1965 Mustang HiPo Convertible Update

Here are some more pictures of our K Code Mustang Convertible project. These show the next step in our painting procedure that involved blacking out the engine compartment area and painting and blacking out the rear wheel well area.

All of the patterns were determined by looking at many cars produced around the same time period in the Dearborn plant. If you have not been following along, this car was produced in August of 1964.

It is interesting to note that while the underside was a fairly glossy black, the engine compartment was blacked out with a lower gloss. You will note that the rear wheel well area received undercoating black out. This was surprisingly originally applied fairly neatly without even getting on the rear frame rail. We tried to duplicate that process here.

The next update should cover the finish painting of the trunk area.
