Vehicle Info

  • My Car
    I have just acquired a 1971 Mach 1 and setting out on a restomod to make this vehicle something different and special.
    This forum is my choice as 71-73 models are not popular in Australia and information is difficult to find.
    My VIN: 1F05M218422
    It will be along the lines of one in Japan.

  1. Hi Guys, Once again seeking your advice on seats for 71 MACH 1 . I am interested in finding some upmarket seats as part of my restoration - I have found these and would like to know if any member has fitted these. They are pretty well priced for what they appear to be so any further information or comments most welcome. Mel (Melbourne, Australia)
  2. Thanks for your replies - ordered Auto City Classic glass - complete glass kit. Sending from CA to Melbourne , Australia. 6DUB606 - Where are you in Australia? Mel (0419 044 550)
  3. Hi Guys, I am in the process of ordering glass for this rebuild project, I live in Australia which is half a world away and need to order the correct glass for my girl. I have been corresponding with Auto City Classic and they have asked me for the Trim Tag Number - they advise that it is either 63D or 63R - they believe it is a 63R. I have no idea where this Tab is, can anyone assist me as to its location - I have not seen anything like it during the resto. CJ Pony Parts have not been that helpful as you are dealing with a computer not a person. Anyone
  4. Hi Guys, Has anyone fitted these wheels to their 1971 Mach 1? I am currently planning the wheels and tires for my Restomod. I want a wide deep dished look and I am trying to determine what will fill the wheel wells up. Intend using a staggered set with rears 19 inch and fronts 18 inch. I will ship them in from California once I know I have the correct sizes and offsets etc. I would appreciate any advice from those who have been down this path as unfortunately, there are not many examples for me to play with in Melbourne, Australia. Regards to All.
  5. Hi Shane, Welcome from Melbourne, Australia. You will find the Forum a great source of information. All of the Australian guys are very helpful as well as our friends in USA & Europe. I have a 71 Mach 1 RHD in the body prep stage. Melfunctions
  6. I am also very interested in finding more information on this Headliner. I asked the company for more information with no luck, I will try again as I wish to upgrade my interior of my restomod. Melfunctions
  7. Thanks Mudbilly, I agree that this is an amazing source of parts - it appears as if there are many sources for the mirrors I am seeking. Thank you. Mel
  8. Hi Guys, I am looking for a pair of these mirrors with built in indicators, they do not have to be the same colour but need to be a pair. As this model is pretty new in Australia, I cannot locate them down here - any thoughts or auto salvage yards I should contact? Don at Ohio was looking but has not come back to me with anything. Any assistance will be very much appreciated. MEL :huh:
  10. Hi Richard, Nice purchase! You will find all of the Members very helpful, they collectively have great knowledge. I have been making contact with our Australian Members to find their locations. At this point, you are the first Adelaide Member I am aware of - Welcome. Mel
  11. David, Check the link that Mick (OzCoupe) sent me - you can have your car sprayed with a removable plastic paint and keep your original paint perfect. On one shot they had a BMW M3 in a really way out colour and a shot showing it being removed when the car was up for sale. Mel
  12. Mick, Thanks for the link - pretty amazing stuff! It appears to be far cheaper than a wrap with other benefits as well. Luxestang's comments are very valid - there is no real protection after being prepped for paint. I did note that in the demo, he sprayed a section that was just sanded and there was no difference in the finished product.
  13. Thanks Mike, It will be prepped for a premium paint job already, I need to find out if it the vinyl will apply OK to the prepped area. In looking at the project, it would probably suit a future owner to have the option of' a colour change - I am not a spring chicken and I will never sell my E46 M3 so my plan is to complete the project and have fun driving the beast. Appreciate your comments, Mel
  14. I am currently in the preparation stages of a bare metal paint job and I was considering a Gun Metal Matt paint finish. Talking with experts here in Australia I received a lot of negative feedback - Corners go shiny with a car cover, bird crap unless removed quickly can leave stains, obviously any panel damage = complete repaint - side or total. A vinyl wrap can achieve the same result and is considerably cheaper, lasts about 5 years but if garaged and covered and driven occasionally - 10 years. Has anyone done this to their pride and joy? As with anything, there w
