    Stripped sheet metal holes

    Once again...the screws I mentioned look like the originals. They may also be the same screws that npd is selling but I for one do not know if they are.

    Power steering

    Florida you are asking if you can add a pressure valve to pump to limit pressure pump makes, right? I believe there is already a valve in the pump to limit pressure when engine rpm goes up. As ridge said, wondering is because of the ball joint of the PS control valve. If there is too much play in that, wandering increases, limiting the pressure from pump won't help. Limiting pressure will only decrease the assist/power level. The ps control valve on my 70 grande has no play and it wandered some. I increased the caster to 6 degrees and it reduced the wandering considerably.

    Happy 50th

    Well, mine rolled off the assembly line (Dearborn) on 15 July 1969 and I was pretty sure it was among the last (222550). I do not believe they were still making these in nov 69. They had already started assembling the 70 my. Vicfred said his car was turning 50 two days ago, that 11/27/69 must have been a typo...

    Sub-frame connectors

    I kind of like to make my own but if I were going to buy some they'd be the Spintechs. They are the only ones that truly integrate into the unibody of the car and look like the factory might have done them to the uninformed eye. Never been a fan of the "piece of pipe stuck under the car" look. https://spintechmufflers.com/mustang-1965-1970-sub-frame-connectors/

    Stripped sheet metal holes

    They have screws for this exact problem. The head is the correct size the threaded portion is larger https://www.npdlink.com/product/mounting-kit-scuff-plate-repair-screws-for-oversized/100127?backurl=search%2Fproducts%3Fsearch_terms%3Ddoor%2Bscuff%2Bplate%26top_parent%3D1%26year%3D1970&year=1970

    All you need to do is buy the next size larger screw. WURTH sells them. I have done this over 100 times. Bear in mind that they sell them with two different size head choices.

    Ever want to punch one of these guys ?

    I wonder what this guy thinks about the various "glues" that manufacturers are now using to join sheet metal together. Fusor comes to mind as one of these "glues" that is quite popular these days.

    I'd trust one of your cars with my life any day Ridge. Its the internet, its full of a$$holes, and you can't argue with idiots or people with agendas.

    . Well I am still on my Stang but things have changed a little. First off all the rust repair is done. Decided to go with the MustangSteve.com for brake conversion brackets. While pulling the C4 out and thinking about a little stronger trans than the T5 .... like a T56. I found a 2007 Shelby 4.6 3v 5 speed at a great deal. So now to show horn in the motor and tranny

    Happy 50th

    They usually start building "next year's models" around July or August. For example, I heard a radio ad today enticing me to go buy a 2019 RAM pickup.

    Happy 50th

    HUH?? 1969+50=2019 What am I missing? Today's date is November 17, 2018. Mine was born on March 19, 1969 and will be 50 this coming March. That is correct isn't it guys? Vic, if your build date is November 17, 1969 then your car turns 49 today. Shep didn't say what his build date was, but it had to be some time in 1968 for it to be 50 years old. Just sayin' ;)

    Change Rear End Gear Ratio

    Well, the engine itself will loose less torque if you install numerically higher gears because it will not be working as hard to move the vehicle, but I don't think you are asking the right question. It is much better if you simply post in detail what you have and what you are wanting to achieve etc. 3.89 gears will make 1st gear in that trans nearly useless, so under normal driving conditions you will be shifting from 1st into 2nd at around 10 mph, lol.

    Stripped sheet metal holes

    We weld them up, and drill the correct size. Going with a bigger screw looks butt ugly :(

    Stripped sheet metal holes

    I can't remember if those are small slotted holes, but if not, consider putting in a rivut nut (or equivalent) and a matching fastener.
