Hi all, I’ve been missing in action for almost a year since first joining & posting first photos of my car, but things are now moving!

 

What was originally going to be a relatively gentle clean up & partial respray has become a full respray.  Here’s a few snaps of the progress...... should have some final photos this week.  Then its off to get new roof installed & re-assembling.

Very nice! A good friend of mine on here also has a 71 M code convertible.

Yours looks like it will be ultra nice.

Looks great! It is the fun part to re-assemble. All those cleaned up parts going back onto a fresh shiny paint job. I really enjoy that part. Hope you do too.

Thanks mate, your car looks great.... I'm really struggling to decide if I go with a black bonnet and hockey side stripe or not. Didn't from the factory, but reckon they look great.

I sure wish I could paint that well, the car looks great. Try it without and see if you like it. Info, you can add them later. I did that and decided I wanted the blacked out hood even though it did not come with it. Chuck

Just my opinion, but would go without the hockey sticks. The green is striking on its own. I think the black NASA hood however would go well if you are going black roof/interior.

Bookend 71 b1, scj convertible.

I agree with the others- perhaps go with the black on the hood but hold off on the side stripes.  That finish looks amazing and you will be blinded by it when looking out over the hood.  lol  The hockey stick stripes have just been done to death.  Now I think it's so cool to see a Mach 1 that came with the trim along the lower body and no side strips, and just the Mach 1 decals (understanding you have a convertible).  Don't get me wrong, they look great, but they have been added to so many cars.  You could always add them down the road.  And of course it's your car and you'll think long and hard about this decision.  Maybe you just want to go for it and have everything completed at the same time.  Do you have other '71 to '73 Mustangs at local shows where you already see a lot of the side stripes, or not?  If you do add them, just don't clear coat over top of them.  I still think it's awesome that so many people outside of the US are into these cars and have the means to restore and drive them.

I'm with donkost here. some colors just don't need any help to look good. I'd be inclined to do the lower body blackout, just because it makes the car look leaner, with just a 1/4" pinstripe at the top like the stripe cars received.

 

Grabber Green is one of my favorite colors, took a lot of parts off a M1 in a local wrecking yard back in the day that was GG wthe M1 Sports interior in white. a very striking color combo.
