The dream!

So heavy though!

We picked one up at work when Air NZ decided it wasn't something they wanted anymore.

It was very hard to move.

 

Sorry to spam up your thread.

If you're lucky the clamps will break and you'll find the top plate deflects.

I've been very interested in how you plan to do your filter setup. Looks great so far and I'm keen to see how it turns out!

Love your work! I am honestly stunned with the quality of this car. I've always wanted an Aussie Cortina but with a carbed Intech 4.0l shoehorned into it.

Your workmanship on the infilling around the tank is great! It's looking very factory.

Damn I need to get or make myself a bead roller.

The hole in the bonnet looks well done, neat setup but I can't help but think it would look a whole lot cooler if it had a louvred section instead like oldschool race bonnets?  I mean, you've already cut the hole so it is what it is but maybe worth a look?

i did think about that and looked at a lot of different pics.

but i have had a picture in my head for a long time now of the look i want....and its getting there.

i fully understand it wont be everyone's cut of tea but it will be the mk3 iv always wanted...

Lookin great so far mate. Don't know if I might have missed it in a previous post but I'm wondering about baffling in your tank. Does the tank come with some already or do you reckon the pump hanger will be enough to prevent any starvation issues? Just starting to think about ways to do my tank.

to be honest mate no the tank is a factory reproduction of a 65-69 mustang so no baffling at all...

its a bit different to most cars ive build in that i normal build something a want to race/track day /hill climb  ..and i would use surge tanks and baffled tanks but this car wont do any of that.

even ford Australia described the 6 cylinder cortina as a lead tipped arrow that was fast in a straight line and wouldn't go around a corner.....so  with that i believe the factory ba turbo intank pump with small surge capacity will do the job for me...and i wanted ease of parts

you might want to go baffled and intank ....at least the wagon has a underbody tank like the van? and not the side tank like sedans......i think
