Black Color Change Update

Ok, I have identified everything that needs to be colored in order to complete my color change.  This process is not a short one and is not for the faint of heart.  :)

Ok, so maybe that is a bit dramatic, but it takes some time to do.

In this post I am covering what I have done thus far and what is left to do.  I am also explaining some of the things that I found that were broken as well as the you might as well change it while you are in there items.

The Seats Are Finished

In an earlier post I discussed that I was changing the color of my interior of my car from grey to black.  I posted some previews of some of the stuff that I have done.  Since this time I have finished the the seats, but they have yet to be installed in the car.

Updated The Visors

As I have been working on the 86 Mustang, I have come across the need to go to the junk yards and get parts.  I know "Go Figure".  :)

Well this past weekend, I was out there and figured while I was there I could look for a drivers seat and some sun visors for the 95 if I could get them pretty reasonable.  As you are probably aware, I am trying to sell the 95 so I really don't want to put any more money into it than I have to.  This is just one of those things where I think it will really help it sell.

I found the heater control for the 86 and I was walking around the junk yard and stumble upon a 95 that had really nice visors in it.  I snapped those up as fast as I could and installed them last night.  They look so much better.  It is hard to explain.  It is literally like night and day.

It looks much better now.

Explorer Engine Swap: In Pictures

I just realized that I never really posted a lot of pictures during the engine swap process.  This post is designated to show all of the pictures I took during the engine swap process.

Testing The Color Change

I had been reading and researching what it was going to take to convert the mustang interior from grey to black.  I had attempted to do this one time before when I had an old 76 Ford Truck, but I really didn't know what I was doing back then.  It caused some really undesireable results in spots, but it was effective.

I now know what I had done wrong those so many years ago and I am not going to make the same mistake again.  When I was looking at my interior, I noticed that the passenger side panel on the rear had been broken and needed to be fixed.

Topless Tuesday 6/5/2012

I really haven't forgotten about topless tuesday.  It is still in the back of my mind and I keep forgetting to take pics of the car out and about.  Honestly, I am more interested in selling the red car right now and that has been taking priority.

With that said, I am going to share a pic of my 86 after I first got it.  (so it is old and not from today)

As it sits, my car currently has no seats and isn't drivable.  You will get more updates about that at a later time.
