Project Mustang is a complete guide to restoring America's favorite muscle car, written by auto-restoration guru Larry Lyles, a regular contributor to Auto Restorer magazine. In this detailed, 23-chapter volume, Lyles walks the car owner from the beginning--the in-depth inspection of the vehicle and the beginning of the teardown--to the end--recovering the seats and replacing the frame rail. The car restored for the project in the book is a 1968 California Special Mustang. The chapter titles themselves speak to what a straightforward, DIY manual Lyles has written, as he details the step-by-step procedure of bringing a stunning, vintage rod back to life: *Beginning the teardown: exterior and interior *Repairing the sheet metal, door, and deck *Removing the major parts (driveshaft, engine, transmission, front suspension, steering system, etc.) *Removing old paint and replacing rusty floors *No-weld rust repair *Perfecting the metal *Working with plastic body filler *Priming and sanding *Refinishing the components, the underside, the door, interior, trunk, and body; Wiring the car and installing the doors *Applying the coatings, rebuilding the suspension, and installing the brake lines *Installing the vinyl top cover, the headliner, and the glass *Rebuilding and installing the engine; Installing the front sheet metal, emblems, bumpers, stripes,
