The rust repair is tedious - but has to be done right. Can't wait until I am through with that part. Scott.
Amen! Me too man, me too.

Re: Another new 71 owner

Not much new going on here... got the car back home this past week for a bit while I do some grunt work stripping the engine bay down. Body man needed the space for another car for a minute. But it feels good to see that the main fuselage is squared up & the heavy lifting on rust repair is done! :be...

Re: VICTORY!!! Finally

Congrats! I remember when I put a tko in the 69 Mach 1 I used to have... message board guys said it would fit without cutting no problem. BZZZZT... wrong! Either you cut the tunnel and/or mill the transmission case to get the angle of the dangle right. At least in my case. Glad you got it sorted out.

Re: Best Replacement Quarter Panels?

So a full quarter for a 72 is on the way and I'll have to swap the marker over as well. The 71's are out of stock and they don't have any plans on running a new batch anytime soon. I lucked out and got one of the last AMD 71 driver's side quarters late last fall/winter, but for the passenger side w...

Re: Another new 71 owner

Belated Welcome to the board. Nice to see new projects going. I particularly like that custom 4 speed hole in the tunnel before you started the repair. Hey, thanks! Yes, I hated to have to mess up one of the PO's sweet mods like that but on the other hand it was a good excuse to go for a manual shi...

I gotta change mine over from PB Apologies, I know you weren't asking me, but it looks like they're just using the forum's 'upload attachment' feature?

Re: Another new 71 owner

With the car at the body shop, I started disassembling the motorhome 440 I picked up for it last fall... only have about 20 minutes in on it, having to squeeze it in between other projects before work :D

Re: Another new 71 owner

I am doing the same thing, just learning how to weld - so working on the drivers floor pan, engine compartment, small patch in the trunk pan - before I move to the exterior portions of the car. Looks like you did pretty good with the floor pan. Good luck! Scott. I too have been down that road - jus...
