I think the car is looking really nice . I'm a Ford guy and would have went with a Ford engine just in case i wanted to sell it . But i think the engine you are going with is cool . Kind of reminds of the 50s and 60s when we changed motors from one make to another all the time .
Your boy looks like a good kid in the pictures and i'm sure he will be just fine .
Nice project, and very nice work.....you guys should be real proud!
As far as the Toyota engine.... I think it's pretty cool, that's thinking 'outside the box'!
Keep up the good work, and look forward to updates,

Oh and you didn't rain on my parade, we are moving forward with all plans... again, I do appreciate you sharing your perspective.
Thanks Len, the Tekna gun worked great. Appreciate all your support, and the support of this site.
Color takes me back to a neighborhood buddy who bought one of the first 289 Fastbacks in that color with black interior. I still see his car in my mind anytime I read something on older Mustangs.
You guys are doing a fantastic job and your photo documentation is great and so important. Glad you're sharing you build on this site so we all can follow and the advice and products you need are available here as well. Can't wait to see more going forward. Now you can say It Will Be Done THIS Year. Henry
Henry, Mooch, Jaak, thanks for the positive comments.
Len, thanks for all the advice and good products over the last 2-3 years. We are on the final stretch of this thing, will be painting it soon, then onto final assembly.
Here is a video from last night, with the motor going back for hopefully the last time...
On the final stages of bodywork in prep for paint.
We decided to install 64 thunderbird (shelby style) tail lights in the 65.
Here are 3 videos where we captured our progress.
You guys are doing great work! Cant wait for the picture heavy final results!
We put the car in final prime over the weekend... a few pics.
Got our paint booth completed and started painting the jambs last night.
Painting looks good, I donít have anything to add to that but let me make a suggestion on your fan. I would place the filter box on the inside so the fan motor runs in clean air. A few days like you did today probably wonít hurt it but after a while paint will build up inside the motor. The motor is cooled by letting some of the air flow go past and near the windings and some paint is going to build up in there every time you spray. Another thing is if your filters plug up you wonít be able to see it if they are outside the shop. You are using good filters but that isnít going to work in your favor. They plug up faster. I switched to those green fiber filters you can get at Home Depot, 5 for $6.00 or something like that. They look like they wonít do a good job because you can almost see through them but they do catch an amazing amount of paint. I never use them twice. They are too cheap to take a chance on plugging up. I just use two on a large furnace squire cage fan. You will be able to see just how well they work by examining a filter after use. There is a coat of paint on the outside surface and most of the internal mesh is still clean after use.
