Reassembly time

IMG_3476 IMG_3479 IMG_3470 IMG_3471 IMG_3474 IMG_3475Yesterday and today we wet sanded and buffed the Mustang. We also had time today to start some of the reassembly. When we wet sand we start with 1000 grit paper. This process is to remove any orange peel and/or imperfections in the clear. After the 1000, we switched to 2000 grit paper then we used 3000. These last two steps are to make buffing  easier. When we buff we start with a heavy cutting compound the switch to a lighter cutting compound, followed by a polishing compound. After the buffing was complete we started putting parts back on. We were able to get the trunk back together, spoiler on, the sail panels on, and the doors all back together. Tomorrow we hope to get the fenders on, bumpers on and the rocker moldings. Once that is done, all thats left is to get it all detailed for the owner. Who knows, if the weather cooperates it could be Friday.

  1. Went to PA this week and showed the car to some of my co-workers who love to see old cars re-painted said they loved the color… thanks guys for the coaching

    • Great!! I just went off of your direction, you did the hard part. Are you ready to get it back? We will probably have your car complete tomorrow after 3. Just wait until you see it in person and in sunlight! It makes all the difference in the world.
