  2. Looks like you have your work cut out for you. Go rent a powerwasher and get a few cans of degreaser from auto parts store.

    While you are in there maybe upgrade that master cylinder ;)
     
  3. i would definitely change to a double bowl master cylinder for safety .
     
  4. I am defiantly going to upgrade to a dual bowl master cylinder and im going to do the granada swap.
     
  5. First of all i want to say kudos to thoes of you you have your engine bay painted. And you for the ones that dont, well good luck... I have now found that i have to replace the battery apron because some one hacked it up... But in just a short hour to hour and half i have got this accomplished...

  6. just wait until you run one of those spot welds with the sharp spatter in your finger:fuss:
     
  7. I finally got some time to work on the stang today and this is what i did in about 3 hours with a pencil blaster...

  8. you need one of those pressure pot blasters from harbor freight .they are cheap and actually work very well . the one i have is just the small one ,it will blast an engine compartment easily .
     
  9. Which M/C is a direct replacement without having to rebend lines?
     
  10. if you are changing the master cylinder in a 65-66 you will have to add a line
    i use a 67 master cylinder, and buy the new 67 brake lines . the 67 cylinder and lines is the simplest . you will need a 67 distribution block as well.
     
  11. i just bought a 74 maverick mc for my granada swap... That should work
     
  12. worked a bit more today and i got it sandblasted and put etch primer on so it wont rust... now i just need it to warm up so i can spray color...

  14. That is coming out awesome. Engine bays can be time consuming.
     
  15. Coming along nicely, sure is a ton of work. I just painted mine (body color) recently. Nice to have it over with, painting was pretty awkward too.
     
  16. Wow.... It has been a long time since i posted anything to my thread.... But i had to take time to save money and buy parts. Ive had a few weekends to work on the stang and got both fender aprons removed along with most of the radiator support..... Here are some pics of my progress...

  17. Robert if you have an export brace and Monte Carlo bar bolt them on to help align thefro t end structure. Looking good.
     
  18. I do have both! Im still in the process of grinding the old radiator support off.... Then im going to test fit all the panels before welding and install my monte carlo bar, then weld... Thanks for the tip!!
     
  19. I forgot to add the lower crossmember. When I did mine, I had to use a ratchet strap tpo pull the front of the frame rails in to get them tight. Bill
     
  20. Wow! it has been a long time since i worked on my mustang. I finally got some time, and the right tools. Here is the progress that i have made
