since I blocked the fenders and doors on my mustang I decided to prime at least one side of the car. So I primed the L fender, L door, and L rocker. The
R door,R fender, and R rocker, will get primed tomorrow I hope. It's already masked up and waiting. The L fender looks ready!


you gotta love your gun when you can prime around those pieces of wood in the way without blotchy orange peel. Not me, that's the gun! Don't mind the fender alignment. I just slapped it on there to do body work.

Clear coat will work great on the polished aluminum. I got tired of trying to keep the intake scoop looking good on my T-bucket. So finally wet sanded it with 2000 grit and clear coated it, six coats from an aerosol can. Wet sanded it again with 2000 grit and buffed it out, Now it always looks good.

Got back on the Falcon gasser project today. Pulled the wimpy Falcon 4 bolt rearend, and set the new 8.8" Ford rearend in place after cutting the perches off. Looks like it will be perfect for the Falcon. It's two inches wider, so it should be just the right amount of tire hanging out once I radius the fenderwells and put on 10" piecrust slicks.

"Pie crust" slicks, I love it, never heard that term before and always search for the right word to describe them.

I worked on the transfer seat, things are looking good, right along with the plan from the beginning. I thought I was going to have to make some changes but I think it will work out. Only got a few more days before the Goodguys! double

The 8.8" Ford I put under the Falcon project is a 3.73 posi unit, and you're right; they are a very good option! The equal to a 12 bolt posi GM, but a fraction of the price. Seems the word isn't out on them yet, so they're still affordable.

I went back to the wrecking yard today and picked up a 2wd Ranger driveline to shorten, and the spring plates for the Explorer rearend, so I can bolt it up.

Spent some time color sanding my doors today. One is done through 2000 and the other through 1500. With a little luck I will finish sanding them tomorrow and get them buffed tomorrow or Thursday.

I could get this done quicker if it weren't for sleeping late, taking naps, and going out to eat.

Life is good.
