  1. I'm 99% mobile and I gotta say it's a billion times better. It was practically impossible to use this site before. I use another major forum (way way way larger than this one) that uses the same Invision forum setup. Works very well over there. Just takes time to get it all flowing smoothly.
  2. Should get my floor seam sealed this weekend. Finally I think I got a lead on a T5 transmission as well. Been slow progress. Working too much.
  3. There are GT40 kit cars out there that are within a normal persons grasp. Sent from my LM-G820 using Tapatalk
  4. As a relatively new homeowner I have had an endless stream of projects that I am constantly doing for the last year. Today made some trim for the kitchen cabinets and did some minor repairs so some drawers would slide in and out better. Repaired an AC duct that was just barely hanging on and was about to fall. Went to Lowes, got some wooden poles for some hammocks I have to put up outside. Cut some ceramic tiles to put in the bottom of a terrarium that will have a Bearded Dragon in it in a few days. Hopefully after the kids go to be tonight I'll get out to the garage and straighten up a bit so that next weekend I can finish up my floors in the car. Sent from my LM-G820 using Tapatalk
  5. I'd like a Pantera, GT40 kit car, or a Superbird/Daytona. Sent from my LM-G820 using Tapatalk
  6. Just curious why you want to switch to manual steering? I had my PS box rebuilt and converted to quick ratio and I also went with a new pulley set up out front that allows me to run a wider belt set up and a different PS pump with lower pressure (got it from CVF Racing). So I still have power steering when I need it but not so much that you don't have any road feel. Im going with an electric steering setup. No pump, no hoses, no fluids. I work on electric steering assist vehicles at work often (many/most new cars are) and am very familiar with whats involved. There is a company that does kits, but I plan on making my own from a Toyota Prius, which has a stand alone ECU making it easier to wire up. I like the way the steering feels in these cars, plus you get assist even if the car isn't running. https://epasperformance.com/ Sent from my LM-G820 using Tapatalk
  7. Looks good. Never heard of them before but then again I don't think I've ever shopped around for one before either. Gonna look them up, gonna swap to a manual box actually. Sent from my LM-G820 using Tapatalk
  8. Yes I just keep going around until all the gaps are filled. No fuel lines on the car, car is stripped down. Sent from my LM-G820 using Tapatalk
  9. When I do overlap joints, I do not make a continuous bead all the way around the perimeter. Takes forever. I usually punch holes around the perimeter of the replacement panel spaced about an inch or so apart and do plug/rosette welds. Then seam seal the top and bottom seam. The plug welds will be plenty strong. You can keep the fuel line in place. You may want to pull it down slightly so its not resting on the area you are welding. Car is 100% stripped down so don't have to worry about fuel lines. I did actually plug weld it in a few spots to hold it in place and I know it would be strong enough if I just did that all the way around, however I did the other side this way when I was less experienced and I want them to match. Only have maybe two more times around to fill in the gaps anyways. Sent from my LM-G820 using Tapatalk
  10. Finally got out to finish welding in my floor pan. Ran out of wire though, so I guess I gotta wait until the weekend. Been a few years since I last welded and it took a while to make anything that looked half decent. I guess it doesn't matter, nobody is gonna see this anyways and its plenty strong.
  11. Around maybe 16-17 years ago I saw this one in a magazine when it was still being built. Was supposed to be an example that you can put air suspension on anything. I don't know if it qas privately owned or commissioned by UPS but hey, still interesting lol. https://i.pinimg.com/originals/c2/78/5e/c2785e5712667d6c25118c65ffc0098b.jpg Sent from my LM-G820 using Tapatalk
  12. That would be pretty cool. Would you hook it up to something like a manual choke slider in the cab, or find a way to hook it up to the carb linkage so it would cycle as the carb's butterflies do? I was thinking attached to the carb linkage to open when the butterflies do. I dont know, maybe I'll see what I can fabricate when the time comes. I just know that on engines with big cams that dont produce a lot of vacuum, the flaps probably won't work correctly. Sent from my LM-G820 using Tapatalk
  13. I've often thought it would be cool to have some sort of mechanical cable setup where it opens and closes the flaps with throttle input the same way a bugatcher scoop does. Would just be for cool factor I suppose. Sent from my LM-G820 using Tapatalk
  14. Reading through this topic, I find myself in the "make it how you want it" category, but I am a younger guy and have no fond memories of how things were back in the day. Going to do chrome bumper/painted trim. Boss hood treatment, Mach 1 grill, 71-72 Mach 1 side stripes/lettering, and '73 Mach 1 trunk stripe. My car is a '72 Sportsroof, a relatively rare one too lol.

  15. Always ran mine open. Was hoping to help it run cooler. Didn't really help. Plenty of 100+ mph time and didnt ever think the hood was going to fly off or anything like that. I did however, get stranded one night because it was pouring rain and the water coming into the engine bay shorted the coil. Sent from my LM-G820 using Tapatalk
