Brakes upgrade front & rear
#1
.    

Wife and I will be doing a journey to Penn for a week long road rally.

So I am having everything freshen up , turned drums , new premium shoes , front rotors being turned new semi metallic pads .  Possibly new S.S brake hoses.
I am also updating the head lights to LED's  4000 lumens each . That should make driving at nite pleasant.
Last year had the FMX tranny rebuilt with a shift kit. What a differance that made

I agree with JTS on the color.  That color green is super nice on your Mach 1 and the blacked out hood compliments it well.  Now I have to convince the other regulars on the site that a blacked out hood will look just as good on my Fairlane. Is that clear coat base coat paint?

Damn good looking car you have!

Well , thank you both about the color compliment. Yes it's bc/cc.

The color is called emerald green or jade green depending on the paint company.  
This color was actualy a mistake by the painter ! I ask for the original silver jade green Ford used that year. When the painter sent me pic's just before he put it all back tegeather , I was floored by the look . I loved it but didn't want him to know how happy I was with the color mistake.

So I acted very dissapointed and told him it was not the color I ask for , he looked astonished and said we'll let's look at your order .  When he saw his notes about the color he was supposed to use . he said well looks like it gets repainted .  
I said leave it alone , I love the mistake and he was very relieved and happier than I was.
That car has won a ton of awards just because of the color. It's was also featured  in a Cruz News Magazine article.

I'll compliment you on the color as well.

What color was the Mach 1 you originally were hoping to purchase back in 69?

Very nice mistake!   You probably could have leveraged a nice discount to avoid a repaint.  It is just so much work to have to repaint a car especially if you are not getting paid for it.

Well , back then I was really into the deep red . Not sure about the name but it was really dark red .
Back in the day , they didn't have much on there lots , so I would have had to order it.

ya know that crossed my mind but I could never do that for 2 reasons , one I was ecstatic about the look and the other ? He was a small one man shop and it would have hurt him bad.  If I didn't like the color I would have said so and expected a repaint.
