    Seat upholstery question

    SMS Upholstery is pretty much a perfect match except for the comfort weave. Theirs is good but its not perfect. I got the material for them for my blue interior and am thrilled with the match. My back seats are original with recovered recaros in the front and I dont think anyone would notice the...

    My 1972 Mach 1 "Alice" - Winter Overhaul

    Well it has been a while since I have posted any updated so I figured I would try and catch up on things a bit since I did a bunch over the winter. I started off the winter with big plans on getting everything done quick, then some life events happened that took the wind out of my sails for...

    Neutral Safety/Backup Light Wires

    Well I swapped the C6 in my car for a built AOD, and everything is pretty much done besides the wiring. Im trying to splice the AOD harness into the original one from the C6. The weird thing in my mind is that it looks like It had 2 plugs from the C6 that went to the body. A blue square...

    Material for cooler spacer?

    For my trans cooler I ended up mounting it on the rad support and it worked/lined up almost perfect.

    Power Steering box , not sure if it is a clever question...

    I got the Red Head 12:1 (it might be 12.7:1) box and absolutely love it. One of my favorite mods on the car last year.

    71-73 Mustang Exhuast

    Do you have the staggered shocks? Most places that I have looked only seem to make kits for the non staggered shocks, so it would make sense if you have to modify one side.

    Holley Sniper Info and Resources

    Some very cool tips and pointers you included. While I have had some hiccups with mine, I am happy with it and look forward to getting it more dialed in this spring.

    Disk Spindles, rotors, calipers - How much is it worth?

    I thought I would check here. I picked up a bunch of front suspension parts for my car, and it came with disk spindles, rotors, calipers, and lines. I dont need them since I recently redid all my front brakes and they are in good shape. So I figured I would ask here what they might be worth to...

    Has anyone replaced their seats with modern electric sears from a late model car

    I looked at a few options but wanted to find something that sat as low as possible. I ended up getting a set of the factory Recaros out of a 82 Mustang GT. They were a bit rough so I ended up getting them recovered to look like the originals. Im thrilled with how it all turned out.

    AOD Swap Driveshaft

    Which trans did your car have? Cause looking things up I think the AOD is like 3" shorter than the C6, so it seems like I would need a longer driveshaft.

    To EFI or Not EFI, that, and which one, is the question.

    Ya, Im hoping this coming year I have all the bugs worked out.  The other part I will say, is take your time deciding which one you want. In hindsight, I would likely have paid a little more and got the Super Sniper with extra inputs which would be nice for logging. Or I might even have seen if...

    AOD Swap Driveshaft

    I do agree with that. Part of it was more to use to look for a used driveshaft. My understanding is it is usually cheaper to shorten a driveshaft than lengthen one, so I was hoping to get a ballpark so I dont wind up with one thats too short. I would measure but it probably wont be a little...

    AOD Swap Driveshaft

    Just curious if anyone knows of a place that sells either an AOD swap driveshaft for a 72 with 351C, AOD(Originally C6) and 9". Or if anyone knows the length. I have been meaning to get to the wrecker and see if I can find an AOD D/S out of another vehicle, but its far too cold to crawl under a...

    To EFI or Not EFI, that, and which one, is the question.

    I put a Sniper on mine last year and it has been a little bit of a mixed bag. I will share a couple things I have learnt from the process.  1: Make sure everything else on your car is good. A carb is a pretty simple tool and wont care if you have an exhaust leak. I finally found my car had a...

    Wheel alignment spec problems

    Some shops will align it to whats in the book and that doesnt work with new radial tires. The old alignment specs they might be using could still be for old bias ply tires. These are the specs I used when I took mine in to the shop. I printed them out and said this is what I wanted. Opentracker...

    Springs or coil overs?

    I put on a set of Viking coil overs in the front of mine and am really happy with the kit. They are double adjustable, and kind of a hybrid coil over since they use the stock upper spring seat but then a coil over on the bottom if that makes any sense.

    What did you do to your car today?

    I learnt the secret of finding parts. Just before finding these I had decided I was going to focus on paying off some bills and trying not to spend so much money on the car. And just like that, when I decide not to buy car parts, poof, car parts I want seem to appear lol.

    What did you do to your car today?

    Besides tinkering on putting the engine back together. I ended up picking up a bunch of front suspension goodies for mine. There was someone on FB Marketplace selling global west upper/lower control arms, and strut rods because they are swapping to a Mustang 2 style front suspension to go with a...

    Should I get a new Timing set?

    Ya, just frustrating. Hopefully I can figure something out with them. I was hoping to get the engine buttoned back up and ready to go in over the next couple weeks. So will see what I end up doing.
