Turning a 1968 Fastback into a GT500E-inspired Mustang took more than a little elbow grease. A 3D scan of the Mustang was the first in a series of eight steps leading to a model that could be produced with rapid prototyping. Nine components were created: two pair of side scoops, two hood scoops, front grill, rear bumper and center console. For the steps from sketch to finished product, click on the link above.
