  1. Taken last year (2016) [video=youtube]
  2. I wasn't impressed with the Dynacorn tail lamp panel I bought. I took photos of the imperfections of the panel before I sent it back. The holes that were pre drilled around the fuel filler opening were off center by a lot. There was this strange outwards crease above the right tail light opening that wasn't on the left side. The metal looked bumpy and wavy across the flat areas. I thought it was a little rough. Would it work?, yes but you will have to put more time in getting it to look the way it should. Now most of it can be covered up if you chose to have a finish panel and mouldings.
  3. Welcome from NY. I love the colors too. ::thumb::
  4. I don't think the extended length of a different shock is going to make the condition worse by bottoming out on the frame rail. The front strut bar and stabilizer link will help support the suspension and if it did touch , it's not going to hurt it. Unless you are jumping a creek and your suspension is unloaded but then you might have a bigger problem than being concerned if your control arm is touching your frame rail when you land it. :P The extended length range on just those links that I posted are between 12.2", 12.625" and 13.9" They are specifically made for the "73" in those ex
  5. I know what you are talking about. I was wondering the same thing too on my car. I have the original suspension,springs etc. I replaced the front and rear shocks with the KYB gas adjust shocks. The piston travel is a lot shorter than the ones I took off. When the car is jacked up from the front and the wheels are off the floor, it's flattening out the upper bushings. I never remember having an issue when I jacked the car and put it on jack stands with the old shocks. I did a little comparison after I installed my shocks. It seems they make different shaft lengths. Check it out. go t
  6. :thankyouyellow: Austin Vert, I like your idea too for your speaker install. It is much more challenging to find a way to have rear speakers with the fold down seat without cutting holes somewhere. Good job, nice write up too. Video doesn't capture the audio quality but you get the idea. [video=youtube] To one up my trunk mounted enclosure and make it totally hidden, it might be possible to mount the amp on the backside of the board or up on the underside of the rear shelf and recess in the subwoofers, cover over it with the enclosure material. The only problem might be c
  7. When it comes to audio systems for our cars it's a personal choice. Everybody has their own likes and dislikes in what they want to see in their cars. Modern units , Retro style, original stock, it's all good. I thought about this for a long time. I kind of knew what I didn't want in an audio system. I didn't want modern unit in dash, or retro , I didn't want to carry around CD's or cassettes. I tinkered with the idea of mounting a modern style unit in the glove box and use a remote to control the unit. That idea stuck with me the longest and started looking around for a unit that I wa
  8. Looks good. Fits perfectly. ::thumb:: Center gauges looks good too. What did you end up using there. My water temp. gauge doesn't work properly. I need something to replace it with. Right now I have an aux. gauge sitting loose to keep an eye on the temp.
  9. My car on canvas. ( and a large mug ) Got it from Photobucket the last time they had a sale on canvas pictures. The price was low so I figured I'd try it out. I think it turned out pretty good. The print is on a 1-1/2" boxed frame with hanger(s) on the back. This one is 16" x 20" From time to time Photobucket has promotional specials on canvas art and stuff. Right now they have 70% off all décor if anyone is interested. https://secure.photobucket.com/print
  10. Very cool. Sounds like a good time and good eats ::thumb::
  11. Found this available on ebay too. The guy sells a bunch of interesting stuff. He also sells prints but the cool thing is he had the 73 shown with the correct slotted wheels. I asked if he could put on the Magnum 500's instead. No problem. He can change the color of the car, edit and customize the image. Worth a peek if you are interested. http://stores.ebay.com/Maddmax-Design?_trksid=p2047675.l2563
  12. Hello , my name is Rick , I live in Walden, NY and I've been registered here since late October 2014 when I made the decision to search for my Mach 1 . So I'm a little late in my introduction since working on my car over the winter, spring and part of the summer this year. It's finally road worthy and just getting the chance to enjoy it. 1973 Mach 1, Q code 351c, 4v, 4speed Hurst, 3:50 Traction-Lok diff, competition suspension, Deluxe interior, Rim-Blow steering wheel, Magnum 500's - 15x7 , 2B Bright red , 43,000 original miles. I bought it online from MN. I have a friend who lives out th
  13. Thanks. The pictures were taken in Montgomery at the Thomas Bull Memorial Park, ( Orange county park ) I live about 8 or 9 miles from there. They are having a car show there on the 26th of this month. Your shop looks nice. You are in CT? My work takes me to the Brewster / Carmel area at times. I know the area pretty well and all of the body shops on the NY side. Where is your shop?
