  1. That's very sloppy of them!! I Sure hope they fix that and give some some credit if you ever go there again!
  2. Hello from the UK, Totalled, I've just read all 29 pages and your build is awesome, sorry to hear that you still have balancing issues after all the hard work. Looks amazing, sounds awesome. I've just taken on a long term project '73 that will take at least 5 years as most of the body needs replacing! mine is worse than the '72 that Q has videos of on you tube! but I like a challenge and hope mine will look half as good as yours when done. keep smiling and chin up mate, you'll sort it. Rich, UK
  3. Hi Everyone, I've had my Mach 1 for 2 weeks, going to be a 5 year+ restoration, $2000.00 worth of panels being ordered tomorrow! I've located and decoded my Vin number 3F05H152840 but the doors were replaced a long time ago and I can't find anywhere else to get the details, my Vin says 351 2v but the heads are 4v, I understand the internals have also been changed as well. I'm looking for the other details like, paint code, transmission type, the interior is deluxe package, I read on another post about Marti? how do I get a replacement sticker? Thanks, Rich, UK
  4. Hope you manage to achieve that goal, I'm being cautious with 5 years! I've got a workshop to build, 2 '72 F100 trucks to do then start the mustang but I have found a lot of the panels I need and ordering them tomorrow, around $2000.00 worth, later I need full rear quarter panels and new doors.
  5. Thanks sdstang.. this is going to be a 5 year plus restoration..
  6. Floor pans are pretty easy. I could probably do a set in a good weekend. Bring it up to PA! But seriously a lot of people have done them on here with limited skills and had good results. Just get proper tools and take your time. I have looked on youtube with no luck, will keep looking;) Mexican, look at this guys videos, https://www.youtube.com/user/fuzzenut/videos?flow=grid&view=0&sort=da start at video 51 I've learnt a lot from this guy and I haven't started my restoration yet!
  7. that's a great result, check out this video for putting in floor pans,https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yiUT_-lEpIk . Fuzze nut has a great list of videos that I've learnt a lot from..
  8. Hi, I've been looking at panels for my 1st order and there are certainly enough sites to choose from, can anyone tell me what the quality and ease of fitments of Sherman and Goodmark are like, thanks Rich, UK
  9. Thanks Ponypastor, about to order my 1st lot of panels, $1800.00 worth :)
  10. Thanks jbojo Thanks Mustang dynasty, I'll probably be looking at 95% new sheet metal :s and I've got a lot to learn on this, learnt to weld last summer... do you have any pictures of your restoration? [/font] Hi Manu64, thanks. not a bond bug, the front half of a '63 Morris Traveller that I was going to turn into a pickup with tube chassis and 3.8 Buick V6 :) but it's going to have to go now, too many others :blush: a '72 F100, '72 F250 and now the Mach 1 Hi Will e, thanks.
  11. she'll certainly be a labour of love, will keep me out of trouble & I hope I can get my 2 sons involved too Thanks Mike.
  12. Hi all, I'm Richard and live near Southampton in the UK, I have just become the owner of this '73 Mach1, it's been off the road for 13 years and badly neglected, this will be a Looooooong project and I'll be asking for lots of advice. look forward to reading all the build threads and making some new friends, I have no idea yet as to what condition the floors are in. http://i592.photobucket.com/albums/tt9/Richard_Baker/PICT0001%20-%20Copy_zpsgzjtbziu.jpg http://s592.photobucket.com/user/Richard_Baker/media/PICT0002_zpseyu3tnpj.jpg.html?sort=2&o=17 http://s592.photobucket.com/user/Richard_Baker/media/PICT0003_zpsktg3w3lo.jpg.html?sort=2&o=18 http://s592.photobucket.com/user/Richard_Baker/media/PICT0004_zps6zezfgko.jpg.html?sort=2&o=19 http://s592.photobucket.com/user/Richard_Baker/media/PICT0005_zpscvlp6ban.jpg.html?sort=2&o=20 http://s592.photobucket.com/user/Richard_Baker/media/PICT0006_zpsntcc4zqs.jpg.html?sort=2&o=21 http://s592.photobucket.com/user/Richard_Baker/media/PICT0008_zpsjcfbhuia.jpg.html?sort=2&o=23 http://s592.photobucket.com/user/Richard_Baker/media/PICT0009_zpslsdaa07u.jpg.html?sort=2&o=24 http://s592.photobucket.com/user/Richard_Baker/media/PICT0012_zpspevl7541.jpg.html?sort=2&o=27 http://s592.photobucket.com/user/Richard_Baker/media/PICT0014_zpsckcnnxor.jpg.html?sort=2&o=29 http://s592.photobucket.com/user/Richard_Baker/media/PICT0016_zpskwhsbgmp.jpg.html?sort=2&o=30 http://s592.photobucket.com/user/Richard_Baker/media/PICT0020_zpsoggaiqlv.jpg.html?sort=2&o=34 http://s592.photobucket.com/user/Richard_Baker/media/PICT0023_zps8lbqd5bx.jpg.html?sort=2&o=37 http://s592.photobucket.com/user/Richard_Baker/media/PICT0024_zpslxvinfmm.jpg.html?sort=2&o=38 http://s592.photobucket.com/user/Richard_Baker/media/PICT0027_zpsbnxub2gq.jpg.html?sort=2&o=41 http://s592.photobucket.com/user/Richard_Baker/media/PICT0028_zps2jbpfmzv.jpg.html?sort=2&o=42 http://s592.photobucket.com/user/Richard_Baker/media/PICT0032_zpsyioe0alo.jpg.html?sort=2&o=46 http://s592.photobucket.com/user/Richard_Baker/media/PICT0186_zps4stewozi.jpg.html?sort=2&o=0 http://s592.photobucket.com/user/Richard_Baker/media/PICT0194_zpsbvasau7b.jpg.html?sort=2&o=8
