    Troy Trepainer (sp?) built an eBay Mustang several years back. That was the first time I had seen that kind of treatment to the tail lights and I thought it was pretty cool. When I get back into my 68 (if I ever get my house done), that is on my list of mods.

      We decided to install a roll bar and I bought a kit from S & W for a 1968 Mustang

        We wanted to do something different so we cut about 1" off the end caps and spoiler.





        As you can see in this photo the bumper needs to be narrowed



        I cut the center out of the bumper and lined up both ends with the end caps.

          I will have to add fiberglass to get a tight gap



          Bumper fits better now but still needs a lot of work to look right



          The gap was larger in the middle so I added fiberglass

            We also added fiberglass to the bottom of the bumper

              it`s nice to be important but it is more important to be nice.

                  The end caps were bolted and bonded to the quarter panel



                  I also added a little fiberglass



                  Bodywork ruffed in



                  We now have a nice tight gap around the rear bumper

                    Epoxy primed





                    Next step is to finish the bodywork on the taillight panel and rear valance

                      Quarter scoops were bolted and bonded with 3m8115 panel adhesive.



                      Major bodywork finished on the rear of the body yesterday
