1960 Ford Falcon: 7 Days to Go - Beginning Paint Homebuilt Ford Falcon by Greasegirl #5 We wanted to add a third layer of primer before laying color today. After a trip to register and insure the Falcon as well as pick up more supplies - we were back at it in the garage for a full weekend day. By the time the primer had dried and I'd painstakingly sanded the surfaces smooth (which took MUCH longer than I'd expected) it was already dark. With limited lighting in the ...
1960 Ford Falcon: 8 Days to Go - Primer Homebuilt Ford Falcon by Greasegirl #4   Tonight was primer night!

With a sudsy bucket of cleanser, I went to work while Ethan began cleaning suspension parts. It's amazing when you've done so much sanding and scraping - that you'll still find more! After I'd gone over the entire engine bay with cleanser followed by water - then ...
1960 Ford Falcon: Rush to Finish Homebuilt Ford Falcon by Greasegirl & Ethan The last time you heard about the Ford Falcon project, I was getting everything off the engine in order to pull it... that was nearly a year ago! In between here and there you've hardly heard from me. It's been quite a year - not only did I start a new job (in which I'm writing articles every day), I got married, and moved. Those things haven't kept me from the garage ...
