  1. Question about mach 1 back seats, I assumed fold down was different too.  Mine is not and I have about a 1" gap on both sides of the top half, it does not reach to either rear quarter.  Why would there be a gap there?

    I assumes the seat back was wrong for the car.  I know the rear quarters don't seem correct, the 2 bottom bolt holes don't line up, I only use the front holes to bolt to car.


  2. I am going to have to pull the rear window.  It actually moves when I press down on 2 of the corners, pretty sure water is getting under the window seal.

    I've seen a 360 mustang article talk about using string as part I install but it wasn't clear what they did with it.  Another writeup on this site.  Still unclear.

    Like the idea of not using close cell foam.   Do the windows just press in and hold, no sealer or "glue"?  No wonder they leak?

  3. So, had 72 convert, 351c auto, Mach 1 clone, sold it 3yrs ago.  Not looking ran into 73 Mach 1, I convinced my wife we needed. Kids r all happy again, very sad the 72 went.  73 is a 20fter.  Have a 351c to sell, that was not put together right but has all parts to put back together, 4B alum intake, mild cam. Might include CJ heads.

    Want 2 upgrade all 6 gauges but don't like Dakota options.  Want 2 c if a double din touchscreen will go in, found a single din w pop out touchscreen, need backup cam for fastback.  Not restomod but want modern features, will take on trips. 

  4. Had a 72 I swapped out the dash bulbs w/LEDs, went with aftermarket oil/temp/Volt and had DIN aftermarket stereo.  The radio was crazy bright, gauges good and dash leds still couldn't see speedo or fuel (radio too bright)

    I don't want to do that again with my 71 Mach1 now.  Has anyone put in a 6 gauge matching LED kit? Allowing light switch dimmer to dial in brightness across entire dash?  Ideally colors selectable (prefer classic green, but choose matching red if in mood).

    Saw Glow Shift, for example..even has GPS speedo, no tire, trans or rear end matching required
