Mach 1 Nearly Ready for Paint Booth
#1
Stang 
My Mach 1 is getting closer to the paint booth. It could be done by Christmas but I'm not holding my breath. Door jambs were shot already and some of the new Blue Glow paint is visible. Can't wait to dump those "Super Wide" 70 series tires from 1980. I can't believe they still hold air!

Looking good. I wish I could find some NOS of those tires!... or some 60's. Cant wait to see the finished car. So far I have a spare room full of replacement or upgrade parts and a car just starting its body work. Luckily the previous owner did from the front bumper back to the quarters. Most of my work is in the trunk and a few places on the quarters.

Very cool. What color are you going for? Same as before? The door jambs look darker.

The Blue Glow is the original color of this Mach 1 (my C6 car - which has been red for the last 29 years). My 4 speed car is also Blue Glow and is the one in my profile pic. I think the lighting in the shop must give it a darker look. When you look at it in person it doesn't seem that dark. The paint on the 4 speed car is 40 years old and is a bit washed out in comparison I think.

Another photo showing paint applied to the rear panel. This is a more realistic indication of the actual color.
