Welcome to Makin' Progress

The Makin' Progress forum is a great place to post threads related to the progress you are making on your Ford project. Please use this forum to post updates on your personal project cars. The only rule is that you MUST have pictures and shown some progression.

The staff will initially be searching all forums for current progress threads that can be "thumbnailed" and categorized here in "Makin' Progress". If we move them, we'll PM you and leave a re-direct where the post was originally made. If you want your current progress thread moved here, please PM any of the admins or mods.

We hope you enjoy seeing your fellow FM members' progress as much as we do!

Thanks,
FordMuscle Staff

Thumbs up Re: Welcome to Makin' Progress

Sounds like a good idea to me. May have to work on getting some of my other projects up here.

Re: Welcome to Makin' Progress

I have one going right now, would I be able to play along without a subscription? I have done several things to it and would have great knowledge to share on common fixes IE, door pinch welds, lowering, primer and filler basics, and the most dreaded rust repairs.

Re: Welcome to Makin' Progress

I'll always be in this forum, probably for lack of progress! Good idea with it though, lots of people in the same boat.

Re: Welcome to Makin' Progress

I have a Mustang that I'm battling with, so I'll post pics on some of the things that are yet to be done, maybe it'll help someone else down the road. I don't get in a hurry sometimes, but sometimes I knock things real fast. Depends on the mood of the car. Thanks for having me, and I'll help in any way I can.

This is my Coupe.

Re: Welcome to Makin' Progress

Hi,
been here for a few weeks now and only now saw this part of this forum LOL! Good stuff and will contribute to the madness. I've got 1x 1971 2x1972 and 1x1973 (was mine, but gave to my brother) He's not into wrenching, so I suspect when he gets tired of seeing it sit and rott away, I'll get it back LOL! Then my collection of all three years will be complete, but for now, I'm wrenching on my first love, my 1971 Love this car and will try to do it right. Made lots of progress, but photos are scattered all over the place. Will try to get organized and keep it here. Thanks and look for my page soon.

Re: Welcome to Makin' Progress

Hello, New to the forum and I look forward to sharing my project as well as asking a few questions myself. I am currently working on my wife's 70 Mustang Mach1. This was a complete tear down and the only thing I didn't do myself was body/paint and windshield/back window install. The car is 85 0/0 done. Have to do the seats and waiting on bodyman to get me the front sheetmetal fenders/hood/valnce/rock guard. Then it's on the road but we know there never finished.

How do I get a pic to show up next to my thread? All I've got now is a red X.

Re: Welcome to Makin' Progress

Hi all i am a newbie here from New Zealand. I have a 64 Mercury Comet Caliente with a hot 302 c4 and 9 inch rear. Car is really sunburnt and pretty original which is how i plan to keep it. Solids on the rear and 5 spokes on the front with a glass hood to give it a look. Hope to contribute so let the madness begin!!!!!!

Re: Welcome to Makin' Progress

Been dialing in the primary and secondary idle emulsion on my carbs by changing out the idle air bleeds. Looks to be about right. Waiting to move on to some main jet changes then power valve curcuit feed restriction changes on the primarys. Hopefully UPS shows up in the next couple days with the jets needed.
Got one wheel pollished with my new pollish and about 2/3s of another done. Takes the shine a step above semichrome pollis and much easire to use.
Checked city fuel economy after air bleed changes looks to be up from 9 MPG to 14.5 keeping acceleration as much as possible above 10 inches of vacuum.
