So NoReigns, when are you and your husband going to quit your day jobs and start restoring and modifying cars for a living? You could be like the Ringbrothers minus all the CNC stuff they make.

You are so funny. I'd LOVE to quit my day job and build cars for a living. It'd be my dream! Unfortunately though, I don't think it's going to happen any time soon.

Today we tackled installing the engine and transmission. Aaron had planned to have a friend come down last weekend to help with the install but at the end of the day it just wasn't ready to be put in. This weekend we had no help so it was just us. Engine was a breeze but transmission gave us a run! But, we made it, and are still married.

It's a two part primer, 1:1 and you can reduce if you want but usually only if you are using it as a sealer. You should try it for sure.

Thanks, Lynn. No Charger in my garage, must be thinking of someone else.

I do have a Challenger. It is awesome, I'm completely head over heals for it. If it'd ever stop raining maybe I could drive it sometime. A few weeks ago my sister and I took it out and we put about 100 miles on it for the day. Fun, fun times. Mopar people may be different, but man do they appreciate seeing them out on the road.

We mounted the starter relay and voltage regulator. We replaced the distributor with a new unit and are going to install the Pertronix conversion kit. We also scored a non-a/c heater box that is in great shape. Tonight we installed a new blower motor and gaskets and in she went.

I've enjoyed this part of the build more than I'd ever thought.

Looks absolutely beautiful, and if I could afford it I'd have a cuda or challenger as well.

If there was ever a time to become physically attracted to a car, now would be the time.

My father in-law had a '69 Mach 1 back in the day and bought it new. Sweetest car he'd ever had he says. Though the suspension would barely give the tires any traction back then. He couldn't afford the payments after a year and had to sell it.

Thanks guys.

We've been block sanding the last few days. Again we're working on getting the car into epoxy to protect it from the weather and then we can get the car running before bodywork and paint.

We laid out the hood scoop template to drill the holes for the scoop. I forgot to take a picture of the scoop on..

great job!!! looks great!

wondering if i could get some advice from you?

I'm having some trouble with my car idling. i would start it up and in park it idles fine but once i put it into drive it wants to die. I have a edelbrock 600 cmf carb. that is brand new. i already tried adjusting the fuel/air mixture screws and don't really seem to make any difference. not sure whats up. could the timing have anything to do with it?

any feed back would help

Wow, another NoReins build thread. Nice work so far. Glad you've got another toy until the other car is back. Is your husband going to get any of these or are you hoarding them?

Well, he's not letting go of this one very easily lol. Like for instance we got in a heated argument over what color the dipstick should be. If you look at the pictures of the engine you can see it's in his words "not the right color blue" and "it should match the engine." So, I did get my way for the time being but he said it would be only a matter of time till someone points it out and then I'd want to change it. So NO ONE point it out, I like it.

Doubtful. That's just the standard 68-69 GT wheel. I don't think anyone reproduces them in alternate sizes. Besides that fact that 18s or 20s especially on classic mustangs tend to look tacky, unless very tastefully done. LCC has a beautiful set on his fastback, but having big rims generally doesn't look good on these cars.
