  1. Car is looking great!!! And the family news is even better! Keep on, Keeping on!!
  2. I agree, that was always one of my pet peeves about our cars. Atleast its pretty easy to fix!
  3. I would definitely have a new converter in it. All those shavings are almost impossible to get out of an old converter. Also make sure to dump some trans fluid in the new converter before install, You want to spin the converter as you are installing it and make sure it seats all the way. You will here a couple clunks as it seats completely. If you don't have it seated properly you can easily wipe out a new pump. Once you have the trans bolted to the motor you should be able to move the convert slightly inside the stud holes of flywheel. Should be loose fit, if its bound up at all, your conv
  4. Wow!!! IS RIGHT!! Looks great. Also that spray booth looks awesome...... I would love to be able to spray in that!!
  5. That’s great price shipped. Factory is way better than those aftermarket.
  6. Actually the factory mustang hard lines worked fine but they were a little long. Used factory mustang rubber line to the rear end then used the factory hard lines and splitter across the rear end. I was always going to make new hard line across the rear but never got around to it.
  7. Hey Don. I’m really leaning towards tearing it down here in Late May. Are you talking about that clip off the 73 you had? Are the front frame rails the same as 71-72? I think they are, believe they just changed the bumper assembly in 73. I would be making a run out to your shop with a trailer to pick up a lot of parts. How much are you asking for the front clip? Is it off the car? Do you need me to come out and remove it? Or buy whole shell? Shoot me a PM with some prices if you could or post on here. Thanks.
  8. I don’t even know what to say. That painter is a fucking joke. The hood and roof are unacceptable!! God luck with the rest of the build. I really feel for ya man!
  9. I too am looking at doing the same thing for my car. The only thing I would advise would be to make sure you build a frame jig to hold and support the car while you cut the front end off. Then use the Chassis dimensions to put everything back to spec. I think this would be the way to go if the complete assembly is put together well. Would definitely save some time. I don't know of anyone on here that has used one yet..... at least that I recall seeing. I know Eric (mister4x4) did replace the front clip on his car but he used a donor car front clip. Curious to hear what others have to say?
  10. I appreciate the info. But what fun is it if you don't do it yourself? LOL!! I got a little work ahead of me.
  11. Awesome. Thank you. I’m thinking about building a frame jig and finally start tearing into my car.
  12. Nice looking jig. Do you recall the overall length of it??
