Is it complete, just minus the motor? Nevermind...

I've been "greasy the squeaky wheel." The weather has been so crappy this spring/early summer, that I didn't get out and drive like I usually do, until about July. I pulled the carb off one Mustang and sent it out to be rebuild, so it's dead. Polishing and driving another and all is well there. Trying to do some interior work on my S-code and collecting parts.

Then, my truck croaked and I had to get towed home on a rollback the other day. Easy fix (in a relative sense, if anything on a greasy old '68 pickup is ever easy)--just replaced the fuel pump and it's back on the road.

And on my weird little project, a '64 Comet Cyclone, I am wanting to take it up to the Ford Fever Classic at Woodburn this Sunday. I got it early spring and spent all my time replacing everything to get it running after it sat for 25 years. From the gas tank to the water pump, radiator, rebuilding the carburetor, a tune-up, rebuilding the brake booster and re-sleeving the master cylinder, etc, etc... Now it am (hopefully) on the final stretch. I replaced the front wheel cylinders and soft lines last night/tonight and am repacking wheel bearings and such; have the left done and buttoned up and am half and hour away from moving on to the rear. The I need to drain the tranny fluid and replace the filter, buy some rubber, and then it's on the road. Like that's all going to get done for the show/drags on Sunday. Right.

Fun times.

That Cyclone sounds like a cool project- you'll have to post some pics.

Last two weeks:
Overhauled heater (third time since I've owned this car)
New fuel tank and sending unit
New taillight harness
New headlight harness
New battery tray
New hood-to-cowl seal, clutch + throttle grommets, etc.
New shock tower hardware
New floor drain plates and a zillion miscellaneous plugs
New door strikers
New outside door handles

Next week or two:
Hang headlight buckets, headlight doors, + lower grille surround
New gauge feed + alternator harnesses
Install trunk + door weather seals
Clean up and reinstall door latch mechanisms
Headers + intake ceramic coated
New valve springs + seals (don't ask)
Dip head
Paint and detail engine
New firewall insulation
Reinstall steering column
New quarter ornaments
Decide whether to reuse, rechrome, or replace vent window assemblies and reinstall
Clean up and reinstall all windows + regulators
Filler hose + miscellaneous fuel lines

I'll most likely be out of money again by then. So near and yet so far.

on my 67 Fastback, I painted the dash this weekend and took part of my back seat to the paint store so they can match some dye to it and I can dye the dash pad and other items for the interior.

What kind of shape is the door in? How about the seat?

That's an amazing project. It's a great fastback you are building.
