  1. Great work on the mirrors and air box. That’s one sweet looking ride
  2. Thanks for the replies guys, need that motivation to keep me going in those long cold English winters !
  3. Well I’m pleased to say that the car came back to me 2 weeks ago from the paint shop. I’m so pleased with it, the paint finish from the shop is just sublime. Now for the hard work of putting it call back together. Chris
  4. Pleased to say she’s finally been painted, found far more to do, new taillight panel, original LHD fender, original RHD door repairs etc, but finally she’s done. for those who may to know about the colour, I choose a VW pepper grey colour, hint of a gold pearlescent in the sun I’m so happy !
  5. Quick update, the car is still in the body/paint shop, progress a little slow, but some decent progress finally being made now. Panels all lined up and the doors had a lot of work on them to retain the original skins.
  6. Hopefully you’ll allow this post, I’m still working on the 69 restmod, but I’ve now bought a 68 fastback into the U.K. as my next resto project \! its been modified and looks like it’s got some form of mustang 2 front end. I haven’t decided what to do with them car yet, considering going modular engine, but before I start major surgery, I’d be interested to know if anyone here can identify what I have. I’d also be interested to see what your opinion of its is eg could I reuse it for say a hiigh powered 427, what are its limitations etc.- BTW the shock towers have been cut our, so intention of going back to them. cheers chris
  7. Thanks I’ll take a look at that
  8. Well under that intake was a bit of a mess, glad I decided to strip it down ned to think about what I do with bottom end, keep as is or stroke ?
  9. They look great, be interested to know how well they fit, any mods etc needed
  10. Whilst the body is away, I’ve just started to have a look at the engine. I know it’s a ‘69 302, from engine tag, but other than that no knowledge or history. never rebuilt a V8 before, so time to learn. Any tips you guys can give would be appreciated, thinking of going for some Aluminium heads to wake the engine up. Might go stroked as well. any tips/fed back on what works best, parts etc would be appreciated. Thanks Chris
  11. Thanks for your feedback to date and some great comments, keep them coming. off to see the car at the paint shop tomorrow, only been there a week so still time to get some more opinions chris
  12. Love that stance and great colour
