    Subbing to see the progress of this.

    I was just thinking the other day it's quite rare to see a Fox on the road nowadays. Pretty sad to think about actually. Nice to see one being saved.

    Oh wow, that is interesting. It's been about a month in a half since I last saw a Foxbody on the road. It's starting to become difficult to find any V8 New Edges on the road (still plenty of V6'ers though).

    ^^YES! Who would have "thunk" it? Foxes were EVERYWHERE in the 80's/90's. I now am shocked when I see one in the wild and it is usually in rough condition.

    This is awesome. What motivated you to save it? How did you learn to do this type of repair?

    I've been doing body and paint as a hobby for years 19 years now.. it helps that I know the fox chassis like the back of my hand.

    Finish a couple of welds and start bodywork and paint and then the reassembly begins.

    Any big plans for the paint or are you going to stick with the factory black?

    Definitely black.. I might pick a blacker black.. you'd be surprised how many shades of black there are, Mercedes or Harley Davidson are true blacks tints
