lower body paint argent/black measurement
#1
Tried a search, no joy.

Is there a reference in the factory assembly manual or otherwise that would give the measurements on how wide the lower body accent paint (argent or black) is?

Not sure if our painter can find this info. So I'd like to know for myself and provide him with the info.

Thanks

Go to the 429 megasite pretty sure it is documented there

Also which end of the wiring harness block did you need [ green connector ]
I have a parts harness, you can have the part you need off of it, let me know and I'll send it to you

Here is the web link for what Don is referring to.   http://429mustangcougarinfo.50megs.com/paint_info.htm   Shoiuld give you most of what you need.

If you want it done right, I highly recommend you print out that entire web page and go over it with him in detail. Several times. And one more time. I did that with my painter, gave him a notebook with printouts and whole slew of pictures showing dimensions and how to mask and he STILL screwed it up. I swear it;s the chemicals....

If you have the lower body bright moldings, set the paint line break right at the center of the molding holes and studs, or at the bottom edge. The factory applied the lower body color first, then it was masked off and the primary color was sprayed. The masking was anything but precise. Make sure he knows the proper pattern on the rockers and jambs.

If you're having the taillight panel replaced, be sure to remind him to pre-drill the holes for the honeycomb panel trim and to fill the holes for the 73-only bumper filler. He also needs to fill the holes in the bumper recess in the rear quarter, another 73-only thing.

Thanks all! Will visit the 429mustangcougarinfo site. Chemicals...that explains much Hemikiller. They (paint/body guys) do have talents I do not though.

Not going with lower body bright trim molding. Deciding on just running an thin argent stripe in place of that. I've seen that done (in black) in a build on this site and rather like the idea, as it looks good when the molding is absent.

Thanks for the tailpanel tips. The honeycomb panel is now on the list for stuff that is going to the bodyshop tomorrow.

It's the green connector for the engine bay harness Don. Thank you!

Those green connectors to the back of the fuse box are now reproduced: VA Classic Mustangs and NPD carries them, as probably do others.

Let me check your shorts!

I have an original 72 Mach 1 with Argent paint and no chrome from factory. I can get you some pics maybe later today. I have not looked at the 429 info to confirm if same. How it is masked off inside the door sill and post is also specific. I also have an original 73 vert with Decor Group and black on bottom and has the trim. 
Also the Mustang Monthly info for hood black or argent is wrong and I have been told by other members that the current templates they sell are also wrong. I have an original I can get you a rub off of the hood paint if you need.


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

Thanks! Pics would be fantastic. With maybe a tape measure/ruler for reference.

My wife wants the hood in body color only. No argent. So thanks for the offer of the rub off of the hood paint. 

What determined hood painted in argent/black?
