  1. Damn that looks very clean, I just finished the crank and rod bearings and piston rings on mine after a few weeks of soaking the pistons to remove carbon. I need to get my head gasket surfaces clean like that. Can't wait to see your dyno as I am still waiting on my damn cam kit myself
  2. my oil pan has the baffle and the valve covers have the drippers, the block also has the 2 oil holes
  3. I have a quart of PPG DDL-9381 that I bought for doing the hood blackout on my mach a while ago and I never used it. Asking price of $350 but will more than likely take the best offer as I don't know what it is worth.

  5. i was able to finish one of the rear wheel wells today. I torched all the undercoating to check if anything needed to be fixed and then sanded and primed, then painted it. While i was there i stripped the rust off the drum and clear coated the outside.
  6. Hello, I'm looking for a distributor and 4v exhaust manifolds to finish the correct 351C that will go in my mach during the winter. I'm looking for correct stuff to fit a 10/05/1970 build date 1971 Mach 1.
  7. It has 2 models one that for some reason only comes in a gray which is the worst idea and then the other model with any other color
  8. hate it because its clearly been pitched by a clown that has no education on the subject. I don't get the gray model at all, its pretty stupid to limit it to 1 color for that model. Also a $50k base MSRP? You can get much nicer and better performing cars for the same price or cheaper. No shaker hood either is a pretty huge disappointment. If I see one on the street I guess it would be cool but I'd never drool over this cash grab car. They're just trying to suppress the "crappy Mustang SUV" critics. At least it makes 480 hp I guess
  9. It looks like it needs inner and outer rockers because of the pinch weld condition, if you want to replace the floors they sell pre molded sheet metal. If you just want one very badly and can do all the work yourself its probably an ok purchase
  10. Would this work? It looks correct to me but I'm no expert https://www.classicindustries.com/product/1971/ford/mustang/parts/k51498.html
  11. Very helpful, I'm gonna keep looking using the picture as a guide. The people who restored the car painted my trunk a blue white spatter
  12. I see the Zolatones still being sold, I can't find any of the PPG, Dupont, Sherwin Williams options on online stores at least. Is the eastwood trunk paint even anything close to a match? https://www.eastwood.com/ew-trunk-paint-gray-black-aerosol-12-oz.html
  13. Thanks for the help, Which of the Zolatones is the best match?
  14. Hello everyone, I am looking for a place to acquire the correct trunk paint for a 1971 Mach. I read the previous threads other people made and all the links are dead. PPG DX-1756 is what I think I'm looking for. Thanks
  15. I can do $20 plus whatever shipping costs if thats fine with you
  16. Hello, have some stuff from cleaning out the garage.

  17. Just an update, the heads indeed are closed chamber. Great news, and I have stripped and painted everything but 1 of the valve covers. Luckily there was no rust on the internals and just thick coatings of grease to stop rust. However, on the block someone has snapped what looks like the heater hose fitting. I have to figure out how to get it out as it is broken off flush with the block.
  18. Well now it's at a radiator shop and the guy claims its not the original radiator. Can anyone verify the part stamp is D1AE AE with the FOMOCO.
  19. Yes I tried just the local places around me and some were closed because of the virus, I will try calling the places on google.
  20. Anyone know a radiator repair shop near Cleveland Ohio? I bought solder and fixed one of the holes but I can't locate where the rest are. I'll keep looking but I probably should find a shop to do it. I called around and everyone acts like repairing a radiator is such an odd question, its not some sh*tbox econo-car where you replace the radiator.
  21. The hood latch spring has snapped now lol. Its the smaller one that looks like it helps return the hook to its position. Is there a place I can acquire a new spring?
  22. I havent read all the posts but I hope you get the money due to you without totaling the car, I would have probably snapped and killed the guy. Their insurance just wants to try to minimize their losses by hurting someone else in the process. They tried that with me after a buzzed driver hit my jeep going 70 mph but I told his company I'll never let them total the car since it drove fine. They wanted me to buy it back from them with a salvage title at an auction so I told them pretty much give me the "total" value minus the auction price. Of course they tried to bs me for weeks but eventually I got $3200 for the $3500 piece of crap lol.
