Hey All,Well I finally got the rest of the drive train out the other nite.Last nite started stripping the interior out.This Lil' Pony looks sad to say the least!
Now for the fun stuff.The previous owner sprayed rubberized undercoating on EVERYTHING but the engine(Must have ran out of undercoating!!)Brakelines,linkages,wiring
well I guess that won't rust Man is this going to be fun to strip off.My "Fun
Meter"just pegged the scale!Have to say think it will look much better when finished.Hope all is going well for all.

Hey "Desertrat",
Ain't it FUN??? It's always a "treat" to find out the hidden surprises that a previous owner did to these classics. I know, I've run into some doosies on my'73, and have ranted on here on more than one occasion (like a certain trans problem!!!!)

Where are my manners? Welcome to M&M Desertrat

Sounds like quite a project
What year is your car? Not a '60 Mustang, is it?
