Here's what a '68 looks like without a darned thing on it:

That's not primer: that's bare metal with a texture that looks like the finest gray beach sand. Very nifty looking.

It's now at the paint shop for about 4 weeks (sob!)

The stripping shop had four Mustangs in the front room alone - a 65 coupe, 65 fastback, 67 fastback on a rotisserie, and mine.

Oh - I forgot. At some point, one of the crappy paint jobs had gone right over the driver's door data plate. American Stripping said it was too delicate to hit with their blaster, so they'd just cover it. When I got to the paint shop, I opened that door and found tape on the plate. I peeled the tape back... to find the data plate clean and with all the factory black printing in place.

All I can think is that someone must have used a very light touch on a bead blaster during the prep. I had been resigned to a bare-metal plate!

These guys are *great*!

Geez. That's one of those Hustler poses. Not very ladylike!
