  1. Well said David. Each judge may view it differently, lighting could play a roll also. Keep in mind Fords attempt was to make these parts as near black as feasible. Just look at as many untouched original parts as possible. Junkyard research is valuable knowledge, take advantage of that when possible.

  2. The start up ignition feed is from the solenoid, the running ignition feed is from the ignition switch. I believe that the circuit runs through a voltage reducing resistor wire. What year do you have, and does it have a factory tach?

  3. Not sure about troubleshooting the msd, buy I typically use a timing light to see if my coil is energized I clamp the center primary on the cap. Also check voltage at the coil primary.

  4. Jeff is the part you are referring to in this picture? I have one available. PM if someone needs I t.Screenshot_2016-06-14-21-46-54.thumb.png.408bbf01cc761d0b973db8d97441c747.png


    The metal bumper reinforcement panel that fits between the front bumper and the radiator support for sure!!!


    The sheet metal panel for coupes and verts would be a good part to repop as well if Dynacorn isn't about to pop one out.

  5. Welcome from Virginia. There are a couple local Mustang Clubs in your area. Mustang Club of Tidewater and Southeastern Virginia Mustang Club. Both should have Facebook accounts.

  6. Yes, on a white top, I have used gutter sealant. It's usually only available in the metal gutter section of your home depot or Lowes store. It's in a aluminum squeeze tube. Very nasty if you get it on you. I think that it's urethane.

    Just noticed a microscopic pinhole puncture in the fabric of my brand new convertible top (not my 73, but my 69). Considering it's a new top, I'll be heading back to talk to the installer, but in the meantime the question is if anyone has heard of or used something to seal up something like this. We're talking minuscule drop of sealant if that's the easiest solution.


    Some sort of superglue that dries clear and won't be affected by UV (i.e. discolor) ? Top is 'Ford White' which is not so much a bright white as a creamy white.

  7. The bumper brackets are definitely 73. On the fenders the difference can be determined by drawing a horizontal line forward of the fender marker lights. A 73 fenders have a taller brow molding and stop about level with the top of the marker light. On the 71-72 the brow trim stops about a inch and a quarter higher. From your pictures, I believe the fenders are correct. The valance appears to have turnsignal mounts in them, also correct for 71-72. The hood latch is correct. I believe only the bumper brackets are incorrect. You can probably sell them for 150 if perfect. Your missing parts are available. I have all from a recently parted 71. PM me if interested.
