  1. I found these videos on youtube, looks like this could be an option. The foxbody unit seems to have enough clearance on the top of the tank, just need to know if it would work with the Holley Sniper. https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=71-73+mustang+efi+fuel+tank&docid=608021125539772944&mid=55C4F14D6B50BAC4A63D55C4F14D6B50BAC4A63D&view=detail&FORM=VIRE https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=71-73+mustang+efi+fuel+tank&docid=608052294114556508&mid=126CCAD5C88A4B195739126CCAD5C88A4B195739&view=detail&FORM=VIRE
  2. Forget the foam tape, use the strip caulk.
  3. Does anyone know if a in tank stock fuel pump housing hanger from a Fox body Mustang would work in the 71-73 fuel tank, where the vapor return line goes on top of the tank? If so, would it work with the Holley Sniper Efi? Like this one
  4. This is who did mine www.boosterdeweyexchange.com They are out of Oregon. Send them yours and they rebuild it. Ryan
  5. Looking good Mike! Looks like you went with the Vdo gauges too. Did you get the senders with them? I messed up and just bought the gauges, now I’ve been trying to find the right senders to go with them. Ryan
  6. I got my Champion radiator today so I thought I would test fit it. I used the stock brackets top and bottom using the outer holes. No issues, no modifications. Ryan
  7. Looking good! Is the front hood trim a reproduction? I ran into this on mine with the non Ford tooling reproduction part. I ended up getting the Ford tooling piece, fit was much better. On the hood, my reproduction hood had the arch in the middle. I ended up using shims under the fender bolts to get a better fit. Fit was much better. Ryan
  8. Great video! I like how you are documenting the progress. I wish I could have documented mine like that. Love the green too. Is it going to be all green or stripes too? Ryan
  9. They are US Mags Bandits rims, front 18x8, 4.5 back spacing, rear 18x9 5.25 back spacing. Tires are Nitto extreme nt555, frt 245/45/18 and rear 285/40/18. Suspension on the front is stock wiith 1" lowering coils and rear is stock leafs. No rubbing issues. In the rear there is room to go wider with more back spacing. Hope this helps. Ryan
  10. That’s going to look great! I wish I had all your energy. You’ll have yours back on the road in no time. Ryan
  11. I’m going to need a c4 neutral safety switch for my 72 Mustang. I see there is a Scott Drake branded and a Dennis Carpenter brand. Does anyone know which one is the best or if there is a difference? It seems that some of the Scott Drake stuff that I have bought in the past is actually made by someone else and just has his name on it. Thanks Ryan
  12. Thanks for the tips on the rear window David, I’m not going to use the foam tape either. The window is pretty much ready to be installed, just have to wait until I can get some help. On the sealer though you said 3m 8590, did you mean 3m 8509? I have the 8509, says it’s a non hardening compound. On the engine I waited because I knew this would be a long term project. I bought the car in 2006 and have been working on it off and on these years. I’m waiting on a quote from the engine builder now. I was trying to decide whether to go with a 429/460 like I did with my red Mach or just put the 302 b
  13. Made some progress in the last couple months. I got the seats upholstered. Over all the front seat foam was in decent shape, I had to add a little foam to the edges. The rear I added an extra layer of foam to fill it out. I went with the TMI premium standard interior, this was standard on my car, someone had swapped the original front seats with the deluxe interior seats. I also started tearing down the engine, had the windshield installed, polished the rear window trim moldings and installed the weatherstripping seal on the rear window. I’ll be installing the rear window sometime when I can
  14. Looks like to the fuel tank sending unit. Grommet goes in the trunk drop off. Ryan
  15. A 10” wide rim with 5 1/2” backspacing will work
  16. Stunning paint! That’s going to look good when it’s done. Ryan
  17. 15x10 should work with the 275/60/15’s with the right backspacing. There are others running that combo. If you do a search on 15x10 there are threads that can get you the right backspacing.
  18. I have Cragar SS 15x7, 4 1/18”, BS, 255/60/15 on the front and 15x8, 4 1/4” BS, 275/60/15 on the rear. The front rub slightly on the frame when the wheel is fully turned. The rear rubs slightly on the lip. I think with the 245/60/15 on the front it would not rub. The rear needs to be at least 4 1/2” or 5” BS so it would not rub with the 275’s.
  19. That was me who modified the bumper. As for the aftermarket chrome bumpers, I think the fitment is pretty much the same.
