looking like a good start... did you remove the vinyl roof? i recon that would be pretty scary removing it... you'd have no idea of the damage until you remove it...

so whats the plans? leaving the fairmont front... going whole respray i guess... love the 12 slotters with the blod white writing...

They look good when done up, but being minus a drivetrain with some serious rust... its not gunna be cheap!

Good luck with your project, good to see the old fords getting a second chance. This is a xc fairmont I built in the early '90s. 450hp 351, toploader & 9in

It was kelly green with a cream vinyl roof.
