Well, I was going to post pics of what I had accomplished last night, but that turned out to be NOTHING. So instead, You can see what I had accomplished three days ago. BTW: don't those exhaust manifolds look sweet?!! (Doug Thorley nickel plated headers on the way!)

Awesome! Looking real fine! Keep wrenching!

See my post for my latest adventure!
P.S. how did you get the photopoint picture to work? Mine is bad.

Looks awesome! But, so does your entire car.... Great job!

One day I'll completely restore the engine and bay to perfection. For now I chose to clean it up and drive it as a good looking daily driver....

Once my paintjob is done, my car will soon start looking as good as yours, except for the engine....

Why the many creases in the battery tray area and the radiator support? How come? Mine has virtually no creases, only one I believe.

I go to PhotoPoint, and enlarge the photo (not full screen, but not thumbnail either) and right click to pull up the properties box. Then I cut the URL info out and paste it to a blank Word sheet. I add the xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx.jpg stuff to the address. Then I cut the whole string from word and paste it into my post. Seems to work fine. Is this what you are doing?

I dunno....it came that way. I suspect that those pieces are repop's from an accident that the car was in in 1971.

I have seen many Mustangs with those creases. Mine had a lot, but I straightened it out with two c-clamps and two pieces of angle aluminum. I post the link to my profile. No joy....

It was bad enough seeing that great picture of your burgandy car, which is really nice. But those engine pictures are so rightous they make my pee pee hurt.

Thanks....A scientific combination (*G*) of a Dewalt 1/2" drill with SEVERAL style wire wheels, cups and other torture devices, 120, 220 and 400 grit sandpapers and four drywall sanding sponges. Oh yeah, a s#%tload of elbow grease too, but no Jasco, because I didn't want to risk it leaching out of cracks later.

Thanks. Doug Thorley's. Nice nickel plate...heavy guage (14) construction. I'm told they're are really nice, which is good, because they are not inexpensive.

Awsome!!! Great exaust too!!! hehehe. One thing though, I noticed you have a chrome water neck. I've noticed they tend to leek, and know others that have used them, and they also leaked. Anyone else had this problem?? Just something to watch out for, since that engine bay looks SWEEEET!!! Can't wait to see it at Knott's, up close and personal!!!

I was told that the o-ring type (this one is) doesn't leak, plus, I was told to make sure and sand off the chrome on the sealing surface in order to eliminate a dissimilar metal corrosion problem, so I did that too. I WILL be watching though. See you at Knott's!
