88 Mustang turbo 5.0 project

Post by 1ofakindgt on March 26th 2012, 12:23 am

The project a turbo 5 liter mustang puts down 450 rwhp on 8psi. Problem is paint is completely gone looks like some hack painted it and forgot the clear coat or something. Ive been reading for hours on here but I still dont know where to start cause everyone starts from a different point. The only part of the car that has clear is the fenders because they came from a different car. So because the car is mostly clear free what grit sandpaper should I start with to get it ready for a coat of primer. The body is rust free and really dent free. After couple coats of primer what are steps I should take to start first coat of paint. I have always wanted a yellow fox so I think im going with a rustoleum yellow probably roll on or is spray can easier. I feel stupid but I know nothing and im sure this is probably laid out in another forum somewhere I didnt see. Thanks

I cant post pictures yet cause im a new guy it says so I will post some in 7 days.

Anyway thats what im starting with so if anyone could give me a run down of steps start to finish and materials for each step. Or point me to a forum that has all this thanks.
