    Took a picture today of both son’s cars against the Blue Ridge Mountain backdrop in our back yard. Thought they turned out well!

    That's because we have incredibly good taste, and are modest as well.

    I'm amazed at the number of engineers who are into classic Mustangs. Impressive.

    I have a 69 Mach 1 original tach in cluster and like to keep things original but I have made some modifications which I will list:  

    * converted existing tach with rocketman www.RCCInnovations.com. Luckily I was able to buy one cheap on ebay and converted that. what he does is replace the guts but face is the same.
    * got the console pod and installed voltmeter and oil pressure it in the ashtray which is where the shelby's had them.
    * for voltmeter i just tapped existing wiring that was nearby the console
    * mustangs have the oil pressure sensor made for dummy lights. so i had to replace with oil pressure sensor made for gauge.
    * clock stopped working but i found a place where you can buy remanufactured original guts if your willing to take that apart. 

    Let me know if you have questions? rob

    I am also an engineer so that is not an issue. Just trying to understand how they are tying it in. I assume you have to cut the existing connector from the harness?

    I quit and ran my own company for almost 20 years. We specialized in robotics and industrial automation (hence the call sign Robotman). Sold the company and retired in 2014. Been working on cars with my teenage boys since.

    It is gold and black. The black is reflective in the light. TJs is a small shop but very effective in getting what you need.

    As many members may have seen by now in another build thread, I have been restoring a Mach 1 with my oldest son Alex. That job is getting close to being done and has been an exciting, thrilling, and fulfilling process with my son for the last 2 yrs. Well, I am starting another 69 Mach 1 with my youngest son Mike. He is 12 yrs old and has been eagerly waiting his turn. That time has come!!! I have let him start disassembly as we are finishing the other car.
     

     
    Here is Mike setting in his car eager to get going.

     
    Here is Mike with welding gear on imitating dad.

    Rear window removed!!!

     
    And the journey begins again!!!
    More to come.
