72 Grabber Blue Mach 1 build
I unmasked the engine compartment and door jambs today. The engine compartment has been masked up for about 3 years, it was kinda like opening a Christmas present. The underside of the body will be next, its been masked up for 5 years. Ryan

Doesn't help you with your masking but just a suggestion for next one or to others.
I ordered two sets of new lenses and frames from Carpenter the mfg. of the repo. I ordered the rejects. The reject is that the aluminum frame is loose from the lens. This allows you to mask off the area around the lens much easier then paint and then put them back on the lens. They are also half price for the reject that saves hours, lol.
Carpenter is in Charlotte, N.C. just down the road from me but he makes them in China. They are perfect right down to the Ford oval logo. Probably what you have since they only come without the black.


When a man is in the woods and talks and no women are there is he still wrong??

Got the top part of the rear seat back covered today. The seat foam is in good shape still so I reused it.
