    It looks like your car has had some really bad repairs some time in it's life too. It looks like there is fiberglass in that cut away hole on the LH upper quarter.

    Nice work! I couldn't leave the bare sheet metal like that around here. It would be pot rusting within days. That looks like a pretty cool 69 or 70 Fast back Mustang up on the lift.
