  1. love it..... can't wait to see it completed!!!!!!!! Will be following this one for sure!!!
  2. Alright to do a follow up this is what I did, and the reason the mice moved in is partly my fault for not driving it more than I did last summer but it will not happen again... I went to our local Menards and bought a Pile of sticky traps, Poison bars, and 6 cans of insect foggers. I then proceeded to remove the back seats and the back trim panels and the front seats. I vacuumed out the entire car all the mouse turds and nest. cleaned it up. I reinstalled both front seats and kept the rear seat a panels out. I then opened all the sticky traps and put them everywhere I could, and in the middle of each sticky trap I put the poison bar in the middle and laid a bunch of lose ones around on the floor and front seat. I have the car out side the shop and I didn't want to do this next step in my shop because my 160 pound Saint Bernard lives in the shop and I didn't want to poison him. I put 4 of the foggers in the car and set them off and just let it set out for 3 days, after that I filled soda caps with peppermint extract and put the car back into the shop. I'm happy to report that this winter I have not seen anymore signs of mice in the car and it smells like a candy cane inside!!!! I will put the back seat and the rest of the panels back in when I get ready to drive it this summer and pull out all the sticky traps and poison... Winter sucks....
  3. I know this is an older thread, but I'm sitting at home riding out a blizzard in Central Nebraska. Its too cool for me outside to work in the shop so I'm surfing the net and dreaming of summer, and had to add my pic to the thread!!!! image host sites
  4. Hello everyone, I have a odd question for you all and I hope you can give me some ideas on my problem I'm having. First off I live out in the country and I'm having a mice problem with them little stinkers getting into my Mach 1. I have sticky traps in the car and have the rat bait poison bars in it and yet still have them getting into it. I pulled the back seat, front seats, center counsel to clean it up and get the nest out.. With winter coming I'm looking for some good idea to curve this little problem.. Then little stinkers sure can ruin a car fast.. please give me your ideas, Thank you in advance...
  5. Yes I remember this and that is the year I dropped my subscription to them....
  6. Nice... Congrats... Love that color!!!!!!
  7. I have not dug it out yet but I will shortly then I will get you some pics.... I will not build it into a circle track car. Still researching which direction I want to go with it... either drag racing or SCCA road racing car... done both and enjoy them both...
  8. On my mach 1 it was a full time job driving it down the highway at 55-60 mph... so I replace the steering box and wow its drives great now.. No wondering from ditch to ditch... I bought mine off of e-bay for like 150 bucks and it is a power steering car.. now if you have a 351C with headers it a very very tight fit and a pile of work but so worth it....
  9. Hello everyone, I have a 1972 Mach 1 shell buried in the back of my barn and today i was looking at it and was wondering what I should do with it. Its not in bad shape body wise and I feel its too go to send to the crusher. So I was thinking of maybe building a drag car out of it, and was wondering if there where any build threads out there. Yes I did a search and really didn't come up with much, but i'm also not that great on the computer. I could restore it but, there is a lot of the interior I would have to run down and that seems to be where I spent piles of money on my other mustangs I restored. Since I have spent half my life racing dirt track a buddy of mine said I should build a old school dirt car out of it... I told him I only do that to chevy's since they are dime a dozen....
  10. I stop by there a lot, although sometimes I don't log in I just surf the threads. It works for me, but I do have problems getting it to come up on my wife's laptop.
  11. Thanks for sharing!!!! I have race auto cross before and it was a riot, but never done it in my mustang, maybe some day
  12. I'm sick of winter and can't wait till spring for many reasons and one is to drive my mustang again. My mustang is over in the corner of the shop with a tarp over it. Winter has not been too bad here compared to the snow that other people have had, but the cold temps really take it out of me anymore. Can't wait for some warm weather, then I will be complaining about the humidity and hot weather... Its just a never end circle... LOL!!
  13. not a lot of 71-73 coupes, fastback or Mach-1 in my neck of the woods. I have seen 1 coupe, 2 Mach-1's floating around a 50 mile radius within the last five years. Went to a car show in Lincoln and mine was the only 1971-73 Mach 1 in the show, there was another one that was a coupe but I was the only Mach 1. Every day I drive 100 miles min and don't ever see a 71-73 cruising down the road.. I see mopars and camaro's but no big body mustangs. Makes me feel good when I take mine out, since there rare here. I don't think any camaro's or chevelles rusted out because if I had a dollar for every one I seen in the summer time I could buy another Mach 1.
  14. yes I have tested and made sure both flasher work. I'm getting no power to the turn signal flasher, I have power to the 4 way flasher. I may have to tear the dash down and trace the wire back to fuse panel or where ever the power feed is since it seems that the power runs to the flasher then up to the turn signal switch..
  15. well I have done some internet surfing and it seems that the power to the switch for the turnsignal part of it runs to the flasher first then to the switch if this is correct information then my problem is no power to the flasher... Oh I love electrical problems... LOL
