  4. Welcome from UK ... and Texas is best ...don't mess with Texas.
  5. Probably the best thing - the quality of work is under your control., and you can carry the knowledge on for other things The toughest thing is managing the equipment and the hot works environment making sure you're not setting fire to yourself, the car or your workshop Get covered up with reinforced kevlar welding gauntlets and a heavy apron so any spit-back isn't going to come into contact with your skin
  6. Awesome, Fabrice, just awesome. love the red idea.

  8. Hi GTS - when you have finished this - it'll be awesome Are you going to stay with same colour ?
  9. Welcome to these forums - nice car. Love them in Black
  10. Changed my fuel filter today for one with a window... Ohhhh ... so I bet YOU ALL found out what car I was stealing out of the USA and decided to "prank me" by urinating in my tank. I hope you all had a good laugh at my expense ...otherwise , why does my fuel look like piss? Be funny as hell if someone got caught on camera with their knob stuck inside the filler pipe of a Mach 1
  11. Hi got it this morning and took the spines out now I'm ready to form it to the right shape to make my stick hairy
  12. So !!!!!!!!! ...we're in to melting down a horse to get my Mirror ( in best possible American ...."Meeeuuuuurr" ) to stay in place .... right ...where's Trigger, Tornado or Silver, ? ...for all you old has-been's, fed on 1960's TV ....just like meeee
  13. I realized my mistake. as you guys have a mail box We have an item called a letterbox hammered into our front door ... it also means the mail man has to get that extra workout of actually having to use his .... and I realise these are redundant items these days ... "legs".. and stuff huge quantities of "junk mail into said slot. and we use these hairy "draught excluder" things so that you do not lose any house heat when said tax bill is delivered to your door ...or Rocketyfoot's new calendar, which I was delighted with a few months back.
  14. Hi ya'aaall OK now my OCD is getting the better of me again. As you see from pic - I've had both ... can someone please put me out of my misery and explain to me where they are different (body shell, not options list) , because I cant find one thing different or was it another Ford screw up?
  15. Hey Midlife yeah - I have a mirror (in Americanese..."Meeeur" ) to hang back up -- see this pic if its clearer
  16. Hi Macattack There are two ways of doing it - The photo of my last shifter was made from NOS shifter seal brushes from Jaguar XJS .. their part code CAC2864 if you put draught excluder letterbox in Ebay .... you'll get 1000's of them Below is the XJS part - you need two obviously -- then you have to carefully tease the curve into the spine to make it fit our needs ...the results are well worth it
  17. Nice try Kilgon -- but no ...its that silly rubbery gator inside the shifter get one of these to do this
  18. Yup ....I'm fixing something in my interior with a letterbox - a (imho) poor design by Ford that causes my OCD to run riot.
  19. My previous one was a bit behind yours 28 Oct 70 ....but didn't get registered with his first owner until 27th April 1971 ... suspect engineering car for Ford all that while.
  20. Oh KevKen .... what is the best method of nailing one's mirror back on the glass? all the best Al
  21. Yeah, the sleepless nights - the stress of having all your investment bouncing about on the Atlantic ... On my Green one, when the tracker said the ship location was just north of the Bermuda Islands ... I was thinking... will the reason for loss - "abducted by aliens", be acceptable on the insurance claim form This red one took the same passage as Titanic ...so you can imagine what thoughts were in my head. . aaarrghh
  22. .... the mirror fell off during the trip. ....and battery was flatter than a witches tit He arrived yesterday ... so I'm BACK ! ! ! ! The only real items that are exciting my OCD is... the shifter seems looser than my green one, passenger door is tight - it needs a little more heft to shut it (all the weatherstrip is new I noticed) The ignition leads are a bit yukky -- I'm swapping those Fuel filter close to carb has a slow drip - pipe is a bit perished Nice bits It is clear that this has been super loved No oil -trans-differential leaks ... I always ha
  23. If the 71-73 variant of Mustang is a land yacht, my Jaguar XK8 is a Container ship. I can tell you this ... I know beauty is in the eye off the beholder... but...FFS ..Heck, I have people in the UK who think Range Rovers are nice to look at ... YEAH! if you like looking at a post office sorting center with a bag of air strategically nailed to each corner. The Larry Shinoda styled 1969/70 to me was far less refined in many ways...especially styling and did look like porky the pig..., but in 1971 we got a better layout, interior and road stance. When the project went back to Gale Halderm
