Title: My 66 mustang convertible
Post by: shelby_mustro on November 26, 2016, 06:08:55 PM
Thought I'd post up some pics of my 66 mustang of the retro progress. Just painted it myself over the weekend came up pretty dam good.

Looking good. If I get bored I might do the same.

Well done. I think my only real option is to paint mine myself. $10k+ for a professional paint job on a C Code coupe is simply throwing money away.
It looks like you fabricated a spray booth outside, any more pics? Any progress shots of the prep work?

Thanks guys.

I just put tarps around my pergola to try and stop dirt and what not from blowing in. I always hose the ground down as well to stop dirt from flicking up.

Tape up all the openings and what not....

I've still got to paint the rest of the pannels just haven't had the time.

I was in the same boat not wanting to pay 10k for a paint job it came up just as good as some of these other paint jobs I've seen around. Quite happy with it.

I painted the base coat several times and sanded back the bad areas until I was happy enough to clear it.

Is still an interesting thing

What, getting banned from a forum for spamming it?
