So, I haven't really touched the Mustang for about a month or probably more and was feeling kind of guilty about it. I have been too busy and it just got pushed to the back burner for a while, Now that the weather finally broke in Chicago, it's more fun to go to car shows and race around in cars that are completed than it is to work on one that runs but not exactly road worthy yet.
This morning I had a few hours, so I headed over to the body shop and got the fenders block sanded and ready for the last coats of primer to be sprayed on them. I also got the deck lid prepped for the first layer of epoxy primer inside and out and then a couple coats of slick sand on the outside that I will block down sometime in the future. This eases my guilt a little and now the fenders and doors are done and ready for a final block sand for paint.
The left fender;
The right fender (aka: the fender from hell, LOL) that fender was rougher than it looked originally, it seemed to have a ding or a dent or a wave in the metal almost every square inch. Nothing major, just a little something everywhere, a lot of metal working and some filler and a whole lot of block sanding was involved in this one. If it wasn't completely rust free desert sheet metal, I would have passed on it and got another one that needed less work. But in the end, it turned out nice and will look good in color on the car.
And then there is the trunk lid, hopefully this shouldn't be bad. I will block down the slick sand and then primer and block again before it's final coats of primer before paint.
