Nice, and being seppo should be a lot easier to work on than a Z, with it's finer engineering tolerances.

I've fully restored a couple of '67s now, a CV & a FB, & yes the panel gaps & tolerances are indeed a tad (or two) wider than on our 70's era Zeds! However, one does appreciate the heavier gauge panel steel on the Mustangs. As an owner of both a '67 FB & a 260Z I can tell you that the two cars are definitely chalk & cheese, quite different approaches engineering-wise to 2-door personal transport.
FWIW if a Mustang or whatever needs replacement panels such as the floor then I advise to try & obtain American-steel replacement panels or patch panels.

So obviously the inner front apron, where the battery tray bolts in, has had an old repair patch overlay; a temporary fix at best. Rust to the apron is very common in that location due to battery fluid spill causing corrosion which eats it's way through the steel tray & eventually down through the apron. I've had to repair or replace these on both my 67's. Easily fixed, access is good, the apron panel is simply drilled off, a new one welded in & painted, & a new battery tray bolted on.

Someone has already played around with the exterior and done that. The only visable area on the outside of the body with the rust is in front of the rear wheel arches.

Sure was. Three signs were also used to repair the floor. One was an electrical hazard sign and another was a goodyear tyre sign.
