  1. Its purdy to me...especially the engine. Great buy. Enjoy and have fun with it.
  2. I've gotta agree. I understand the comfort and drivability of a new one but try to keep yours. I'd sell the kids first. lol
  3. I measured this and come up with questionable results. The right (passenger side) I came up with 12 inches exactly. The middle area and left (driver side) I came up with 1/8 shorter. Can someone else also measure this to help him out? I don't think my measurements will weild the correct results. You may have a problem...The BOTTOM edge of the tailight panel should fit flush with the edge of the rear crossmember. By welding in the floor WITHOUT making sure the frame rails are set to the correct height FIRST you may not get the fit correct. A quick check is to measure from the CENTER of the rear spring front bolt to the CENTER of the rear spring shackle top bolt It should be 51-7/8" give or take an 1/8..Check that before you go any further. Best way to get this done if your rails are set ok is to fit the rear panel on...fit the deck lid on...make sure you measure from the inside edge of each quarter panel to the center screw hole for the gas neck filler (this makes sure the panel is centered) get everything lined up gaps etc then use a few sheet metal screws to hold it together. The screws let you repeat your alignment & fit after you disasemble to prep for welding etc. Maybe you got lucky but every car i have done a trunk floor on the rails have moved after the floor was cut out...Advice to anybody doing a trunk floor MAKE SURE TO LOCK THE REAR RAILS IN PLACE before cutting out the floor (simple way is to use some steel rod tacked from the rear to the front) Scott Great info.

  5. Ok. I've got a 65 coupe in restoration now...a 66 coupe in waiting, then my beloved 72 Mach Q-Code. The first two are "practice cars" so I don't make any mistakes on the great one.
  6. Glad it worked out ok and nobody got hurt. Hey - You just live down the street from me. I live in Talty...Winner's Circle. We need to hook up. I want to see your car in person.
  7. You can give it to me. It gets awful hot in Texas.
  8. Being an old Cowboys fan I just cannot allow myself to back the Steelers so GO PACK!
  9. I plumbed it all in with black steel pipe. I don't trust PVC. My fear is that it will get brittle and break as it ages. The steel pipe is durable and easy to install...although more expensive than PVC. Worth the cost to me.
  10. Oops. Sounds like you got carried away with the strip down. Been there. I am not near car now since I am at work so if you don't get an answer before I get home I'll get it for you.
  11. I have no experience either but I bought PaintuCation DVDs and learned alot. I am doing all of my work myself. Give it a try. You will save alot of money. Welcome to the forum.
