04 Mustang - Custom color changing paint.

bought the 04 stang today finally. (put it off since i hate red)
so i spent the last couple hours sanding, primering and repainting
each part. wound up using the Dupont color changing paint
black->purple->green

here it is with the flat black primer. almost left it like this too..it's pretty sweet. and i hijacked the dark headlights off one of the other front bumpers. all body panels are stock. the other ground efx are too flashy IMO.


finished. u can see the green/purple sparkles.



with rims.



drool.

nice work. I have that same paint. Trust me. If you lay a coat of the clearcoat that came with it, the car would look 10 times better. Windows look like crap with the black primer.

i plan on clearcoating it. just havent had the time.


BigStang> i picked it up at WalMart. it's made by dupont and comes in a package with 3 cans. black primer, color changing mid coat, and a can of clearcoat. they offer several different schemes, the one i have is purple->green

and i used 400 grit paper. seemed to work out well. roughed it up enough, and didnt really remove any material.

600 might take too much effort to get rough.. but you can try..

here's the paint specs.

when the red isnt shiny.. it will look all dull with tiny hairline scratches. you dont have to sand it much.. just roughen up
the surface so the spray paint has something to stick to.

practice on a spare hood or other unneeded part if you feel a bit sketchy doing it.

Woah woah.. what's with the mad wheel offset.
Is that normal or did you just put the wheels on loose?

I <3 wheels that barely fit in the body.

ah.. finally someone noticed.

i've been working on an adjustable rear offset for rims.
nut is inside the rim, instead of outside. use two to prevent the wheel from spinning off and to provide adjustability.

once i finish it i'll post some pics. but from what i posted, im sure anyone could replicate my idea. it does involve shaving the inner part of the rim hub and jbwelding a nut to it.

this will make your mustang, look like a mustang.
