This next build Im doing is of the first love of my life. My very first car. I had seen it sitting in an uncles field and had been parked there for years. We bought it and my step dad and I brought it back to life. I am looking forward to building this one and the memories it brings back. I will be building it a little beefer than mine was. Mine was not bone stock but I will go beyound what mine was. I will be building this one the way I always dreamed I could have built mine!!
I am starting with the AMT 1971 Ford Mustang Mach1. I can tell it will need to be readied as it has some amount of flash and mold lines. I will TRY and take pics as I go. Wish me luck as I am not as skilled as some of you guys, but will do my best.

It's all about the process, the fun, and the sharing. Bring it on and don't look back!

After the first washing and sanding, then you apply the primer. Now I put first coat of paint, do you guys sand inbetween coats or not?
