I haven't done anything more to mine since last post...been going round n round with the shop that butchered my 1:1 and the parts store that sold me bad parts (but won't honor the extra labor I have to pay because of their bad parts) all week...sigh. HOPE to get some done this week coming though (no work tomorrow probably,wife's birthday )

Whenever more is done, you have a place to show it (and people looking out for it!).

About 5 or so hours after you were posting that,I was smacking a fallen tree hanging about forhead level (wasn't there last ride I had there...but that was 4-5 months ago when I lived that way before the fire),doing about 22 MPH. Saw it just in time to look down (no time to duck),saving face (literally,LOL). Split my helmet (I wanted a new one anyways ),but I didn't wreck. I was riding alone,BTW. Dazed n disoriented,but knowing I wasn't right,I pedaled back the way I came (about 6 miles,way closer than going on around),and had 2 minor mishaps I wouldn't have had I not been dazed,lost a bit of shin skin (I remember that one),and have a puncture about dime sized,along with moderately severe trail rash (think,road rash but with dirt imbedded instead of gravel from pavement) and deep bruising in the left rear thigh (thankfully,have no memory of that one,hahaha!).
Drove to the ER (where thankfully,they're familiar with my spinal injuries,having been my local doctor's office in that hospital),had an xray confirmed mild concussion,as well as knocked my cervical spinal area (my problem area anyways,why I'm "disabled") out of whack. They spent the next few hours slowly manipulating the cervicals back into (my normal) alignment (which is screwed anyways where I broke the neck a decade ago). I'm doing OK today,a bit stiff and sitting is still tender,but boy howdy am I milking it for all it's worth
No worries...this by FAR ain't the first time I's been slammed when doing something I love outdoors,LOL,and I'm used to a bit of constant pain in the neck area anyways,so it's all good,so long as the wife doesn't think about what coulda been with my old injuries.
In my absense from the bench though,it's been converted to a junk table ,I'm going to have to clean it off. I did get another shipment in from eBay today though (last one for a while),including a sealed NIB MPC '79 Pace Car kit
OK,sorry,rambling a bit. I almost never take my (prescribed) pain meds,but been "on schedule" with them since Sunday when I got home,makes me blabberfinger a bit

I am going through a 1996 4.6L DOHC motor myself, twin-turboing it, 5.0L stroking it, and sticking it down into my 1991GT. This is a long-term project, but all the big pieces are in my garage!
Welcome to the Forum and the SN95 build thread!

Or even one of these ('01 Bullitt in black,one of two optional colors that year)?
I'm going to begin looking for a clean '01 Bullitt,'03-'04 MACH (in the Grabber Blue or Orange-renamed-colors),or an '08 Bullitt in the Spring of '13...I doubt I'll trade my '94 in,just keep it for daily driving.
Anyways,wht would be involved in replicating something like these from that kit?

As to the Mach 1, well.............I am still working on a parts list/fit for that!
