    This is specifically for a 69 and 70 (because they are brother cars) but the concepts apply to all. Frankly the only reason I did the 70 is because it was the first year to have fuse links, and I wanted to see how they did it. I've been working with PA Performance on a 3G alternator and found their instructions woefully lacking. FYI a 1G is generation one, etc., and the 3G is prized for its high amp output at low rpm. The 69 is on page 1, the 70 on page 2 and all the notes (which you really need) are on page 3 of the attached PDFs. 3G alternator wiring pg1.pdf 3G alternator wiring pg2.pdf 3G alternator wiring pg3.pdf

    50th birthday thread

    My baby turned 50 on 2nd June. And I missed it. I don't think she's talking to me now. Maybe flowers will help.

    Hey all, wanted to let you know that my documentary released last week on Amazon Prime Video! As some of you know, this has been an 8 year journey for me, with lots of highs and lows. I'm super psyched to finally have it out in the world. There's a bunch of 69 Mustang content in it (although the film is about more than just cars). It's been getting a really great response so far, and I hope you enjoy if you decide to give it a watch. Please rate/review it on Amazon as well if you enjoy it, the more ratings I get, the better chance I have of landing as a recommended video on the front page of Prime Video! Thanks for all the support over the years, and check out the official poster below! -Jason

    Nice that the sale went smoothly Jim. And you can rest assured knowing Johnny's car helped buy the property.

    The Henry Ford Museum

    Been in the Detroit area for a few days and thought I'd check out the place. While it's not an automotive museum, it does have a lot of cool auto stuff. 1966 & 2016 Lemans winners: I forgot about this tid bit until I saw it, these Lemans cars required a spare tire per the rules of the day. Check out the spare tire: 1965 Indy winner Jim Clark: AJ Foyt car: Mustang I concept car:

    Really impressive work. Especially the right hand conversion and the modifications for the 17's drive train.

    I would stay with body colour, the 2 pack clear is a lot more resistant to oil and brake fluid spills.

    I am not sure what you are after, however, if you want Mach 1 wood grain dash and glove box pieces, I have a few. I also have a new wood grain radio bezel and the stainless door trim for the deluxe interiors and many other parts. I am also a scott drake dealer and might be able to save you some money on some parts if you want.

    Paul's 69 Mach1

    I would recommend painting the engine bay and the trunk area on the rotisserie, it's a pain to get into the tight spots, but a lot easier on a rotisserie.

    You can lose weight... You can also slide the seat all the way back before exiting (if not already) and it will be there when you enter the car. You can also extend the rails for further movement backwards.

    Hey guys! Been a long time... For those that don't remember me, I bought/built a 69 Mustang Coupe back in 08, and I was active on the forum here till about 2014. I had started a documentary project/blog that my Mustang was featured in, and switched over about a third of the way through to a 300zx Twin Turbo to build for road racing (then sold my Stang in 2014 to continue funding the film) - Original Documentary/Z Build Thread The years went by, and I got less and less active on car forums in general... but I was recently closing down an old email address, and came across a PM notification from member RPM on here he sent me 3 years ago! Thought I'd log in and say hello to you all, and let you know that I never gave up on the documentary, and after all these years it's finally finished and I'm planning to independently release it this summer! Was a lot of ups and downs both making the film, and subsequently trying to release it (you can read more here if interested), but I couldn't be more proud of the way it came out. Check the trailer below (feel free to subscribe/visit the website/social media/etc.), and drop a comment here to say hi if you remember me, lol. Hope you're all well! -Jay Despite The Loss Official Trailer

    Pic needed

    The picture of the middle one is scary; looks like only 2 tack welds attaching the support. Also, I would think that the tab of the support should fit in to the slot on roof side support.

    There goes my baby

    I know it leaves you a bit empty, hurts a little too, I'm sure. Lots of memories and it was associated with someone very close to you. That's part of the reason that I could never sell my Mach. Bittersweet, Ridge.

    Disc brakes question

    I run the stock power disc brakes on my 428 car. Perfectly happy with the performance. Street or straight line track never a problem. Only locked the brakes up once and it was the rears. The skid/slide was slow easy and predictable. Keeping the cars systems stock/original seems to be the way to go ? Parts, repairs and instructions are much easier to obtain and work with. Brian

    69 Front Tire Clearance

    FWIW The rears on my 69 car are 2.5" clear (fender edge to tire) at the front and 3" clear at the rear. So not centered on the stock configuration. Brian

    It is Time

    Years. They move so fast. This girl has been in my life 41 years now. So hard to believe. I just drive her. Really need to do suspension work, but I'd just rather drive. This year has been tough. It rains every weekend, so she hasn't seen many road miles. Of the 41 years owned, the open diff has grabbed both tires less times than I can count on one hand. Another finger happened this weekend! Once I am too old to giggle at stuff like this, it's time to take a dirt nap! So special when she goes sideways!

    Fitech vs Sniper vs ?

    Hello Have just installed the new Edelbrock pro flo 4 on my 351w and coulkd not be happier : First cranking = immediate start The auto tune/learn function works very well and cold start and dieseling issues are gone. The engine is much smoother and even quieter. I also installed the Aeromotive Stealth 2 fuel tank which is very well priced. Tuning is done via an Android Tab connected by bluetooth. for 1850 USD you get a real port injection mounted on a Victor intake - the dizzy is also a nice piece. The only issue is the total height of the install, I needed to cut the hood to clear the air cleaner, I will put a hood scoop like a cougar eliminator or cervini B9 to close this hole.

    We finished removing and welding a new roof skin to replace the one with 50 drilled holes and bondo stalagtites hanging from the ceiling. Mike was excited initially as he had a temporary sunroof!

    Remote Mirror for 69 Mustang

    +1 on the Torino mirrors if you want remote passenger control. There's a few threads about those out there. That won't solve the vibration problem, though - I get it too at certain times, when my speed and RPMs align just right - the mirrors are a blur. Not sure what can be done for that. You could look at modern mirrors but I think the unique profile of our doors can be a problem when it comes to transplanting just any mirror. Have you thought about just calling the guy in the Chevy on your cell phone and asking him what's back there?
