  1. Body shop was not happy with the way the bonnet looked. Felt it needed something extra so put some inserts on
  2. now with bumper tuck on the rear and some shots in the sun WhatsApp Video 2021-03-03 at 13.38.36.mp4
  3. @Carolina_Mountain_Mustangs @timachone Thanks guys , I will take some measurements and update on the filler panel. It was never my intention to go this route, I imported (at a stupid amount of money) a 73 bumper from the US , it took 3 months to arrive as it came in a shared container due to weight. Arrived, the bumper was torn up , the inner brace was missing and trying to get another which was in good condition would have been more then duoble the cost on the Chrome one. The rear bumper on mine is chromes aswell , while I would have loved to keep it "period corr
  4. @timachone @vintageman Guys, I did it , 71-72 bumper on a 73 , no need to change fenders or brackets. We fabbed up some rough brackets to mount the chrome bumper onto the 73 arms, All credit to my panel shop for coming up with this . We will fab a filler panel under the grill to close the gap,
  5. I do not know if this is same person I helped get some mustang parts fro the US or not? Lost contact with them. Been trying to contact friends in S.A. in the Addo area but having zero luck. Hope they did not get the Covid.
    The hood latch on a 72 is different than 73 handle is longer on 73 and I do not know what else.

      Hi there, sadly not me , there are a few mustang people in the country however


  6. Sorry for the delayed response , Ebay has a number of them , I like the Hirshmann stuff but trying to find one is difficult. placed on the drivers side windscreen
  7. I am using an internal Windscreen mount unit , they work well and dont need wires into the fender, The fender hole has been closed off. The boxes are sealed to the body , so fiberglass to the shape of the body then seam sealer around . The backs of them are coated in a waterproof Spectrum coat from Second skin
  8. so I know this is going to piss off the purists. I have always had a good audio system in my cars, I competed professionally for many years and stock is just not going to do it for me. With the Stang, we went for an old school approach, USD Waveguides and some 6in Midbass drivers, I wanted to keep the stock look inside with a good amount of attack and volume. We tried to look for options in terms of the 6in drivers. But went totally bonkers
  9. No worries , I have been doing some other stupid stuff
  10. Thanks , do you have any pics of your progress on the bumper since I will be doing this on a 73 as well. The bumper is a Mr Mustang unit , not sure if CJ is the same
  11. Adjusted the carb , set timing , and finally got her running where she wont switch off when put into gear. Also ordered a 71-72 chrome bumper as I could not find a 73 inner brace
  12. Hey guys so I have a double question and need some guidance 351C with 4BBL Holley 600CFM, Mild camshaft Electronic ignition setup Car starts and Idles fine , drop it into gear and she will switch off , back to N or P and she will fire up again , Could this be fuel or timing related, Have to hold the throttle and brake to get her moving along, its frustrating .Thats question 1 Question 2 , drove the car about for a while , car has a C4 with a white screw in modulator , which I understand is an early C4, I had a nightmare of a time with the previo
  13. Horn issue figured out, I have an aftermarket adapter kit, the contacts at the back are making contact only at certain points, so if you hold the horn and turn the wheel they come on and off. Today was speedo cable snapped .......nothing like driving along then tapping noises and you think the motor is on the way out , only to find the speedo cable broken. Have other issues as well but will post them in the engine section.
