Taking a friends advice and starting this progress post for my 68' Mustang Coupe that I'm restoring, so guess we'll start with the subject: ImageUploadedByMustang Evolution1393988263.642117.jpg

Thanks! Wore out 2 wire brushes so far.....hahaha
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
