Thanks Man! I appreciate you following along.

Well, the wife & I ran away to Chattanooga this weekend to go to the Coker Tire cruise-in. We got to hangout with board members Cc69Rat & his Dad NoNeck and family. It was a great time & got to see & HEAR Chads 69 turned 68 restomod beast. This truck is absolutely badA$$!!!

I did get back home this afternoon & worked on getting the EFI tank final installed & getting the initial lines run to the frame. Hopefully the fuel filter will show up tomorrow so I can get the rest of the fuel lines run. I did also get the AOD fluid cooler lines run.

Re: 1963 1/2 Ford Falcon aka Martha

I finally got a chance to tinker on the Falcon some today. I got the new EFI (lower) intake installed, mounted the AAW fuse panel and pulled the 2 engine bay looms through the firewall, and got the Ron Francis EFI harness pulled through the firewall too.

Re: 1963 1/2 Ford Falcon aka Martha

So, I got some more wiring done & I remember why I don’t like living in the humidity belt. I’ve decided to add a/c in the shop.

Re: 1963 1/2 Ford Falcon aka Martha

Ive been pretty lax lately when it comes to working on Martha, as Ive been pretty hard and heavy on Walter. I did test fit some new wheel that worked out great. 17x7 Magnum 500 replicas with 0* offset and 245/40r17 BFGs & they fit like a glove. So, Im either going to go with them or the Halibrand replicas.

Re: 1963 1/2 Ford Falcon aka Martha

The Magnums would be my choice, they look right on that car. Love that Falcon, BTW.

Re: 1963 1/2 Ford Falcon aka Martha

Thanks guys!!! That was one wheel that I borrowed off my buddies 67 Mustang. I put it on both rears (since they are the smaller wheel well) and the d/s front. It fit like a glove! I like them too, but I hate to hear “copycat” from him

Re: 1963 1/2 Ford Falcon aka Martha

I thought about this one too, but I’m afraid the grey part would disappear with the way the machined part seems to StAnD OuT.

Re: 1963 1/2 Ford Falcon aka Martha

The Magnums definitely get my vote! What brand are the wheels posted above in post #36 ?
