Re: It is a store room with gold or scrap?

What you have got there is made of unobtanium.

Go try and buy any of those parts over a counter and see the blank stares.

I learned to drive in one of those on my uncle's farm in Senekal.

After fitting the new 17" Magnum 500 wheel on the Mustang, I ran into a little snag. http://i302.photobucket.com/albums/nn104/jmvv/68%20Mustang/9dac5871-ef80-4c8c-a633-f4187799d9ca_zpstmd583sl.jpg The wheel studs were too short to allow proper engagement with the wheel nuts. I only had about 5mm of ...

Re: 68 Mustang Notchback (another one)

Today I feel rather chuffed, as I managed to install central locking in the Mustang's doors. It's rather deceiving ...

Re: 68 Mustang Notchback (another one)

Today was a milestone.

Got the electrics sorted and brought the dash to life.

It was great to hear the big V8 roar to life and have all my gauges working perfectly.

I did not have the intestinal fortitude to go with the pin-on letters. (I have yet to learn how to un-drill a hole :lol: ) I went the stick-...
