Just the Details...1966 Shelby Restoration 6S033

It's been a while since we have posted about the progress on our '66 GT350 Shelby Mustang project.  Jeremy at Maple Hill Restoration has now completed the body work on the underside, trunk area and front suspension/engine compartment area, and these areas are now in primer.

As shown in a few of the pictures below, all of the sheet metal date stamping were covered with 3M Soft Edge Foam Masking Tape to prevent excessive filling of the stamping by the primer.

All of these areas will now be sanded again (whew!) before the final finishes are applied...lots of work to go, but we are glad to be this far along.

All the dents have been repaired and the 1966 Shelby GT350 Mustang in primer
