    65 mustang kicks build log..PICS

    BEFORE I START I WANT TO SAY THAT I ENCOURAGE CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM AND WOULD LIKE TO KNOW WHAT I CAN DO TO BE BETTER.

    Well i was contacted by a local who had heard about some of the work i had been doing. It required very little and all i was really doing was hooking up systems. No fabrication no nothing. Pretty simple to me. So he calls me up and says he has a job for me. I said ok what is it? He made me come over to see for my self i get there and he has a few cars in the drive so i figure its gonna be one of them... Takes me into the garage and shows me a 65 mustang that hes redoing. He told me what he wanted done and i said well im not sure if i can do all this fabrication, false floor in the trunk, all out new kicks with speaker mounts added, put a radio in a glove box that didnt exist. I am about half way done with the car now. I have the trunk completly done, which was a first time carpeting for me and i think it came out fantastically and so does he. So onto the kicks. I got the kicks from his car which were first of all HUGE and second of all torn to ****. so i came on line and started learning.
    Heres what i recieved.






    Here is the tape i used (2 Layers i had issues with the tape later on )



    Here is after 3 coats of resin and matt ( i later learned i was using the ****** matt and added a layer of random stranded matt)



    Here is after sanding and cutting (ROUGHLY) the new kicks.







    I still have to finish sanding, fleece it, build the speaker mounts, add body filler, sand my *** off, prep for paint and then paint. All which will be done tomarrow hopefully.

    I just want to make sure no one thinks this is a finished product. I would say i am almost half way done. I still have a good half hour of sanding on both and cleaning up the edges where my cutting was bad.
    If any one wants to see the trunk ill post that too..... THATS MY FAVORITE PART partly cause its done and i know what it looks like

    Re: 65 mustang kicks build log..PICS

    Better ensure those kick panels are fully 'glassed. 65-66 Mustangs are notorius for leaking cowls and leaking around the rear windows. The cowls weren't painted and thus rust out. When it rains it will leak into the floor boards. To check this pull up the carpet and pour a buck of water down the cowl. If it leaks, it may cause the kick panels to prematurely mess up due to water damage. If your cowl is bad enough and it rains hard you will put your feet in 1-2" of water the next morning.
