Stumptown 1991 Ford Mustang GT
Posted by Mr Mike on Monday, April 25, 2022 4:25 PM

My new project is from the Stumptown TV series starring Cobie Smulders as Dex Parios and was taken from the graphic novel of the same name.  I bought this kit which is a close representative to the 1991 Mustang GT a couple of years ago during the height of the Covid pandemic.  The wheels will be changed to the 5 spoke Pony wheels and my paint will be Tamiya TS-18 Metallic Red with a grey interior.  The series was renewed for a 2nd season, but was ultimately cancelled since new episodes would be ready in time.

Dex Parios will return...

While I am awaiting parts for other projects, I went ahead and assembled the engine and the body.  The engine will be painted with grey paint and the body will be painted with Tamiya TS-18 Metallic Red and then weathered to look dirty and unwashed.

It was pointed out to me that the side skirts were installed wrong and that person is correct!  My Bad!  I was able to remove the side skits and install them on the proper sides.  I removed the chrome from the valve covers, intake manifold and induction system.  After over a day in Easy-Off Oven Cleaner, the chrome and some of the lacquer coating was removed, but not all of the lacquer coating.

I removed the chrome from the valve covers, intake manifold and the intake system.  The distributor and the cylinder heads have been drilled out for plug wires.  The resin Pony wheels are soaking in Bleche Wite Tire Cleaner and tomorrow I will scrub them with Dawn Dish Detergent and an old toothbrush.

I got my wires cut and installed in the distributor.  The resin Pony wheels have been cleaned and painted with Tamiya TS-17 Gloss Aluminium.
