  1. Nice! We have an 1/8 mile track here I was going to go out to tonight but it got rained out. Went when the Mach was in the paint booth and tore it up with the charger! Can’t wait to run the ponies tho Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Has anyone used any hood hinges/shocks other than Stock? Looking for a different route for my fiberglass hood. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Your farther along than me! Looking good!! my apologies for not stating above that my car is now completed. This pic was the Fall of 2015. Keep with it, it will be worth the effort. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Did you strip down to bare metal? My primer is staying stuck in most places, I was going to just sand down smooth. What was your technique? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I feel that! I used the aircraft stripper as well, stuff really works! It took 2 gallons to get down to metal/primer. The car was repainted before so I had several layers to go through. Now that I got 95% of it off I’m using a 80 grit sander to remove the last little bits. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Ah - multiple coats of paint. Gotcha. Mine was just the original paint, albeit very sunburned (believe it or not, the paint on mine was Light Pewter Metallic after 40+ years). Be careful with the lead seams on the A-pillars and where the upper quarters meet the roof. Carry on, Brutha! She's comin' along nicely! ::thumb:: Lucky you!!! I taped most of my seams off and am gonna work on hand sanding those down, then neutralize the stripper, fix the body and paint! Got big plans little money haha Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Yeah, it’s pretty bad however it’s only on the quarter panel and that area of the B pillar. Other than that the car is really good! Hopefully I can find someone with a good patch they’re willing to cut since there’s not any donors in my area. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I can't believe you are using the stripper with those nice wheels and tires on the car. I would put her on jacks or cheap old wheels and tires. kcmash I had them taped off with plastic! [emoji106] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Hmm the red ones look slightly like what I need however on the curvature It looks like I need farther back than the cutout. Here is what I’m dealing with unfortunately Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Sorry for the poor pictures. I had my wife send them to me while I’m at work. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  11. Definitely! I love how the yellow looks on these cars. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Me too. Just gotta wait for the $$ to get it sprayed lol Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  13. Was in the process of stripping the paint and sanding it down when I decided to clean the garage. Pulled her into the sun for a bit and let it run. Figured I’d grab a picture for everyone. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Not a problem! I’m in no rush. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. That would be great! Thank you! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. Thank you! I will definitely keep him in mind. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  17. Unfortunately my cutout was rusted through and got mangled when pulled out. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  18. Thank you for the info! If it’s close enough I should be able to get it to fit and weld it down, I’m not going for a show quality finish, just a weekend driver! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. The curvature looks the same as my 72, if you end up getting it let me know. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  20. That I’m not sure. Do you have a picture of one? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  21. Hopefully I’ll be able to find someone to fab it around my area. Attached is a picture of where I cut it out. If anyone has a donor car they’re willing to cut out let me know. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  22. Gotcha! Yes it’s the bottom of the B pillar, I’ll see if any metal shops are able to fab one for me or see if anyone has a donor car in north west FL. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  23. I thought the A pillar was toward the front of the car and the B pillar was toward the rear? Was that picture not the correct location? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk I believe the picture is the wrong location, my damage is on the rear pillar however in the same area. My apologies. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  25. I will try to get a picture when I get home, (currently at work looking at car parts lol) but I have looked for B pillar patches/whole pillar and it doesn’t seem like I can find any for 71/73. The metal I took out was pretty well rusted through and there’s no saving it. Surprisingly the rocker panel under the weld was rust free! Here is a online picture I found of the area I’m talking about. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
