FINALLY getting some paint on the Mustang!!!!

It's been a lot of work (still a lot of work to do), but it's getting there. This is only after two coats, but it's comming out good so far. (I'm just killing time while I wait for the paint to flash) If all goes well, I'll clear it tomorrow. Then the real fun begins. Can't wait to wetsand and buff the roof!

Hey you're really getting a handle on this work! Is that an SPI color?

Thanks for the kind words. The clear coat went on pretty good with only a couple runs and some trash, but that will clear up pretty good.

Everything I'm using is SPI except the color. It's Omni MBC in Ford Performace Red.







Heres what the roof looked like before:

You're my inspiration Arrowhead. I hope my rookie efforts at painting come out half as good. I just hope I have the patience to keep at the body work like you did.

Thanks, but the thanks really goes to Hotrodders.com. There is no way I would have been able to do this project without the information on this site. I pretty much started out only knowing the basics of what to do. I learned a lot on my T bucket build, but there wasn't really any repair/restoration involved and the bodywork was minimal.

cboy,
I know you have the skill set to prep and paint you car. As far as the bodywork goes, you have to feel it. If it feels straight, it is straight. It's amazing how perceptive your fingers and hands are. Now I know what they mean "massaging" body panels. There's been a lot of that going on in my garage

BarryK,
Using SPI products has made this process so much easier. From easy sanding epoxy to awsome 2K & high build primers, glass smooth clears, exceptional prices and quick delivery. I will only use SPI products on future projects. Keep up the great work!

Nice job Arrowhead. Your posts about struggles and bodywork getting the best of you, people might call you a lier looking at those photos. Sure does look slick and straight. Bet your glad to be at this point, most of the hard tedious work should be done.
