You could try jumping around the solenoid (+ terminal of solenoid to S terminal (red/blue wire) to see if it turns over (make sure car is in neutral first!).

Finally, I also changed the solenoid and the same noise and behaviour around. So next step battery :wink:

Hi all,

This past week I have been working significantly on the car.
Finally I am not doing Fastback, CalMustang got my payment and told me that if I am lucky I will receive the quarter panels in June, so it makes no sense to me.

The car has a lot of new part:

1. Starter
2. Starter Solenoide
3. Batery
4. Front discs with blue calipers
5. Performance Shocks absorbers
6. Valve cover, Chromed
7. Oil
8. Oil filters
9. Air Filter Chromed
10. Clifford Headers
11. Two flowmasters
12. Exhaust line to be mounted
13. Termostat to be mounted
And many cosmetic items and exterior trims.







here a quick video of the engine with open headers with the standard headers

Here a quick video with the clifford dual headers

Somehow you made a 6 cylinder sound like an 8!
Thanks bro. That it was exactly what I intended. Indeed the headers are called 6=8. It was a way to make the engine happier without doing a swap (shipping a V8 to Spain could be very costly).

Hi guys, I have been busy lately due to my father illness and he has recently past away. Now I think things will move forward faster in the process, lets hope. He was helping me with recommendations, last day a life we did the pins in the mustang hood



And today and yesterday I have done some painting on the engine driver side and some sanding and dash painting (not 100%perfect yet).

I had no comments lately as there was no progress, now there have been a lot of progress

I did sand the car completely


then the fastback kit got in Spain


when I sent the car to a paint job place, and stripped apart


and now is taking shape again!


and more shape



and even more shape!


Now is looking far better than lately, the paint job place had the car 10 months only stripping it out, but mounting looks simpler to them, not sure why

All I can say is wow! That’s been quite a journey, but it will all be worth it in the end when you have a gorgeous car. As the owner of a 66 2+2 I can say that you will love it. I’m sure it will be like nothin else in Spain. I am looking forward to following your progress. Enjoy!
