The hood was sanded down to bare metal and all the old scoop holes welded.

It looked good before it was primed but it needs a lot of work

After a little block sanding and bodywork

I plan on using the Mach 1 scoop and once that comes in I will bolt it on and finish the bodywork. At this time the hood is low in front of the hole but the scoop should draw that up.

This must be a common rust problem with the design of the Mustang II fender brace. We had a lot of rust on one side but removed both and sandblasted them.

Starting to fabricate a new piece

After Brian finished he epoxy primed and fit it back on the fender and marked where he drilled out the factory spot welds. Next he will sand those spots to bare metal so he can weld.

I sprayed a couple of coats of epoxy to seal the bodywork.

Block sanded with 80 and found one low spot that required a little filler

Two coats of SPI Turbo primer

The hood required a lot of work but I'm happy with it now.

Nothing exciting to show. The doors had a lot of door dings and a little rust that was cut out and a patch welded in place. The doors were sanded to bare metal and sprayed with 2 coats of SPI black epoxy. I finished the body work and sprayed another coat of epoxy.

The hood scoop was block sanded and sprayed a couple coats of black epoxy. After wet sanding will be sprayed SPI matte black.

The fenders have been sprayed white epoxy almost ready for SPI orange paint
