I agree I will probably get that rear quarter sorted and flat black it again for a while just to tide me over,car has been painted twice due to the Cali Sun destroying the paint :(

It was Factory Silver but Silver is boring so dont car for Original paint,then it was Blue I will probably end up doing it Blue again but want a cheap paintjob maybe even Rutsoleum Roller Job?

I mean I cant make it any worse ;)

 

There is always an alternative.

It's a shame that Earl Scheib, the king of the $99 paint job is no more, or else you could have given it a quick blow over before it hit the shippers...

 

The stores that are left are all franchises now and I don't think they do the same *quality and budget minded work they used to...

Mustang IIs are definitely the 'shitter's choice, though you need a Pinto under the bonnet rather than a V8...

A couple of weekends and a catering pack of Brillo pads should see that matt black changed to matt blue with silver patches - like a summer's day sky :)

Because the V8 in question is easily outpowered by a Pinto.

To be honest the 4 cylinder ones are easier to come by than you would imagine out there ;)

I didnt really want a 4. Didnt mind a 6 but it was the overall car that won here the engine was just what it happened to have ;)

Well, for starters she was alive when that picture was taken - these days she's errr, well, she's not as fit as she used to be - presumably Herr von TEH Junkman prefers his women slightly more lively than Farrah is these days.

I didnt even know she had croaked :(

Now I cant disagree with you in standard form but its a replacement engine it was a short block with new internals but you have to add the ancilleries and some tinware. the rebuilders make a 302 to suit everything across the board that had a 302 so the specific gas crisis restrictions arnt there on this engine ;) not sure what it does but more than the 139 the original would of ;) It does have cats though cuz Californian Smog innit! There comming off and getting cashed in ;)

Don't worry about that, I've done transverse FWD and injection, it's not so bad.  I'd do it again, but preferably as an additional vehicle, which would have to replace Giffer.

 

As for booking your time off, it's going to be week commencing Monday April 16th, which is my birthday.  We're probably looking at Wednesday 18th, High Noon, at Mick's Burger Van at the top of Portsdown Hill.
