Looking good. I am working at replacing the tail light panel this weekend or next then it goes on to a rotisserie so I can get the bottom done. I am running new brake lines and fuel lines while I have it on it's side.

Factory drums just plan s---. I am going to be putting on power disk on the front just so I don't have a problem.

With that said go back an adjust them again and when you think it is right do it again.

LOL! Right, that's what was afraid you'd say..I'm gonna replace front with power disc also just before I put it on the road. Replaced all wheel cylinders and trying to get drums reliable for now, as well as keeping cost down for now. for moving around the yard and maybe neighborhood ride thru, once I get the door back on at least

Me too! Me too, I've got so many big plans! Have to really keep myself in check when talking to my wife about it. I'll just be rambling on about this and that upgrade and all she is thinking is, how much does that cost? Do you need it ? LOL

Sounds like a messy job, at least I always end up with grease a lot of places on me rather than the bearings it was meant for. Somebody's gotta do it tho.

I'm excited for this car - it's going to be fun!

My wife and I set up allowances for ourselves (yes, we get the same amount). She tends to spend hers each month - I saved mine for years and bought a car. It keeps the separation of need budget and want budget separate. It sounds weird, but it works really well.

Maybe. If your gasket isn't in great shape, brake fluid tends to find every crack it can. Or it could be some that spilled during the bleed. I'd take a look at the gasket and see what shape it's in and go from there.

If you are talking cover gasket yes you can replace just that. Well in 1993 I was able to, I don't know why that would have changed.

http://www.cjponyparts.com/catalogse...mustang+master

If you are talking out the ports then nope time for a new MC.

Or you could try a rebuild

Yea I found gasket replacement on cj pony for 4 bucks. It starts from top of MC with leakage so has to be gasket..just frustrating. ..gonna attempt to adjust drum brakes today..any suggestions on how far to adjust out? Do you want the shoes touching drums when spin wheel?

I adjust them until I hear them touch when turning by hand. I then back them off a half turn or so. Seems to have always walked for me. Just make sure your E-brake is off when you do this.

So I tried my hand at spraying the door I'd stripped (seen in earlier post of this thread) today. This is the result ,before I figured out I'd connected the regulator backwards..SMDH..the gun would run out of air after first 2 sprays making a mess but me not knowing any better kept trying, anyway, here's the result..

The good news is that you'll probably never make that mistake again. You're braver than me spraying your own door. Keep at it!

Thanks! Dunno about brave, just decided I'd at least try it with epoxy. The worst that can happen is I have to strip the door.....again LOL I don't think it'll be so bad the next time, once I get that door finished I may start stripping sections from the roof down and priming.
