A Labor of Love on the Old Ford Mustang: Part 3

Old Ford Mustang Restoration Part 3: Media Blasting

But first, have you read Part 1 and Part 2?

He didn’t know if he would have to deal with a bunch of hidden rust holes before continuing. When he got the car back from Kremers Painting and Graphics, he was very pleasantly surprised! The car was in remarkable shape, especially after decades of sitting in storage.
