I used the "trunk spatter paint" I think it looks great! A quick sand to get the high spots cleaned up, a little scrubbing and spray it on, easy! Would di it again in a heart beat and seems to hold up well.
1968 mustang coupe
Inline 6 by cotrell racing (Tpis)
Clifford cam, 2 barrel weber carb, large log head, 1-6 roller rockers, ported, port devider, duel out header, duel exaust (with turbo mufflers) new dash pad, bezels, v8 suspension and drivetrain swap, lowered, custom real leather interior and I'm still not done!
If I didn't want a stock look, I would go with a carpeted trunk area. I've seen really nice trunk carpet kits for classic Mustangs. It makes the trunk look a lot like a modern car. I expect it also makes it quiet.
Again, because I am anal I will probably have the trunk all painted and or primed then SS
then put down fatmat, carpet and finally the plaid trunk kit.
I tell you, I'm a little screwed in the head like that.
Full floor pan
Shelby drop, 4 wheel drum to disc conversion, rebuild front suspension/steering, taillight panel, trunk floor,302 and AOD upgrade, wiring harnesses back in, and hopefully only patch panels on the quarters
I currently have mine done with splatter paint. I've got a fuel safe racing cell, which I would like to leave exposed, and a JL Audio sub box wrapped in black carpet. What I would like to do is Dynamat the exposed trunk area, then cover it with black carpet....when the budget will allow for that.
I had my upholsterer use the same cut-pile that is in the interior. He used fiberboard then glued in the carpet.
