    Ridgerunner Sail Panels

    First set is for TexasEd. They already have the proper curve and moon skin grain ,i made the light holes a bit small just incase you use the new lights ,they are a bit smaller than the originals ,a wood dowl and 80 grit paper will open them up if you need to . A strip of foam on the back side at the bottom may be needed to keep them against the hockey stick just like the card board ones have but other than that they slip in under the back window rubber and 1 screw in the front where the small molding is and paint your interior color the pinch on wind lace covers the front just like the card board ones do and thats all thats need to install .

    Sorry I’ve not posted in here for ages… Car was more or less ready at end of September and was getting it ready for a large local show over here in England. Basically I never got there because ihas all sorts of issues with my C4, which I bought used and was supposed to have been rebuilt….needless to say it screwed up, so no show… Collected the box and TQ today, so that will be going back in over next 2 weeks or so, when I get a spare moment. In the meanwhile, I’ve been busy tidying up/fitting new interior parts eg one piece headliner, BMW E30 seats, 3 point sets belts, gauge pod etc and tidy up engine bay wiring etc chris

    69 Shaker Hood Packaging

    I was looking for a hood for my car and noticed the shipping to me in Ohio would be around $150 to $175 from the different web sites. I then found a reasonable price for a Scott Drake hood with free shipping, it was shipped through FedEx Freight. I was somewhat impressed with the packaging from Holley sold through the dominant online retailer.

    bucket seats

    Seat back is not adjustable, it only folds for access to rear seats and locks at a fix position when raised. Rubber stops are just to eliminate rattle at seat backs fixed position. I guess if you remove the rubber pieces, seat back will lean back a little more.

    Wilwood brakes

    Are they already disc brakes or are they still drums? I don't want to assume you already converted to disc because there will be a big jump in performance from manual drum to manual disc. Getting a booster installed is pretty difficult on a V8 even a 302 if the engine is still installed. You have clearance issues, new hard lines and a new brake pedal to install. None of those problems switching to manual discs. So if you don't already have them try the manual discs as an incremental step. Nothing you do will be wasted if you want to add a booster later.

    69 SuperCoupe

    I don't have any pics to post but I had to create some spacing on the backside of the bulb housings to replace what I cut off and so the bulbs sit right. I made spacers from PVC pipe, attached them to the bulb housings with JB Weld, primed with SEP then sprayed the area with spray-on rubber. They're solidly attached and not going anywhere. The headlight bowls were primed with SEP after completely coated with POR15 then top coated with KBS satin chassis black and the rims were sprayed with the spray-on rubber.

    The only thing I could add is if your car's engine is pretty much stock making lot of vacuum, power assist will work fine. If not tho and making low vacuum in my opinion u would be better off with manual discs. This is me been there done that thing

    windshield washer pump

    NO. 63 and 763 have nothing to do with the pump. Again: Use an ohmmeter to check for continuity (wires removed) from where wires 950 white/black stripe and 951 green connect to the wiper switch. with the knob depressed.

    No, as they will not fit. I had to return those and I got these instead, which worked perfect. The issue was the connector as it is not a screw on if you get the 3M Channel Bonding and Sidelite Adhesive, 08641, 47.3 mL Cartridge. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08JV19231/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o09_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 QWORK 20Pcs Static Mixing Nozzle Tip, Mixing Epoxy Adhesive Applicator Nozzle,Mixer Plastic Resin Mixing Tip for AB Gun 50ml/1.7oz(1:1/1:2Ratio)

    69 coupe from SVK

    Hi Guys ... after a while (that felt like forever) So my lesson learned - never judge engine after removing one cylinder head :) After I took down the second one o found some scratches in cylinder 6 and suspicious spot in cylinder 7 that could be a crack. So my optimism was gone and I knew I have to disassembly whole endine. I made penetration test of cylinder 7 - and it came out that it was no crack. The biggest disappointment was then I realized that the engine is already 0.040 over. The bearings of connection rods were also destroyed as well as on crankshaft. I spent hours on net to browse 351w topics and videos, what are my possibilities. To bore it over to 4.060" is to risky, to sleeve it to expensive and to find some good block for reasonable price in europe is impossible. So I decided to just refresh the engine (hone the cylinders, re ring it and change all bearings, timing, cam, lifters and oil pump), put it together so I can finish the car. With finished hone I was able to get roundness and taper to factory specs, but my bore is up to 0,002 inch over the top limit. Anyway, no option at this time, at least the crank is 0,010 under so I can let it grind to 0,020 and balance. Im looking now for parts to order. Except piston rings and camshaft it should be no problem. Rings - I'm not sure if I buy 0,040 over rings the gap will be not too big (my worn rings make 0,026" gap). I'm thinking to buy 0,060s and grind them to size, but I don't know if the shape of rings is already different because of bigger diameter. Camshaft - I can't find some stock cam or some alternative in any shop (everywhere is only edelbrock performer + )

    When I glued in my windows on my 69 vert I used 3M Channel Bonding and Sidelite Adhesive, 08641, 47.3 mL Cartridge with the Dispenser Gun, 50ml Dispensing Gun Kit Impression Mixing Dispensing Dispenser AB Gun 1:1/1:2 that I got on Amazon for $22. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07JMXTBW6/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Everything worked great and it was so much easier than using a caulking gun with various items installed to try to make it work. Yes, I tried it and it was a disaster.

    There is a hole in the body for the clip to attach. My tmi sail panels just came unglued when I snapped it in. Ridgerunner on here makes nice fiberglass replacements if you want another option.

    69 Mach One "R" Code for sale

    It has been almost a year, but true to his word, Bruce gave me first shot at it when he decided to put it back up for sale. Thank you Bruce. Bruce texted me on Wednesday to see if I was still interested. I drove 12 hours to get there on Sunday and it is in my garage now. I can’t wait to get to work on it. Bruce has done all the hard stuff already. Plenty more to do and more parts to buy. This car goes to the front of the line in my garage. Now I have a brother to my 1970 Mach 1.

    1970 Mustang Retromod - Boss 351

    Tonight I worked on getting the remnants of the roof off the car. Spot weld cutter front and back, and a death wheel used as a grinder on the sides. I still have the passenger side to do. @viperpete I am attaching the photo of my front floor support pin. Its the one I was talking about in message. I think maybe that hole isnt meant for the X measurement. I think I need to remove it and go with a flat plate like you have at the very front of the floor support.

    A friend at work bead blasted my headlight buckets for me, he's currently doing my headlight extensions. I found I needed to increase the hole on the backside by almost 3/8 inch to clear the back of the bulb housing. I also had to trim 3 tabs off the bulb housings, they were larger and didn't match the buckets. Touched up the backside of the bulb housings where I cut off the tabs with POR15 (the backside is metal). Coated the inside surface of the headlight buckets with POR15. Have to coat the backside then paint. Thinking of coating the rim of each bucket with a couple coats of spray rubber. I'm thinking it might prevent any rubbing of the headlight housing when mounted.

    A quick update: 1-the 408 stroker finally arrived in the crate across the pond after 9 month of delays, shipping issues etc 2-taken some times to get the various ancillary parts, shipping to U.K. is a real pain; JBA shorties etc 3-engine fitted and hoping to fire it up in next 3/4 weeks 4-just collecting the other parts to complete the car e.g glass will go in next 2/3 weeks car is booked into a major U.K. classic car show on 10 `July so has to be ready, but not sure if I’m going to make it chris

    Been making steady but what seems like slow progress over the last 2 months, whilst waiting for some parts to come over via US. New brake lines installed. Had a right game bench bleeding the master cylinder but all done now. Wiring harness is in and connected - thanks to Randy at Midlife for the refurb one, top drawer as usual - all electrics work fine All lights now working including my new sequential LED’s - love them ! Original column refurbed and manual steering all now complete - but I think the internal column is way to close the external housing nr to the coupling - I’ll put a post up in tech parts of forum - any thoughts ? (going to EPAS later down the line) the 408W stroker is about to land via US to Felixstowe U.K. in the next 10 days, been a long time coming, then I’ll fit it and hopefully drive it around the block Chris

    Sorry it’s been a fair time since I’ve updated progress. Relatively slow progress we work has been so busy, but I’ve started the long refit process: street or track front suspension in rear suspension in with axle fuel tank and lines in Changes to manual steering, quick rack, ready for EPAS later down the line Just trying to work out the brake lines and prop valve (bought a booster via mustang steve, we manual before) rear lights, bumper and new flush lenses with LED’s in just keep working up my new parts list, stuff is so hard to get over to U.K. at the moment, having to work 2 months in advance. 408W engine via Blueprint is on 5 month lead time (ordered 2 months ago) Chris

    69 Shaker Hood Packaging

    Shipped a hood out through a company here in Cali. Last week ,got a message from the buyer it was damaged in shipping ,shipping company shoved a fork lift fork through the box and cut a rear corner off the hood . Some times you get a part through like it is supposed to be and sometimes you dont its getting kind of like a crap shoot shipping now days ,i guess 1 out of about 200 isnt bad though .
