    Faded DIY caliper paint. Repaint red or silver? When I bought my car the stock brake calipers were painted red, and have faded over time. I'm indifferent to the red, so should I repaint them red or go with an OEM look and paint them silver?

    Hello, all. In preparing to sell my 2004 Mustang convertible, I am looking to get some touch-up paint, and checked the paint code is UA on the door label. My problem is that when I check online shops, for some reason the kits that come up for the UA code all say "Not compatible with your...

    I love seeing people get creative with customizing the appearance of their cars. One way to do this is through non-factory colors. Its a nice way to make your Mustang Unique. Although part of me is a sucker for original, I think some of the best looks are non-factory. I'd like to see some...

    Hey Y'all! I've been doing a lot of research lately (as usual) and I've been bitten by the engine bay dress up bug. I've already decided I'm going to paint my radiator cover to add a bit of a spice to the engine bay appearance. If that goes well, I'll paint my CAI tube and maybe even my intake...

    I'm starting this post to add myself to the list of people who have had this issue. cryin.gif I know there is no permanent fix. But I'm going to take it in and see what they say anyway. I will update after. On the upside I haven't had the ABS freak out lately.

    Hey, posted a few weeks ago. Started doing the work and need some advice. In the pic attached, on the body filler that I have sanded down with 80 grit after being laid then sanded smooth with the rest of the panel 150 grit. Does it look right? The panel feels smooth but I'm still skeptical if I...

    I'm going to start with saying I'm 16 years old, I just got my first car, a 1995 Ford Mustang, and I know absolutely nothing about vehicles in general. This may sound dumb but we all gotta start somewhere! My paint is red, and not the original paint. It used to be burgundy or something...

    Hi paint experts. I want to apply 2k Urethane clear coat from an aerosol can to get the added durability that 2-pack offers. My question centers on whether this will be compatible over OEM clear coat with local touch up'd areas using lacquer-based touch up paint such as the Duplicolor product...
