Ready to be reunited with the Mach as soon as we finish rebuilding the leaf springs. That carrier nut kit from NPD really adds detail, I think that was $12 well spent.

Looks awesome Steve! Still can't wait to see the smile on your face once you get to drive the Mach 1 again.

Wow Steve! You should do museum restorations. When you're done, I have a Torino needing attention. When do you want it? Charlie

It wouldn't be the first time I've lost my rear end on a car.

Steve,
What color paint is that on the u-joint brackets and drums?
It looks like the Eastwood's cast blast, but not sure. Any insight is appreciated.

It's NPD's cast blast.

THANKS Steve!!!!

Do you know if it is the same basic tint as Eastwood's, because I have
a couple of cans of that on the shelf?

I don't have any Eastwood to compare. I did notice it's a bit lighter than Duplicolor's cast blast.

The drums just look silver because of the camera flash, they are cast blast and look like new cast iron normally does.

If I wasn't trying to do a day two resto and were using Cragars {ever notice everybody misspells that?} I'd probably paint them gloss black.

Depending on what the body color is, sometimes they look good painted body color.

Back in the day, I recall seeing a slick black car with bright orange brake drums peeking thru the Cragars & it looked HOT!

Realize that whatever color you decide on, it should be heat-resistant paint, as they do get hot and will discolor if the paint isn't made to take the heat...

Good Luck!

If I had a numbers matching, concours show car then I would pay the big bucks for an NOS or mint original hood. For cars like mine that will never be one of the above, then the repro is a great alternative. I did keep my orginal hood, just in case of an accident or whatever.
