Mark - I know it takes a lot of effort, but a friend just picked up a nice one for $450.  Another local Mustanger bought a parts car that had a decent one to restore.  They are still out there if someone really wants one.

No you get a HUGE pass for bringing a car back from the dead. And no side stripes on a Mach 1!!!
And I was just reminded how timeless Cragar mags are!!!!!

Thanks! lol

Here is a link for a  complete repair of a concourse-level urethane bumper.  While there might be different ways and materials used by others - Chuck (c9zx) has made this process work and his urethane still looks new!  I saw it yesterday!

Thought I would throw this out there relative to the Side Stripes on Mach 1's and Verts since I know it is a pet peeve of Ray's...

Just using 1972 as an example according to the Ford records...

6,401 convertibles produced and 136 came with side stripes...that's 2 out of every 100 cars!

43,297 Fastbacks produced and 15,517 came with side stripes...that's approximately every third car!

How about Magnums in 1972...

296 convertibles got them or roughly 4 out of 100 cars.

6,292 fastbacks got them or about 15 out of 100 cars.

Merry Christmas

My wife pointed that out as well.  I guess... technically... since its name is "Frankenstang," (Frank for short)...



OK - ya got me there.   whistling


I just had a thought: roughly 60% of the car visible in that pic, came from OMS (bumper, bumper fillers, grille, headlight doors, sport lamps, emblem, valance, hood locks, fenders, signal lights, front indicator lights & bezels, quarter panels, door handles & locks, windshield trim, decals...  about the only things in the pic that didn't come from OMS are the car itself, the windshield, doors, hood, wheels, and license plate & frame.  LOL!

Cool drag car!   Powder coated chrome bymper is an interesting alternative to the urethane.  So car is a 1F02H originally, right?

Last month I reinstalled my urethane bumper back on for the third time after refinishing it yet again. I love the look of the urethane bumper but I’ve such a hard time with the finish cracking. I’m hoping it holds up better this time.

Going fast is fun but life is short so slow down and enjoy the ride Big Grin Frank
