Its been a while since I posted, been busy with lots of small things that dont really show in photos.
Anyway since the last post we have finished priming the exterior as well as the interior. I was really impressed how the interior came out, all nice and new and shiny.. But that did not last long because next we scuffed it all up again to add sound Deadener and Seam Sealers as per factory practices of 1966/67 at Dearborn USA.
The product I used was recommended by the guys at Concours Mustang Forum in the USA as a great alternative to the factory original texture/look and finish of the day. Its called Spectrum Sludge sound Deadener its a water based product so very easy to work with and I managed to get it locally from their distributers in CT called Second Skin. So that worked out just great for me !
It was quite a weird process as the factory was notoriously messy and we as restorers of these classic cars have a bit of OCD to be neat and perfect. Anyway I tried my best to make a mess and get the factory finish on my nicely painted interior body... The aim here was to put the Spectrum on nice and thick with a sponge and a brush, trying to create the texture and peaks and valleys of the original, then once it was dry I took Rocker Guard spray to feather out the edges to give it that sprayed on look.. Making more mess and over spray.
Then in the boot/trunk I had to poor the sealer in certain areas to give that smooth poured look with drips and all...
Lastly I had to paint the roof and rear quarters with red oxide and necessary overspray. It was a messy process and next I need to finish off the sealer on the floor pan and front. We will then be ready for final Base Coat/ Clear Coat on the interior in the original Dark Moss Green. The Dash and doors will then need to be painted satin black or "charcoal grey metallic" as per the original paint code which I have managed to track down from PPG USA. Another weird colour in theory but on the car its going to look super amazing as it matches the door pads and black interior vinyl perfectly.
