OK, so after the quick trial fit of the dash panel, might as well do a quick fit of the gauges that will slot in easily (ie not the bourdon tube temp gauges).....




Now to pull it all out again and attack the glovebox and glovebox lid.


Cheers!
Glen

Default A new addition

Looking good Mister Glen Almost as nice as my dash turned out You know how sometimes life throws you a curve? Well I was happy as a clam, with my (2) keeper cars (Cobra & V-8 Mazda Rx-7). All the other cars were for buying & selling, well long story longer. I get a call (last Thur.) from a gentlemen I dealt with 5 years ago about buying his rare Mustang, came to buy it and he got "Cold Feet" and backed out, well fine & forgotten, Well fast forward those 5 years, I now have to add to the collection a 1990 "CHP" (Black & White)California Highway Patrol Mustang Look them up on line. Granted it need to be restored, but at least I finally own it. A good friend has a Az. unmarked highway patrol (1989) Mustang, and will help with the restoration (3-4 year project) Wish me well Glen, I'll send pictures. Cheers Tommy.

Tom - you looking at starting up your own little Police Force, or what? A V8 RX7 as an unmarked car too? I suppose we all qualify as being just a little 'mad' owning Cobra replicas

Cheers!

Default Yes Indeed

There you go Glen, the "little Sleeper 7" is as close to stock looking as I can make it. I've had people come up at a show, and say did Ford & Mazda build this car? Here's a pic or two of the beast. The 7 will eat 911's for breakfast, and light the tires up in 3rd gear Funny you said a unmarked Police Force. Rob (The Snake Charmer, where my Cobra is being finished) has his 1987 AZ. Police Mustang and is unmarked, (And him being a retired Cop) still has light's siren, gun rack, etc. and is jealous of my Black & White, a cop thing I guess. Cheers my friend.

I’m excited! This little number came in today….



….and will put a nice (and authentic) finishing touch to the glovebox door.


Cheers,
Glen

edit: I ordered it five days ago, and it came in today via Stansted (UK) / Liege / Singapore / Sydney / Adelaide.
If I send a letter from Adelaide to Canberra (our nation's capital) ....it can take ten days!!!

'Bumping' my thread....

No worthwhile pictures, but working slowly (it was just above freezing point here this morning) on the glovebox and lid. Life (other distractions!) goes on as well

The glovebox itself is quite bespoke because of a horizontal structural tube that cuts through the centre, so the shape has had to be tweeked (mucho) to eke out some usable space.

The lid is progressing; a lot of care required to give an even 5mm to 6mm gap all around so the the lid's leather beading will fit correctly over the gap.


Cheers!
Glen
