Just the Details...1966 Shelby Mustang GT350 Restoration 6S033

It's been a while since we have posted about our 1966 Carryover GT350 Shelby (SFM6S033) restoration. Other projects have been in the way, but Jeremy at Maple Hill Restoration has been back on it over the past few weeks.  The recent concentration has been with the outside body and fitment of all panels.  Our last post showed pictures of the basically finished underside.

A "paint job" is much more than the final color paint.  A high end result requires hours of preparation...non-exciting stuff that you sort of can't see, but it makes that final actual "paint job" look really nice.  In these pictures you will see that Jeremy has applied a primer.  The black color on the body that is shown in the lower pictures is used as a "guide" in order for Jeremy to determine the low and high spots and keep the sanding "in line".  Speaking of sanding, various grits of sandpaper are used as the body and panels are worked and worked until everything is completely straight!  Lots of work, but we can't wait to see the final results.

This is number 33 of the 252 Carryover GT350s built in 1966.  For more information about these unique Shelbys, visit www.CarryoverGT350.com .
