Yellow Mach 1 is back again!

It's looking real good Kevin, I use your "winter rebuild" thread as a guide for a lot of things. Great work and keep the pics coming.

Thanks guys! Its coming along. Hope to drop motor back in this week.
Geoff,
I got the clutch from Rock Auto. Its a M-PACT clutch kit. It is the 3 finger design. Same as the one that came off. Its for slightly modified engines. Nothing crazy. Didn't want a hard clutch to push.

Disc brakes all way around.

 Thanks Kevin. should be good to go. Diaphragm clutches are harder on the pedal for sure. My left calf muscle is way bigger than the right!!
 I'm looking forward to seeing the results and perhaps hearing your customer's comments.
Geoff.
PS, So I take it you don't want to come and do mine...……. again!

I learn something new every day!

I believe the owner of the car is on here but hasn't posted anything yet.  I told him about the site a while ago. 

For the right money I will work on anything!!!  Bring it on down!!

A little more progress this week. Should be dropping motor back in Friday night if all goes well. Painted the hood latch bracket. And powder coated shock tower caps, throttle bracket, and wiper motor cover.  Started putting stuff back together. Wrapped entire wire harness with new tape.  Little things here and there.  Getting closer.

Kevin, unfortunately I'll have to work on my own car again, don't have "the right money" anymore. 
Joking aside, I think that your work on this car shows what you're capable of. Great attention to detail and as I say about my own car "correct appearing to the casual observer" Who cares about "concours", it looks good and looks the part and that is what is important. Well done.
Geoff.

Is there something special about yellow models?
Looks like they turn magically to gorgeous machines these days.
Wonder when the magic will start affect the green ones!

73 modified Grandé 351C. Almost done. 
71 429CJ. In progress
