door mirrors have been sanded down, but waiting for a warmer day to pain them in top coat:

Back on the inside. All internal vent hoses and main loom in, so put in dash section in together with clock section

Next interior step is to trial fit the dash top and then wait for warmer days; headliner and screen fit is next.


In the meanwhile bought some vac and heater hoses, so next few jobs are to fit these, accel cable to pedal etc, etc ....

So the dash pad is now in, finally I get to see what the interior might look like after weeks of work!

Ordered the front windscreen spacers and rear restraining supplementary bows direct via Ebay global shipping method - to my door in 5 days, decent price and great service, thanks Kentucky Mustang

Seats going away to be recovered in next 2-3 weeks.

Next step is do the head lining and front screen myself - not taking any notice of what folks in the UK say. If I can restore this, I'm sure I can do a headlining and windscreen installation.

Just spent a few hours reading your thread.
Very inspiring - so close to completion.

My recent purchase (70 Mach 1 M Code) was originally white but now red.

Makes me want to return it to original! The option is there as the paint and body is not that good butbetter than your start out though

Well done and look forward to the finished product.

Guys, thanks for the comments it is appreciated.

Not too much progress as so cold over here in England (OC or 32F for about 10 days now) and I have to push the car out into the open to work on it
Hopefully some pics to follow in the next 2 weeks before I'm off to sunny Spain!

So some more bits and bobs done.

All the OEM trim is cleaned up and looks really good, relieved as the repop stuff is useless
New rear back up lights
Headlining sound insulation in pre-headlining
Found the front and rear screens out and starting to clean them up, not sure about front screen, top tint looks a bit iffy, might go for new screen, shame as front and rear are both original tinted Carlite screens
Rear interior 1/4 panels - all painted proper interior colour -used the "proper" US supplied vinyl prep stuff, bloody useless, cracked when top coat on it. Had to rub back down, use the UK supplied plastic primer and then final colour

Seats gone away now for retrim.

Chris

So got the headliner in today. A tip donít use the 3M spray glue, it gets everywhere..........


Lots of other small jobs have been done over last few weeks: door handles, chrome, outer wheel arches (well 3 out of 4 as the dodo's at Ecklers sent me 2 no RHS rear instead of front and rear)


Engine getting closer to being fired up; new carb. Alternator, coil, modified vacuum tree etc.
Looks like I will need to fab up a carb to throttle bracket, the standard ford cable wont fit my new Edelbrock

Looking good!

FYI, Edelbrock makes a ball and socket adapter for the carburetor which will allow your factory throttle cable to snap right on. You will likely have to grind on the throttle cable bracket to make it fit at the back of the carburetor.
