Hi, I am new to this site an auto electrician in Yamba with a nice 67 Fastback put me on to it, Thanks

I am currently restoring a February 1965 dearborn convertible,
The car is bare metal i have a few grinds and welds to do then i am ready for finish,
My questions are,
1 what order are the finishes applied in? seam sealer, sound deadener, engine bay underbody, exterior and interior paint?

2 what have you guys found works best to replicate the sound deadener and heavy seam sealer around the wheel well seams? i see in the states a product called spectrum sludge that looks great but i cant find it in Oz.
here is a link with some pictures www.concoursmustang.co...topic=15.0

3 what paint products are most accurate for the engine bay, and for the underbody mine should be a semi gloss black for dearborn?


Thanks i will post some pics of my progress once i make some..

Graeme

Welcome aboard Graeme (GGM)

Like where do I begin... Shocked

Dearborn car, so slop paint underneath. If it was me, I prime, grey will do for a Dearborn car, apply the slop paint underneath. Usually a slight green but mainly grey paint as it was all the line colours mixed together (left over paint). Tint the primer close to the chosen colour for underneath.
Then I put the sealer. Sound deadening only in the wheel arches.

Issue is the sealers they used back then are not available now. The outer colour used to have the sealers bleed through on the inside, does not happen now. If you look at the Q thread you will see how I did a Metuchen 69 car....

www.mustangtech.com.au...t=468.html

Car is painted in colour first with the doors & trunk on & the 1/4 panel end caps spaced off by a 1/4". Rear valance painted attached to the car.

Front fenders, headlamp buckets, hood & front valances are all painted separate.

After body colour is complete, then the engine bay is painted. Engine bay satin black, use a hardened paint.

Hopefully you recorded any paint both under & inside the car for reference? There are constant variances in the underside colour as again it was the left over paint from the drums being mixed to produce whatever colour came out. Could be anything from almost black to a green/grey.

May have to do a tech article for this subject.. Drool

Thanks for the replys,
I do remember the paint being a burgundy black ,didn't realise they varied like that I would have just gone black if you hadn't told me.
So just to be clear the body is done before engine bay but after seam sealer and sound deadener?
What is the most accurate sound deadener?
The car will be raven black so I dont think the bleed will matter.

I just made a rotisserie and mounted the car in it this morning, I will snap some pics and post them tonight,

Just another quick question, is there any seam sealer applied to the seams, torque boxes etc on the underside of the car?
Thanks
Graeme
