69 Dearborn Undercarriage Finishing - A Guide

Not specifically related to 69 Dearborn Cougars only but thought I would share this over here. Note there are a few slightly different details for the Cougar - generally related to the front wheel well and undercarriage sound deadener applications but most of the info should still be helpful

This is an article I've written and rewritten a dozen times over 20 years. Found it was easier to have a prepared document when I got questions related to the subject rather than going through the whole thing every time. It proved to be a challenge as your always discovering new details, sub patterns and such along the way so it has only been share privately in the past since I never felt it was finished. Not sure anything I do is completely

Also just limiting the coverage to one area of the car was sort of difficult when you want to help and describe everything that was going on at that point at the car plant. See allot of related requests here so thought it would be a good time to try and wrap it up then focus on some of the other years and plants. Hope some here find it useful in there related endeavors.

For those that are also members of CMF the article is also located in the Library there with all the other articles listed by model year as well as other related articles such as how to reproduce the dolly marks that may be helpful.

Its a Big file with plenty of pictures so will take some time to load. Be patient :)

Hope it helps others

Thanks for looking

Hopefully and eventually I will be able to get through all the classic years and plants. The order is based on demand that has been created over the year. The 69 Dearborn was needed since it served the Mustang, Shelby and Boss cars. Next three will cover the 65-67 San Jose since there are always a need that covers both those Mustangs and the first three years of Shelby's .... from there ...... We'll see
