Wheel arch moldings

Anyone got close up photos of the ends of the moldings and how well the conform to the fender? Have a set of repros and they seem to be a bit off...

Good luck with those repros.

Tim I did not know you were restoring one of your cars tell us more. From what I can see the Highland green looks great!

Marty, the paint was good for awhile, but had a horrible clear coat that came off in sheets. My son, TJ took it upon himself to completely gut the car, have it painted, then install all new interior, outer chrome and lots of other misc... We're still putting it back together, but couldn't resist the "urge for 390 surge" in the process ;-)

Indeed, lots of "Mustang busy" here of late among other things....>

Cool

Tim,

I thought that the white w/red stripe CS was gone. What happened?

...The guy arrived here, then his truck w/ trailer broke down. We spent the entire Saturday finding a mech, having it towed then running him to Auburn and the closest rental car... He returned on Monday (while I was at work), grabbed his trailer and went back to Redding.... Not a word since...

The whole thing was weird, because he didn't really even look at the car (or want to drive it), but his friend loved it! ....Kept talking about his '55 "whatever" instead. Rather strange waste of a day....
