We put the final prep on these Mustang parts this morning then had time this afternoon to spray some paint. We noticed the old seam sealer was all cracked and peeling. So we ground all that old out and put in  fresh new seam sealer . We then applied a coat of sealer over the panels for good, uniform coverage.  We then sprayed 4 coats of color followed by 3 wet coats of high solids clear. The color that the owner picked out just pops right off the panels. They really picked a great one for this car.

  1. oooooh! aaaah it looks so good – I am so surprised at so many parts, you all are doing a great job we are getting excited about the car! The color is perfect – you all did a great job coaching us in the color choice also.

    • Im so glad you like it! We are getting pretty excited about this project too. Especially after seeing how nice the color looks. There will be another smaller batch of parts that we couldnt get all of them in there and some werent quite ready to paint just yet.

  2. What is a seam sealer?

    • Seam sealer is a product used by manufactures to seal up the seams where two panels of the car meet. Its purpose is to seal up any holes or variations in the metal to keep water out. The seams around your trunk were looking pretty bad so we removed all the old crusty sealer and put new in. There have been advancements in seam sealer technology that makes it look better and last longer. Your seam sealer is now up to date!!

  3. Man this car is really going to be amazing! The whole family and friends are tracking this one! You guys are doing a phenomenal job! Ok Mom and Dad… I so wanna drive it first!
