    Latest 1969 article for one of our builds. He brought it to us with suspension in it. We did all the body work and painting plus put most of it together. http://www.mustangandfords.com/features/0119-woodward-dream-cruiser-1969-mustang-sportsroof/

    The modeling wouldn’t be so easy but the FEA wouldn’t be that difficult either and the results would easily show the differences. Was meaning to post later but my oldest daughter went into labor with our 2nd grandchild. Bored and posting from the waiting room.

    I am not saying they dont help some ,if you have all the front end bracing they probably do some ,but if you have none of the front bracing especially those who have done a mustang ll type front end ,there is nothing to support the front rails . Every part of a unibody is part of the structure ,the more removed the weaker it gets

    Vulcanet Car detailing wipes

    I was able to find a link for UK https://www.amazon.co.uk/d/Cleaning-Kits/Vulcanet-motorcycle-cleaning-degreaser-protection/B0081RY8WA but it seems impossible to find in the US. That is certainly disappointing...

    Engine, Driveshaft and 3rd Member Angles

    I have milled 0.200" from the carb pad of a Victor Jr. to gain a little more hood clearance. I can tell you, the carb pad is horizontal, no slope to it at all. Why, I don't know. I wouldn't use that as a reference to set your motor and trans angle. If you want a level carb pad I have seen some tapered spacers on Summit Racing's website. I might have missed something, but it seems when the drop motor mounts are being installed, vibration issues pop up.

    Hey Terry, I can't remember if you were considering doing the convertible seat riser or not, and I'm too lazy to read the thread again. Here's a tip of you are going to add the one piece seat riser. All of the one piece risers are 1" taller than the individual seat risers, which limits the head room for some folks. This is why I spliced in the one piece hump onto my stock st risers. It's kind of a pain as the inner seat rails are fighting for the same space, which makes the inner seat belt bolt a tight fit.

    the usual way- T A X E S, and its not free at all... if you work. I've heard that less than half the population works now- how appalling is that? Welfare is the most addictive thing in the world. You can thank LBJ and his Great Society.

    As I said, I don't have much faith in that test. I do have faith in Multimatic's 4-post chassis rig.

    Ronald Reagan is on a rotisserie constantly flipping over in his grave, seeing what his state has become. Many believe the Dems have been taken of by politicians that are literally insane. Maybe all that sunshine cooks their brains? I still call it home, but I'm very glad I left.

    I bought this liner from Wallmart ,it is made by rustolium ,$80 for a sprayable gallon and it is just as good as the expensive stuff . Its a two part mix and takes over night to fully cure . I even sprayed it in the roof ,i had a spot that pushed down easily ,it didnt stay down but it was like a soft spot ,after spraying the bed liner ,it would not push down any more,also took out the ringing when you tapped on the roof

    No. All you need is a clutch pedal for your year. Cut down the brake pedal to match. http://transmission.moderndriveline.com/speed/pc/Clutch-pedal-69-70-Mustang-Cougar-45p198.htm

    The so called experts...what do they know...glue...spot welds.....huh? I don't have to tell you things are bad. Everybody knows they are bad. Now, some even think that MIG welds are bad....next what will it be....big engines are bad....loud exhaust is bad....big tires...big brakes...gas guzzlers.....oh the big carbon footprint...oh the horror.....thousands will be die...!!!! Fight back against the idiots, the a**holes, the mis-informed, and the non-believers. Save it, restore it, MIG weld it, and drive it like you stole it.... I'M AS MAD AS HELL, AND I'M NOT GOING TO TAKE THIS ANYMORE!

    My fastback is all stock, a southern California car with 77k on the odometer and no rust. I tried picking it up from the drivers front torque box. The front passenger tire stayed on the ground but the suspension unwound, same with the rear drivers tire. So three down one up. Just out of curiosity I'll have to see what goes on with the coupes construction (behind the rear seat?) that stiffens it up. I wonder if I could get three in the air if I put in an export brace and a solid plate behind the rear seat. From the torsion test the export brace gives a 25% improvement, and a rear seat divider is 11%. A Monte Carlo bar does 0%- it just keeps the towers separated. Welded-in SFCs without cross bracing give 0%.

    I'd suspect the turn signal switch as the first thing to look at: they are simply not very reliable.

    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.

    Not much of a photo person. These are what I can find that are decent quality; 2 of the "70, one of "69 Grande.
