  1. I finished the paint on the engine and trans. I like how it turned out for a little more of a custom look.

  2. UPDATE: OK, we replaced the pump with a NEW (not rebuilt) stock model https://www.macsautoparts.com/1971-1973-mustang-power-steering-pump-with-reservoir-6-cylinder-or-v8-44-851508-1.html (not the Saginaw) and even though it looked great, we replaced the pressure hose too. Post inspection of the hose revealed unrestricted airflow. Fluid inspection revealed about a tablespoon of a very fine milky silvery substance that sank to the bottom. Not granular between the fingers. RESULT: There is currently NO NOISE FROM THE SYSTEM. The car drives like a dream. THOUGHTS: I am cautiously opti

  5. Finally got my a/f and trans temp gauges installed. Did a dry fit on both sides plus the rear of the shifter and the passenger side worked out best. Really no other place to put them. Easy to see and out of the way even for the passenger. Need to finish hooking up the exhaust and I will be back on the road again.

  7. Here is a little update for you, folks - the hood is painted body color now - next week I will apply the template for the TuTone-Blackout and then there will be an end in sight I measured a few original hoods of old threads about TuTone-Blackout so I think I am safe with the original appearance of it. For me that is one of the most important things of the car and I do not want to mess it up by anyone. So I do it by myself and then my paint guy could go on In parallel I found a little treasure - original '73 Ford T5 front turn signal lamps with orange lenses in very g

  8. I copied this from mach71351c 's thread. His pic shows the brace attached to the inner bottom part of the cowl. The other end attaches to the inside lower lip of the dash. Hope that helps you out Trevynd.

  10. David, not everybody believes in, or trust Chiropractors, but as someone who has had some back pain issues, mainly from my past power lifting competition days, along with doing stupid stuff, I have had great relief from Chiropractic and acupuncture. I personally don't go to Dr's for pain relief if I can avoid it, they just pump you up with pills and short term relief. Your choice of course, but all I'm saying is there may be an alternative to pain pills. Reading all your posts, you have had a varied and interesting life, don't give up on your dreams with your Mustangs just yet. Wishi

  11. I was in the same dilemma back in 2016 when I stripped my 71 J Code Vert down for restoration. I wound up having to have both doors chemically dipped to remove the surface rust on the interior of the door (Arizona car... no rust. LOL). I was able to heat up the area behind the door data label and then peel the label off in one piece. I keep it with the paperwork I have for the car and of course, installed a Marti replacement on the restored car...

  13. Just a few updates. I have had only 2 days to work on it. Git a ton of parts coming in next week. Dropped the gas tank, new one coming. Remove brake booster and sent it out fir re build. Pulled a 351C-2V and FMX tranny from a 70 Cougar for new drive. Prepping it to run. Got new water pump, thermostat, hoses, plugs, fuel pump, fuel and brake lines, rotors, calipers, brakes hoses, carpet, refurbished the tail lights and housing and Mach 1 grille. Put a battery in it with no engine. Checked the lights and have a few to replace bulbs. Lowered and raised the top. No binding or problems.

  14. Picked up a 71 vert parts car. Omg the rust but much of the vert unique parts are in pretty good shape plus it has the hood and fender rear trim pieces. Will be posting things on here as I begin tearing it down. Some parts I need (interior rear quarter trim panels, a pillar trim, ac ducting and the ws wiper mechanism that sits in the cowl). Grille seems to be unbroken.

  15. Finally decided to tackle my exhaust. When I got my car 11 months ago the first thing I noticed that I did not like were the turn down exhaust tips. Soon after I got the car I brought it to a shop to have some mechanicals done, fender apron under battery replaced, etc. I also had them paint a rear valance with exhaust cutouts I had picked up, I mounted it when I got the car home. But for the past 9 months or so I kept looking at those empty exhaust cutouts. This has been my COVID-19 project and I broke down to sections with the exhaust being one of the last.
