Hi JT,

Excellent work!

Your attention to detail is amazing.

You are really addressing every aspect of this restoration.

Long time, no posts in this thread. Photobucket has really screwed forums. I've written them off as well as all the older photos that I had saved there (I still have the originals on my PC). Anyway, just thought I'd share the latest pics of the 82. Still picking away at my to-do list. This past weekend I pulled it out of the garage for spring clean up.

A few after the sun set:

As my cousins used to say, "choice load." That is one beautiful GT.

Thank you


So the good news is that PB reactivated the old photo links so this thread is alive (for now). Also, I've been chipping away at my to-do list on the 82. Installed the sun visors:


Next up was the radio. Someone hacked the dash:

But the harness was in tact. I had in my stash an AM/FM radio from an early Aero car. So I used it with a custom / modified dash bezel:

Using a factory radio allows me to also use use factory connectors. I only needed to add a constant power and ground connection to get this radio to work.

Then I finished installing the rest of the dash (pad and gauge bezel)



I need to refinish the steering wheel spokes and get the center cover back on.

Still chipping away at some of the smaller projects. Since this car has the rear wiper option, it uses a cover under the hatch to hide the wiper mechanism. Tonight was clean / scuff / paint this cover:



Also cleaned up and painted the lug wrench (Ford engine gray paint)
