In this episode of Burd's Garage, we introduce you to our new 1965 Ford Mustang fastback project car and start prepping the car for removing and replacing all the rusty sheet metal. We first rebuild the door hinges and align the doors to the quarter panels, then show how to replace a trunk floor section and drop off with an entire trunk floor out of another donor car! This makes it easier for the viewer to see all the processes involved to give you some guidance to tackle the job yourself on your own project. Finally, we give some tips on bumping out damaged panels by crease in a hood edge and also filling holes with the MIG welder.


Looks like you got your work cut out for you although the rust isn’t as bad as some stuff I see, will be really nice when finished!
