I know how that goes! I found the Eastwood wire brushes to come in handy when doing my underside - both for large flat areas and corners. I had to add something to my order to get free shipping, and I needed brushes so I grabbed them, turned out well.

It's pretty close, it's actually the color from the new Mustangs, around 2008 I think. Then you can go to your local Ford and buy a touch up pen for any chips that occur over the years.

Yea looks good on it! I'm thinking of going with a white, from the newer bright whites with some black outs Or possibly flat black for a while....got a while to decide on that LOL, interior is definitely gonna be black tho..

I'm not a fan of white on classic cars. First thing I think of when I see one is they're trying to hide poor body work.

HaHa!!! That may very we'll be my goal.....LOL Just kidding, I'm still a bit undecided but like I said I have Lots of time to decide, will most likely get a few coats of flat black on it after body work is complete and just drive it for a while like that to get some enjoyment out of it ya know...I have considered grabber blue, love that color but see more and more on the road with it( newer models ) but still, want it to be different

Looking good your way ahead of me tho....what did you spray the back of the fenders with? Are you spraying and clearing parts separately? I only ask cause the door looks complete with the handle already on

When I bought the car it needed a repaint so I decided to take it down to bare metal to see if there were any rust issues. The bottom of the doors were in really bad shape so I decided to buy new ones rather than fix the old ones, and that's the color they came out of the box. We put both sides on with the handles just so we can test fit them and get all the gaps correct. They will come off again so I can paint the door jams then I will reinstall them before final paint. The less body parts I have to put back on after paint means less parts getting chipped or damaged. As for the inside of the fenders I'm going to spray them with fresh undercoating. I was real lucky with this car. Not counting the doors if you took all the rust spots on this car and combined them it would be no more than the size of a nickel. Next week we'll primer the rest of the car. Then on to sanding, body filler where needed, more primer and more sanding.

No I don't but that's a good idea. I may start one.
I'll download some more pics off my computer at work so you can see what 68 looked like. It wasn't concourse but it was an extra nice driver. The car was like new inside and out.
New paint, all new interior, rebuilt motor and tranny. It was really nice, but I always wanted a fastback but couldn't afford a half way decent one. I had about $9500 in my coupe and I sold it for $14,500. Which gave me enough to buy the Mach 1 I have now.

Ha, mine said the same thing when I decided to tackle the underside first. "You realize nobody will be looking under there, right?"
