That's one fine Comet. The wheels look great.
Are those the 17" Magnums? They look awesome!
Yea, 17x8 billit magnum 500's. 4 in BS
I think those would look awesome on my car.
a few very subtle changes and a nice paint job some nice wheels AND WHAM ITS A KILLER COMET! cool looks great and has came a LONG way since the days of giving away banged up fenders and doors NICE JOB! Id be proud to drive it anywhere
Cut the windshield out of my parts car and got it cleaned up for installation in my Mav. The thing that sucked was I only salvaged about 6 of the windshield mldg clips off the parts car. I think the vinyl top my have had a grip on them which cause them to snap no matter how I removed them.
I also removed every switch and bulb out of the parts car since they are all in good shape. This parts car is quickly becoming an eye sore. I gotta get it stripped and gone soon.
Started working on repairing the gas tank for the kids 70. Also trying to secure a deal to pick up a 71 Comet.
Picked up the materials to install my windshield. Figure I'll give it a go myself.
adjusted steering. Great feeling.
was blowing fuses when turning on parking/headlights. traced it down to be the ...light switch. ordered one today, will be here in the morning...
leaving Monday for...Iowa......
Bought a 69 302 from the junkyard yesterday. Started pulling it apart today. Very clean for an untouched engine that's almost 45 years old. There's very little cylinder wear. And no marks on the retainers from the rockers. I could just about clean it and put it back together as is. I should end up with a stomping little motor soon.
may I ask...why not a roller motor... if you are starting from scratch?
This is just my everyday driver. I'm not going for all out power. My toy (67 Fairlane ht) is getting that. I'm looking to build a motor that's going to run strong for another 40 years.
finally got my new oil pump and pickup tube I ordered last week, so got that installed, waiting on new oil pan, should be here today....
