Maybe a stupid question, but why were the interior floorpans not repainted back green ??

Maybe they made that choice since those areas will not be seen normally once the car is assembled. Plus painters are often more comfortable about controlling/limiting overspray and the like

Just one possibility that hopefully was not copied under the car
Thank you Jeff, you are a gentleman and absolutely correct, it was not copied under the car.
Doing my best and frankly it's tough being in Australia, in Western Australia(3000 miles from Sydney) and in a remote part of Western Australia 200 miles from a city. We don't have mustang experts let alone Shelby. Anyway, doing my best and having a crack, the car will be nice.

No idea why my pics are coming out upside down, I guess it's the only downside of being an Aussie. :)

Even though not going for concours, just by restoring original parts, it usually takes minimal extra effort to do them the correct finish.

Do the rear wheel wells have sound deadener?
Hi Charles,
Yes they do but they screwed it up a bit. I have pics of it as it was but I guess kaka happens and I have a business to run so was busy and left them to it, could have been worse, could have been better.
My approach is to get this car great not perfect, so I can get my foot to the the floor before I pop my clogs. :)
