    More Factory AC Wiring Questions :)

    On my 69 with factory air, the green wire to compressor is molded as part of the bundle where NSS and wiper motor wires come out, about 2 inches inboard of the gas pedal cable.

    After pretty much loosing my old 35 ford i have been thinking about it a lot lately ,i think i need to build another one ! I used to collect them ,i had several at one time but i am down to just 4 now haha. I even made my own patch panels like the rear bottom of the cab ,you couldnt buy this patch several years ago and it a pretty normal rust out area . Now there is quite a few patch panels for them ,you can even buy new running boards ,but i have a good set . My cab i will be using isnt bad but no where as straight as my old 35 was . I have a pretty decent pair of doors with just a small ding in each door that will be fixable without the use of bondo . I need the rockers ,they make them now ,and a couple of lower corner patches that i have from an old crushed cab . I have piles of head lights ,interior trim ,window regulators ,door latch assemblies you mame it i have it here some where. . I happen to have a pretty good 35 frame in my shop with a 37 pick up setting on it but my favorite is the 35 . I have a few hood panels hanging on the wall with a super nice 35 grill ,its the one on the left . I pulled the cab and a few parts out just to see what i need ,looks like i have to find a passenger side front fender but shouldnt be to hard to find . I bought a couple of 35 -37 rear fenders a few years back that need a bit of work but they are almost impossible to find because these things were used as a truck and the rear fenders were the first thing destroyed .

    I got the old fire wall out ,that thing was really in there ,it looks like i need to pick up a sheet of 19 gauge sheet metal to build the new one . I am going to sand blast before i put in the new fire wall so i can get at everything .

    I decided to give my harbor freight sander a try on the front of the cab ,it took it down to clean metal fairly quick with out a lot of effort. Hit a spot on the door and found it still has the old army green under the brown primer . These cabs are 19 gauge ,well thicker than a mustangs 20 -21 gauge ,its kind of like working on a 55 gallon drum . Smooth dents can be bumped out and usually need no bondo . I will sand the flat panels but i will have to sand blast everything else . The cowl vent will be filled in and the original firewall will come out so i can make a new one deeper set for a small block Ford to fit .

    20 years ago i was the only one that made a patch panel for the back of the cab ,a friend machined the dies for my bead roller ,it cost me a whole $80 ,i wonder what it would cost to make these dies today?

    By the way, you need to remove all of the rust where you are going to solder. If a spec of rust is left, solder won’t stick.

    35 ,36 ,and 37 hood side panels . The fenders are pretty much the same as are the running boards except the 37 front fender is completely cut out for the bumper brackets to pass through ,35 36 has a window in the front of the fender for the bumper brackets to pass through . There is differences between the 35 36 and 37 inside as well ,but 35 36 is almost the same

    The cab i am using is actually a 36 although the 35 parts will fit ,easiest way to tell a 35 is the notch at the bottom of the wind shield posts ,the 36 is rounded ,although i have had two original 35s with the rounded post to the cowl . The 35 doors have a removable window frame ,the 36 and 37 do not . The grill for the 35 is shorter than the 36 and i think mush better looking ,the 37 is totally different and rounded but not as ugly as a 39-39. The hood has a v in the louvers where the ford emblem goes ,the 36 side panel has long louvers all the way with the emblem in the front of the louvers . 37 hood sides are long but way different from the 36 and has a smaller V8 emblem mounted right on the center of the louvers . 37 hood will not fit a 35 36 ,it longer and shaped a bit different

    Well ,what do you know ! Its kind of hard to take a door from one cab and have it fit another cab ,you guys complaining about fitting mustang parts just dont know ! These things were fit to each cab as they were built ,the driver door just has to come up a bit and the passenger has to go back a bit at the bottom ,they are usually way off but these look great !
