PostSubject: Painted my junk.... Finally.    Wed Nov 03, 2010 11:29 am

So I have been busy lately, making money at work and then working on my junk at home, I got an 8.8 swaped into the wagon, bucket seats and a console out of a mustang(No pics of that yet..)

This is what it looked like before if you guys forgot.



Its hard to see if the pictures but the QP on the driver side had a huge dent in it that was filled in with bondo by the PO, and the passenger front door also was quite dented. I left alot of the dents alone, I'm not a body man, and I think they give the car character, lol.

So I stipped the car down, and sanded the crap out of it, filled in some of the small dents. We(My Dad, myself and a friend) hung plastic from the ceiling in the garage, and wet the floor down when I painted it. Not very good pics, its pretty small in there lol. I painted the front end separate.



So this is what I ended up with, its no where near perfect, but thats not the point. I drive it daily, and its going to get messed up. Its the Duplicolor black with metallic clear.



I thought that last one was a nice pic with a friends mustang.


I am stoked with it, hopefully it stands up to the abuse of daily driving lol. Cool

Thanks for looking guys.

^Thanks, and yes I am very happy with it lol. I have had it grey primer for 2 years now, I am sick of the jalopy comments lol.


I am happiest that its done though lol, body work is not my favorite. My race car will get alot more attention, but I wont be trying to do that one in a weekend. Cool



Now, suspension time, I just put in some MAC rear low control arms, and I picked up a 1.25" Front sway bar, to go with the rear sway bar from a turbo coupe I picked up. Then I will be upgrading the brakes.

Looks sharp man! I wish I could track down a set of those mesh style rims. But yeah the wagon looks good and I bet you chew up a few ricers with it.

How much of the Duplicolor paint did it take?
What kind of gun did you use?
Looks real good.

I have a set of those rims.
How much you think they are worth to you?

Thanks guys, I love the rims too, but I want a more road racy set of tires, to go with the big sway bars and Ford racing "C" springs I plan to install in the spring. Ricers are a joke now Wink


I used about 3 quarts of primer, 3 quarts of black and 3 of clear. 1 clear was metallic clear. My gun is a 70$ gun I bought from Princess Auto(Our Harbor freight) I have maybe 250-300 bucks in the paint job.

I don't know, maybe a couple hundred bucks?

But yeah I had MAACO quote my Zephyr for like 400 bucks and thats going back to stock color or any color I choose. But 300 bucks isn't bad for a home paint job.

Yourr wagon looks great. I saw the video you madewhen you first put the 302 in. I'm currently putting a 90' roller motor in my Zephyr Villiager Wagon. Pulled the injection off and put a 4 barrel on it, painted the block ford blue so itlooks like a 289. But it's got an E series cam , long tube hearers and under drive pullies. It's mostly left over parts from my 90 LX that I put a stroker in. It's stoke silver with the wood grain, and a roof rack. Should be a kick in the but to chase the 'fast n furious' little dicks !!!

You know, around hear those little rice rockets stay far away from me......Dont know why, maybe the rumble of the exhaust and the car wobbles from the big cam....
Though I did beat the snot out of a '04 or so vette .....that was pretty cool.

Yeah, the Mustang with the 347 is fun, but the roll bar and the cowl hood kinda gives it away. But the Zephy should be a real sleeper.It's got 2 1/2" pipes out to the rear bumper that I ran with the 6 cyl. and a set of Mustang Turbines, and 2 " lowered springs. The rest looks stock as hell. There,s some pics in the site some where, under Patwagon when it had the 6 in it. I might just put the stock silver paint back on it. Just depends how it runs. Later Pat

Naw, I'm in Hamilton, Ontario. The tires are P265/50R15's on the rear, and 205/50R15's on the front. The rears are to wide and scrape, and the fronts are to small lol. I want to get P245/50R15's for the rear and P225/50R25's for the front next spring.

Thanks a bunch, your wagon should be a fun ride too. Its far to much fun beating on people on the streets. My favorite guys to beat are the G35's and the BMW's, the other night I took a new M3, and a newish Jag with the supercharged engine. Good times Cool lol
