Thanks Pugsy! Never been a Ford guy myself, but I've always liked the looks of the 1st gen Falcons, and especially the Futura with it's unique rear roof lines.

I dont think to many people will be yelling at yours...what a difference.
Thanks DB!
My favorite aunt had 4-5 Falcons ever since they came out in '60, and right up to '67 when she passed away. Always think of a white haired old lady when I see a stock Falcon. Might have to have her name lettered on the glove box for good luck! She was Ernestine, but always went by "Ernie".

On my washer, I got the tub and seal out tonight and the wife will be going to see about getting a seal tomorrow while I am at work.

On the truck I got out there and cleaned up some more rust, didn't have much time but I got a lot done, just trying to get this door ready to weld back together.

window shopped as I've been sick.
toss'n around the idea of using my holley blue fuel pump or by a intank pump and adapt the tank sender to work with it.
seems easy enough to put one in the tank instead of the buzzer on the outside..

Wife was headed to the airport to visit our daughter, so not much got done yesterday. But I did get my harnesses installed in the car. Surprised to find the holes in the floor with the rubber plugs still in from the factory! Guess this car didn't get the optional lap belts back when new.

It was good to be able to spend some time in the basement today. I assembled the pieces to the front corner of the floorboard and body mount and started welding the assembly in. I have a lot of welding and grinding to do yet.

I posted on my rust repair thread the process I used to keep most all of the welds from showing.

I saw it over there on the body forum, beautiful work John! Making stuff like that is true fabrication, you are making something that replaces something that once existed, making it look like it did. You could have taken the easy way and just stuck a piece of tubing or something there, but what you are doing is real craftsmanship.

I always love seeing all the tools laying around a project like that. It's like a magic trick where something explodes with confetti flying around and WHAM, there is a chicken where nothing once stood. LOL, I just get a kick out of it.

I am bad to let things lie until I can't turn around, THEN I pick up and clean up. The shop will stay clean as long as I clean up every day when I quit. The first time I turn off the lights on a dirty shop and come back to the dirty shop, it is all down hill from there......

I did a bunch of cleaning to get my cab in the garage and I covered the work bench with stuff. I jumped on the work to the cab and don't want to do anything but.....so the bench is still covered.
