Pepper gray with black stripes
I need to get you caught up on the progress we have made. The body is back on the rotisserie getting ready for paint.
Epoxy primed the fenders and hood
Sanding the interior getting it ready for Lizard Skin
Sanded the back of the hood and deck lid, epoxy primed, sprayed 3 coats of Pepper Gray and the next day 3 coats of SPI Universal Clear
I painted the headlight buckets
I love that color. Can't wait to see the entire car painted
Thats a really good looking color combination, looking forward to seeing it all painted.
Final taping before paint
Oh man!! Getting closer!
nice job !!!!
After sanding we found a couple of small imperfections I wasn't happy with so I fixed them and epoxy primed again. It will be ready for paint after a little wet sanding with 600.
Looking great. Can't wait to see mine in that condition.
Do you have renderings of the finished car? Love to see what you have in mind.
No we have changed our mind a lot as we are building it.
I hear that a lot....
I sent you a PM. Let me know.
Brian covering the engine compartment the other day getting it ready for pepper gray.
Yesterday I sprayed 3 coats of ProSpray pepper gray
Today I sprayed a couple of coats of SPI Universal clear. The next step will be to wet sand and lay out the stripes and spray more clear.
Ready to see some parts going on!
That looks really smooth and shiny.
Brian started laying out the stripes on the body
Five coats of clear wet sanded and buffed

We could not find a power brake booster that would clear the hydraulic clutch master cylinder so we went with the Hydratech Braking System.
We still could not get the hydraulic clutch master cylinder to clear but found one from Modern Drive line that clears. Talked to Hydratech and they said have never had a problem but there was no way it would clear on our car. Looked at a couple of other 65 - 66 Mustangs in the shop and found that the aftermarket firewall on our project was not the same as the original one and that was our problem.
It's a tight fit but clears
Did you have to modify the trans tunnel brace at all for the TKO, or is the crossmember custom?
I had to modify my brace a lot to fit a TKO600 in my 67.
