Hey Frank, post some pics of the powder coated front end when you get it together. I would like to check it out. I am in the process of cleaning and painting all of the front end pieces and underside, and engine compartment. Thought about powder coating....
will do...I put it in the street today......
Found this today after hearing some noise that didn't quite sound right.....
So while working at pulling the intake, my neighbor came by with his boat and dropped off a bucket of these he had just harvested, so I quit working on it and went at shucking!.........................
Spent 2 hours yesterday removing my header gasket yesterday only to find out today I would be replacing the turbo gasket today. Just a small leak. Also changed the valve cover and gasket the other day.
here you go...
took it out for a spin......
Pulled the engine and tranny
Today I finished phase 1 of my custom wiring job (all wires were run outside the engine bay vs using the bulkhead connector). Great to hear that old horn again! Everything checked out good with dash assembled and 12v at every wire when it should be. It's been a very long three weeks. It should go back into the shop for final body work in a few weeks.
Drove it to the 76 and filled it with 91.
Replaced the throttle pedal with an older Ford pedal that is made from rubber and not plastic.
I put on some Keystones on my Grabber. I just had to do it LOL
I'm going to be selling off the originals soon, the deep dish trim rings and the center hub caps.
