Turning the white 1967 fastback green...step 2...strip it (update again))
Man is it freakin' cold. My torpedo heater could only manage to get my garage to 45 degree in the proximity of the work area.
Regardless though I muddled through. Some may recall I made the decision to paint my white mustang green recently. So I have kicked off that project today by doing a partial tear down of the car prior to stripping the paint.
No real surprises yet either which is a good thing.
The tops of the fenders where the paint was cracked are all metal and so is the back at the bottom of the rear glass.
Look....you can see the car's first coat of blue paint!
There appears to some filler on the rear lower quarters, but there is also a seam so I know the panels where replaced once already, so I'm confident it just thick application for smoothing.
And lastly....the small amount of bubbles on the one corner of the door
The only things unexpected today....where finding wood shims here:
And a mouse nest
The blue pellets are the mouse poison I put out about 2 months ago that all disappeared in a day....and 1 body showed up about a week later in the garage.
And now after a nice dinner since I realized I hadn't eaten anything all day and a quick review of a cool youtube video explaining how they were installed...I yanked the wing windows...and called it a night.
5 yrs later, aside from putting in high back seats I had never done anything. So, new suspension installed, 4 wheel disc brakes, 17 inch rims, interior upgrade, collecting new motor parts album: Dodgestang Photo Archives
