My 66 mustang restoration

I've had this car since 93 and she's done me well. Now I'm trying to do the same.

The biggest challenge is replacing the entire cowl which had rotted, we then discovered the firewall flange was shot too so I am fabricating one from sheet metal.

Some thick ass carpet going in and new seatbelts, we considered going to 3 point but the options are clunky and she'll be a weekend warrior at best.

I’ve put about $600 in sound dampening in the car including the dynamat style noico resonance damper, foam noise and heat barriers and mass vinyl.

Fun fact: my trunk carpet is the same material used in x3/x4 wheel arches. My former employer made them and we had a roll of pp carpet that had no center core and couldn’t be loaded in the press so I was able to take some for the project.

C code. Pretty much bone stock except electronic ignition, dual exhaust.

I might put a sniper Efi on. Got to get everything else done first.

The cowl area was always prone to extensive rust. The bane of my existence. GL with your build.

Yeah, ours was bad in the corners, which rotted into the passenger compartment and backwards into the engine bay. I bought some cowl delete plates from mustangs to fear and will close and blend the center 4, leaving only the far left and right open. It wont change the shit design but will lower the chance of debris collecting inside and clogging the drains. This new cowl is weld thru primered too so its not unprotected like the factory.

Same, I am super excited for this project. I am sure this Mustang will be gorgeous when this project will be finished.
