My 1969 Convertible Restomod - progress thread

Recommended Posts

didn't get a ton of time to work on the mustang last night, but was able to shoot the radiator black and powdercoat the fan brackets.  I hate how aluminum radiators look behind a classic grill, so I picked up some of this stuff from Eastwood:


Pretty easy to shoot.  3 light coats finished out the can and gave an even finish.  



doesn't exactly appear stock from under the hood


but blends right in from the front

test fitting the rear wheels/tires.  I plan on rolling the fenders but they clear the fenderwell and leaf spring nicely.  



centers will be painted a lighter matte color to better approximate vintage torque thrusts.

Making great progress...look forward to seeing it come together.  My '70 Vert is nearing completion to the point of going to paint soon.  

I grew up in Bergenfield, not far from where you are, family still in Ridgefield Park and Waldwick.....

I rolled my fenders and have the same experience, but figure when I get the car fully loaded, it will probably drop a little...
