Tim's 1973 Mach 1 rebuild thread


Recommended Posts

Thanks, Fabrice :wrench:

Yes, I have finally installed the rubber for the trap door catch but I bought it a few years ago. I think it was with all the other rubber parts from Don at Ohio Mustang. So I would give him a call first or visit his web or ebay-page. Mine were missing complete and I ever wondered what was in there... 

Yes, I grease all the bolts I reuse with a tad of fine oil after using them. Although I do not want to change the tank again I do not want the bolts to be rusted again!

Great work!  Nice to see someone go to the level of even detailing parts and areas that may not be seen again for years.  If you hadn't taken pictures like the ones of the topside of the fuel tank no one but you would ever know the lengths you've gone to on your restoration.

Yeah wouldn't it be nice!? I'm afraid they will not ask permission :D

Rubbers: found some... looks like I wasn't searching with the right words...

Thank you very much! That's the secret of a good restoration - keeping even the parts no one would ever see in good condition! No one would ever know - but YOU know it! That counts :lollerz:

:rofl: 

And they aren't even that expensive! They make a huge difference. Your trunk floor bulge in the middle will appreciate them... :biggrin:
