Not deleting it, just moving the lines off the firewall.

The original box goes through the wall, are you going with an aftermarket set up?

I'll be using a Vintage Air system (former boss is a dealer and get's me a sweet deal) and do a bulkhead that goes into the fender well and run the lines behind the inner liners and bring them through another bulkhead with stainless hoses and AN fittings. We actually did this on a customer's '69 Mustang and I liked the clean look of the firewall so much I went home and did mine the same.

Looks great. I think my next on will be a 69. My 1st car was a 69 coupe 6 cylinder 3 speed (woohoo). Later bought a 69 fastback with some big engine in it that wouldn't crank once it got hot. Sold it for a song...(YES, I wish I had it back)!

Going to be keeping up with your build...good luck with it!

Well, cant take much credit for the hard work as I have a very hard working Dad to emulate (who just retired after 42 years at the SAME company!)

and I stay out of the NFL...them, basketball, soccer...all them only take one ball. I watch NASCAR

It was fun, however, playing cowboys and packers in the office this year...

Funny story with the looks of 69's...I more or less arbitrarily picked Mustangs. My dad had a '66 GT back in the day (long before kids), there was a 68 fastback a few blocks from our house...those kind of got the idea implanted. So I google "classic mustangs" and began writing down the years I like to start hunting for a project car (mind you...this is in the neighborhood of 10-11 years old...still VERY MUCH a dream....)

1969 Won. Quad headlights, sleek fastback, slightly bigger body...I was smitten!

well, my handwriting wasn't too good...so my sloppy "1969 Mustang Fastback" that I wrote on a piece of paper, I would later interpret to say "1961 Mustang Fastback"....For the life of me, I could not figure out why I couldn't find any pictures of a 1961 Mustang when I revisited the dream...

needless too say, I figured it out

As someone who is young and just starting a build, your story was definitely inspirational and it looks like your build is going great so far, definitely gonna keep up with this.

one of my biggest hold ups has been no air in my garage, but I have wanted to get a compressor I could paint the car with, well this appeared this week in my garage



I had a co-worker clearing out his dad's garage that he used to build racecars in. Sold it to me for $75 Solid, cast-iron Currie compressor

Electric motor needs a rebuild, sounds like they frankenstein'd it back together once in its life. I'm going to pop the head off the compressor and make sure it looks good, and bore scope the tank. I think I can get it in good shape for about $500 (and a new paint job..). Better than any other 80 gallon I've found.

I'll try and document it here for nay old air compressor nuts.
