Today I removed the tag bracket and shot spray can paint on it. I installed the outside mirrors and gave it a bath. Paint and body is done till next year. I have lots of other stuff to attend to. Very Happy I cleaned the shop some so I can start finding a place to store some of the stuff I've been using.

Bob, at least it was really good spray paint! Smile
I'm really hoping to find a good set of fenders and a hood before then. While I was shooting pics from the front, I realized why people pancake the hood. There maybe more work added to the list.

The way they do flake these days is to blow it dry on to wet paint and bury it under clear. There is a special gun to do it . Many youtube videos on the topic . There is also a thread on the hamb about flake , lace etc . that I try to stay away from as it just makes my condition worse ! probably 60 pages or more of mouthwatering candy and flake jobs .

I should stop wasting space on your post with this obsession with metalflake ! My kids find it funny as they sat in the truck with me as I followed a bass boat out to the lake once that had fingernail sized flake paint . Its kind of like the stuff puts me into some kind of 70's hippie trance . There must be a support group for this .Maybe I was a low rider in another life .

Today's projects: I redid the loom going to the rear of the truck. It was sagging between clamps so I added some reinforcement to it. I made some splash shields to protect the engine compartment from tire debris. I need some soft rubber to close up the gaps around the suspension still.

Tony, those shoes were beyond cleaning. The left one was worn from shifting the cycle for the life of the shoe. I did the best thing for them. They have been moved to painting only duty. Smile I have a large enough heater in the shop but it's attached to the house and I can't keep all the fumes out from the house. Whenever the house heater comes on, it appears to create a vacuum and pulls fumes in. In order not to kill my wife, I only paint when I can manage the fumes. Smile

Sunday evening, I had a fuel pump failure. Because the mustang has been less than wonderful, that is what my first thought was. Turned out to be a short in the wiring. There is a step down joint in the factory harness behind the engine. The fuel pump wire was close enough that when you ran over a bump, it moved. It has a tiny abrasion but as you all know, that's all it takes. I have that harness tied to everything to prohibit movement but I sure failed there. Tomorrow I will wrap the wire and make a boot for that area to completely insulate it. With no surprises about an hour will have everything put back together for maybe the last last time. Laughing

I bought a new pump. I'm going to wait a few weeks before installing it just to minimize the changes that have been done while the wiring was repaired. I decided I didn't trust it either. Smile
