68 Coupe Pro Touring Build Pic Heavy

WOW, so now you can actually see my build due to the Photobucket crap that plagued us for so long...

Photobucket Hotlink Fix offered by bridgetroll.io for Chrome worked for me!

Post in Oct 2017 by Boss4Oh
One the FFcars.com Factory Five Forum I saw a post this morning for a fix for the photobucket disaster. I have personally tried the Firefox fix and it works. Here is the information from the other post on installing browser add-ons to correct the 3rd party hosting issues.

"Hi all, just read this on another forum and wanted to share it here as pictures are so important to sharing info about our hobby. I just copied the post so here it is and it seems to work with firefox for me.

Fix for seeing Photobucket pics

If you're using Google Chrome, go to the three dots on the right side of the screen and click them. A drop down should appear. Hover your mouse over "More Tools," and when the next drop down appears, click on extensions. Go to the link towards the bottom that says "Get more extensions." In the search box, type "Photobucket Fix," and hit enter. Click the install button and once it's done, you should be able to see photobucket pictures again.

For FireFox users, click on the three bars on the right side of the screen, then click on add ons. Click search for "photobucket hotlink" and click install. Same result."
I am using Chrome. I had a choice of three fixes pop up. I chose the first one. I just looked at an old thread of mine and also EdwardB's build thread and I can see all the pics in both.

Well I guess as you can see below, it's time to start a build thread. Enjoy!

Needed to reduce the size of the wheel for comfort and aesthetics. The 69 horn obviously didn't fit on the 68 either causing the horn to suspiciously not work. Works perfect after change.

I know you might not be a fan of plastidip, but it sure made a difference in the look of the front bumper/grill and rear bumper. And when I'm tired of it, I peel it off. Totally worth the $15 and time.

Quite possibly a time warp of dirt that I started with here!
Honestly didn't think I even had a tag on it it was so buried...

Not perfect, but I found the tag and the OG paint! 2.79 gears FWIW

Apparently I overlooked the before pictures in the front. Previous owner put in the Granada disc brakes.

After front brakes paint, I have always brushed mine on, but did spray the rear black. The red is brushed.
