    Awesome you got it back. Id love to get my 94 Mustang back but judging by the CARFAX its probably in the scrap heap.

    Thanks guys!

    First stage completed today. Spent about 6-7 hours getting the engine bay back up to snuff. Degreased, steamed and coated the engine bay, windshield cowl, underside of the hood with IGL Eclipse high temp industrial coating. Also installed some new stainless hardware and new headlight housings.

    Spent some time after work getting the taillights taken care of. Stripped with 1000 grit mirka abralon, 2000 grit and 3000 grit.

    Polished with swirl killer mini, Meguiars microfiber cutting pad and fast correcting cream. Finishing polish with 3D one BS yellow.

    Glad you got your baby back. I sure liked the rims you had on it. Those black ones to me are UGLY and degrade the whole look of the vehicle.

    Now *there`s* and understatement! Wow, you sure did.

    Those flames were done right, huh? No issues (I gather) from doing the needed correction...and I bet that the 3K took off less overall than trying to compound it more aggressively. Nicely done!

    You hit the nail on the head! Sometimes is less aggressive to damp sand with 3k and just buzz it without having to put a bunch of heat in it.

    And yes this car had 3-4 solid coats of clear with high grade Spies Hecker paint.

    Thanks gents!

    Made some more headway tonight. Got both quarters sanded and polished out.

    Also removed the wing and sanded and polished the deck lid along with the wing.
