I think that's a better decision, haha. I got the PDF version and it was a hassle to install on windows 7.


But these manuals are proving themselves invaluable!

Well I finished painting the entire apron and engine bay of the car. I would have to say I am very disappointed with the final results. As you can see from the pictures the black did not come out smooth like the primer did.... I feel as if all my hard work was for nothing :-(

NICE WORK HEADACHEZ!

We're nearly in the same boat.
I rippd out both fender aprons and radiator support and welded in new ones
Grinded down and cleaned the entire front engine bay, primed and paint
Rebuilt entire front suspension with shelby drop
New steering
Converted to fron disc brakes

Will eventually restore the entire interior as well

Currently working on the rear.
Ripped out gas tank, just ordered my new one
cleaned and primed/undercoated wheel wells
New rear suspension as been sitting around with mid eye leaf springs

Going to install tank / prime paint all around and work on the trunk next. This is my first project car ever, so it's been taking me a while, a long while....you seem to be soaring through this!

It looks great in some places!

Is that roughness near the bottom the paint bubbling? Maybe just some sanding and a respray will fix it up.
Sorry to hear it isn't going perfect, but like I said it looks great in some places.

I would suggest trying a high build primer in a gun, this sill fill the voids in the rough spots near the battery tray. Just dont overdo it and cover the spot weld details.
Once sprayed you can sand it smooth or make it "flat" as they say, then paint over it with a product with hardener in it.
I use a lot of rattle can myself but for larger areas that need to be durable I use a gun. Even a cheap gun will do a better job than the best rattle can for larger areas. If that is rattle can paint it has no hardener in it and if you try to spray serious primer or paint over top of it the hardener in the new product could cause the can based products to lift and peel.

My suggestion would be to remove that down to metal again and try it with better products, you wont have that much invested but the long term durability & quality will be much better.

what happened to the area behind the battery?

the roughness looks like dirt and rust pitting. the paint looks thin in places as well (but that might just be reflections). IMO, you need to decide how much you care about the engine bay. once you get everything back in there, you won't see 90% of the rough areas. or you can spend another 10-20 hrs stripping the paint, smoothing out the rust (or replacing metal) and cleaning out the dirt.

Near the bottom it's some rough spots.

I did use rattle can but it does look way better than it did originally in my opinion. I just wanted a much cleaner look but I will live.

I agree with you once the engine goes in most of will be covered. The area behind the battery is rusted and pitted and will need to replaced at a later time. The original battery did it's fair share of damage.

Thanks everyone for all the support and invaluable help so far!

I did the same with mine however I "primed" with por15 and then topcoat with chassis black. Had the same issue as you but only in a couple of places, the por15 did a great job hiding things.

Overall it looks pretty good, just touch up the couple of places that need it.

i was referring to the wrinkles in the area behind the battery, not the pitting it looks like it was hit really hard there?

Yeah your right it must have taken a hit there at some time in its life. When the fenders where on it was straight, also the car drove and stopped straight. However it definitely took a hit at one time.

Moving on to the interior. I completely gutted what was left of it, which was not much. Removed the carpet found surface rust under the back seat and up front in the foot wells. Sanded it all down (sorry no pics of the rust) and just sprayed the areas I sanded. In my opinion the other areas look fine and it will be carpeted anyway. I also sanded down the rear door panels or whatever they are called and will be painting them black. I still need to sand and prime/paint the inside of the doors and the dash. Can anyone tell me if the parchment color is original to the car?

Thanks!



I finished sanding down both doors to bare metal and primed them both. I would have painted them but my paint is on back on order, so it will have to wait until next weekend. Still have to do the dash but I'm saving that for last.

What primer are you using?

And what color are you painting your interior?

This is looking great. I love seeing the work as you progress through it. Thank you very much for sharing.

Out of curiosity, and well just because I don't know, what are these two parts here in the pictures? They don't appear to be part of the doors, or am I missing something?

I'm guessing the top one is the glovebox door?
And the second is the interior panel covering the rear vent window?

Not sure though...

Nice work on the '67 Coupe! I noticed that your old seat has the comfort weave pattern. I wonder if your car came optioned with the comfort weave. I'd order up a Marti report [just the basic one] to see what you car came with originally as well as original colors.

To answer your question, yes Parchment was an original interior color. It's also the original color for my car as well. But if your car came with comfort weave from the beginning, I'd stick with the same. Since you seem to be doing a resto-mod project [adding some performance with an original look] sticking with some original style tidbits, like seat patterns is a nice touch. Also the TMI sport seats come in Parchment. They have some bonus side bolster and look original. If you are planning to do some spirited driving, then upgrading to the sport seats will be nice.

TMI [Their site kinda sucks, but the catalog is good]:

Good luck with the project! That reminds me, I need to update my build post as well.

For primer I'm using Rustoleum sandable primer and for paint I'm going to use a semi-gloss black lacquer. I ordered it through CJ Pony Parts.

Thank You for the support and compliments. As for the interior my plan is to do it all black with some aftermarket performance minded front buckets. Not sure on which one's yet.

As for the Marti report I'm confused. How can they give me a detailed report if I have no current door tag? Is it possible for them to know all the options the car came with just off the vin#?

Yes! All you need is the VIN and they have the records from Ford. They send you a report of what your car had originally as far as equipment, details on the color and dates on when the car was assembled, where, what dealership sold the car originally and how many like your car are out there.
