  1. Sad, but winter is almost here in Ohio. Tomorrow 2 to 6 inches of snow is forecast. So yesterday I took my Mach out for one last spin before bedding it down for the winter. Time to get back on restoring my '66 convertible. One item of interest here in Ohio, this past year a front plate is no longer required, only a rear plate is needed. Since my Mach came with a front plate holder from the dealer (factory?), I decided to find a suitable front plate. I found the "Mach1" plate on line. It actually came in different color combinations. I think it suits my car just fine. Mac

  5. I agree, the winter weather here in Ohio limits a car buffs out door activity. It does give you time to catch up on car upkeep if you have a heated garage. As a retired Reznor employee, I was able to purchase a 110,000 BTU ceiling mounted furnace very reasonable. Yes 110,000 BTU is way over kill but the price was excellent and it does heat up my 4 car garage very quickly. So just as you stated it gives you the chance to stay active working on your cars once the snow starts to fly.

  8. Hi again.I'm pretty much fighting with myself over if I should cut holes in the boxing plates to make the cowl drains functional. The thing is, I have come up with at least 5 or 6 different ways to have the drains work and the truth is I hate them all,no matter how much I make them look like they are supposed to be there.I still hate them.I'm a very details oriented person.Details matter and all of the small details for me add up to the big picture.And even though nobody will ever see the holes or the supports for that matter,if I put the holes in,it will bother me. So if I get a little water in the cowl from washing or get caught in the rain I can just put a rag down in there and get the water out. It's never going to rust out again anyway. I am leaning toward how KK would have done it,because.................race car. Oh...........and I really can't give accurate dimensions on them because of the nose drop, the tops of the aprons are shorter than stock.But they are 23 1/2'' and 22 1/2'' long from the end of the cowl to the front of the shock tower.They follow the shape of the car and are 16 gauge.

  9. I got both calendars and I also ordered a coffee mug. They arrived here yesterday. They are very nice and I really like the large calendar. Thanks again to Rocketfoot for putting this all together!

  10. To be honest, I never like shooting the jambs first and then the rest of the car. Many many people do it that way but its just not my preference. I like to shoot the shell itself. And I shoot the doors, fenders, hood and trunk separate. I like this way because then all your bolts and striker plates don't get paint all over them. Looks much more professional and nice. Always bugs me when door latches and strikers and bolts are painted that aren't supposed to be painted. Both ways has it advantages and disadvantages. If you do have to let the car sit for a time before paint, I would shoot it with epoxy primer. If you use the urethane primer it has more of a tendency to attract moisture during sitting if its not top coated. Epoxy primer doesn't attract as much moisture but when you do go to paint it, you will need to sand the whole car to get good tooth. Then re-shoot with epoxy primer/sealer then base then clear. But if you wanted to shoot jambs you could. And shoot the window openings. And back side of doors. You then could pretty much install the entire interior and windows minus trim. But, when you go to paint the rest of the car you will have to be VERY careful taping everything off. Keep soft tape edges at the jambs. Wet sand the edges of the paint and that got on the outer shell, then sealer then base then clear. Its a lot of extra work. Would be really nice to just be able to shoot it now, but I understand your problem with having to move it and painters schedule. There's a ton of different ways you can go about it. I'm sure others will have more info for ya. Keep up the great work, the car is looking awesome. Here's a couple of pics showing both ways.
