Our 73 Mach1
#31
New seat. Got this to get around since when I rescued this Mustang it had 1.5 good front seat. I'm being really loose on that 0.5 was a good seat. Regardless I like these. The height adjuster bracket wouldn't clear the front of the seat riser. So I initially had to use the bottom hole (highest setting). Being 6'2" it wasn't going to work.

Took them to the upper level of the garage and got out the 4 1/2" angle grinder. Cut off the bottom two holes and good to go. The seat tracks on that hole have to mount to the left or the right side of the bracket. I offset it to be more toward the door. I like it but I think I'm going to try the holes closer to the transmission tunnel. Then see which I like better.

After this piece though now it's time to get serious about get her all sanded down, body work as needed, and getting the metal all sealed up. I still have to finish pulling the last 10% of the dash out too before that.

The kids have been watching Bob Ross. Notice the style of the trees? Let's just put a happy,[/align] little Mustang right over here.

Got the engine gauges, the climate control levers, and all the trim off the center of the dash. Discounted all the dash frame, and removed all the switches but the wiper switch. The tabs on the back of the speedo wiring harness and the speedo cable are broken off. It also appears the wiper switch knob tab is broken off as well. So I'm struggling to get my speedo/tach and the wiper switch out to remove the dash frame.

Today was the day! After 3, maybe 4, rounds I have won the battle of dashboard removal. Still have a few piece to remove. The victory is that it is out of the car. Have to get the garage reorganized and then the heater, wiring, and steering column are to follow. Steering column will sit where it is for awhile though. Have to drive down the street soon to do some interior welding.

...and does anyone have any idea what this wire setup goes to? I haven't really looked very hard to see what is missing this or just to simply web search or parts manual the numbers. For the most part though everything seemed to be plugged and installed on the back of the dash. The purple tag reads:

Found it in the manual. Clock wiring harness. I'll have to go back and see what was still hooked up to the clock on my center console. This maybe be an extra.

Those are bulbs. Found it in the parts manual. See above. She still starts. Just drove back into the garage after pulling the dash out. Mother Nature has better lighting than my garage does.

Weird. For some reason I thought it would not start with the gauges out if you have a factory tach. That's good.

That's good for me for now. I'm curious now if that is correct and it shouldn't run with the gauges out. You should see the bypasses I'm trying to sort out under the hood. She runs and runs well but just about everything under there is setup to make it run.
