This is my friend Hink Hinkley's 1965 Mustang Fastback with a true candy raspberry paint job with gold metallic flake in the paint. The paint looks amazing but is in need of some light polishing to remove years of wax build-up as well as swirls and scratches.

After we polish the paint to perfection we're going to apply the GTechniq EXO if it's here by then, if not then we'll use C1 Crystal Lacquer.

Hink will be bringing his Mustang to Autogeek today so I can inspect the paint.

I'll try to get some really good shots of the gold flake...

I would SO love to be there. Wife's birthday. Uh... oh well, next time! :)

Have fun!

Hey Mike, my girlfriend Trista and I would love to come out to this. I told her about the last one and with as much of a car enthusiast as she is I should have figured she would have been interested in going. If you don't mind, sign us both up for this one please...

Paint looks good to the untrained eye, you have to know how to really inspect paint to understand its true condtion...

Before Shots
Look closely at the car, while it looks great we're going to remove all the fine swirls and put a true show car finish on this car and when I post the "After" shots compared to these you're going to see the gloss completely maxed out.




Here's what the paint really looks like if you know how to inspect...

Hey Mike,

Did you see my post above about having myself and my girlfriend Trista added to the list for this week? We'd like to come out!

Saw it just haven't updated yet. Did so just now...

Hink is dropping his Mustang off on Wednesday so I'm going to knock out all the intricate buffing so all we'll have to do is the major panels.

Then clean the paint for application of EXO and then apply it, should be a lot of fun.

It will be great to have you and Trista here to help out...

I'll be there....
