Default '69 Mach 1

A few months ago we brought a new pony into the stable. We've been looking a long time for a project that required no rust repair and would serve as a good candidate for my first paint job. A local mustang enthusiast put his project up for sale, and after following his build thread for the last couple years we knew it was the one. She wore Acapulco Blue with white clarion knit vinyl, and that is what she will be. Lucky for us, the car came with all the paint and clear, and a whole bunch of other beautiful interior parts. It also came with a rebuilt 351w and we will use a t5 that we have had in storage. We will restore as many as the parts as possible with an aim to restore the car to stock, with a slight restomod twist.

We got it home and started playing with her right away. Our plans are to first get the car running and drive it for a little while in primer. We can take our time and eventually get to paint later on.

On to the pictures. We got the car home and lined up the sheet metal as well as we could. The previous owner had the car blasted and epoxied, and the black that you see now is Evercoat featherfill. Once we block it down, we'll spray more epoxy and finalize gaps and body lines.

We pulled the rear suspension and put the car on the rotisserie to strip and re-spray the bottom of the car.
