  1. I am in the exact same boat. Looking to rebuild a numbers correct carb for my CJ. What did it cost? I found a new local guy I have never used before who is going to charge a couple hundred. Would like to go with someone who has a track record. Would like to know cost before going in that direction.
  2. I have to admit, I did not even know this was an option. You just need a paypal account. Easy as 1, 2, 3. I’m sure any amount would help.
  3. Following……. Where does this chart originate? Is it in a manual or book?
  4. I bought one at West Coast Classic Cougar for my 351 Cleveland. Fit perfectly. Try them.
  5. Yes. I was going to sell it, but now I’m going to keep it for now. I now have 5 cars total. All in various states of dis-repair. I’ve got to stop buying cars and start restoring them.
  6. It has been almost a year, but true to his word, Bruce gave me first shot at it when he decided to put it back up for sale. Thank you Bruce. Bruce texted me on Wednesday to see if I was still interested. I drove 12 hours to get there on Sunday and it is in my garage now. I can’t wait to get to work on it. Bruce has done all the hard stuff already. Plenty more to do and more parts to buy. This car goes to the front of the line in my garage. Now I have a brother to my 1970 Mach 1.
  7. Trade for a 69 Mustang Fastback project anyone? Anyone have a 69 Fastback project gathering dust in their garage? I will trade you my just completed restored 70 Torino for it (listed in Portland OR craigslist). I just bought a 69 basket case Mustang fastback. It needs everything. I am happy to have it, but I would love to have a project that is a complete car.
  8. I was like you 8 years ago when I bought my 70 Torino. I knew nothing and did not grow up around other guys who worked on their cars. No one in my family worked on cars when growing up. None of my current friends worked on cars. Even with those disadvantages I learned how to restore my car. I learned everything by obsessively stalking the forums and watching thousands of videos. I did it on my own. By myself. You said you want to learn by doing. You are right. That is the only way. When most of these guys started working on cars they were just teenagers working on their car in the driveway and even at the curb. You just have to start with something small. Figure it out and build your knowledge little by little. Unfortunately, it is very unlikely someone in a car club is going to take you under their wing and help you with your project. They probably have their own project they need to work on. I would just keep watching the videos and doing the research. Good luck.
  9. Just offering an opinion. Personally, if you are doing the work yourself, ANY intact 69 fastback is worth 5K in ANY condition. But, if you are paying other people to do the work, I would keep walking. By kit car, I assume you mean a fastback conversion? I really don’t know why someone would go to all that trouble if they could spend a little more money for the real McCoy.
  10. Good timing on my question and your advice. Coincidently, a local guy was selling a pristine center A/C vent so I ran out and bought it from him last night. Hopefully, now I won’t have to cut or modify or put filler panels in my new dash.
  11. It took a month and a half. I ordered October 31 and got it mid December. https://www.cjponyparts.com/classic-auto-air-perfect-fit-elite-air-conditioning-system-r-134a-1969-1970/p/CAA20185/
  12. I bought an A/C kit from CJ pony parts to add A/C to my 1970 Mach 1. Do I need to have an lower A/C Mach 1 Dash to make it work? Or can I simply cut the holes in the dash for the vents? I bought an A/C upper dash pad, so I am good there. https://www.cjponyparts.com/classic-auto-air-perfect-fit-elite-air-conditioning-system-r-134a-1969-1970/p/CAA20185/
  13. I don’t have TMI covers so I am no expert. Just throwing this out there, but could it be that they were designed that way? Those TMI covers and foam really stick out on the sides. That gives a really snug fit, but would make it just a little more difficult to slide in and out of the seat. Maybe they designed them to allow easier access when getting in and out. I would put them in the car and see if it feels off when you sit in the seat. If it feels right, I would just leave it. Because I have to be honest, I would not notice they were off kilter unless you pointed it out to me.
