Now that the Bee is wrapping up, I'm turning my attention to the ole' Stang-a-tang. I've had several before this one: 66 Coupe (my first car), 67 GTA Fastback, three other 67 Fastbacks that were turned into 68 GT500 tributes, a Mach, and a Boss. Both of which I flipped and really didn't do too much to other than clean and detail. So I'm starting to dig into the details like I know on the Mopars, and it's been an interesting road so far. Lots of good info out there and just like the other makes, lots of confusion.

I for one was under the impression that the Mustangs were all Red Oxide primer underneath. Well, not so. Dearborn was one of those plants that eventually used leftover paint from the day before, all mixed together, and sprayed on the underside. Commonly called "batch paint", and not "slop gray" that is used for other parts on the car. This resulted in a wide range of dark grays, to black, to even a metallic style green/silver/brown. I sprayed my rails with Red Oxide thinking this was correct for my car, which, after some investigative investigation, found that it's not!

My car has undercoating sprayed all underneathe and everywhere I scraped it off, found a very dark, dark, blue/gray...almost black paint under it. It's very hard to see in the pics, since it looks black, but taking flakes out into the sun reveals a very dark blue/gray color. NEAT!!!!!

Here's a shot where the fuel line protective shroud on the Driver's side rear torque box was bolted down, and you can see the primer color. No Red Oxide evidence anywhere on my car. The other picture if the rear frame rail on the passenger side. :biggthumpu p:

And lastly, what the heck is up with my darn camera!!?!?!??! I can't seem to get a good shot lately

Fortunatley, I have a gallon of leftover epoxy primer from the Bee that I can add some more black to, a well as maybe some blue/green, to get the right shade. That color is also on the transition panel over the axle, rear frame rails, and gastank/trunk floor panels. Neat stuff!!!!

Cheers

Although owning my own Fred Flintstone mobile is tempting, I figure for safety purposes, I better install a floor. So, in goes a one piece pan! Easiest was to install this was on the lift from the underside. With the doors on, no way from a geometry standpoint(and I'm no good at math...I'm gooder at English) that was going to fit in that tiny opening. More pics on the camera and these are just a few from the phone, but the floor has been in and out several times to drill plug welding holes, and it's the only way to install a full pan for sure!

Here's with the pan laying in, screwed down, and a few welds in place to make sure it's aligned correctly. I used a torch and a hammer for persuasion in some areas to make sure no gaps and sheet metal screws cinched it up perfectly! Last one piece I installed was a 68 Convertible and of course, that was nice and easy form the top!

Today I'll finish the welds, grind smooth, prime, and seam seal. After that, gas tank comes out for a small rear crossmember patch, and I'll start in on the lower driver's quarter panel patch. That'll be it for the rust on this one! I'll have it disassembled and off to the blaster at the end of the month! I think I may be the first person that has already registered for MCACN 2018!!!!

Cheers
