    Engine bay paint.

    Jason- I have used what you are holding in your hand on a number of vehicles with good results> Duplicolor Semi Gloss Black Engine Paint. Just make sure you prep the surface well.

    Fredensborg's 1973 Mach 1 improvement/build thread "Sleipnir"

    Jason- The 71/73 booster is not available in the repop world that I know of. In the event that you are in for a rebuild of the brake booster, here are the guys I used: https://boosterdeweyexchange.com/ Well respected outfit in the classic car world.

    Valve cover beautification.

    You can also use paint stripper on them if you don't have access to a bead/sand blaster.

    They say it is the best '72 Mach1 on the planet

    Sorry. I don't like it. I can appreciate the workmanship, but not much else. It is worth half what she spent the minute it left the shop.

    Favorite Detailing Products

    After reading a paste wax comparison test last year I gave the winner a try: Turtle Wax Graphene Paste Wax. I'm impressed. Expensive, but what isn't these days...

    Carby selection

    Everyone has an opinion on brand of carb and proper size. Next to oil selection, it is a common conversation at any gathering of car guys; online or in person it is always fun. As far as sizing, I generally go with what the calculators/formulas recommend. Unless you are going to regularly play...

    Dual Exhaust on single exhaust car this might help

    I drilled holes and used thread cutting bolts when I converted my single over to dual. Worked well for me.

    Findings in my Oil-Pan

    +1 on the Pertronix distributor. No issues with mine and it is hard to tell it is not the stock unit.

    Hello from Hamburg

    Welcome from North Idaho! I spent some years in my childhood in Bad Hamburg near Frankfurt. I look forward to hearing more about your Mustang's progress. How great to be able to ring it out once in a while on the Autobahn!

    Heater box assembly

    Per the Ford service manual you don't need to disassemble the dash. I was able to wiggle my heater box back in place fully assembled with all clips in place. As I recall I did not have the carpets or seats in the car (or the side kick panel & glove box). This gave me a tad more room to get...

    Smoke on start up

    I'm thinking valve guides, particularly if compression is good.

    What did you do to your car today?

    Tom- Attached video shows stock tips and positioning which I believe to be accurate.

    Welcome from North Idaho!

    Rear Springs

    I installed a set of Eaton Competition Suspension 138lb springs on my '73 last summer. Worth every penny. If you go the Eaton route spend the extra bucks to buy their shackle/bushing kit at the same time. Also worth every penny!
