    Took her out for a spin today with no major issues!! A couple of rattles need to be located/fixed, get the front end aligned, new exhaust, and she’ll be good to go.

    We finished up around five in the afternoon. I went with the Dyno Max Super Turbo mufflers. V band clamps and a X kit from Summit Racing and well as a complete kit from National Parts Depot. I have the turbo mufflers from the kit that I am planning to sell. I still need to weld on the chrome tips and make some minor adjustments. Then I can fire it up.

    Well i find this very interesting, You don't rise to this level of emotion there. So what would it take for you to rise up and speak out? Your media is like ours, Most only spout the daily copy given them for the day as real news is not allowed just the propaganda opinion. Anything that infringes on my right to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness is enough for me to stand up and push back. And anyone that will not allow a differing point of view is not worthy of being a friend let alone family.

    Well as soon as I get it back on the road the first thing I am going to do besides a Smokey burnout is let my wife Justyna drive it! She deserves it and nothing will give me more joy that to see her behind the wheel.

    very true, the air is the cleanest its ever been in 3 lifetimes. I believe the planet goes through cycles and it will do so long after were gone. even if the planet is all on-board, the climate will change and the fires in Cali have ZERO to do with climate change.

    The climate of this planet has changed and will continue to even if man was not here. Have we help it along? Sure and we have also help heal some of it too. Simply look at California smog as one point, changes made to clear it up made improvements there and else where. But it take every country to be on the same page to make it work for the globe. China says they MAY look into it around 2030. As many others keep piling up the trash but we are supposed to clap our hands and toss our cash to the paris climate accord as they will save us all. Right and Santa is real too!

    Thanks, that's a possibility though I'd have to buy a rectangular pair. This is what I was thinking about mounting in the airdam. 4" diameter I also have these on hand, 3.25 diameter. Final shape achieved & primed. I'll wet sand the entire thing next with 320 grit and re-prime. Once I get everything smooth I'll spray with some KBS rust seal and SEP. Hopefully that will add a layer of chip protection to the fiberglass.

    I rolled a fender! Shocked that it actually worked. Kept it warm at about 100-120 and it actually came around to almost a closed hem. On to the other side, and then I'm dropping the front. ;-)

    Never had the occasion to replace one. This is what I got for a new 750 on ebay. You can find these in most parts suppliers, summit, jegs, cjpp, npd, etc. I'm sure if its different a little searching on the internet would get you what you want.

    Pulled my steering wheel off to look into my horn and turn signal problems. New flasher unit fixed the turn signals. Realized the emergency flashers are on with the horn fuse. Got the fuse just as the sun set. Will start again in the morning.

    The section from the front to the mufflers took about 6 hours on Sunday and I woke up that morning with severe shoulder pain but was determined to get it finished. Half way through the day my wife had to jump in as welders helper and cover for me.

    Once we got the tailpipes mounted where they should go along with mufflers we could take our measurements. We still had to modify the pipes I had the muffler shop bend up. Then we worked on installing the X cross over section.

    This past weekend we tackled the exhaust system. I had my friend who works as a welder come up and give me a hand. Gary is working on big projects like tunnels and contracts with Disney. This is the first exhaust he has done. foot note; I am running the stick exhaust on the 390 currently but will upgrade to long tube headers in the future when I can afford it. A few weeks ago I took the pipes coming off the manifold and had a shop bend the 2.5 pipe similar to what I had on the car near the transmission. I still had to massage it. So the length was about 24" long. When Gary arrived we started at the back of the car to line up the muffles with the original brackets. I still had to fabricate a intermediate piece to attach the mufflers to the brackets.

    very true, friends and family lost over these politics. Problem is the Dems are looking for communism and we not. So they are invited to leave a capitalist country and go to Venezuela, Cuba, China if they like. The media like CNN, MSNBC will only show you the leftist view. You can tell because everything they say is their opinion against the president. (Who will win again)

    Just ask them a serious question, what is it about the Democrat party that makes you support and vote for them? Is it the one million abortions per year, the fact that they support the criminals over the law, that they support illegal aliens over citizens? How obtuse must one be to follow those maroons?

    Had a good cruise last night, about 200 cars up and down the street. Now gave an 8 ga alternator wire. Last night with headlight on it read 13.5 . The drive home at night was about an hour, read 13.5. Without likes it’s 14+. Checked wires when I got home, none were hot, either was the alternator, should I change the Alternator wire from 8 to 4 gauge? Someone on the Facebook Cruise page posted my car

    Hi Vic, Now that the weather is cooling off I will be back working on the Mustang between trips to southern Virginia where my wife & I purchased a house. The house is just west of Martinsville in Virginia which we are going to renovate to use as our house when we retire in 2 years, & we will sell the house we are currently living in here in NJ. Here is a pic of the house. The house sits on 1 acre of land & there is enough room to put up a 2 car garage to the left of the carport. I have to get more welding gas before I can weld in the sub frame connectors.

    1970 Convertible Restoration

    Hi all. Back working on the car, after spending most the summer travelling/working in Canada/Quarantining... Back in NC for a couple weeks, and trying to get some mini-projects out of the way. I am headed over to Mike's (Latoracing) who has kept a watchful eye on my car over the past months, while putting some finishing touches on it. I plan on hanging the doors on the car, so Mike can have his beautifully welded door braces back. To get ready for that, I pulled the doors out of storage, I had stripped the contents off the doors and had them media blasted and epoxy primed. Over last day or so, I put some Boom Mat in the doors, installed new window regulators, window guides, internal bump stops, and the door latch on both doors. I also replaced some of the worn parts on the window guides and rear bump stops. I also put new gaskets on the bolt in window mounts. This is all a lot easier to do when the door is off of the car. First 3 pics Old window guide spacers. Note that taper faces to the center of the guard. New bushings from NPD. Refurbished window guide with new bushings and new gasket. Next pic - door where you can see Boom Mat and window regulator. The two bolts and the oval plate at the latch end of the door hold in the rear bump stop. The door has a slotted hole in it to allow up and down movement. I always start with the stop pushed all the way down. The oval plate will need to be painted body color, so don't lose these when you take your door apart. (There are also smaller oval plates used for the rear window regulators on coupes and convertibles) Next set of pics - the rear window stop has a felt pad on it to keep the window from scratching when going up and down. One of mine was missing, the other was worn out. I couldn't find an exact replacement, but I found some in the NPD Catalog for earlier year Mustangs. They are slightly longer, so a quick cut with the hacksaw solved that problem. Mine were riveted in, you can see the rivets in the picture with the rear stop flipped over. So, I drilled out the rivets. The window felt kit came with a couple large staples, which I did not use, due to less than great results by the installer (me) in previous attempts with these type of stapled installs. So, I used 3M double sided body tape instead. I double stacked it and compressed it in my vice. I have used this tape to hold body parts on for later model cars, so I am sure it will last here. Last project was to drill a hole and put in a riv-nut to mount my 1969 Sport Mirrors. I had 2 existing holes that were much too close for the approx 7" distance between the new mounting hole. My car had these on both doors. The front "riv-nut" that was existing on both doors was actually a rubber/composite insert, which was easy to remove. I got a sport mirror mounting kit from NPD that had the correct screws and riv-nut. So, measure twice, drill once, and had a new hole (17/64") for the 1/4" riv-nut. I use riv-nuts a lot they are great for flush mounting stuff where you can't have a screw/bolt-nut combination. A while back, I got myself a riv-nut driver attachment for my DeWalt 20v drill. It works great. You progressively work your way tighter by using the clutch setting on the drill, until the riv-nut doesn't rotate anymore. If you go too far, you will deform the metal. Mine worked with the clutch setting on 10-11. It makes a nice, flush connection if done properly. I have included a pic of the adaptor if anyone is interested. Mine came with a bunch of dies that are for all your common machine screws and 1/4 -20 fasteners. It also has the equivalent metric sized dies. The only thing I am not really happy with is the "gasket" for the mirrors, that I got from NPD. If anyone has a mirror gasket that doesn't look like it is "squished" out on the sides, I would appreciate the info. The window project is a great weekend/weeknight project to do, which will give you better window operation in the end. Don't forget to use lubricant (lithium grease) when you do the final assembly.

    Took the plunge on Dakota Digital RTX. No regrets. The water temp sender, with adapter bushing, is a bit too close to the 351C alternator top bracket. The wire connector can't plug on to it. Maybe D/D has a right-angle connector version of their harness. Solution for now is to trim away much of the strain relief that is molded on to the connector. All good.

    Prayers have been answered and we got some great news today. Stage one, cell doesn’t appear to have any blood vessels through it, and lymph nodes looked normal. Next is choose between a lumpectomy with centralized radiation or a mastectomy. Lymph nodes would be removed during either procedure and then more thoroughly checked. Dr was so awesome and took the time to explain what we are dealing with, what happens next, options on how to proceed, genetic test available to help with that decision as well as benefit Erin, and then preventive measures to help insure another cell doesn’t pop up. Sue was so relieved as I and we can now focus on what it actually is, in lieu of the unknown. Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers!
