I've been posting updates on the FB group(easier to just upload)...but my son and I have made some good progress on our father/son summer project on our 73 mach1. We just finished painting this week and are putting it back together...next up wet sand/polish and doing the interior and some upgrades...
Heres my attempt to video my install of the Hood Lock Kit (32 piece from Ohio Mustang Supplies) since I was not able to find any YouTube videos on this...don't hate... I'm just a learning as I go and sharing back what I am in case someone else can use it -) https://youtu.be/T0qUKwTL43g
Hello, I found this group while searching Youtube videos on how to restore a 73 Mach 1. My son and I are tackling this project (since he's stuck at home from college #GODAWGS!, with no summer job due to the shelter in place), we figured is a good father and son project. Is our 1st restoration so any help/advice will be GREATLY appreciated it! All we have is time and a 19 year old's energy :-) Car's background: The car is a 1 owner car with 42K original miles on it purchased by the original owner while he was in college (we have the original title and dealer paper work where it was purchased for $4400). The car has been sitting for a while. Got everything running and cleaned up. Replaced all the wiring, brakes, tires...now we are doing the body work. There's not much rust and the body seems to be in great shape. The only piece I think we have to replace is the rear light panel where is rusted thru... Not looking to do do a full frame off show quality restoration, just a daily driver. My son and I started the take down process and thinking about sanding the old paint off ourselves to bare metal (Thoughts on this? advice? we are going to use a a DA sander along with hand sanding)...will repaint to original 2B red with the red/black hood... If any one is around the Athens/Jefferson area, and have some time, would love to get some help/advice... Thanks in advance! Sean upload image
