    Rear seat trim woes.

    Thanks so much Hemikiller. Mine is by VIN a 72 however it was made prior to 12-1-71 so that answers the question. Pity the supplier didn't specify this so now I'm going to try to get it altered locally as shipping it back and forth to the supplier is not cost effective. Thanks again and this...

    Haven't posted anything for a long time but still enjoy lurking. Now I need some help with rear seat information. I ordered a full upholstery set from the supposed Ford approved supplier who will not be mentioned yet. Firstly they have made one of the front seat covers wrong which there is no...

    More Progress

    Haven't posted for a while but just saw this - great job and sure feels great when done! Yes those window trims sound crap. Even the OEM ones have to be careful not to chip the shiny new paint like I did doh! Should have mine back on the road this weekend after 6 months off road will be a good...

    73 Mach1 Project

    Starting to come together and engine bay looking sharp Luckily mine had the rear indicators done in amber, not sure if lenses were custom cut or purchase somewhere? If you like I can have a closer look and see if any part number and/or brand on them. I just changed the wiring and bulb sockets...

    Hello from Atlanta GA!

    Welcome from Western Australia Nice looking vehicle especially the color! As Kilgon says best to use a good paint stripper then clean up with a sander but don't spend too much time with a coarse grit sandpaper in one area as not only will you create heat potentially warping the metal you will...

    1972 Mach 1 Restoration, Where to start?

    Great that you have taken the decision to get her back up and running. As you say check all the simple stuff. Does it turn over easily? Bores could be rusted so maybe spray a bit of WD40 down the spark plug holes to help loosen it up a little. If it was running well before it was parked up so...

    running Ram air scoops always open?

    I cut the blanks out and put in a grille, no problems and no overheating issues, just crank issues LOL Our XB falcons use an open scoop from factory, hood locks or not - see pic below Don't care if it helps or hinders, I just like the cooler air for the intake

    Bad news for the Mach 1

    Sounds like a reasonable outcome and your insurance was able to fudge the numbers once you gave them the necessary push So many people just take what they're given without question and insurance companies know this well Can understand your hesitation to repair if can't insure for an agreed...

    Cowl repair suggestions?

    Yes certainly for all the seams but I meant above the seams and a big enough bead to divert rain water away This would only be feasible if you have removed the top half of the cowl panel or at least a good part of it though

    Cowl repair suggestions?

    Either way you go about it I would run a bead of silicone around the hat area to prevent water pooling in the trough If you patch it I would use a POR15 or similar product on your remaining metal as from your photos it is pitted with rust I replaced my entire cowl with the repop item but still...

    C6 ruined by 393C

    Sorry to hear of your problem. One which I have gone through before and currently now for the second time. As others have stated it is probably trans/converter related although don't rule out the engine yet Important that the trans is flush with the block before tightening bolts and you have...
