I got to say that this is pretty vague. If you want to do a complete restoration you start with taking the whole body off, engine out trans out and start your cleanup and replacement of rusted area's. strip down to bare metal repair what needs it then epoxy primer and paint (your choice of paint bc/cc or single stage) good luck and welcome.
By the way you need to get more in detail with your questions and you will find that you will get more responses.

To begin with, if I'm not mistaken, your Mustang is a unibody so the only "frame" you really have is the front clip.

If you want to do your restoration correctly, as has been mentioned, you'll have to disassemble the entire car and start from the bottom up fixing whatever problems you find along the way.

Good luck.

Spend what it takes to start with a rust free southern or western car. You will be glad you did.
