If you look back at #ProjectSportsRoof post you’ll see the condition engine bay. During those videos I mentioned that I was going to clean it up and hit it with a rattle can. Again this isn’t going to be a concours restoration, it’s going to look nice and it’s going to get driving and it’s going to sound awesome and yes it will be entered in to local car shows and a trip now and then down the strip!!!
Here is the engine bay work.

Here a quick little video showing the wire work in the engine bay.
I’ve got a a little more work up near the firewall before I’m done.
Still have a little more electrical work to do as well.
Coming up more on the heater box and final components going on the 351C.
I know…I know…it’s a bit of let down moving back to the heater box for #ProjectSportsRoof when the beautiful 351 Cleveland that’s going to power the 73 Mustang is sitting in the garage waiting to roar back to life, but the heater box has to get done.
As I showed you in the previous heater box post is was pretty much a mess. So after accessing the damage and apply epoxy to the broken pieces, I needed to clean it up before applying the fiberglass. Here’s a little look at that:
I need give a bit of caution here when doing the cleaning. Take a look at the part numbers on the heater box:
Those number are no longer there. The Simple Green clean removed them. I’ll mention again that this is not a concourse restoration, but nonetheless it’s always sad when you change or remove something that original that didn’t need to be. Yes it’s just the heater box and not something anyone is going to notice, but I know it’s gone as do you and all 17k members of this blog.
Coming up next on AG Car Restoration is fiberglass repair of the heater box and maybe I’ll sneak in sometime on the Cleveland.
