    ceciletf18 reacted to smh00n in Trunk/rear fixed seat sealer panel   
    Try as I might, the interweb has not given up any details on what seals the trunk compartment off from the passenger compartment when the rear seat is fixed on my '70 sportsroof.
    I want to stop gas fumes coming through from the trunk as much as I can, so was there a panel that did this? And if there was, who stocks new ones?

    There will be a car show Sat Aug, 27th in my home town of Sardinia.  Last year there was over 100 cars and they expect that much or more this year.  I hope to have my heap there and and my sons 65 c10 and my 63 F100.  
    They have 25 different awards to be given out.
    My wife and I (more her) own a mom and pop restaurant in the middle of town.  We have our own award to give to which one we like the most.  I will prob have my son, who has the C10 pick. He's 9 so it's hard to tell what he will like the most.  
    Registration is from 9 am to noon.  Awards at 4:00, 10 dollar entry fee.

    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.

    Good thing my wife isn't a member on this blog.  But I think today had to be just about the perfect afternoon.  Shortly afternoon I hopped in the stang and just drove in the country and trough a couple small towns for about an hour and a half.  Then I pulled into the driveway and gave her a nice bath head to toe.  Did get into detailing, but there was nothing pressing to fix.  Nothing unexpected or unwanted happened during the drive and the car performed decently.  Not that I wouldn't have wanted the wife along but sometimes is nice to be alone on the drive.  I didn't even bother turning the radio on, just listened to the sound of the exhaust.
    Anyone else get out and enjoy the afternoon?

    ceciletf18 reacted to prayers1 in Need advise on adjustable Coil Overs   
    My goal is to be able to adjust the front end ride height w/o removing or cutting coil springs.
    Within the past 2 years, all of my front and rear suspension has already been replaced . Since then I have been cutting Coil Springs and adding lowing blocks to achieve the ride height I want. I want to go lower and fine tune it to the wheels I have.
    I'm going to get a set of 1" lowering leaf springs and use the 1/2" lowering blocks for adjustment.
    For the front I'd like to get a set of Coil Overs that will allow me to adjust the ride height.  I am not so interested in the valving end of it.
    There are so many Coil Overs to chose from and they are very expensive. I'm wanting to  keep my Upper & Lower Control Arms and just get a set of Coil Over's that will adapt.  But the main function is ride height adjustment, preferably 1-3".
    Am I looking in the right direction or is there something else.
    Another thought, cost? Not looking to spend too much.
    Thanks all for your help!

    I picked up an oversized fiberglass boss 429 hood scoop that does have an internal mounting flange on the sides and rear.
    I am planning on drilling 4 holes down each side and 3 across the back. Then using some bolts with a rubber washer on each sandwiched between the scoop and hood to dampen the friction a bit. What would you guys suggest?

    ceciletf18 reacted to MN69Grande in Wrecks To Riches   
    I thought this was a fun build.  I like the paint but think I'd personally swap the wheels out.  The one thing I'm trying to wrap my head around is the math.  They said they spent 40k on the car and parts (seems low) and 310 hours on the build.  It sold for 56.5k.  Now if you were paying straight rates at shop that is at least 20k in man hours probably closer to 25k.  Even if you own the business and pay 1/2 that, it doesn't seem like a lot of profit.  But most the time was volunteer time I think.  Not that I'm knocking them building the car I just always have a laugh at the prices and profits they show on reality shows.

    ceciletf18 reacted to indianfiremach in '70 Grabber Orange Mach 1 Resto   
    Hello all, I wanted to re-introduce myself now that I'm back with a new project. Last month I picked up a 1970 Mach 1 that was a little rough, but looked like it had an interesting history. It's a Grabber Orange 'DSO 89' car, loaded with options including shaker hood, tach, tilt, am/fm, deluxe seat belts, fold-down, AC, PS, PDB, intermittent wipers, convenience group, bumper guards, and a few others. The car was ordered new by a Ford executive, and delivered to Ford Headquarters. The car itself has been sitting untouched for 20 years waiting for a new owner to rescue it. The car's pretty straight, but still needs a lot of work and parts. I'm going for an 'as-delivered' look, but will stop short of concourse, and I may even put a T5 in there since I'm partial to manual shift cars. Thanks for reading my long post, I'll try and keep the thread updated as I go.
    Here's some photos of the car:
