    We took Mikes car to the painter today for final striping and detail. Getting close to the end!  What a journey!

    Made my own console, just got back from upholstery shop. Started with cardboard, then 1/8" handy panel, followed by final product made out of birch plywood. Looking forward to installing it. The angled piece at the front is for the vintage air controls which ties it nicely to the under dash.

    We finished up around five in the afternoon.  I went with the Dyno Max Super Turbo mufflers. V band clamps and a X kit from Summit Racing and well as a complete kit from National Parts Depot.  I have the turbo mufflers from the kit that I am planning to sell. I still need to weld on the chrome tips and make some minor adjustments.  Then I can fire it up.

    Hi Vic, Now that the weather is cooling off I will be back working on the Mustang between trips to southern Virginia where my wife & I purchased a house. The house is just west of Martinsville in Virginia which we are going to renovate to use as our house when we retire in 2 years, & we will sell the house we are currently living in here in NJ. Here is a pic of the house. The house sits on 1 acre of land & there is enough room to put up a 2 car garage to the left of the carport. I have to get more welding gas before I can weld in the sub frame connectors.

    Hey TexasEd, 
    I like your overall vision statement as mine is very similar with a bit of a lean towards the Pro-touring/Restomod vehicle.  I wanted more modern drive and conveniences of a modern car, but had to keep the original body with some slight changes that don't stand out drastically, but to make it slightly different.   
    A quick list of modern conveniences: 
    Vintage Air AC
    Unisteer Power Steering
    Cobra Disc Brake upgrade
    FiTech FI
    TKO600 Transmission with Hydraulic Clutch Setup 
    Upgraded Radio with Kicker Components 
    Street or Track Upgrades Suspension 
    TMI Covered Foxbodies in Mach 1 Upholstery 
    3 Point Front Seat belts
    LED tail lights and Halogen Headlights 
    Body Changes: 
    Removed 1/4 Panel Emblems
    Removed Trunk Letters 
    Removed Rear Wing/Still need to add Front Spoiler 
    Paint Whole Hood and Cowl Flat Black 
    Paint Tail Panel Flat Black 
    Painted on Side Stripe with Body Color Showing through for striping and MACH 1 lettering 
    17/18in Bullitt Wheel Combo

    I bought her near mint 2 years ago. Doing a few mods, nothing crazy.  I installed a NARDI steering wheel, & 18” Halibrand wheels from the 427 Cobra. EIBACH springs, sway bars w a 1.5” lowering in front. modern BAER brakes in front w Modern MICHELINs, rumpy exhaust, & modern speakers I installed a 6 speed T5 trans.  She’s BEAUTIFUL but not very fast. Now I’m fighting temptation to drop in modern suspension, 600hp, & White Racing seats LOL.  Middle pic was when I got her, she was riding really high for some reason. I much prefer the NARDI & HALLIBRANDS over stock

    She is now on the rollover jig and strateed stripping the factory underseal off.
    I’m quite surprised how solid it is, she’s had 2 No. rear 1/4 with outer wheel well  and LHS torque box at some point, quite good work carried out.
    more pics to follow

    Saturday morning came early last weekend.  Got the old girl down the beach for a decent sunrise.  A few pics for anyone interested.
    The big old hotel in a couple of the pics is Hotel Galvez' on the seawall.
    Beach pictures taken down on East Beach.  They put too many poles up down there, making donuts a bit dangerous - but you know a few got made.
    Was a nice quiet morning out with the mistress...

    I'll post more details once I get a chance to sit down and sort though things, however it's ALIVE after the first turn of the key.  Inglese intake, Holley Terminator X ECU.  I had to re-do the IAC wiring (the idle is a bit high in my first start-up video here) so my idle rpm and idle a/f are bang on.  It's coil- for spark, so dual-sync distributor is next...
    hopefully link works:

    Did you check to see if the catch locks twice? Might be that it locks once and not twice causing the gap.

    Bought this car last year for 400.00, as a parts car. After getting it home and getting the 4 five gallon buckets worth of old acorns, rat and squirrel crap, and ?? it looked to good to part her out. When I got brave enough to take out the back seat and venture into the trunk, there I found the rest of the interior pieces, exterior trim,  light buckets, and another 2 five gallon buckets of nuts and crap. I stripped her down, went thru all the wiring, and got all the electrical working. I replaced the drivers side floor pan and off to paint and body she went. Rust was minimal, with just a few patches in the normal rusted out spots and a new used top of course. She came home today.
