    I should, the panel is not tight to the body it is just loosely clamped in place, I am going to drill a few holes in the panel & screw it in & if I need to I can move it forward if I have to or I can trim it a little shorter.

      It's really coming along nicely!

      I'll echo Ryan's sentiments, Mike- so cool to see your passion project save a Mustang from the brink of death.

        I think if you have around a 1/4 of lip you should be fine. Your panel will definitely be a lot better than the junk that's available, that's for sure.

        • Today I covered both of the custom sail panels I made for the Coupe with black vinyl & installed the 69/70 Fastback interior lights.



          I also made a new rear package tray from a template a member on another forum kindly provided me.

          • That interior sail trim looks great, I wish I would have done that on my Mach. I think yours will look more 'right' than mine does, mine looks a bit droopy.

              Thanks Steve. Yesterday I covered the package tray (I made) with black vinyl & installed it to see how it would look with the custom sail panels I made for the Coupe.

              • Today was a rainy day & I could not get anything done outside so I spent a couple hours in the garage & installed the rear seat, rear quarter interior trim panels, & the package tray I made to see how they would look with the custom sail panel I made.

                  • I like the sail panels. When I put the headliner in my Maverick, that was one of the harder parts to get to fit right. Much better with it being a separate piece.

                    • Thanks guys I like the way they came out. Today I did a test fit of the trunk divider panel. I am going to bolt it in instaed of using the sheet metal screws they provided.

                          Mike,
                          What exactly do the panels do? Are they just doubling up the stiffness of the floorboard or do they have nuts welded onto the back side of them?

                          • Ryan,
                            They double up the floor pan where the dual exhaust hangers bolt through the floor so they do not tear through the sheet metal. In the middle of the panel there are 2 larger holes & 1 small hole in the middle the hanger brackets go through those 2 larger holes & the smaller hole is for a screw to hold the brackets in place. ( see attached link) The muffler hangers would then bolt to these brackets & the exhaust.
