  1. need photos of how the shoulder harness was meant to be stowed. Can anyone provide me with a few with detail? Thank you.
  2. Over three years ago after completing the drive train mechanical rebuilds I was ready to sell my 71 because I knew if i kept her I could not just leave the body and paint alone. You see I had done a rotisserie restoration of my 1968 Fastback some 12 years earlier and it came out so nice that the bar was set and I also knew what I would be getting into should I keep it. I actually struck a deal to sell the 71 with a guy from England when my son stepped in and said "Really? your going to sell the Mach 1?" with a look of incredulity and then he proceeded to reminded me that this was the car that I taught him how to drive a manual in. I told him that if I was to keep it, he would have to agree it would be a father-son effort and a chance for me to learn the boy some things and have him around me more. Also that we were going to retain as much of the original car and we were going to do EVERYTHING down to the paint and color sanding. So I cancelled the deal to sell it and the project began around there same time as college did for him, so he did help; however, it was a mere fraction of what I had hoped and I ended up doing 98%. I could not be happier with the results. I finished it yesterday and it looks amazing! I hope you guys enjoy it as much as we do and I encourage anyone who is considering taking on this type of thing to go for it! you won't be sorry. 1971 Mach 1 M Code 351 4 barrel, 4 speed, numbers matching.
  3. can anyone post a few photos of the correct way to attach the original shoulder strap seat belt above the window and the parts necessary for this. Thank you
  4. Does anyone know what the official name and purpose of these are? I am assuming they are stops for the hood when opening or closing. Also did they originally have a protective plastic or rubber piece on the top? Anyone? Thanks
  5. Great job Paul :goodpost: Paint and pin striping are the only 2 things I wouldn't be game to have a crack at :D Shane

  7. Hope this helps anyone about to install stripes on their 71-73 Mach 1. I sure could have used this. Good luck.
  8. Well after three years of working on my 71 Mach 1 I'm actually ready for final paint. Can some one post some detailed photos of where the lower blackout meets the color and where the black meets the color around the cowl area. Just want to make sure I get this right. Thanks a ton!
  9. Mike, Thanks so much. Mine seems to hang over at least 1/2" on each side and I can't figure it out.
  10. Can anyone post a few photos of what a properly fitted bumper looks like at the fender extensions, particularly how much overhang it has? Thanks. This is a 1971 with urethane bumper. Thanks
  11. Sorry it's a 71 mach 1 M code. and Thanks!
