  1. Hi Geoff! I am 61 and , yes, I remember back around 1982 when driving my 1971 Mustang Mach I, the throttle cable broke. Major PITA, Funny. When I read your post about "Rednecks," I didn't think you ever heard of those in Canada. They're all over the place where I live in Birmingham, AL., lol!
  2. Hi. What is the best way to search to see if someone is a member of this forum? Thanks! Kevin.
  3. Thanks Don C. That's a good idea. Randy (midlife), what do you think? Even if I have my ammeter converted to a voltmeter, don't I have to run 2 new separate wires to the voltmeter?
  4. Man. What a drag that the repro harness doesn't work for the ammeter. Can you think of a way to wire it even if it is outside the harness?
  5. Thanks Randy. If I changed the alternator feed harness to a new 1971 with tach/gauge package and added the junction block by the solenoid and used the appropriate voltage regulator would that send the signal to the ammeter? And no problems with the tach either way? https://www.npdlink.com/product/wire-loom-alternator-feed/102024?backurl=search%2Fproducts%3Fsearch_terms%3Dwire%2Bharness%2Btape%26top_parent%3D200001%26year%3D
  6. Hi all. I'm building a 1971 Mach I with A/C and factory instrumentation group. I don't have the original harness. I found a good usable 1972 underdash harness from a convertible with A/C and tach and gauges. The best underhood harness I could find was a 1971 without the fog lamps and it was from an idiot light car. I know how to run the wires to pigtails for the fog lamps, so that's not a problem. I can purchase a new alternator harness for a 1971 or 1972 (not sure which to use) with factory instrumentation group and use it instead of what's in there now. My question is will the tach and gauges work inside the car without any other modifications to the underhood harness? I'm going to shoot this question over to Midlife Harness as well. Thanks! Kevin.
  7. Thanks Hemikiller. I was talking about the main bracket with the tracks for the window rollers. But I'm still confused. I'm building a 71 Mach I that is a bare shell with no spare parts and it came from the factory with power windows. I have a power window setup but it does not have any of the glass or brackets, just the motors and harness. So when I hunt for the brackets with the tracks and the bracket with the rollers, what are my options? Can I use the very common brackets from a fixed window fastback? Can I use brackets from a convertible with manual windows (I have lots of those)? I've obviuosly got the doors covered. Thanks!
  8. Thanks Rio! Those look nice. I bet the service costs a fortune. I wish they listed a price but maybe it's not that much. I should have been more clear. I'm missing a set of the panels on one of my cars so I'd need to find a set before I even have them restored. I should have said "reproduced" not "restored."
  9. Thanks David. So my main question is whether the 1/4 window frame in a Fastback with fixed windows is the same as the frame for a power window Fastback. I'm assuming it is because it is with a convertible. I've had lots of experience with convertibles with power windows, but I'm building a power window Fastback back from scratch and it's the first power window Fastback I've owned. They are a lot rarer.
  10. Sweet! I used to have that problem with the rear view mirror all the time with one of my cars.
