Mustang Sally, a popular R &B song recorded by Mack Rice in 1965 when this car was just a few months old was just as popular as the Mustang was. This has been a busy few days we have put in on this car. Today, although we dont have pictures of it, we blocked the tops of the hood and trunk, both doors and one of the fenders. All this comes down to sore shoulders and huge piles of used up sandpaper. After we blocked the outside of all those panels we started sanding the under sides of the hood trunk and doors. We had enough time left in the day to go ahead and get the trunk and hood trimmed out. This is the color the owner chose, Candy Apple Red off of the 1966 Mustang. After we sanded these panels we put them in the booth, wiped them down with a degreasing agent. This removes dust, oil, fingerprints and all other contaminates that would effect the finish. Chase then sprayed a coat of PPG urethane sealer followed by 3 coats of red and two coats of PPG clear. The close ups show how crisp and clean they turned out. If the owner likes the color, we will proceed with the doors and flip these panels over and get them sprayed. I am really pleased with how this project is moving along. Its not too often we start the blocking process and spray color the same week. The owner should be excited to see the progress.
