  1. It’s Omni Epoxy Primer. Holds up well and has a nice satin sheen.
  2. FINALLY!!! It’s done!! Brought it home from alignment shop tonight. Drove great. Ran good. Got it all cleaned up and ready to go home. The owner is going to come this weekend to pick it up. Another one out the door.
  3. Not mine. Just found looking on Craigslist. https://chicago.craigslist.org/wcl/pts/d/maple-park-1971-nos-mustang-fb-4-panels/7389929602.html
  4. Plan is to start tearing into it this winter.
  5. Got the car loaded up and dropped off at the alignment shop. I should be picking it up this evening and taking it to my buddys shop to reinstall the exhaust and button up a few odds and ends. Then back to my garage to clean it up and give back to owner. We are close now!! FINALLY!!
  6. That sucks. But it is easy to do with our Clevelands. I would say as long as the head isn't cracked or anything, you can replace the guide and seat and be OK. Just be sure to replace those valves with good quality aftermarket valves. I went with Ferrea on mine.
  7. Were those stock valves? Mine were stock valves and they are notorious for the heads coming off the stems. Mine had the valve head pop off the stem and went into the cylinder and destroyed it almost exactly like yours. My motor have very few hours/miles on it.
  8. Also here a few pics of the original 71 I painted a few years ago. I copied exactly where the factory blackout went to in the doors jambs. I’m pretty sure they changed them slightly in 72. Yours will go a little higher on the body since this car has the decor trim and yours does not. You car is looking great!! Keep up the good work.
  9. Hood stencil is looking great. Don't forget when you shoot the rest of the black, to paint the inside edge of the tail lights where the honeycomb goes.
  10. Damn that sucks! I had the exact same thing happen to my motor few years ago.
  11. That's funny, mine is the same way. I just didn't want to be the first to admit it!
  12. Interesting to see the varying views on the subject.
