  1. How many yards would you need to do the front and back seats on the deluxe interior Mach 1 seats? I have interior code GW on my 72 Mach 1 and so I might need to order some of the white comfortweave. I also need the gray vinyl striped section for my front seats. Maybe two yards of that?
  2. So I was looking on the Morton Building's site because I really need a larger garage and I recently purchased the lot behind me and eventually want to build something. This is way more than I would do but I came across this garage and I think we can all agree that this guy has GREAT taste! and ummmm...can I get a hood please or maybe a fender or two!?? lollerz Check out this link and the pics of this garage! Darwin's Garage
  3. I will be getting there late Wednesday and will be attending the events Thursday through Saturday, heading back to Florida on Sunday. I will have my grabber blue 2011 GT since my 72 Mach is nowhere near being ready for anything. I know David (Carolina_Mountain_Mustangs) will be there in his vert and have his Mach 1 on display in the museum I believe. Also Rackerm will have his newer 2014 vert and mwilson7 will have one of his newer Mustangs. We should all try and get together.
  4. I'd rather just go for this and not have to worry about all the parts and BS this guy is offering up. I'd imagine $40k is much less than what you'd spend on the rusty "rare" Boss with extra parts for purchase. https://orlando.craigslist.org/cto/d/1971-boss-351/6801916928.html
  5. I know we're all about the 71-73 Mustangs on here and Mustangs in general but I came across this on Craigslist here locally and thought it was pretty cool. I'd drive it for sure...you know...for fancy date nights. :D It's still Ford so I'm sure everyone one here will still appreciate this car and it's overall condition and yeah...that engine too. https://tampa.craigslist.org/hil/cto/d/1970-mark-111-lincoln-best-in-florida/6799382866.html
  6. Do you think the shorter trunk floor would be correct for my car since I have the fold down rear seat? Also are there steps or a correct way to remove my crusty rear taillight panel? It's even worse on the inside of the trunk... It's kind of hard to find all the spot welds with how bad it is. Once I do find all the spot welds and drill them out or grind them down really good then I will need to use my air hammer?
  7. The one between the two "ribs" is definitely a crease not just an illusion. Also the other further back is the other one I'm wondering about. So far my car seems to be straight according to the measurements I've taken so I wonder how these got there. Maybe either at the assembly line or someone was playing dukes of hazard? Also I have two very small pin holes in my passenger side floor. Should I just spot weld these to fix? The other parts of my floor don't seem like they need to be replaced.
  8. Just wondering… Are these creases in the interior floor on the transmission tunnel normal?
  9. So this is good information for me as well. I have the original fan from my '72 351 CJ w/AC and from what I'm reading here I should not use that ever again?? I did have to get a new fan shroud due to a big hole at the top. Would that have been from a previous flex fan failure or would the damage have been much more substantial than that?
  10. I wish I found your car for that price over the one I ended up buying with plenty more rust and repairs needed!! Plus mine is an automatic and yours is a manual - even better! Also I'm guessing that was a pretty rare color choice so the numbers on the deluxe marti report would probably make this a rare car in general?
  11. OK, here is my version going off your idea and also others I saw on YouTube after you piqued my interest. Should give me about a 12" lift from the bottom of the tires.
  12. Not a bad idea... Looks like you stacked about 8 of those for a 16" lift? What length did you cut them at? About 20 inches?
  13. So really as long as I'm supporting the car by the rear axle and the front by the suspension that would mimic it being on all four tires. As long as the car is level I should be good to go right? I'd just prefer to keep it on the 6 ton jacks to have that extra working height and more room under the car.
