Painting Rear End
Hi Guys,

Can some of you share what you painted your Mustang's rear end with? Epoxy? I have a 72 Mach1.

Chasing Rust
Black rustoleum. Unless your Goin concourse no one will be starring at your rear!
I had mine powder coated but I used SPI epoxy primer on my undercarraige and engine bay. I would have used it on my rear end but wanted a higher sheen and contrast. I cant say enough good thing about SPI epoxy. The only thing is if its gonna be outside a lot you might want to top coat over it. UV will fade it but mine will always be garage and covered when not in use.
I used POR15 stain black on everything. While the center section was still tacky I sprayed it with red oxide rustoleum for that "concours" look. Came out great.
I used Dupli-color Ford semi-gloss black hi-temp engine enamel, DE 1635.

I painted mine with "Chassis Black" that I bought at NAPA. Very tough and durable.

I painted mine with martin senior basecoat clearcoat I like the shiny gloss
Chuck, what did you use for the red oxide on the 3rd member?

1973 Mach 1 Q code 351 4V, 9A paint, standard interior, 3.50 rear, C6 trans.
I used DP74LF epoxy for the pumpkin.

Let me check your shorts!

I think it was VHT P303, red oxide. I'm not 100% certain, couldn't find it in the build records. I tend to use Hi temp paint when I can because they also tolerate gas and oil better than regular enamel. Chuck
