  1. Not really an update, just a current photo. About to head out for an evening drive. how to roll a six on a dice
  2. Thank you. It was fun to build. Yours is pretty impressive.
  3. New project car with the old one in the background.
  4. Interesting comments on the sagging spoilers. In 69, the spoiler was a plastic material. It had an issue of sagging in the heat. The solution for the late 69 and 70 was a more dense material. This caused a problem with the hinge springs, so Ford added a prop rod to the 70 models. On a correct, early 69, I actually look for the sagging spoiler. It is the only OE Mustang spoiler I know of that did that. Then it usually split in half and fell off the car. Ron, I love the car. It needs some sidepipes.
  5. Welcome from Humble, TX. Great color combination.
  6. www.swracecars.com They have a street bar that is just a 4 point all the way up to a full cage.
  7. I tried the Shelby grille look. I even went as far as building the brackets, moving the headlights back, and sectioning the bumper. It just did not look right. Then again, I don't like the 69-70 Shelby grille anyway. It has that "we ran out of ideas" look. In the end, I used a 71 Mach grille, cut out the center, and installed a 65 grille. It turned out so well, I am building a matching grille to go under the bumper between the park lights.
  8. For those who might not have seen these yet. http://www.newvintageusa.com/71-73mustang.html
  9. It has been a while, so here are the updates. The car drives very well. I got rid of the transponder keyless start and went back to a keyed ignition. The twin carbs are going away in favor of EFI. 8mpg on a good day. I am making a splined sway bar for the front. the original just doesnt have the correct geometry for the lowered ride height. The AC system is getting updated to servo motors instead of cables. The interior is getting LED lighting in the console, rear storage compartments, interior and exterior door handles, and trunk. I am also working on a carbon fiber front air dam.
  10. No opinion on the grille, but I do like the painted extensions.
  11. Sorry, just saw this. Are ya'll still going to be in town tomorrow?
  12. 1971 Mustang non AC dash assembly with glove box door. No pad, switches or trim. Free.
