Update on my Falcon Wagon paint. I'm planning to re-paint it next weekend. I never updated this post to show how I had the wavy, messed up paint fenders, RE-painted. Well, I shoulda stuck with them cause when I got them back, the color wasn't even close. After alot of considering and asking around, I decided to repaint the whole car.

I scuffed the car over labor day weekend. Took 3 days to change shiny to dull and I love the way the dull/flat looks so I'm going to paint it with a flat clear. So, it'll be gold basecoat, same as before, then gold pearl, then flattened clear. I think it's gonna be cool.

I'll post pics as soon as the new color's applied... or watch my website, http://MyRideisMe.com

Well, it's painted again!

I went with a flat clear with gold pearl on my Falcon wagon. I think it came out sweet! I did it all in my garage with the help of my buddy. It was so much more work than I anticipated! After the two solid weekends of prep, then paint, I needed a break from the car. Now, I'm just about caught up and will re-start on the engine build. The shortblock is done, but still need to finish assembly. I've decided to put in the T5 too. This is an original 4 door 4-speed car (with a six of course!) which is a funky, rare bird... that's one of the reasons I've been hesitant to do what I know will be better, the T5. No more mess'n around. I want to do this car once and be done and driving!!
