So my wife got her a 2007 mustang and she is all about it.
She got this car from a even even swap for her older 2004 f-150 that had 350,000+ miles on it.
The prev. owner had some passanger side damage to the door and panel right in front of the rear wheel.
Got a door from a junk yard and goingto get a shop to do the fixing on the panel.
Recently a young'n backed up into her at the local school and jacked up the driverside headlight, hood and fender.
So we worked with the kids parents and they paid for the repairs ves going through insurence.
I ordered a new fender, cool aftermarket headlights that she picked out.

yeasterday i got up and finished out all the sanding in the areas that wherer needed. note: the back bumper cover is plastic, dont use air sander on it. it melts the plastic........ luckly it wasnt bad and just surface. it can be fixed.
after i got the sanding done, it was about 12ish. then what do ya know ....................it rains....
fastforward to 4:30 ish and it has stoped and i just about gave up for the day but the sun was out and the car was drying up. so i wiped it down and blew out all the seams for wat and taped it off. time to paint the primer.
