Just the Details...1965 Mustang Convertible Restoration

If you been following along with our posts about Maple Hill Restoration's 1965 Mustang Convertible restoration, you are familiar with the great detail and time that has gone into this restoration.  As the Mustang continues to go together, we wanted to share one of Jeremy's projects to make the car as maintenance free and last as long as possible.

During the restoration, the insides of the panels and frame rails were extensively cleaned.  In order to protect these areas, a rustproofing substance was used.  The product used was Transtar 4423 Amber Rustproofing.  As you can see in the pictures, this product is sold in an aerosol can.

This product was chosen because it flows quite well into cracks and crevices, and then it dries to a waxy finish. You will notice that some extra, hidden holes were made to apply the product.  Again, I want to note that all of these areas were previously cleaned during the restoration.  For example, the inner rockers on the convertible were glassbeaded on the insides by gaining access by cutting the end "caps" off.  After cleaning, these "caps" were welded and finished.

Enjoy the pictures!
