    Company looking for plastic front bumper as tester to possibly start making!

    I was surfing, and found a Mustang II website that makes bumpers and stuff for them. I sent them a message telling them about the 71-73 Mustangs, how they came chrome or plastic, and while chrome are made but the plastic are not. He sent back that he would be interested in getting ahold of a...

The basic body, I changed a quarter panel, patched the floor, and am about to paint the shell in primer, then color.  I am assuming it...

    Just ordered 2 😃  Haven't been on the site for a bit, as work on my project halted with the 'Rona shutdowns.  Saw a post about the shirts on FB. As a side note, racing starts back up around here soon, and I will be trying out my radar gun I won here soon!

    Odd question for the "Bigger" guys here

    Thanks for the replies! I decided to try the suspenders route. I got some good ones, and have worn them a couple of days. Not as bad as I had thought. I think mostly it was a mental thing, where I didn't want to be one of those old guys wearing them, lol. But so far, so good. I have also been...

    Odd question for the "Bigger" guys here

    We buy junk cars and scrap metals of all kinds. We also sell parts. We mainly have cars from the mid 2000's back. We have a few older cars, at one point about 200 or so from the 30's-70's, but have been slowly crushing them (As much as I hate that!) But only 1 72 Mustang, or what's left of it...

    Odd question for the "Bigger" guys here

    I know this is the page for off topic, boy do I have an "Off topic" question, lol! I am a big guy... 6 foot 7, and north of 300#, so I have a belly!  I am 53 years old, and have always worn my belt at around the bellybutton. I have always had trouble with my pants wanting to fall down, and...

    72 Grande Coupe project, starting Fall 2017!

    I didn't see any cowl rust, but will look again closer when I get back on it. That is a good idea on having the door on. I thought about putting it back on, but with the fenders off too I wasn't sure how to get the door in the right position without putting the whole front back together.  This...

    72 Grande Coupe project, starting Fall 2017!

    I just used a body saw, like a jigsaw almost. By overlapping and cutting, I wasn't worried about cutting straight since it was all being welded.  I believe where you are talking about the lower piece, I used an air punch to make holes in the skin, to plug weld thru to the old metal. Everything...

    72 Grande Coupe project, starting Fall 2017!

    This is about how it sits right now in storage.  I will be working on getting the motor while finishing a couple of projects, then the car comes back. As of now, I want to get the motor and trans in, and hook everything up. I want to get it ready to run and move. I have headers for it, once...

    72 Grande Coupe project, starting Fall 2017!

    After grinding, I got a skim coat of filler over it, and over the patch higher up towards the roof. This also took a bit of time to get looking good. The pics make it look like more filler than is really there. After I got it looking pretty good I got some primer on it. I have just a little...

    72 Grande Coupe project, starting Fall 2017!

    I decided to replace the panel. Using advice I had been reading, I attached the new quarter to the old, and cut thru both layers just below the top edge of the new one. That made for a good fit. I used these little clamps to hold the new piece to the body, which left a nice little crack to weld...

    72 Grande Coupe project, starting Fall 2017!

    The left quarter is in pretty good shape. The passenger side, though... It was dented at the back, and right in the middle. The was some rust holes in the bottom, and some previous bondo that was cracking.  free online virtual casino upload online image
