I have some Marchal lights to refurbish to go with the new CS grill. I also bought new quarter windows due to condition of the old frames. All the interior parts are done & ready for installation. I have not decided whether or not to install a new TMI one piece headliner or dye the original headliner.
All I can do now is wait...

Hey Neil car is looking great! where did you find a new CS grill?

The grill came from a fellow Mustanger in Oklahoma.

I exercised my visitation rights today: bodywork done, extraneous parts are progressing nicely. Decided to keep the CS's original Sunlit Gold exterior.

Good grief. I just went back and reviewed the posts on this car, and can't believe I've had it for 3 years+.
It will be Sunlit Gold (original color) with Deluxe Nugget Gold interior, Black CS striping, and perhaps Black hood stripe.
I've already got a TON of new parts waiting for the car to come out of the paint shop: all new suspension (front & rear), interior, upgraded A/C, console. And possibly Shelby wheels.
I'll check compression & oil pressure to determine engine status, but I'll have to pull it out anyway to clean/detail the engine & engine bay.
