  1. Gorgeous! Curious, did you get the cost of that paint job worked out? As I recall they doubled the amount of hours they quoted you on it.
  2. We'd be a better country if we'd go back to making jail and prison a place one does not want to be. Bring back the chain gangs!
  3. aslanefe, that is just incredible work....paint, upholstery....awesome!!!
  4. Never seen a junction box cover plate used for such purposes....LOL! That's ingenious, Vic! Nice work. Hey, when the time comes, I'm gonna be bugging you about the electrical. Mike, as always, incredible the work you do! It's good to see you posting now with some regularity. Enrolled in an Advanced Autobody course at the local Vo Tech the other day. Hope to paint my Mach later this year. I saw the disc used to flatten a hood on one of those TV build episodes and marveled in it. Thanks for posting that link, Mach 1 Driver!
  5. Looks great, Rick. Tinnman Subframe connectors look real familiar. You going to spray that Lizard Skin on the inside floor pans or underneath?
  6. That's a pretty cool calendar! Something to be proud of. Does it have a page showing all those cars? If so, put it up! Love watching your builds, Rich. One can learn a lot from pictures. John
  7. This is why I will paint my own car! You may recall posting on my build thread in regards to a misunderstanding I had with a painter as to the cost of my project. I feel for you, friend.
  8. Thank you for the insight. Yes, think you are correct. I said screw it and just ordered a set off CJ. I'll compare them to my OEM units and see how they differ. At least I'll have the hardware.
  9. Thanks gentlemen, appreciate your help and comments. It does not appear that I can purchase the clips for this molding. Thanks to RPM, I have all the middle clips, just not the front. But, according to my Osborn Assembly Manual, there is a different clip used for the rear??? From this, it almost appears that no screw would pass through the back of the molding, which is screwy to me, as everyone states the molding is pre drilled to be screwed in at the back.....see photo. Note, E is front, F is rear. Is there a different type clip back there or what? Thanks!!!
  10. I'm struggling to figure out how the rocker panel moldings are attached to the rockers on my Mach. The moldings are original to the car but the car incurred some front end damage years ago and went through a repaint and assembly, none of which I did. When I removed them recently, I noted two screws in each molding, see picture. I've labeled the orientation of the pieces on the car, hole closest to the edge was at the front both sides. Looking at the Jim Osborn assembly manual, I see no screws passing through the molding itself. I'm wondering if someone ran screws through the moldings in order to secure them? Can someone advise? If someone incorrectly ran screws through my moldings, they are damaged. I believe they could be repaired and recoated but not sure how costly. Also, I'm not finding the hardware to reconnect them. Thoughts? The other option is I purchase re-pops. The re-pops come with all the attachment hardware, can anyone comment on the re-pops? Thanks, John
  11. Thank you, Buckeye! I actually went to your build thread to see if I could find a picture of that area but unfortunately your pictures are hosed. What an incredibly sad thing too, as that build is the best I've seen on the web. It was also an incredible motivator for me. Are you hosting your pictures anywhere, such that one can view them?
  12. Thanks Mike, welded in those floor supports about a year ago. Appreciate the input. Thanks, aslanefe
  13. I wished I'd known that. I'm curious, how did you come about that knowledge? The bad thing about stuff like this is that it's not fully pictured and seldom do they give a good descriptive. Had I known, I'd purchased the panel you speak of. I was actually looking at them a few days ago contemplating the purchase. I may still go ahead with it, as my wheel lip is dinged and only way to fix it is to fill it or apply a small patch. Can you comment on that outer wheelhouse? Thinking I'll purchase one and cut off what I need. Thank you!
  14. I'm welding up and fixing some things on the undercarriage before I paint it. The car was originally a 351 single exhaust Mach 1 for which I had dual exhaust put on years ago. They cut holes and crap for their hangers and such. You can see one right through the brake support bracket for which I've filled. Anyway, in the picture are four holes circled. Can anyone confirm that these belong here? Though I'm not sure what they are for, at least three look like they may belong here, not sure about the other. Can anyone confirm? Lastly, as this was a single exhaust car and I want to make it dual exhaust with factory like attachment points, are there any brackets that I need to order and weld under the car? I've done some research and I'm thinking not but don't want to overlook anything. Thanks!!!
  15. Yesterday, Christmas Eve, took on the left rear lower qtr panel. I don't know why, but working on the exterior body panels scares me. Anyway, after many measurements, cut out a piece from the available patch panel and fit it up. This is a quality panel, and while the side profile fits nicely, the underside does not. I jacked around for a long time trying to figure out how to make the underside look original and fit up to the remaining qtr by bending and hammering on it. Finally figured out I could cut reliefs in it, conform it to shape, and weld up the reliefs. A sheet metal guy would have figured that out real quick....dang dummy! The outer wheel house is rusted in that area as well and a patch will have to be made or cut out to complete the repair. Debating as to whether to attempt my very limited sheet metal skills to make the repair or cut it out of a purchased panel.
