Removed my driveshaft and (eventually) removed the weeping rear trans seal.

After way too many attempts to try to pull the seal out and much mangling, I eventually realized there was a lip on it and some gentle taps with a screwdriver and hammer did the trick. Somewhere a mechanic is laughing.

But I managed to not damage the tail section, which is all I really care about.

Also spent some time cleaning up the belly. Rust isn't too bad, a couple of old poor repairs that will need addressing in the future.

Most of the reddishness is red primer. I plan to use Eastwood Rust Encapsulator undercoating on it, that should clean things up nicely.

Very nice. I did the same thing to mine. Many times I had a face full of crud from 40+ years of road stuff. The end result was worth it. Hope the Eastwood material turns out well. I used LizardSkin and its holding up so far.

You shouldnt! Just make sure you wipe it off with some sort of degreaser or some sport of cleaner

That looks fantastic! I've had really good luck with Eastwood's Rust Encapsulator so far. I emailed them to see what was up with their rubberized undercoating, and they wait it was the same formula for rust, just with a rubberized texture, so I'm pretty confident moving forwards with it.

So after Christmas, I've got a date with my respirator, lots of lacquer thinner and then some undercoating...hopefully it warms up a little bit so I can actually apply it.

I'll keep you posted on how it goes!

Okay, I've sprayed internal frame coating in the hidden areas, and got started on the undercoating. One can got me from the front of the tank to about a foot down the tunnel. So far, I'm liking what I see, but it's near impossible to get a good pic with a phone and so little light. Click image for larger version

I also got the first coat of RE on the driveshaft.

I've handled it since then, hence the marks, I'll have to give it a clean before another coat.

I'm super excited; I've spent so much time taking things off the car, the undercoating is the first thing to go back on!

Not bad now that it has set up. It's actually thinner than I had expected, but it definitely needs a second coat. Click image for larger version

Thanks! Finished the first coat of undercoating up to the trans, which is where I'm stopping. I think I need another can it two to hit any gaps or shadowed areas, but it looks awesome!

I found out the trans filter I ordered is from the wrong yr FMX - it looks like my trans is a 1978 FMX, so I have a new one on order. Click image for larger version

Got new drums and shoes in. Checked the e brake cable the other day, and it's falling apart, so more shopping is in my future. If it's not one thing, it's another. But it needs to get done eventually, so I might as well do it while everything is apart.

Now I just need to get over this flu turned chest cold, and a slightly warmed garage would be appreciated too...

No brake work, but I finished up the undercoating - at least the part I'm hitting this go around while I have the access - front of fuel tank to trans I. Between frame rails.

Also the correct yr trans filter arrived today so I put that in along with a new rear seal. Trans pan is painted, and should be going in tomorrow.

I left work early because I was feeling ill...amazing how rapidly you can be cured when you've got the garage to yourself!

Nothing...for about two weeks now

I've got new brake parts and lines and some other parts just sitting there and I've been entirely too busy with work.

What did you do with your Mustang today?

I can't really do much with mine until it's warm out, when it is warm out I'll start stripping it so I can sandblast the body and fix any rust holes.Click image for larger version

Ah, finally got out in the garage. Got my driveshaft painted and got my rear axle brake hard lines and SS braided line on. Since I went with the steel lines instead of SS, I coated all the hard lines with clear rust Encapsulator to prevent future rust.

Thanks! So far it's just been a lot of cleaning, prepping and using the right paints. All the lines are new, so it's easy to make them look good
