The rate that your going you'll be ready for paint in no time. Are you going to paint it yourself? What color? Ryan

Yes and no. I'm having a good friend of mine that's visiting from Connecticut spray it. He is production painter at a Chevrolet dealer. I'm going to go with 2008 Torch red.

My Gawd, that's awesome! ::thumb:: ::thumb:: ::thumb::

 

I can't wait to see how this plays out. If I may be so bold as to say, I believe I'm gettin' wood. :cool:

 

 

Ummm... I totally meant that 'figuratively,' of course. :whistling:

Have you ever been to France?

If not you are invited at home for a few month (for free) My car is waiting in the garage :)

 

Your thread started with that cool Story about this 4V engine, and the rest is amazing, I wish to get enough knowledge to paint, weld, redress...well, all what you are doing to restore your Mustang.

 

Bravo!!!

Mike, your doing an amazing job on your car. When it's all done shoot me a email and I will try to get the wife and I to make trip up there to see it in person. Besides that would give her a reason to go back to the beach. Lol.

 

I have not seen how Jim's car is coming Alone but, I am sure his wife is happy to have the kitchen back. Really enjoyed our visit and looking forward to seeing it at cruzin grand.

I am happy to see you are back on this project my friend. I need to get my butt over there one weekend to check it out! Mine runs, but need major carb tuning, which I apparently have no idea how to do...

Today I cut the holes in the hood for the twist locks. I would be lying if didn't say I was a little scared cutting 2 big holes in my near perfect original hood.:-/

 

We also got started on the block sanding.

Mike,

When mine gets to final prime you'll have to do mine. " Accepting all the responsibility if it goes wrong of course"?.

 

Oh no, I don't know if I can go threw that again!

Looks like your at the same stage as me. The only thing i did different was to wait and do my final block sanding on the body after i spray the jambs.The weather here is supposed to be in the sixties Saturday, hopefully I can get my jambs sprayed also. Keep up the good work! Ryan

That's the plan as well. After the painting of the jam's and reinstalling the panels it will get blocked one last time. Mike
