Acid Dipping 1967 Mustang Fastback Project – An Alternative to Media Blasting

Hi everyone! I just wanted to share a quick update of the 1967 Mustang Fastback project, since I just got it back from the acid dipping place. Here’s the video showing the results:

As you can see, the car is clean and bare metal now. There is a clear coat rust inhibitor that is preventing the car from flash rusting. After I perform the necessary metal repair/metal replacement, we’re going to epoxy primer the entire car, before starting in on the blocking and sanding, painting, and assembly. If you want to check out the video build thread, here’s the YouTube Playlist. Here’s a few more photos of the car after the acid dip.

As you can see from the video and photos, there’s quite a bit of rust holes that will need to be repaired/replaced. I’ve already ordered a new full floor from Dynacorn, which will rectify the issues in the floor and trunk pans. Since I’m going to be running a 6 speed Tremec transmission, I’ll need to modify the transmission tunnel a bit anyway.

Next up: New Seat Upholstery!
