Aren't the strut rod bearings now illegal in Stock/Super Stock, or did they back off that rule this spring?

It seems like I never have any time to work on my Fairlane but I decided to spend a little time this weekend on it instead of customer cars. I started taking this apart over 6 years ago and now its not that easy finding all the parts. I finally found the brackets for the headlights and the hood latch. After I sandblasted them I sprayed a couple of coats of SPI black epoxy.

I just moved this out of storage and will start working on it so that we can race it sometime in 2014. Still not sure what engine or Super Stock class yet.

My plan is to race in one of the SS/GT classes so I ordered a 427 fiberglass hood as a Christmas present for myself and it came in today.

I have not test fit it yet but I compared it to the original hood and it's 1/4" wider on the left side and longer. I sanded the edges and it's still a little larger and will test fit soon. Very good quality and price.

your high and low spots dont look as bad as i had heard of crites hood, quarter inch on 3 sides sounds better than out of square issues.

Today I block sanded again and sprayed two coats of black epoxy primer. I will paint the hood red before I'm finished but it will be awhile.

Steve Baur the editor of Modified Mustangs & Fords picked up the Fairlane to take it to their shop. While there they will be writing tech stories for future issues as they are installing the Painless wiring harness, Autometer tach and gauges along with a Flaming River steering box, column and steering wheel.
