1971 Mach 1
Hello all! My name is Gilbert and this is my current project - a 71 Mach 1. I do resto work from home and play Mr. Mom for my 5 kids. I picked this up in ABQ, NM about 7 weeks ago. With any luck I'll be jammed and ready for paint in two more weeks. I'm going to back to the original light pewter paint and I'll black out the interior as most of it has already been done. As of today all the jams are painted. I'll wet sand the body this week and be ready to paint.

Welcome to the site. I recognize your Mach from the mach1club.com site. Do you have the kids helping you out? Great progress.

Thanks for the welcome! No kids helping at this point. Maybe this week during spring break. :)

The other site didn't seem to have much response - I'm hoping to get some technical help as I go along.

Thanks guys! I do restoration work from home so it's not really fair to compare my timeline with you guys who work for the man all week. :)

Is there a good source for power window switch parts? Several of mine are broken where the chrome tab sits. I've no luck finding parts.

You know I got to thinking, This July mine will have been 9 years! I wonder what happened?:blush:
9 years not to bad...Mine came off the road in 89..But 6 years of my down time was from the shop that jerked me..Considering I started the end of June 2010 & didn't work at all on the car the month of august I've got 8 months to where I'm at now..& you've seen the amount of work I've done..If I wasn't going away for July & august I bet I would be real close to done.
