1973 "Pro-Touring" project - Creator
Nice work you are doing and will be good to see how the "clean" look comes out
I got luck with my doors and fenders as well although perhaps not as spot on as yours

Thank you really much, I appreciate to hear that Smile I hope it will turn out really nice! 
Glad to hear that you had luck with your fenders and doors too, the doors are a bit expensive if you had to buy them new Big Grin

[the doors are a bit expensive if you had to buy them new]
a bit... ahahaha. Shipping for a hood (300 something) to my door was 1800 via jeggs, add 21% on the 2100 for import tax. The doors are bit smaller but as a pair they also weight more.
Short story: I'll be welding and fighting rust once more as my 71 are crunchy on the front side and underneath. Not sure how bad yet.

For sandblasting, I'm looking around for a portable low pressure and small solution, I see you have a cabinet, what kind of media do you use and what is the air pressure required for this cabinet? What would be the max size of a part you could handle in there?

haha yeah, if you had to get them shipped to Europe too it will be a hole lot more expensive! Damn that ended up being a really expensive hood, that’s the sad part of it when ordering parts for our Mustangs, we cant just pay the price for the parts and say that’s it, then comes shipping, taxes and so, I HATE IT!! Big Grin 

As for media, I’m just using sand to keep the costs down and it works perfectly! I cant remember how much pressure we use in the cabinet, but I think it’s everything from 3-8 BAR, but dont hang me up on that! I actually think for some years ago that I had a 17” wheel in it. We do actually also have a extern sandblasting unit we use for bigger parts, like the enginebay and doors which I just had blastet with that, you can see it in the picture, it’s the red unit in the background, it’s a great solution for what we need it for Smile For that one, it works best with 5-8 BAR of pressure.

Sprayed some epoxy primer in the enginebay today, what a difference that everything are in one color, looks so much better! Big Grin I think next step is to get some epoxy layed down inside the car to brighten everything up a little!

Don't see any second pict, but the one I see looks gorgeous!
All shaved and straight gives already a much cleaner look.
Well done!

Thanks a lot! Me too! Cant wait to get colour on some day. I would really like to remove the wiper motor too, but I cant really figure out what system to use instead, it would have been nice with a system inside the car. My plan for paint are to go with the colour on the wheels and finish of with a matte clear, that would look amazing I think. I will build custom panels to cover up things too and a home made export brace, this is gonna be awesome some day. But for next step the plan are to get the epoxy primer sprayed inside the car too, cant wait for that Big Grin
