  1. Nice result, as it have to be - congratulations and welcome to the TuTone-club
  2. It would not be my style but if you want to go that route: Get rid of all rust or rusty patches, protect it all with some rust remover, protection etc. If there is another layer of structural sound metal under it give it also some protection. Then use something like a Cold Tin from MIPA, it is like special bondo with metal, some sort of epoxy, and give it the form you like. Then check the outside. There have to be no rust between metal and bondo, otherwise it will crack once fed with wet and then fall apart. If I had to choose I would rather patch sheet metal in but it's your car...
  3. They are cork originally and can be ordered through West Coast Cougar Classics relatively cheap
  4. Fabrice, brilliant documentation as always! For your parts search: the brake line or fuel line fasteners I bought from Don, the kit has them all, even the one with the special clip that will be put under the driver's feet https://www.ebay.de/itm/71-73-MUSTANG-BRAKE-AND-FUEL-LINE-FASTENER-KIT-V8-WITH-DISC-BRAKES/362183954266?pageci=35480bdc-0122-4b10-88bb-7c521ef0ba0f&redirect=mobile For the headlight parts search for 'headlight adjustment kit 1971 Mustang' or 'headlight mounting kit 1971 Mustang' and have a look if you see what you need, then give a recall
  5. That looks really nice! Congrats to your first attempt
  6. Wow, awesome and detailed work as always, Fabrice. Enjoyed reading by breakfast....
  7. Ford was trying different label makers for the model year 1973 and one company used white and the other used blue tags. Marti Auto works collected enough samples to have a good idea of the dates certain tag colors were used so they could help. Mine is 04/73 and had a blue one originally...
  8. Me too! Let's finish our work and drive 'em next year!
  9. I am up to 7 years now... still hoping, NOT to reach 11 years. But yours looks really good and I enjoy the updates. Nice engine, hope it does well and will produce good numbers! It looks like if! Nice valve covers...
  10. I am sorry for your loss... Thank you for sharing your story. Hope you could get some good memories by driving with your beautiful vert!
  11. Nice story and Mach 1 - many of us have been there, too. Thanks for sharing and welcome from Germany!
  12. It was 8 years ago but I think they are these https://www.summitracing.com/parts/sum-wl10556 and the kit https://www.summitracing.com/parts/sum-wl10556-1
  13. I purchased the louvers of aluminum from Summit some years ago and they were a perfect fit! The don't interfere the opening of the trunk lid, it could be fully opened. The hardware is glued on the window glass between the seal and the glass, no holes have to be drilled. All in all a perfect bang for the buck - I will install them again soon on my car - I think they suit our cars very well
  14. Welcome from Germany and a nice ride you have!
  15. As a T5-owner and son of another T5-owner I can confirm what Steve said: they have the same taillights than the US-models, with all their numbers. In the front, at the 73 models, they made some extra orange lenses for the parking lights to meet the German law requirements. They cut off the parking lights function, place them into the headlights housing and use the parking lights only for turn signal purposes. In the 71/72's they only had to cut off the grille running lights to make them disfunctional. Some may homemade their own clear glass for them or use them illegal...
  16. It is a separate red warning light on the lower, left part of the dash, rare to find and not reproduced...
  17. Great, you saw Derek Bieri and his family in his Cadillac from ViceGripGarage I'll be dipped! I love his channel and him as a person, great guy! And that picture of your car is awesome!!!
  18. Greg, that's good to hear - now you have time enough to baby your vert - or probably not, too much things to do when retired You had luck the bar is not twisted, that would have been the end for it. I did the same with mine, filled the gaps and slices and it worked out perfect, looks like new again. I have bought some bar spares too, which I will use on the build, the old ones are a little twisted from a slight side impact of one of the previous owners. Btw: my car is know golden again, reassembling it from time to time if I have the time You know, big family, big projects, happy wife... Cheers, my friend!
  19. Greg, awesome to hear from you again, hope all is well Thanks for the write-up, that's good to know! So hopefully the rest will buff out, these bumpers are repairable at least! Is it twisted?
