  2. David, think again about what you've written - all of it. It's all part of a conversation, not just pot shots here and there. Based on all of that, you're basically throwing rocks at people who disagree with your opinion of what people should actually do, and/or those aren't interested in your [overpriced] car (Hey, you so much as admitted to it - tell me I'm wrong). Calling most people 'talkers and not doers.' That kind of pisses me off. I'm sorry, but I didn't exactly 'talk' my car back together. What I didn't already know, I learned here and by actually doing it myself. So many o

  6. Guess it's time I made an actual build thread for my car. It's since '06 when it was "completed" with a 302, 4 speed and 3.40 TracLoc 8". This is what I started with in 2001, 99% original, very straight, no accidents body. CT road salt had it's way with it over the years. Paid $700 and it ran and drove off a bottle. 302-2V, auto, 2.79 8" rear. PS, PDB, AM radio and that's about it. Car was sold new two towns west from where I live, and spent it's entire life two towns east. This is after all the sheetmetal replacement had been completed, engine compartment detailed, etc

  7. I see more and more various people getting the johnson and johnson vaccine. This touches close to home for my family. My oldest daughter works for Grand River Aseptic in Michigan. Her job is basically production. She travels to Germany alot to purchase machines that produce the drugs, and packages them. She met with several Generals, Dr Fauchie and logistic distribution military personnel. As most know its a one shot vaccine, More important is it can be refrigerated not froze to negative #s. Also the other 2 vaccines only have a shelf life after opening of 6 hours. J and J has a shelf life of

  9. Hey guys, every year again... Oh, wait, it's been two years since then... Sorry guys, I had to wait on the paint guy that long... Diseases and illness of him and many other not Mustang-related things took their time until everything fitted together like a guy and his Mustang! There were times I did not think I will be able to see a result in years! And there were times I weren't be able to hear the word "Mustang"! But: I am back! Tadaaaa! It's cold, ähem, gold outside, everywhere, just in time for christmas! My hard work on the panels has paid off! I

The only real items that are exciting my OCD is... the shifter seems looser than my green one, passenger door is tight - it needs a little more heft to shut it (all the weatherstrip is new I noticed) The ignition leads are a bit yukky -- I'm swapping those Fuel filter close to carb has a slow drip - pipe is a bit perished Nice bits It is clear that this has been super loved No oil -trans-differential leaks ...

  12. Just wanted to share my windshield installation. I notice a couple of other post but there wasn’t much for the front windshield. I hope this will help someone in the future. Some of the prep work I did first was to recoat the two window rest brackets. They originally had a rubber coating on them that was dried out and brittle. I consider different ways to replace it and ended up deciding to use Plasti Dip rubber coating. I dipped each rest 4 times to build up a nice layer. Next, I checked the window frame area to make sure all areas were smooth and clean. I finished up by replacing a

  15. I know you were dying to see pictures of the underside and engine bay, so I took some pictures for you. I had gotten the leaf springs painted the same Chassis satin black, and got them installed next. I also cleaned up painted the axle tube and got it positioned on top of the leaf springs. I was cleaning up the passenger side shock mounting plate and found that it had been repaired with some welds of unknown quality. I've got Don at OMS on the case getting a replacement. I also got the upper and lower control arms installed and also the strut rods and front s

  16. Today, I took Frank out to get his annual inspection for registration, and decided that since it was such a nice day, I’d stretch the ride home out a bit and swung by the Vietnam Memorial at the airport. Since I have a cool new phone, it was such a nice day, and I’d always wanted some pics like this, I figured why not? I've always wanted a pic like this. Perfect day for it. My favorite of the bunch - I love 3/4 views of these cars! This one makes the hood look really big, and those are indeed bug splats on the windshield. Time for a bath! One of these da

  18. ... after more than 3 years of hard, hard restoration work (see my pictures in the GARAGE section) I enjoy with my wonderful wife the power and beauty of our orange 1971 C351-4V RAM AIR MACH 1 just anywhere on the road. This car was forgotten for a long time -burried in a dark garage for 31 (!) years long- and now this MACH 1 is on the road again. Loud and proud. I took these pictures ON THE ROAD in the last months in Switzerland where we live ... we share this with you and we hope you can feel the good vibrations of our MACH 1 world ...

  19. Finally starting to work underneath the car again and got the fuel tank installed. Had to call the wifey to come down and help hold it up so I could position in place then attach the straps. Found my original evap hose with the part numbers still on it. Got the fuel filler neck in and the rubber gasket. Next up is the honeycomb moldings, then onto the rear suspension restoration.

  20. Decided to tackle this little project. The car came with a center console that was in less than desirable shape but not bad enough to toss so I decided to try a few things. First there was a section missing, so I took an extra kick panel I had and cut it to shape the outline of the forward drivers side. then steel wool on all the trim and masked. Sprayed with some duplicolor flexible vinyl paint I believe it was. second, found some textured black abs plastic on eBay (12” square 1/8” thick) and fabricated a cover and made a cup holder where the ash tray was and a usb charge

  25. Decided It was time to tackle this project. First off, there is an awesome video from west coast classic cougar about this, and they also have a service to restore your old ones as well if you don’t feel comfortable enough to tackle it. I had 4 motors, one worked. The other better looking one had a damaged armature which you can see in pics. This would cause it to loose contact and intermittently stop working. I pulled apart the other two which were in far worse condition but was able to clean up the armature and put it in and the second one worked! move on to the last

  28. Years ago, I owned a beautiful 1930 Model A Coupe, and was an active member in the San Fernando Valley Chapter of the Model A Ford Club of America. I drove my car everyday ,although it was as clean or cleaner than most, but no show car. At one point, I actually worked at Thee Antique Ford Shop, in Reseda, for a man who owned four himself, and did concourse restorations, to radiator flushes, on A's and early V8s . Interesting point, is that during this time, the judging standards changed from allowing Cad plated engine hardware, to saying that Black Oxide was now the appropriate fastener

  29. I was looking around facebook market place and saw some 71 - 73 parts. After getting in touch I found out he had sold his Mustang collection and now selling parts he has stage 4 cancer. So I am going to hook up and we can do some drives in the mountains and make his heart race a few more times before he goes. It makes me so sad to see these. They sell their cars because family does not want and they need the money just to live a few more days. I will post up any parts he has after we meet up. Life is too short for sure.

  31. Up and running at last. Primed the oil and fuel and fired it up for the first time yesterday. Started on the first crank and after a slight timing adjustment, runs great. Went for a spin round the block today. Still a few things to tidy up, wheel alignment, brake bleed and check all the electrical after the complete re-wire, full tune-up etc. Took a bit longer on the final assembly as the car came in pieces and being my first Mustang, I learnt the hard way which pieces need to go in first. Some of the reproduction items also don't fit exactly but with adjustments it all came together well. One

  32. My 1971 Mach 1, 429 SCJ, was assembled at the Dearborn plant on 12/11/70, sold on May 14, 1971 in Conover, North Carolina. But the original owner was killed in 1975. So, the Mustang was put in storage and sat unmolested until 1990. It was then completely disassembled (down to a bare shell) and remained that way until 2015 when I purchased it. Took 5 years to rebuild, restore, and reassemble. Finally, in 2020, after 44 years, it's back on the road again where it belongs.

  37. I've said this before on another entry............The new cars do everything better than our old cars,....but who cares? Nobody. Real car people, or, at least "car people", as I have defined in my mind, don't mind the tinkering, the lack of knowlegeable mechanics at their local garage, or the having to special order darned near everything, including tires, for their cars. Others are leasing new cars, perhaps for write-off purposes or maybe work related, but leasing is not owning, it's like dating. Leasing you can walk away from the relationship without being committed to it. Still others, hav

  38. Thanks for all the kind words. I have had those NOS stripes in my closet since 1985. In the picture note that I have used as many original parts as I can. Original 71 Magnum 500s, original Ford spoilers and mounts, front clips all Ford stuff, the Fenders, hood, hood locks, ram air system, grille, and of course the bumper. Rear bumper and hood locks were re-plated. These parts were not original on this car, but they are original. Kcmash

  41. I thought I would start a new thread to cover this subject. Probably over two years ago one of the members ask me to do a rub off of my original Ford painted NASA hood. I did and they made a wrap for their hood. Since then Hemikiller, Dennis got in touch with me. He has the CAD to scan and reverse engineer a stencil that will match my factory layout. Yes every hood is slightly different you cannot be perfect and do your job in about 2 min. on the assembly line. Mine is cocked and hopefully he can adjust the CAD to make the stencil centered and up to you to keep it there. Dennis sent me

  43. In the beginning......A coworker I've known for almost 10 years owned a 1971 Boss 351 he bought in Jan 1977. This car was his baby and for the last 40+ years has tried to faithfully maintain it even though his mechanical skills are limited. So, five years ago he retired and moved with his English wife back to England (he used to be in the Air Force). Before he left he practically begged me to buy his Boss because he knew I could/would take care of it....almost an adoption. In a former life I used to work in the service dept of a new car dealership and possess the mechanical tools and

  44. My money says those two are LS boys. With the 357C they used a high RPM intake with a low RPM cam. :chin: I tested a "Track Boss" intake in the late 80s on a Boss 302. It lost ET and MPH, put the stock intake back on and the power came back. Their definitive assertion that 351C 2V was the head for the street I found amusing. I also laughed out loud when they said the 4V was only good for a race engine turning 7500-8500 RPM. It may have something to do with Edelbrock only making a 351C 2V head. I wish I'd known that 4V heads were no good for the street before I built a 10:1 408C with 4V hea
