A recent bad turn put our friend Jeremy and his Wife in harms way this past weekend. A very serious automobile and motorcycle accident left the both of them badly injured in life changing ways.

As a  result the fastback was picked up today and brought it back to base camp. Wishing a quick recovery for Jeremy in this new chapter in their life.

July 2016 Progress

A few pics of the latest progress from the body shop:

More smoothing of the exterior a super long process prepping for black paint.

A cleaning up of the rear inner fender mods. The rear inner wells have been moved inboard all the way the the frame, the micro tub has been opened up and smoothed with larger patch panels. The front inner side of these wells from the factory are very limiting. Will be fun to see what size of tire we can actually fit!

A new radiator core support has made it's on the nose. Next it will be modded with a wider opening to allow for more airflow for the aftermarket three core fox style radiator. This will help keep things cool in the New Mexico heat. We have experienced a number of weeks now at over 100 degree temps this summer in the land of enchantment.

November 2015 Progress

Some more bump & grind over at Superior Customs. At times it is unbelievable how little body damage there is on this old steed.

Project Updates August 2015

The project is moving forward. This stage the radiator core support removed for modification. The undercarriage will get some clean up love. The 2" widening of the rear inner fender wells. The front valance gains a license plate delete with a custom metal mod to improve airflow to the larger aftermarket radiator. Shaved rockers and emblem holes.

The 8.8 rear rebuild was performed by Dixon Racing.  A complete late model 5 lug swap, jig welded axle tubes 3:73 gears & disc brake hardware. Ford Racing differential cover.

The new test rims

So the first test rims for the rear of the car have been acquired. 10.5 X17 FR500 style wheels are what will be used for the testing rear wheel spacing and install of the late model disc equipped 8.8 rear.

Nearly Naked

The crew over at the body shop has put the sanders to work! Nearly stripped of all the paint the raw body is in clear site now. The shape of the panels is surprisingly good.

Removal of the stock paint continues

The crew at Superior Customs continues in the process of removing the factory paint from the chassis. Once the paint is removed then the crew will focus on prepping the engine bay, door jams and trunk area for paint. * shot by Carlos Montoya.

To the body shop!

Phase two, the forgotten fastback makes it's way inside superior customs where Jeremy, Gary & crew with go a round on the chassis. In this phase the paint will be removed to bare metal, rear wheel-well mods will be finished, lips curled and trimmed, custom front gravel pan mods done, panel alignment, jams trunk and engine may painted, the rest of the fine body work will be done and the chassis will roll out in primer sealer for power-train and suspension build.
