Decided to get into photography as a past time hobby, and its so fun! Bought a Canon EOS Rebel T5 secondhand on FB  for like $200 with spare lenses and carrying bag too so its a pretty complete setup, super fun stuff.

That sir, is a moneypit rabbithole. If you thought cars as a hobby were expensive, just wait until the shutter bug bites you a few times...  :heh: :heh:

The last setup I bought was a mirrorless Panasonic Lumix G7 with three lenses- a 14-42mm, 55-200mm, and fixed 20mm f/1.7 years and years ago. I haven't bought any other setups simply because the Lumix G7 does everything I need. :biggrin:

First gens for sure do. The shape of the 3rd gen and the Mustang from that era are quite different. They don't look the same at all to me, the angles are all different.

Personally i think the coupe GT models look a bit like the buick regals of the same era, if you squint and have a couple of shots as well  :heh:

Years ago I tried passing off my Celica as a Mustang LX at a company-sanctioned employee car show. And I worked at Ford during this time.  :heh:

so on my 4 runner the lines going into the fuel pickup assembly on the tank are really bad. It seems you can't just buy a new one. Anyone have experience here? Do I just cut the old lines drill them out of the plate and solder new ones? Or drill and use bulkhead style fittings? What about the fuel pump terminals? I have a new pump I bought a long time ago I would like to put in at the same time do those terminals get brittle and crack when you remove them? I would like to get everything in order so I can get it done in a weekend. Any advice is appreciated.
