Default I'm thinking PINK!

OK my mind is made up. Pink and blue it is!!! How gross is that? Wow. Now if I could only figure out how to tie dye a car I'd be set.

I headed down to work on the car last night after picking up more paint remover, just in time for a home cooked meal. Thanks mom!
One problem, I forgot my camera?!!! Oh well, I borrowed theirs. The pictures are a bit off since I didn't have the flash on for the first few so please forgive me.

I got started removing the remaining paint.

And Wes continued to shape the rear end.

Some of the paint was proving to be a pain in the butt to remove.
Click the image to open in full size.
And we needed to remove the trunk lid to fix a bump in it. Wes pounded on it with a big hammer but I have no pics of that because I was holding it at the time, sorry.

It's starting to come off, slowly but surely.

Here's a handy dandy sander that works wonders for getting things aligned.

And he swears this is the last of the heavy duty Bondo we'll need to apply.

I love it when a plan comes together?

Removed the hood and fenders to get the last of the paint out of the nooks and crannies. This side is almost done!
Click the image to open in full size.
I hope to have these prepped and ready to paint with primer by Saturday.
Click the image to open in full size.
It was getting late so I didn't get this side all finished quite yet.
Click the image to open in full size.

So that's all we got done last night.
I'm heading down to work on it again on Thursday and will hopefully have all the external paint removed. I'll still need to do the door wells and some other prep work but if things go well we'll be putting on the primer this weekend!!

I decided when we removed the hood and fenders that I'm going to get rid of the antenna and cover up the hole while I have the chance. I'll just find one of the windshield ones out there.

Thanks again for all the support. The donations are up to $120!!! I am still looking for a GT rear bumper cover and rails if anyone has them.

TxLonghorn,
The black with green stripes is hot as hell. I think if I ever have to redo it, that will be the color choice I go with.

Again, I think green stripes is going way too far for a daily driver. I do think the two stripes was much more acceptable than 1 offset stripe, but still green is just going to far.

Green with black stripes was better, but... You better be a Spartans fan with that.

Some nice blue with white stripes or reverse would be nice. Or keep it clean and just one color.

I was curious what it would look like if it was repainted black with an off center green stripe, so I photoshopped it up.

Of course, thats a GT, and the photoshopping isn't perfect, but it kinda gives you an idea of what it would look like.
I'm looking forward to seeing how this project turns out, good luck with it!
I actually like the black and green color combo, curious if you could photochop it with the same colors but in a traditional two center stripe????

Sure thing, here it is-

And the next logical step, green with black stripes-

Personally, I like the green with black stripes the best. Mabye it's just because that one took me the longest...

Bad news guys. The UPS place would not ship my front bumper. I did get all the other stuff off in the mail ($85--ouch!). Hey Buddy, I'll cover all the shipping (Merry Christmas!), but I can't come through on the bumper.

Hey Buddy,I have some GT rails (Rocker panels..right?)But honestly don't have the cash for shipping.(At this moment)
I might have $30 bucks, but does anyone know about how much it would cost to ship these from Georgia
to him?Just PM me your shipping address just in case the shipping charge isn't too high and I'll send'em
to ya!

Oh Noez!!!!
Thanks for trying so hard and for the goodies they would send!

So I have a question for anyone out there. Has anyone shipped anything that size personally? Who did you ship it through?
Let me check into some things and get back to you BigDave. I owe you big time!

Eleanor06 - Great! But let me figure out this shipping problem and I'll get back to you too.

I'm going to be working on the car again tonight. I'm still hoping to be ready to paint the primer this weekend.

Check with Greyhound (yes, the bus line [8D])on shipping the bumper. They will usuallyship larger items at a reasonable cost.

Thats a sweet Austin Healy in the background. Have you decided on a color yet? That Dark Highland Green would be my choice or the Nightmist Blue from 66. Not current colors but still Mustang colors. Something to be said for keeping it the original color too, in case you want to sell it later. Looks like you guys are doing a great job, I know what it's like stripping a car to bare metal using paint stripper, done it twice myself. Really looking forward to your progress and good luck with your project.

Wow ... terrific thread, and let me say this first: Everyone who has read this thread and contributed anything from a part, to money, to kind words has really been an inspiration. Really ... in today's world, we hear so much about the terrible side of people that we can forget how giving and kind people can be.
I wish I had some parts to send you Buddy, but unfortunately, all I have are a couple of V6 grilles (which you're welcome to if you should need them).
I also wondered while I read this if one of us shouldn't send this whole thread to someplace in Buddy's home state (Iowa?) that could really make a major impact on this project. A local TV station or high end body shop would probably love to make some type of difference in this whole thing. Anyway, it's been fun following this thread ... I'm looking forward to seeing the progression.

I think it would hurt his step-father's feeling to farm out bodywork, and it looks as though he has matters well in hand.

Buddy, I do think with the amount of "community" involvement here and the photo diary, plus the whole story overall, you have a good chance to get this project covered in a magazine somewhere. This has all the makings of a feel-good sort of "pheonix project." The amount of support on this forum attests to that...

That's true Dave, you're right... I wasn't trying to undercut what his stepdad has done though. In fact, I think a shop actually doing the work would take away from this whole project. I meant that maybe some high end place might donate parts or something ... something just to help out.

How about forwarding the whole thread to Boyd Coddington or Chip Foose? I think Boyd would take great
interest in it. Anyone have a connection/friend of a friend who knows Boyd or any of his guys, Just as long as
D-wayne the king of all A$$H0LES does'nt get wind of it we might have a chance at getting Buddy some
help with parts.
