Way cool! Great visuals. So, were you instructed to turn left at the dog?

Thanks for the compliments, guys! I really appreciate it! I'm looking forward to getting this one on the open road. Apparently, Woj wants to borrow it for a weekend, but I'm hesitant. I'm not sure I'll get it back, and if I do, I'm scared of what condition I'll get it back in!

Cheers
Dave

Wait a minute, before you loan it to our buddy Phil, keep in mind, myself being a fellow Mustang owner now, it might be in real good hands with me

Donít push your luck Mikey! Next thing you know, youíll be that Chevy turn coat doing burnouts leaving the car show and becoming famous on YouTube for all the wrong reasons!

Thanks guys! I've put 4.2 miles on it since being "done". Only thing I was having fits with was a leaky fuel bowl connector line, and it burping down to whatever antifreeze level it needed. Seems it's happiest about a 1" below the neck or so. With no expansion tank like the Galaxies have, the big top tank of the radiator needs some space to breath!

I FINALLY got my 8-track back. This took four months to tell me "Um...I can't fix it". And when returned, no evidence of anything being done to it...at all! PO'ed isn't the word I'm looking for.... I'm just glad it is back with me. So stay tuned for a future episode of "Fix your Old Radio". I can't find anyone to fix it, so ill dive into it myself. I mean, I taught myself how to paint....might as well teach myself how to repair a radio!

Cheers
Dave

One of the best feelings in the world. Driving a car or a motorcycle you built with your own two hands from the ground up. Good luck with the radio. I'll be "tuning in." Ugh... lol

A repair guy recommended over on Moparts for doing 8 track repair and restoration.

www.barrys8trackrepair.com

No personal history here, just going by what others have said.
