  1. I picked up the seat brackets from Griffin Motorworke today. Nicely fabricated pieces. Hopefully I will get to check fit in a few days
  2. Fan, fan clutch and shroud went in this morning. Took a fair amount of surgery to the radiator to make the shroud clips be just right.
  3. I made up an engine wiring harness, started out with an alloy metal products engine harness and commenced butchery to support my added gauges, relocated coil and electric choke. Tapped the side of an oil pressure switch riser to 1/8”NPT (so I could screw in 2 devices). Got it mounted with a new pressure switch for the idiot light and a sender for my Westach oil pressure gauge. Next I pulled apart the steering column and cleaned all the old grease out of it. Took the upper parts of the column and prepped them for paint. Last thing was a test fit of my old fan shroud. It
  4. The time has come for the steering column to be black. Since it is a high wear area subject to keys and such what suggestions are there for a durable finish?
  5. Made up a bracket to mount an MSD coil and a terminal block in place of the starter solenoid. Slowly putting the wiring back in the car and tweaking it to my build. One of these days I will be able to start the car by turning a key in the ignition switch.
  6. Yes- But I am going with Recaro seats instead. Griffin motorwerke in Berkeley CA U.S.A. may be some help. They sell brackets that seem to be pretty nice, and whoever they get them from has a specific 71-73 Mustang bracket.
  7. I do not know what they are really called. I do have both of the originals off my 71’ but they are evading me at the moment. It was within the last 2 months that the repop ones became available. They look very nice, I saw them on one of the Facebook 71-73 groups. Got to sell a kidney though for a part that will never be seen.
  8. Are you taking about the splash shields or the 71 only “unicorn” part that goes up by the cowl? I have seen that someone is making new fender unicorn wings now to the tune of $250 a pair
  9. Swapped light bulbs in the garage. I had 52 32 watt 4’ T8 fluorescent bulbs. Now have 52 16 watt LED bulbs (Philips 16t8/led/48-850/uf18/g). Chopped my lighting power usage in half. Pretty pleased with the light. Output seems the same, and there is no strobe affect like I have seen with some LED bulbs. To top it off they are non retrofit- so you just slap them in (don’t have to gut the ballast). That being said they won’t work with old school magnetic ballasts.
  10. Swapped out my MSD box for a marine one since it may get wet behind the headlight.
  11. Nice buck! My dog is hopefully one my my local buddies will get one this year and give her a leg. I think she likes deer legs even more than chorizo which is saying something.
  12. Are you sure you don’t have a locker? Other thing is are you running limited slip additive in your gear oil?
  13. Tilt columns are like unicorns! I think the steering box input shaft flat is at 12 O'clock when it is centered. Just to be clear I am not 100% positive on that...
