A little aircraft stripper followed by Self Etching Primer and Flat black, should do the trick.
Who knew painting the wheel could make such a difference?
So next I needed to work on the brakes, because well there wernt any when I took of the wheel.
The drum was empty so I picked up a great little disc brake kit from a friendly seller that goes by the name mgchevyparts.
Here is the engine bay. Had to switch to a booster to run disc so will pick one up today.
Here is the booster they come in gold so I put a quick coat of black on their.
There is something missing from the engine bay. Hmmmm
How bout that old carb.
Well maybe this new thing I have laying around would get rid of that.
Haven't had time to put it on. Who wants to see my failed dent repair???
Cant decide on whether to go back with the original Caspian Blue and White interior or switch to black I have them both?.!....
Ordered new headlights, bumper, carb, etc what more should I get?
Ripped out the old interior here is the rusty floor pans and old dash. AMERICA!
And one last pic of my side project baby. This is my small project you should see my daily driver 500HP.
Thanks for looking will finish rim painting and brakes tomorrow. Also putting on the Edelbrock tomorrow and starting body work. Need new exhaust. Please tell me what you think. I'm just doing what I love!

The ultimate goal is to sell the Black interior and put the original Capian blue paint job and white interior back in with a little modern twist. First comes brakes, then body work, and since its raining to day Im going to get very little done. Thanks for your input! I really appreciate it.
I really appreciate you guys taking the time to comment. I have the disc brakes installed completely, painted the rest of the wheels, and bled all 4 brakes. I will be sure to upload the rebuilding of rear brakes and finished front brakes pictures tomorrow. I should be installing the Manifold and Carb tomorrow also. If anyone has any tips on replacing manifolds and carb's this is my first time on a mustang so tell me please. Thanks check tomorrow for more pics.
Thanks Uncle Smokey, I really appreciate opinions because I like knowing what the majority of people think. I have a cool before and after picture I thought I would share with you guys.
This is the first day that I bought the car. (Engine Shot)
And this is today 2/25 after I finished installing the new intake manifold. It has come a long way since I bought it about a month ago!!! I think its turning out to be exactly how I pictured it and I couldnt of done it without the help of all the great members on this forum.

Sorry for Waiting so long to update. Had a problem with the intake manifold and switched to a black Performer RPM from Edelbrock. Other upgrade was finishing disc brake system with the Dual Bowl master cylinder and a Baer Proportioning Valve. Check it out!
I only did the front and the kit is custom from a ebay seller I met. The kit ran 440 dollars and is the only kit that fits original 14 inch wheels. I then had to buy 100 dollar master and 50 dollar proportioning valve to make everything work. So 590 dollar investment total.
Update: Had the edelbrocks water neck bolts strip out and they wont return it. Thinking about installing a helicoil.
Here we go again. Finally progress on the coupe. Had some trouble with the fine tunning and so I sent her off to a local shop to be tuned, and get some dual exhaust installed. I also ordered the replacement quarters, full floor, and one of the wheel wells that was bad. As well as the taillights, and bumpers. Here she is leaving me.
Long time no see. Haven't done much but finished the engine and worked on rear end will post pics today I am about to cut out the floor pans on either side of the trans tunnel. Is there any kind of bracing that I need to do to keep the car straight while I cut the old ones out and weld in the new ones?
