I am stoked about getting into this. And a special shout out to Don down on the coast for all his help. Super nice guy.

Hopefully in the end it will look somewhat similar to this.

Maybe a more metallic burgundy with pearl while stripes and lettering. Wondering what the cowling would look like white too. Where some guys have it black. Not sure what that's called when the paint is done that way?? Maybe rear and front spoiler white?

Gonna need a lot of help. I think I can figure most basic stuff out but under the air cleaner and valve covers I'm going to have some basic questions.

Did I say I was stoked!!!!

Mine was a shifter bezel so I could tell what gear I was shifting into backing it in and out of the garage.

Boss 302 -70
Mach 1 -71
November 2000 I bought a premium clutch for my Boss 302 from NPD for $ 146.95

Have not started my boss yet (have been for 30 years in my garage).

So maybe time to do it now.

Online online or mail order catalog (back in 88 when we worked on it while I was in high school).

Now would be gas tank and back then would have been seat covers/stereo.

I was going to ask online or catalog/phone order too. Online would be gas tank in 2008. Phone order would be Dr. Gas Spin Trap mufflers and prototype x-pipe in late 94 early 95.

My first online order was about $600 worth of interior parts. Carpet, dash pad, standard door panel parts, lots and lots of stuff. The wife was ecstatic about it :D

Same with me, except mine was closer to $1200 and no wife. I was ecstatic enough for 2 people though.

My first part ever ordered online was actually a Canopus Voodoo Graphics video card back in the '90s. rofl

My first car part was pieces and parts for my Jeep.

My first car ordered online was my '97 Dodge Ram 1500 4x4 through Autobytel.com

My first part ordered for my '71 Mach 1... probably hafta be either replacement sheet metal (floor pans) from CJ Pony Parts, or a bucket of Rust Bullet from Summit Racing.

1971 Mustang Convertible, factory 302, disc brakes and A/C. Started to rebuild it all original but elected to go full tilt and rebuilt everything in the drivetrain, a/c, cooling, etc. etc. etc.
Mine was a complete 1" lowering suspension kit, while my motor and transmission were being built.

Mine was the interior for my wife's 66 Mustang. Took us awhile to figure it out.
