If "Slime is no longer", then what's its new name?

Very nice, by the way.

So what is the cost to get her to this point? I am thinking I still will go with the prison estimate I got at $4700 down to bare metal then base/clear coat. It's only going to take 6 weeks.

Ahh, I remember that day with my car in Dec of 2000. It's like a kid in the candy store.... You'll have lots of energy to re-assemble that car. Keep us posted/forums/images/icons/wink.gif.

Wow! Very nice!

I was wet sanding touchups tonight... those wet scratches in the middle of the good paint always freak me out. Here's hoping it'll be a while for you.

Looks terrific.

Ahhhhh... I just love the smell of a new paint job. /forums/images/icons/cool.gif I understand that you want to keep your Mustang original but... well I have always wondered why that color was so popular. I remember seeing many Mustangs that color back in the good 'ol days. A neighbor across the street from the house that I grew up in had an ivy green 69 Mustang coupe 390 4speed. Any idea of the precentage of ivy green Mustangs produced? fd

She looks good, Bill. Might have to come up with a different name, though. Too pretty to be called slime.

Car looks great. Man that's a sad story. That rust under the paint story can be true. As I was stripping paint from my previous car, I noticed small surface rust areas under the factory primer where there was no indication of rust on the surface. So I don't think the Mustang shop was necessarily giving you a story. There are many shops that only do turn key. However, they should have told you that in the beginning. Anyway I know you feel great about having your car back. Enjoy
