Project 510 – Mirrors & Muffler

Now that the mirrors had been successfully trial-fitted, it’s time for paint. Luckily the car is painted Ford Sno White which is readily available in pressure-pack/rattle can format.

I gave them a few coats of primer, then hit them with colour.

To fit them to the car, I had to put my entire arm through the long opening in the bottom of the door and reach up until I got to the back of the mirrors. Not easy, but it was the only way to do it without removing the window channel trims and rubbers.

Next up, I decided to clean the rear muffler. The body of it was looking old and dirty, while the tip had a couple of different kinds of over-spray, and generally looked ratty.

First the tip was polished using some Autosol paste

Then the body was wiped down with some Prepsol before being hit with a few coats of Chassis Black

The end result, much better than before:
