    The tank was almost empty but the first thing I did was fill it. It still showed empty after 19 gallons were added. Tomorrow, I will take the wire off the sending unit and ground it to see if the gauge moves. I think that should isolate the problem.

    Looks great bet the feeling getting it back felt the same way.

    I am glad you were able to save the car! It is looking good.

    Now that it has a 10K paint job, I am almost afraid to drive it.

    Monday it gets new tires and an alignment.

    Nice. I bet you are a very happy man.

    Why did you elect to modify the cowl? Personally, I like the aesthetic of the original but I know many talk of doing what you had done.

    I just like the look for this stang (and I hated waxing around it). I have removed the badges and this was just the next step. Someday the drip rails will be history.

    I am a very happy man and my wife is real happy with the work also.

    Looks great and a perfect mod to add to all the subtle mods you have already done.

    When I got in the stang this morning. I saw I had a stupid mouse/rat in the car last night. Chewed a hole in the kick panel. I do not need thing giving more things to fix! At least I did not find rat turds in the car.

    Be grateful that's where he did the damage. I had a mouse decide to chew through my new headliner even though there was wide open access to get behind it only a couple inches away. I'd take replacing a kick panel any day over what i went through! Still sucks though. I'd also do my best to make sure he is not still in there.

    Since I cannot cut any more trees down for a while, I went after my tilt column project. After rebuilding the tilt column, it still did not turn good. So I pulled my other 2 columns of my parts shelf and torn them down to compare parts. Turns out the upper shaft was buggered (do not know h9ow I missed that). Replaced the shaft and almost got it together before I called it a night. Hopefully I can finish tonight. Tilt019.jpg Tilt020.jpg Tilt021.jpg Tilt022.jpg Tilt023.jpg
