    Can't wait to see this SN95 finished. There are getting fewer and fewer on the road. Good to see a BAB getting restored.

    Bumpers and sideskirts are done being prepped. It shouldn't be too long before this car sees paint.

    Easily one of the best Mustang colors.

    I remember when you saved this car, and started the build.

    I had just bought my 98 cobra. I was about to start college (at 21). HG popped on my cobra months later, and your thread inspired me to build it.

    That was 20 cars (no joke) ago. As of today, I've been married for a year, held a bachelors for 5 years, owned a house for two years, and am talking kids.

    And here you are, still plugging away on this car. Good lawd. Good job brother.

    Why yes. Yes it is. Closer and closer. I need to get my butt into gear and get everything powdercoated.

    Thanks!

    Wow, time flies when you're having....fun? We just recently moved into a new house and partly the reason was for having a permanent place to store the BAB.

    Sorry for letting this thread get behind for updates fella's! Work has been slammed and we're just now done moving into the new house. Here's some pics of her in the booth for paint. You have no idea how excited I was at this point for being sooo close to having the BAB back.

    She is out of paint and she is BEAUTIFUL! Here she is after some polishing. She still needs a lot of wetsanding but it's a step in the right direction.

    Said it once and I'll say it again...best color in Mustang history. It's coming along nicely, I can't wait to see the finished product. You must be getting pumped.

    Sorry for the lack of updates, this past month has been hectic on my schedule. Took a few quick snaps before the car went under a cover. I should be making a few parts orders soon & we'll get the motor & trans back in the car. After that it'll be taken to the house where I can spend more time working on it.

    For the past month yes as my shop is too busy for it to be taking up a bay. It'll be coming home in the next few weeks where it will be stored inside permanently.
