Hi,

I am looking for either books or web sites that detail the sheet metal assembly on the early model mustang coupes. Ive got a 66 coupe that needs major reconstruction surgury... New fenders and quarters (inside and out), new floors, front frame rails and possibly the rear deck lid. Its a big project... but I dont care, its got potential.

Only 70k original miles and it ran when I bought it. heh heh, the $600 pricetag over 6 months didnt hurt. If anyone has any suggestions, please let me know.

Yes, the Jim Osborn manuals are outstanding.
I have the full set of five manuals and use them all the time. You can't go wrong with them.

Hello,While we are on the topic,I was wondering if you could tell me whether the body manual has measurements(i.e. distance between frame rails,etc.)I was thinking of ordering that one,but if it is just exploded diagrams it's not what I'm looking for,Thanks.

I don't believe it does. You'll need the Ford shop manuals for that.
