All Fords at this house, and we have a lot.
I got a lot done today on the Shelby. I used automotive lacquer paint in a rattle can. In an hour I was waxing the paint and starting to assemble it. My old school 6 speed is awesome. I got the Dana 3 speed adjusted it wouldn't go into 3rd. The Bendix kickback is working great. I did get to go for my first ride tonight.

As bad as my day went with the Shelby yesterday, I came up with a name Jinx.
I built a new front rim, yesterday and went to a smaller front tire. The Carlisle Lightning Dart rear tire was a bust also. So I replaced the Lightning Dart with a new Bontrager 2.35 rear tire. The handle bars had little chrome left and a lot of pitting so I painted the stem and handlebars metallic gray.
