John, I like to keep my posts\pictures here to a minimum, some feel the car was not being restored to a specific minimum standard worthy of this board. ............

Don't think that is an issue as long as you point out to viewers things that are not factory since many come here to collect and share original details and many viewers will assume that what you post fits those standards.  Of course you free not to post also - your choice.  I made choices with my 429 CJ also but am quick to point them out anytime someone uses the work "restored" in describing my car at a show or in pictures.

John, I like to keep my posts\pictures here to a minimum, some feel the car was not being restored to a specific minimum standard worthy of this board. However, I tried to follow factory applications and processes where possible and I am more than happy with the end results to date. I have little desire to do judged shows per se, my experience with judges comments in the past has been all over the board. I built this car as a testament to my love of the big block '71's and being a vert was just a bonus... As a very rare car, I still like to put it out there once in a while for those that are truly interested in something different. Thanks for your interest. Cheers.

To bad you feel it like that. I think your car is very worthy of this board. Most Mustang lovers would be proud to park next to your car. I know I would.

Thanks

John
