Sick pics, that's nails right there :cool:
Next silly question: what size brake unions are these? I’ve discovered they’re not 3/8 - 24 / UNF....
Thanks guys, that's great. Just wanted to be sure before bending any brake lines
Can anyone provide a picture of the engine bay brake line routing from the m/cylinder? I have a t-piece and brake light switch (not shown) as well...
If you honed .010" by hand, I'd be more concerned about the bore being true top to bottom.
Very nice. So this allows larger rear wheels?
Digging the fuel filler cap mod too
Yeah that's killer. Wonder what front arches he grafted into the rear quarters?
That bracket looks organic, like it grew there. Its the details like that which have me hooked on this build
It came with the '66 axle already fitted, so I already know it will fit with the 14" 4" backspace steelies.
New years thread bump, and a question.
I have a 63 Falcon with a '66 Mustang 8" axle, albeit currently out of the car and in pieces (flange to...
That welding is phenomenal!!! What did he use to fold that plate over for the gussets?

Wow, getting on a year since I updated last.
In that time I've replaced the front floor pans/footwells, as they consisted of a sour...
Really enjoying this thread!! That diff holding fixture is neat.
Definitely one to follow for me, I'm building a 63 2-door sedan, so this is prime-rib winter mojo-boosting material
Reading this thread neatly coincides with the Eric Rickman article, written by Pat Ganahl, which I'm currently reading in the March 2011 copy of...
Thank you guys I think that's answered my question really. Yes my roller is geared. The reason I ask is I happened upon an old cast roller which I...
Silly question perhaps, but what would the advantages and disadvantages be of mixing diameters of dies on a bead roller? In practical terms, does...
Nice! Nice and slow speed too I hope
Wanted to share a few shots of my bead roller project. Its funny. After looking on here and getting some great design ideas, I thought I'd take...
The bracket was probably welded to the chassis rail rather than bolted for clearance reasons when swapped to the v8. As you can see from my first...
Not so easy being as I am in the UK (duty plus shipping = $$$), and its only the bracket I need.
As I have discovered in the helpful responses to my Falcon build thread, its seems theres plenty of folk on here very clued-up on all things...
To be fair you're probably right. As long as you reinforced it like you say, and the cars aren't massively heavy and are stripped bare, as long it...
I was thinking the same thing
Following this avidly, loving the look and style your going for.
Question: did you weld the roof chop from the inside or outside?
Cars have been downhill since the mid 90's......
I suspect globalisation has made cars much the same as over here in the U.K. I feel its...
Bit more done. I have pressed on with that rotten rear quarter, and welded oin the repair section. But since these pictures were taken I have cut...
