I think most non-concours cars from (ahem) 50 years ago have had many modifications, but it does give me more clues as to what to do.  It's a puzzle I'm trying to reassemble without a "here's what it looks like finished" example to go by.

Sorry i dont have any vacuum to the distributor and no valve on the waterpump so not much help there I'm afraid

I like the rims. Looking for similar ones myself but want only polished aluminium as after 2 sets, I know the chrome won't last over here.
Do you have a link to these?

Google "barzetta america" and i think you will find many who sell them.
So you have had bad experiences with chrome, maybe I should rethink it to.
If the chrome dont last in The Netherlands I don't Think it will do much better in Sweden

Hallo, haven't had time to do so much on the mustang but i thought i do an update on the ones that i have done.
I have mounted speakers in the front doors.

Three point seat belts in the back seat, feels much safer for the Children.

It's been a long time since I bought tubes to manufacture a couple of subframe connectors, but then I have not been done to do it.
Now I finally got it done

But the best I have saved for last, I have finally bought new Wheels, nothing extreme but I think it got a lot nicer.
8x17 inch rims with 225 tires in front and 9x17 inch rims with 255 tires in the rear.

That's all I've been up to lately

Very nice work! Can you provide a bit more detail on the rear seatbelts?

Thanks!

The seat belts are an aftermarket kit that a friend did not need any more. unfortunately they are in a bit too modern style but the important thing is that the children sit properly and safe.
The mounting was much simpler than I expected, I had two point seatbelts original and I could use both of the attachment points for these.
Just unscrewd the old and screwd in the new ones, more or less.
The roller was also quite easy to assemble, if you look under the shelf in the trunk, there is a hole in each corner that I drilled up and used for the rollers, I also put a large washer on the underside.

Two weeks ago, my mustang stopped in the yard and refused to start again.
Something in the ignition was wrong, not quite sure what, but got it going as it should again tonight.
I think that the ignition system is simply worn and needs a proper overhaul but it is nice that it runs again.
But while I was looking for the problem of the ignition, I came to think of another problem that has irritated me for a long time.
The tachometer in the car does not work and according to the gay my dad bought the car from it stopped working when they changed distributor and ignition coil.
I've been thinking about plugging it in but don't know how to connect it, but I thought maybe someone here knows how to connect it and wanted to help.
I don't know if it works with the parts that are mounted on it today or if the tachometer works but i would bee very grateful if someone could help me make it work.
Here are some pictures of what it looks like today and some cables that are not connected to anything, wonder what they are for?
