So my plan for the paint for the Mustang goes as such:
I need to finish welding a couple pieces where the roof meets the body. From here, I will start stripping panel by panel, fixing anything and priming the panels. Once everything is primed, I will start painting it white. It will no longer be Lime Gold, it will be Gloss White. White, as long as you have a light primer, hides imperfections much better than a dark color. I am going to go with the $50 dollar paint job idea. It’s not like the Mustang is in pristine condition, nor do I have boatloads of money or time to spend on a paint job. I think the white will turn out great, and from here, I think a Black/White theme will look great. I am thinking a black top like it is now, black on the piece that has the rear lights/gas cap, maybe black rims. Also, instead of regular Rust-oleum, I will be using
It’s cheaper than Rust-oleum at the store, and should hold up better than the regular stuff. I am hoping to get the body work that needs done (mainly the welding that needs done and to change out the driver’s door panel) and be able to paint before I officially move out of the other house. So that gives me about 2 months….
