What do you all think of starting a new Today I... the current one got to be very long and unmanageable on a phone.

Same here, although 90% of the time I'm on my PC anyway.

Speaking of Box... what ever happened to him?

I think we my have upset him as he kept comparing Miatas to Trans AMs and wasn't getting the responses he was looking for. Bright guy though, I enjoyed his ideas and posts.

What?! There is no comparison.  A convertible roadster with modern technology vs (no offense) 45+ year old overweight junk.  If it was a DD he was looking for, a Miata would be a no brainer there.

Today I... finally got around to removing the bed from my truck.





I had originally intended to fix a broken shock mount.  Then, I found this staring at me:







Not happy about this, but it probably explains the P0442 I've had for months now. 

A new fuel pump/sending unit and locking ring is already on the way.

In addition to this, I'm going to need the rear driver side leaf spring shackle bracket and likely some other small items that I haven't found yet lol.  Grrrrrr

OH!  Wait I totally forgot to post that, in addition to the new catalytic converter that I had installed earlier, I have also replaced both exhaust manifolds.  I had no choice.  While I was in there, I also dropped the unwilling cash on new front shocks.  the old ones were rusted straight through.

I did manage to get a pic of the passenger side after install.  The driver side, not so much.  I had to remove a lot of nonsense to even get to the old one.  Then, after everything was back together, I really could not get a clear pic.  But, here's the passenger side. 



I gave it a test drive after all that exhaust work and.... WOW!!  What a friggen difference!  No more CLACK CLACK CLACK..... at startup and it no longer sounds like a jet taking off at WOT.  In addition to that, maybe now the driver side manifold will stop burning through the #1 cylinder ignition wire.

You and me both.  So there's only about 3/8th of a tank, but still... 

I'm not even pulling the old pump until the new one gets here.  I don't want dirt dropping down into the tank and I cannot stand the fuel fumes in the garage.

I had the entire car ready for final blocking, when it became apparent the reproduction fenders I had were just not gonna cut it. I dug out a set of originals and used them instead. In the first pic that's an original fender before it got primed.

It was a lot of work, but totally worth it.

72PB, Mustang looks great! never having seen one in that state, interesting how they did the rear spoiler into the quarter panel. That last shot you posted makes the rear look like dodge charger (no offense meant, LOL)

No offense taken! I love Chargers!

The quarter extensions are a strange thing Ford did. Same with the fender extensions/headlight buckets.

I almost never read this thread so late to the party.  Paint job looks outstanding!

I painted a 69 Mustang fastback (428 CJ powered...) with my buddy who owned it back as a very young 20-something.  Your pics brought back memories.  I think we used the same red, or very similar.  Is that what Ford called "Candy Apple Red"?

LOL!! 

Yes, the new fuel pump should be here by the weekend.  That's the easy part.  I'm really not looking forward to all that rust repair on the frame.  I might even pull the whole thing around the side of the house so that I can sandblast the really bad spots.

I did the primer work outside, but paint and clear I did in the garage. I had plastic down, and wet the floor down heavily. Had a few fans removing the fumes. It surprisingly didn't totally destroy the garage. lol

Today I bought a 70-72 front bumper I found on Craigs list and started stripping it to verify the condition of the Endura rubber. It checks out as far as being straight and not twisted. The Endura isn't lifting due to internal rust as happens to many. The bumper was kept as a "spare" by a guy who built a drag car and installed a lightweight fiberglass bumper. It's been stored indoor since the early 80's!  Grey lacquer primer, over blue lacquer, over red lacquer primer, over white lacquer paint that appears original. Will completely strip it to uncover the extent of any damage, then sell. I couldn't resell it with the possibility the next owner might be disappointed and I could tell by looking at it the people who previously did bodywork on it didn't know how to work with Endura.  I've redone several of these bumpers for people so perhaps whoever buys it will have me prep & paint it also.

A lot of 20 teen Mazda 3's got this color, wife's old car included.  They had a tinted clear coat also so body shops "love" to color match.  Washed and in the sunshine it simply sparkles.

Today I got the tail panel of my '67 Camaro in epoxy primer after installing lots of new sheet metal from the rear seat area back. Needed to keep everything in garage from getting over spray on it and thought ya'll would get a chuckle out of my method. Had to work quick as I knew storms were on the way. 15 seconds after I put the last thing back in the garage the sky opened up FL style with a deluge.

Ha!  Very creative!

Yesterday I... put the new fuel pump on my truck.  Oh man that locking ring gave me a FIGHT coming off!  I ended up having to drown the whole thing in PB Blaster and using an air hammer to convince the rust to break loose.  It took a solid hour, at least, to get the locking ring off...  2 mins to install the new pump and new locking ring.



Got it out, though.  It's a shame because that fuel pump otherwise worked fine.

[/url]

Brand new AC Delco parts.  Not cheap but at least it's OEM.





Installed, aside from the one vapor line, because the fuel pump line rusted off inside the connector.  I don't think I'll be able to save it.



Time to hunt for that connector.

All the talk of ebay, i finally bit the bullet and ordered brake line material the other night. Supposed to be here mid next week. Against my better judgment I ordered a flairing tool from eastwood, yesterday and it was on my porch this morning. Hopefully it will do the job.

Eastwood tool does a nice job, need a good vice to hold it.

Uhh... that may be so, but I happen to have purchased a bench vise from Eastwood years ago.  They had a vendor truck set up @ Carlisle, so I dropped $90 on the spot.  Got it home, it worked for less than a week before the worm gear inside stripped out.  Couldn't find the receipt so I had to eat the cost of that.

Then, to replace that, I bought a DeWalt vise from Amazon and it's lasted through the hardest beatings I've given it.  Hell, the bench it's attached to is starting to give out... yet the vise holds up strong.  I think I paid maybe $125 for it.

I have purchased a lot of stuff from eastwood over the years. All of the stuff I have gotten has been ok, never had a problem. I think I would have at the least called them if a tool went bad after a week, especially a vice. I have a craftsman I bought at least 30 yrs ago still works great.
For the flairing tool, although it wasnt cheap - it was on sale though!- I decided to take a chance with it. I have read both good and bad reviews. Probably both times I will ever use it and didnt want to spend $250+ for the next level.
