Since its introduction, Project Blue Collar has been through a lot to get it running under its own power. We installed a completely new fuel and ignition system on our project Fox Body Mustang. We also replaced a few other non-functioning components such as door handles, hatch struts, and ignition switch. Now that it is running, it is finally time to send our project Mustang off to paint!

Before we send Project Blue Collar off to get a fresh new paint job, we needed to do some teardown. We decided to remove the bumper covers, ground effects, moldings, quarter windows, and other miscellaneous parts to make things easier on the body shop.

We took this time to give everyone a quick update and a close look at production to this point. Get ready because the next time you see our Fox Body Mustang, it will no longer be plagued by peeling clear coats, dents, and dings. You can follow the complete Project Blue Collar build in the link below!

If you're taking your Fox Body Mustang to the paint shop, you want to make sure and remove as much as you can before you drop it off. That way it will save you a little bit of money by not having to pay your body guy to take your car apart. Plus it will give you the opportunity to get the best end result possible.

Things you want to take off include the headlights, the tail lights, rear spoiler, front and rear bumper covers, emblems, body side mouldings, exterior trim, cowl panel, windshield, and rear glass reveal moulding, ground effects, handles, blocks, mirrors, and quarter windows.


You want to send your car to the shop with a set of wheels that you may not necessarily care about. Because the likelihood is that they're going to get paint over-spray on them.
