  1. 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?
  2. 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?
  3. 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
  4. 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 gauge
  5. 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 ob
  6. 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."
  7. 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.
  8. Sweet! I used to have that problem with the rear view mirror all the time with one of my cars.
  9. Still looking for 2 pairs of 71 fastback torsion rods for two spoiler cars, please help!
  10. Question: How many are used on spoiler and non spoiler cars? I'm building 2 spoiler Fastback cars and need whatever it would take for those two cars (I'm thinking 2 sets of right and left rods but I don't know for sure). Also, are coupe/convertible torsion rods different from fastback (I'm too lazy to go to my shop and look and compare right now!)? Thanks! Kevin.
  11. Thanks HemiKiller and David! Very helpful info. I will contact Precision for one of my cars that has 460 exhaust manifolds for help with an H pipe and I'm glad to know the hangers are available on Ebay. I don't know how I missed finding them on Ebay because I sure did look there! I guess I missed some key words in the search. The vendors I use all say they're out of stock on the hangers. I'm thinking the maker may have gone out on his own on Ebay. All good, because the price seems to be lower! Thanks again guys.
  12. Hi Andy. What's their number or website? Thanks. Kevin.
  13. I can fix it! My Dad has an awesome set of tools!
  14. Not sure where this thread should go. I have a couple projects going now and I need new repro dual exhaust hangers for the mufflers and the tail pipes. I checked with vendors I know and they are backordered. I don't want to wait. Does anyone have some new repro hangers laying around they can sell me? Thanks! Kevin. 205-222-3646.

    Hi Harry. Is your car painted in the factory shade of brown, or was the paint taken from a different car? Thanks.
  16. Hi Harry. Can you please tell me the exact color code you used for your brown? I love it! I have a medium brown metallic car I need to repaint and I really don't like the factory shade, but I do like the shade on your car. I'm thinking your car is painted in a shade of brown that is different from the factory shade, but I could be wrong. It looks a little darker to me. Thanks, Kevin.
