'69 Convertible Mustang that we've been working on for a customer. The customer is going to complete the resto, but we've been engaged to get the bodywork done and the car painted so that he can assemble from there. This car has the nicest convertible frame and floors that I have ever seen! Absolutely perfect and rust free. It had been tapped in the front corner at some stage though and required some pulling to realign that and general body work, along with a tail light panel.
You can see now the body after media blasting and just how clean the floors and frame are. Body work is roughed out at this stage and the car primed, before further attention to body work and pre fitment of the body panels to ensure a perfect fit prior to paint.
Now the convertible undercarriage is basically done, so it was painted in red oxide coloured 2K per the customers request, so that it would look the right colour, but be easy to maintain (being more shiny than the actual red oxide primer, which is matt in finish).
Tinted primer was used on the car, so that if (when!) it chips, it shouldn't chip back to a different coloured primer, but rather a colour like the paint, making it less noticable. Here the factory style body sealer was used to seal the floors of the car.
Well, here it is, with its freshly applied paint. Looks absolutely fantastic and the colour is to die for..! It was worth the hours and hours of preparation to end up with a result like this. Next step is to paint the engine bay, last, just as Ford did and then assembly.
