1971 Mach1 Resurrection
#1
Hello all! My name is Gilbert and this is my current project - a 71 Mach 1. I do resto work from home and play Mr. Mom for my 5 kids. I picked this up in ABQ, NM about 7 weeks ago. With any luck I'll be jammed and ready for paint in two more weeks. I'm going to back to the original light pewter paint and I'll black out the interior as most of it has already been done. As of today all the jams are painted. I'll wet sand the body this week and be ready to paint.

Thanks for the welcome! No kids helping at this point. Maybe this week during spring break. Smile

The other site didn't seem to have much response - I'm hoping to get some technical help as I go along.
