Here's the servo and master cylinder in place.
Master cylinder not connected up yet but bench bled first



Scuttle painted satin black



Oh, as some have no doubt noticed the colour combination!! Red and green!

Just to remind any old 'uns and any new 'uns....the chassis was powder coated red because the car was going to be red. Then things changed, and I decided I wanted the car a pearl green. But it was too late by then to change the red, because the engine, suspension, fuel tank etc had already been painted!
The plan is to get this car together, painted and driven, then next winter, remove the body again and repaint the cahssis and running gear.

Here's a good shot of how far the chassis has gone up into the car, This is the back left corner. The frame leg used to be below the bodywork, now its well tucked up there!

the whole car has been channeled far enough to sit the rockers on the floor on airbags. In this shot, it may give an idea as to how low it will be. The coil spring is in temporarily and the car is on the top of railway sleepers, but is a good shot

The car will go down a heck of a lot more.

Still cheering you on!

I still have my 92. I'm considering putting collector plates on it now, then park it beside my neighbour's classic corvette!

Still, I want to get collector plates so I can enjoy driving it once in awhile.

Wow, is it over a year since Ive posted on here!
Is photobucket back up now for us free riders??
Anyway, the wagon is still being built.
Rear air suspension is in and front rad panel removed for chassis leg Z'ing to lower front of frame down to match windscreen cowl height. Then I can fit the fenders and hood (needs cutting though) and drive it to my bigger workshop to get it complete.



More updates soon.
Andy.

Good to see you back Andy. Was wondering how the wagon project was coming along.

Still cheering you on Andy...

I sold my 92 a couple of days ago, but I'll still come by to check yours out.

Decided to transport the wagon to my big workshop and continue the build there.
Here it is temporarily put back together waiting for its recovery vehicle.

Rear bumper next...…
Its too long, sticks out way too far and I can't use the original chassis mounts because the frame is buried further up into the body.
So, strip the bumper of all its plastic, shorten it by 7cm and try it for fit. Then tig weld up.

This centre section to be removed

Cant go back now..


Clamped together


Looks a lot better on the car now. Further in and tucked in at the sides.

TIG welding next.

Andy.

Progress! This is going to be a beautiful car when it's done.

It always bothered me that Ford didn't tuck the rear bumper on the wagons. That looks a hell of a lot better.

Holy crap! Andy is back!! Long time no see. I've followed this build since even before I was here on CVN. Certainly one of the most intense builds I've seen on a Panther.
