Progress has seemed slow, but everything is starting to come together. The shelves of parts are getting emptier every weekend. I am enjoying myself, this project is everything I ever hoped it would be. I am currently waiting on my friends host to put the engine back in. I am having fun!

Now is the perfect time to install and plumb your upgraded Dual Master Cylinder. This is on your list right?

Thanks for the reply Jeff.

I was planning to install my new master cyclinder and front brake lines today. Sorry to go against the dual cylinder safety push of the club, but I have decided to stick to the original single. I will be replacing all wheel cyclinders, drums, shoes, and spring kits before I take her out.

I got my first call back from my add to start a Falcon Club this morning. It would be great to have some friends to get together with.

I'm going back home to New Orleans this Sunday for my Dad's 80th birthday for about week so my progress will have to stop for a little while. We will pass a good time for sure, he has no clue that I'm coming.

Guy,

I donít have a problem with your choice to stay with the original set-up. As long as you are aware that the dual upgrade was an option, I have done my job.

Glad you are minimizing risk by replacing all four wheel cylinders.

Happy 80th to your pop.

Hey Jeff,

Thanks, I can't wait to see his face when he sees me!!!!!!!!! It feels kind of funny being so jazzed about something at my age. We live about 1450 miles from one another and I only see my folks once a year.

I finished the master cylinder and front brake lines this morning. I think I will be in good shape with all the brake work I am planning.

Have a great day,
Guy

I got back from seeing my Dad on his birthday. I took him by suprise. Got my new harmonic balancer painted today and did some much needed yard work. Plan on blasting the new exhaust manifold tommorow.

Watched football most of the day,
Guy

You're really doing a thorough job! That's gonna be one CLEAN restoration!

When do you hope to get it all together? Ready for a spring show?

Red,

Thanks for the encouragement, means alot.

I don't know when I will have it back together in time, but I know it is better not to place a time line on my work. I ready slow up on the install partion because I try not to scratch anything. I worry if I try and hurry I will f^&* things up!

Guy

Guy-

Looking very good.

I agree, if you don't need to rush, don't. Here, in Seattle, it's already getting very cold in our unheated garages (few of us are fortunate to have heat out there) and so our projects naturally go slower this time of the year. Heck even our blood is going slower, I'm sure.

So, what are you using for the gray color on the throttle brackets, etc.?

Hello all, hope everybody is staying warm!

I sandblast them to natural metal, clean with non-chlorinated brake cleaner, and spray them with a satin clear coat. I like the way they come out looking like new linkage, and having three coats of clear works to protect them from the eliments. My plan is to drop the engine back in this coming Tuesday, but you never know.

We're still in the seventies during the day but it is getting colder down here too.

I have been doing the same color on things here at the shop but using a clear powder coat instead of spray. I like the look as well plus it won't rust with the clear...

Thanks Guy. I like the look too. I typically use the Duplicolor Wheel Paint for most of this sort of thing. They make a few colors, it's tough as heck, and resists chemicals - since it's for wheels. I used their graphite color for my master cylinder and am waiting to see how that holds up.

I've seen Steve's clear'd parts and they look very good.
