New member on here and thought I would start a build thread of the Mach 1 I have in the shop. The car got delivered to the shop yesterday from Seattle and will be starting on it as quickly as possible. Im sure the new owner will chime in as we are both new forum members.

Nice car! Looks almost like mine! I don't believe the color on the key fob is correct though. Mine is "medium lime green metallic," not "ivy glow."

Couple of updates. Mostly been taking inventory of what's missing and what we have for the car. Got the dash out, stripped everything and got it in the blaster. Got wiring off to Midlife. Got the floors all clean ready for some primer and seam sealer. Need to locate some brackets off of the bottom of the cowl.

I appreciate everyone's kind words. Me and my dad restored that fastback in 1999. I have my first car, 65 6cyl coupe that's very rusty sitting outside the shop. May get to it in a couple of months. But 4 other customers cars are in front of that lol. Did some mire paint today on the cowl and engine bay.
