both the heater core and the A/C unit. There are a few cracks and damages to the box, as is very common in Mustangs, but that requires just a little fiberglassing and then it should be in great shape again.
Here we are beginning the restoration of the interior of Dave’s convertible Mustang, beginning with the heater box. We’ve begun the careful disassembly of the heater box and the restoration of the individual components.
Here we are going extensive work on the heater box, taillights, and light bezels. The heater boxes in these old Mustangs, we’ve found, are often damaged and worn heavily, so we had to do quite a bit of fiberglassing and parts replacement. The taillights and bezels just needed some re-freshening, as they were in great shape.
Here we are working to restore the interior components of Tom’s Mustang, including his heater box, glove box, dash bezel and instrument pad. It is very detailed work, but we’re very detail-oriented, and we know we can do a great job!
Here’s Mitchell taking the interior of Biff’s Shelby apart. He’s working on the heater box, the interior panel trims and the headliner, and we’re still finding tons of good, original parts that we will definitely re-used.
