I wasn't satisfied with all the numbers from the scanner in live feed on the efi. I replaced all the sensors and now the numbers look better. I don't know that I have everything 100% but I'm optimistic. The velcro I ordered arrived and the headliner is stuck down in the loose areas. I installed weather stripping under the bed floor panels. I'm expecting no rattles when I finish. I painted the 2 panels from the bed floor and the shift lever this afternoon. The 2 divider strips for the floor are left. I didn't think I had enough time to prep them before it got too cool to paint. The weather forecast says that I shouldn't have to worry about that after tomorrow. Smile

In the spirit of spending too much time to do something, I used a leftover 7075 t6 motorplate from the top fuel car to make a mounting ring for a shifter boot. This is 1/4" alum that I machined in the lathe to the desired outer and inner dimensions. I put it in the mill and used a radius cutter to profile the inner and outer edges. I bored and countersunk the mounting holes. I dug out the sewing machine that hasn't been used for months and tried to remember how to use it. Smile I used some left over black vinyl for the boot. I went out to make a video of driving it. It was too shaky so I went out to do better. The fabulous mustang donor bit me again. I now need an alternator. Smile

The shift boot & ring look neat ... Cool

Do you have a list of the remaining "Mustang Parts" just in case ???

Yesterday I cleaned out a box of "left-overs" from the last donor vehicle that we stripped ..
It was a '76 Mustang II we stripped in '87 to get a front end for the Kidd's Dodge .....

I remember having him strip the car to "learn" how cars went together.. Idea

I DO need to visit the shop attic more often ... Embarassed Embarassed It's amazing what's up there .. Rolling Eyes

Bob, off of the top of the poor memory, I have the fuel tank and pump, steering column, power steering pump, cooling fan assembly, starter, hydroboost assembly, throttle pedal and cable, throttle body assembly, and the cruise control module which isn't connected yet. All the other parts have been replaced or modified. I suppose I should be prepared. Smile

The new alternator is on and I have 14.5 volts steady. The check engine light came on after driving around for about 15 minutes. I'm down to the last item to check. Fuel pressure. Holy cow! I have 70 and it should be 40. New regulator is about to be ordered. That will surely be the last time. Smile As I was driving around yesterday, it was about 95 degrees. I had the ac on low and almost got cold. I wasn't doing 70 at 105 degrees but I have high hopes for that part.

The first pic is of a flare union in the return line. I found an area where a bend had collapsed for some reason around the center crossmember. I removed that and spliced in some replacement tubing. That lowered the fuel pressure to 48 lbs. I got to measuring the unions and found that they were smaller than the id of the line which is 3/16". I bored each union on the lathe to 3/16". Then the gasket on the schrader end of my fuel gauge came apart so I don't know if I'm where I need to be yet. The bed strips are painted and in. Foot prints are free. Smile

This morning the brain engaged and I decided that the o-ring kit I have was the answer to the fuel pressure gauge. When I got home, I found an o-ring that was close to the size of the Schrader valve and tried it. Success! The fuel pressure problem has been fixed. I still have something going on but I haven't come to a conclusion as to what is causing it yet. I'll try not to be boring until I have the answer at which time I will post it. Note that I'm positive that I will find it. Smile

I just got done running the feed and return lines on my Hemi. I am also wondering about the unions I had to use. The ones I bought connect plastic to steel lines. The plastic side has a support that fits in the I.D. of the line so you can clamp the ferrule with the nut. This greatly reduces the I.D. I also found the original Hemi fuel rail line is 3/8 push to connect on the rail and 5/16 where it connects to maybe a filter/regulator on the other end? Shocked
I will have to see if I have enough volume of fuel.

What I thought was a piece of hose in the fuel return line near the tank with factory connectors turned out to be a piece of plastic hose with rubber sleeve. It was kinked at both ends. I now have the correct fuel pressure and believe I have solved all the efi troubles. A Toast A Toast A Toast

If you have to splice the plastic fuel lines into anything, you can use DOT NTA compression air fittings for plastic lines. The liner sleeve is very thin, made of stainless, and works well. They don't make 5/16" DOT fittings, but my hardware store carries a brass sleeve that will fit in 5/16" plastic tubing, and will work.

Thanks for the tip, Frank. That line was 8mm. I had 15" of that expensive efi hose left over from the 32 that I found last weekend when I was cleaning up. That turned out to be an easy repair. It sure wasn't easy to find. Smile I went for a ride and most things are gone. There is something going on with the constant control relay module when the fan comes on. That's about the last thing that hasn't been replaced from the Mustang. I'm going to do some diagnostic work before buying one. I want to be sure I didn't do something wrong. Smile

This is a short video that I took with the window down and me operating the camera. The last of it is no hands on the wheel.

Because I still haven't made the decision as to what color to paint this, I painted the running boards the Bullitt green so I can look at it for awhile to form an opinion. The rear fenders are off now for more dent removal. They're so rough that I don't have a good plan as to where to start. I guess I'll start in one corner and more around in one direction with the hammer and dolly until I think it's as good as I can get it. Then I'll coat the whole fender with plastic and keep going.

Thanks for the video and for all the great updates. The motor sounds healthy, it put a smile on my face.

This morning I got started early. I'm sure someone appreciated the noise. Smile I spent 5 hours doing hammer and dolly work. I'm not good enough to make it good but now the plastic will be thin. I rolled the openings for the tail lights and fuel filler hole. I blasted them one more time and hit it with the da. I'm ready to weld in the panels where the running boards bolt on and then it's time for bondo.

Bob, I use the driveway and clean up the mess afterward. It's a necessary evil to doing your own work when nobody within 200 miles offers the service.

Two more repair panels in. I'm tired of rusty metal. Sad

I spent all day working on the rear fenders. I'm on the second coat of plastic. This isn't fun.
