Nice work! I need to build a garage! GM isn't that bad, the majority of my other vehicles are GM.

Beautiful garage!

Now Jeff, don't you have a Cadillac console in your FORD GTS?? That would be out of a GM vehicle...

I don't care if he likes GM just not kewl to put a bowtie on an ALL Ford forum as your Avatar
when supposedly he is a Torino lover,I'm having my doubts and might see that Cleveland stuffed in a Camaro soon
heck I post my car on the MOPAR Forum but I don't have a Blue Oval as my Avatar
I like all brands as long as it was a kewl car but you won't see me with a bowtie or Pentastar for my Avatar
just not in good taste IMO
too me it's kinda  a slap in the face to the FoMoCo breed

I just put the avatar cause it looks cool, never done that much thinking about it
On a side note, I would never swap a ford engine into another brand car, I am not that insane,
Still a Torino lover, but I also love many other car that are non Ford

sorry to highjack

It would indeed. If it wasn't for that pesky son of mine wanting to throw his life away by going to college this year we'd be talkinBig smile! Seriously, I would like to have a twin 72 to put beside the 73. Of course my wife would kill me but dang that would be awesome.

Cleaning up the engine bay and looking for a little direction from you paint and body guys. After I strip the engine bay and firewall do I need to prime before paint? What paint would you use? Flat,semi or gloss?. Do I need to clear coat? BTW im a spray can guy. I don't want to bother my buddy at the body shop,he did enough.
