  1. Does the car you are parting out have the rear quarter panel ashtray? Do you know if it is the same for a 73 mustang convert? I'm looking for one in GOOD condition. Thanks!
  2. Nice!! That's a long time to wait! Look forward to seeing the pictures and following the project.
  3. Sorry I missed your earlier post. I tried finding anything that references a part number for the bracket but didn't find it in the books I have, maybe someone with more in-depth parts catalogs would be able to find. You may want to check with Don @ OMS or MotorCity Mike to see if they have them from parts cars.
  4. Never too many pictures! the detail is great. Your doing an amazing job on this and the effort when done will show.
  5. Do you have the rear quarter panel ashtray with lid? Looking for one in good condition. Thanks!
  6. Congrats on the move. Hope you are able to find a place that will work for both you and the business. I have relatives in the area, great place to visit 9 months of the year, this year was a little too warm.....
  7. made me laugh out loud when I saw the pic -Anyone that has run an older car can appriciate that picture and the meaning of having extra oil on board
  8. Good luck on the restoration! ours started out pretty similar to what you have (not as much body work but the rest looks very familair!!) It's a process and at times it seems like it will never get done and will usually end up costing more then expected but when it starts to come together it is great feeling. Best advise, as most other on here have said is to bag and tag everything and take LOTS of pictures. For us, having the pictures to look back on has saved our bacon more times then I can count! And, this forum :)
  9. Thanks for additional details on the wires (clips are part of the harness), that helps! Was there anything holding the vacuum lines on the passenger side or did they just lay on the top of the intake? The passenger side valve cover had bracket also so was wondering what it was used for.
  10. Does anyone have a picture of what wires running through these holders? The main wire bundle for the coil, water sensor, oil sensor etc currently lays down between the edge of intake manifold and the vavle cover. Are they suppose to be attached to these holder? On the passenger side did the vacuum line get attached to them?? Thanks,
  11. Okay, I was reading posts on the site and then went back to read another one and got this error message. I'm researching if this is a Firefox setttings issue or something else on my computer but just wanted to pass along what I get.
  12. Thanks for reply! So I must be missing the clips that goes in the holes... I wonder if anyone has a picture that shows how it looked originally with the wires in it? I don't think I have ever seen them used so they must have been easily broken ??
  13. Can anyone tell me what the purpose/function of these brackets on the top corners of the stock valve cover is??
  14. Thanks Don. I will dig into it more and see if I can find out what's going on. I tested the advance with a vacuum gauge and it moves the plate and will hold vacuum.
  15. Good looking car! I'm following your other post on distributor rebuild kits as I'm interested in that option too.
  16. Okay, thanks for checking. It may be a browser setting causing it if others are not having the issue.
  17. Don, Thanks for reply. I went back through the shop manual as you suggested and found the end play spec. The issue on the breaker plate is back and forth movement. I'll keep looking for this information in the manual.
  18. Bump... I realize these are pretty basic question for people that work with this all the time but any help would be appriciated......
  19. Rocketfoot, I have a questions about the site login timeout. What is the timeout for inactivity on the site? If you are logged in and walk away for a while how long before you get logged off? Also, Several times I have been logged in reading posts and then tried to do something and get a message that I have to be logged in -I thought I was but it appears that reading posts is not enough activity on the site to keep you logged in?? Thanks!
  20. +1 I just read through this build thread, what an incredible job of fabrication! It would be great to see where this is at now.
  21. This has been an interesting build to follow, good to hear that you are still alive and making (slow) progress! Yes, the world is a different place then it was at the start of the year...I feel very fortunate to be able to keep working on my project. Even with limited funds I have kept working on the bits and pieces that just take time and don't require any cash to keep it moving so that I can get the car together and do that first start on rebuild engine.....
