Just the Details...1965 Mustang Convertible

Today we have some more pictures of the 1965 Mustang Convertible being restored by Jeremy Turner at Maple Hill Restoration.  You can check out Maple Hill's web site at www.MapleHillResto.com.

This Mustang is being painted Twilight Turquoise.  Please note that due to the flash and lighting that the color does not look exactly the same in all of these images.

In this pictures, Jeremy has painted the underside of the car in the correct gloss black like original.  This was matched to the original finish on this January '65 production, Dearborn plant Mustang Convertible.  You can also see how the body color (Twilight Turquoise) paint was applied over the black, duplicating the original spray patterns.

The engine compartment was then painted with a black that is not as glossy as the underside, again, duplicating the original finish.
