A Labor of Love: Part 5

In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, it only makes sense to continue on with the Mustang story: Dave’s 10 year project for the love of his life. If you’re just joining us, take a moment to catch up and see the pictures in Part 1, Part 2, Part 3 and Part 4.

Mustang Restoration Part 5: Paint

We left off last month when Dave had just gotten all the pieces of the car back from Dekker’s Collision. The skilled body shop had painted the car Phoenician Yellow. Here is the beautiful paint job on the car shell:

Dave anxiously and carefully brought the pieces home and put the body back together. It was so rewarding to see the mustang starting to come together!

He dressed the car up with new fenders, lights and an antique license plate.

For 10 years now, Andrea had been dreaming of cruising through town on a warm summer’s night to go get an ice cream cone. Thankfully, her dream should come true this summer as the Mustang is on schedule to be done this spring!

The inside of the Mustang is looking just as good as the outside. Next month we will bring you Part 6: Interior. You definitely don’t want to miss out on those pictures! To all of our loyal readers: Thank you for following this story! This car is very special to our family and Dave is thrilled to be able to share it with you all.

With it being Valentine’s Day, I want to challenge our readers to look for ways this weekend to reach out to others. Be kind and helpful to someone, weather you know them or not. Put forth the extra effort to do something nice for someone else. It will bless that person and it will bless you. Happy Valentine’s Day!

At Grandville Trailer, we’re pullin for ya!
