1973 Mustang – Project SportsRoof – Front Valance and Old Fenders

Thanks for check back with #ProjectSportsRoof.  While I’m headed off on vacation I’ve scheduled a few post to get published while I’m out.

As a note the progress is moving well and I’m posting these in order, but they are delayed by a couple of weeks.  I’ve nearly completed the fender install – still have a few adjustments to make and you’ll see these posts coming up.  Taking advantage of various opportunity in the course of a project some times has you stop on task so to take an opening to get another task done.  This is the case here with the 351C engine.  I had a chance to get the some engine work done at a great price so I’ve jumped to that task and put the others on hold. Those post will be coming up soon.

To remove the fenders you, of course have to pull off the front valance.  This one happened to be a new after-market piece.


When you swapping out any original parts or components, you want to try to salvage any sub-components or parts that are still functional and look good.  Stripping these old fenders included saving the fender extensions, side makers, bolts, badging etc.

When I’ve capturing these on my Android, I trying to keep them short and often use the wrong name for some of the parts, hence Fender Ends = Fender Extensions.



Here is a look at the fender extensions.

If you’ve seen any of my other project you’ll notice that I try to keep things – organized – some what.


There’s more coming up on the fenders and the cause of the low compression on cylinder #2 – it’s not what I thought!!!


Thanks for reading.
