  1. yes I am running halogens, I have orderd a NOS light switch. so now my question is how to wire it to a resistor or relay? if I wire through resistor then what size? and where do I wire that at? I have no electrical experience as you can tell.

    You will wire through a relay, not a resistor. Use the existing headlight wire feed as the trigger for relay and run a separate power that you can pull from the battery but be sure to protect that with a fuse or circuit breaker. That wiring can all be under hood

  2. It has been awhile since we have been here. Our 71 Mach is getting lots of love on the Falken Tire facebook page. I didn't see one negative comment and she has one 3k likes in 11 hours, I posted a link but that isn't showing. It is just really nice to see the 123's getting love

     

    Yep, sure is a looker! Kudos for putting another 71-73 into the spotlight :)

     

    Any more pics of the car?

     

    There should be some in my garage and also the website 71mach.com http://71mach.com

  4. Yes and love it. It does take some work but starts easier and runs better. The Professional Products unit we used controls timing as well but I think we would go with the Holley or MSD next time. I think there are several on here that have made the swap

  5. Remember when restomods first started appearing at Barrett-Jackson? The TV commentators could not stop going on about how this car was ruined or the value that was lost by not being original and they kept doing so even after the restomods started bringing more money that the originals. Now a well done restomod can bring far more than an original unless that original is a special car. I would never think about yanking a numbers matching motor out of a boss etc. That said I also have no problem making drivetrain or appearance improvements if it means I get the car I want. Our 64 Galaxie has the original block and it is in fine shape yet it is coming out and a new Coyote motor is going in. We know that it will be faster, drive better and get better economy and if we need parts the local auto parts store will have them in stock. Hemming's will of course prefer the old, that is who they are

  6. The new owner of that 69 might be the old owner also

     

    Very true, although the sellers usually have an associate that bids and I am sure there is some "I'll buy yours if you buy mine going on". The reality is the one person that is sure to make money each year is Craig Jackson. Steve picked up a 69 Camaro RS/SS clone which was one of the last cars in the auction. Not a steal but not a bad deal either. There are always dealers waiting to pick up the deals. There were a ton of "phone buyers" yesterday. Steve was high bid on a truck that hung at $13K for quite awhile and when the phone bidder went $14K it hammered sold in seconds. Truck was way underpriced

    sdstang thank you I had read that post. I like the way they went with the carbon fiber look, just not original and that is my theme. I am still curious as to what the backing material is. I am aware that Mustang Market uses the PVC backer. I am not sure what TMI is using and how well it fits the door requirements. I will try reaching out to TMI to get some feedback and possibly pictures.

    Maybe pm 71mach1lady. She has been very helpful in answering my pm's in the past.

    Black PVC is the backside and really the structure, I assume vacuum formed. We used the original wood grain panel as a template for the carbon wrapped ones, the originals would have fit just fine.

  8. we should have set up a meet and greet here. We have been going everyday, living five miles from the show doesn't hurt. All of our Canadian friends said they won't be buying this year but it would have been a good time to sell. Pricing has been odd with some cars bringing way more than they should and other going far under. 1937 Cord sold for $75K, owner wanted $175. Not sure why the Pontiacs are bringing crazy money. Will get some pics of that black 71 posted

  9. I didn't need the windshield and shipping to us is $110 so ended up at about $510 for both door, quarters and rear glass


     

    Call on the phone tell them you saw the glass set they have on ebay for 539.00 and you want to order

    539.00 for the glass 140.00 shipping to a residential address=679.00

    Just a note --the side glass is for manual windows non power


    :thankyouyellow::thankyouyellow::thankyouyellow:

  10. No, not really concerned with the etching. We are getting the rear window pulled and replaced with the correct type seal so we can get the trim to stay down. Everything else looks so good but the mediocre glass brings the rest of it down
