I'm reasonably sure that auto's are made of a different quality of steel than the mild steel that you are using. It is going to be VERY heavy.

Quick question bro. Why couldn't you use a round tube for the frame, instead of the box tube?.....and another point I just thought of, get with a carpenter on the angle/miter joints you make, if you do it with their direction, the cuts will join together perfectly. I'm soooo not bein critical. Just tossin the ideas up. Rock on.

Love this build. The idea of a new Mustang under the old body is great. The build might be more costly but your car will be unique! Keep up the good work. Keep it as original as possible.

That steel is at least twice an thick as it needs to be. 1.6mm is factory, 3mm would be plenty strong, that is like 8mm thick!
Same with the frame rails. 75x50x1.6mm would be ample. That stuff is 5mm thick! Woukd make a good gooseneck trailer

Don't let the book smart people slow you down, you need to learn and the only way to learn is the way you're doing it, next time you want want to put the seams on your frame rails on the inside, be sure you're following asme guidelines for your material, Also to cut steel you can use a C 5 carbide blade Harbor Freight 20 bucks put it on a Milwaukee 18-volt cordless skil saw and it will cut easier and faster than all those other saws you're using especially that death wheel

The subframe was designed to hold the engine and work with the suspension why build a custom subframe? Wouldnt correct suspension & subframe mounting (to the chassis) keep it from scraping like in the 2015?

I am super excited for this build! This is the kind of restomod that gets my blood pumping! I am curious how you will handle the front and rear glass with widening the body of the car though. Can you have custom windshield and rear glass made for a 1966 Mustang? Anyway, keep up the excellent work and I look forward to all your videos.

I imagine the original 'stang would have been build little like the same -we'll throw that in there and see... like the confidence👍
Jerry Giannopoulos
Jerry Giannopoulos - 7 måneder siden
Out of curiosity. Do you realize what you did when you cut the car in half? It’s hard enough to find glass for those cars. But now you have to have custom glass made. You just drove up the pricier build by a ton. Front windshield are to be laminate safety glass and rear windows are to be made with tempered glass for safety when they shatter.

You have competition on B is for build. You should both finish about the same time. Might consider making it into a fastback.

First of all, when I've seen how you were chopping the old mustang into pieces I thought "What a butcher, he ain't going to get that driving again!" But now, when it comes back together I think "What an artist!" It seems to be so easy for you.... I would never make something like that subframe myself. Especially without a drawing! Can't wait to see the rest of the build! Keep up, awesome work!

In my 'Teens, my next door neighbor brought home a rusty ford 32 coupe body and '32 frame rails. I helped him build a rolling chassis and chop the top. Neighbor moved, but came back 2 years later and treated me to a ride in his candy brandy wine 32 coupe.
That frame straightener is a perfect platform for building that frame. But it still boggles my mind how you are going to duplicate all the proper geometry for the front end. Steering, caster, camber, ride height, suspension travel. Skills pay the Bills. Enjoying the Vids. Thanks

This car is going to weigh like... 5 tons by the time he's done with it. Are you building a tank? Or is the idea to build a sports-car that will be able to exceed 60 miles an hour. Also, you screwed up the bearings of this motor by lifting the entire engine and gearbox with just the crankshaft. Insane!! Hilarious to watch, but please get somebody to help you, with safety etc. You're going to hurt yourself.

You need to work on editing. You would be better off leaving the music play and just lowering it when you are talking. Having it pop on and off can get annoying. Overall great channel. You are so extremely talented for your age. Your skill will only grow more over time!

Although you are very talented, this car gonna be a death trap with the custom frame. Car frames are designed to absorb energy from impact and to reduce that energy for the people in the car. With this frame you lose all that! Would been better if you seek advice from specialists on what to use to build the custom frame.
Also get guard for the grinder, ive seen injury from it and trust me aint pretty when it happens. All the best!

I thought the art of fabrication was lost, not so, this guy has no limits. Fab-shops these days want to put stuff together like a Canadian tire BBQ, or an IKEA shelf.
That's not fabricating, this is :D

The concept is pretty cool. Still a lot to learn. First some safety stuff. Then some design stuff. To think of all the time I wasted building chassis jigs. Obviously Suspension layout is not to important. There are way more cost effective materials to use than heavy steel while doing layout. First bet. Will it look as good close up as it does from 50 ft. Second bets on dog tracks left or right? But you know what? you will learn a lot from this build. Keep at it. Keep on the learning curve. I was taught from the ground up. I found it more productive to only make mistakes once. 40 years later I still get to build top shelf cars. Keep living your dreams.

Ok love the build but man the car is going to weigh 4000 pounds the way you are building it. I would cut and dimple lighting holes if you are set on using that heavy of box tube. You definitely need to aim for a sema build. I think if it were me I would buy a 2015 floor pan set vs custom making, the the interior would fit.
Joseph Chambers
Joseph Chambers - 7 måneder siden
@vTuned garage ok maybe not 4000 but performance is often more about weight than power also dimpled holes would also simply look cool. One thing I would pull the top in towards the back, it will allow factory rear glass and the wide hips would be killer.

Nice build, those new frame rails look massively thick: I am guessing 3/16 inch wall? Hope you going to do some lightening holes otherwise that some serious weight on the front end.
