Did they paint using base/clear or single stage?
Ya shouldn’t be too much longer now.
I’m pretty sure he uses PPG paint but not sure if it’s a single stage or not. I will ask him again.

I made sure they did and it turned out so nice. They had used the pattern from Mustang Monthly in the past that was wrong, like a ton of other guys did. So I explained to them how it was wrong, and went over the correct layout with them. They were very great about realizing how the pattern from MM was wrong and had no problem with me showing them the correct way to lay it out. 
Anyway I’m sure glad I took it to this shop. Paul and his crew are really great to work with and very knowledgeable! My car is turning out really nice, and I would recommend them to anyone. Their web site is Mustang Craftsmen .com.

John, I'm very happy for you. These guys certainly are doing a great job. The hood looks about as good as it could ever be, very nice!
Perhaps they should talk to Motortrend TV (velocity) or Discovery TV and do a TV series. Their work looks way better than some of the crap being shown on some of those series.
It's starting to make me think about redoing my hood, but matching the metallic Light Pewter would be almost impossible.
I'm looking forward to seeing it in August.

Thanks Geoff, ya they are doing a great job. I think trying to deal with the tv stuff would hinder the work and the quality. But I’m sure the money would be good! 
I was wondering the same about my color too cause it’s not a stock Ford yellow. But I had some of the original paint and the formula that was used. So it had to be pretty easy for them to match it, even though they used a different and much better paint. I think you’d be surprised at how it could be matched, but I guess the metallic would be tougher. 
I’m really looking forward to the Ford show in August.

 John, yeah a TV show would get in the way I'm sure. A really good shop wouldn't need that sort of trauma anyway.
 As for redoing my hood, it definitely would be hard on that paint even though I still have some left over. Air pressure, humidity and the way you hold your mouth all have an impact on the result. Just after the car was painted in 14, I was in the Retro-Fest cruise downtown, when a fat assed cop backed into the right rear quarter and put a 10" long scratch in it. Even though the Police paid for the damage repair and the same painter did it, it still can be seen (by my eyes). Pisses me off to this day. I should have insisted the whole car be re-painted.
So if I did the hood again now and it didn't exactly match, I'd be REALLY pissed off. For now, it'll stay the way it is, but should the car get damaged, then I'll think seriously about doing the whole car again.
See you in Ford country,
Geoff.

I did, it was a horrible feeling. But it’s going to be better than it was.

Thanks bkdunha. I had them use a pic of your door sill area for reference. They didn’t realize 72-73 was different than 71. They did it like the 71, but had no problem changing it to the correct way that goes all the way up to the sill plate. And, they even said that they learned something new and thanked me!
