    Happy 50th

    They usually start building "next year's models" around July or August. For example, I heard a radio ad today enticing me to go buy a 2019 RAM pickup.

    I got another project car

    Wow, I've lived just outside Mansfield, just outside Akron, and also worked in Solon for many years. We probably passed each other on the roads many times and never knew it. Enjoy the sunshine in AZ!

    I got another project car

    On January 4 thru 11, probably the only engine I'll be tuning is on my snow thrower, LOL.

    He was out trick-or-treating on the birthday no doubt.

    70 Convertible top replacement

    Trust me, if I can do it, anyone on this forum can do it (with enough bull-headed stubbornness). I was fortunate that my frame was was not monkeyed with, though. Make the wooden jig Ridge Runner referred to, and get the frame all squared up before any soft material goes on.

    70 Convertible top replacement

    The advice above is all good. I did my own and it came out great but it was probably as much luck as skill. Take your time - a lot of time - test fit everything 3 or 4 times and do it where it is warm. Take the WCCC videos with a grain of salt. They improvise a technique on tape and everyone assumes it's the way everyone does it.

    Passenger door glass issue

    That's always a possibility. These were inexpensive cars built to be inexpensive 50 years ago. Lots of slop in the build tolerances, LOL.

    Passenger door glass issue

    By loosening the bolt on the bottom of the door, the guide rods can be adjusted inboard and outboard. But it sounds like you've tried that and it doesn't do it for you. Another possibility is that the glass was glued at an incorrect angle. The glass should be parallel to the bracket sides.

    Wanna buy Buzz Aldrin's car?

    It's not a Mustang but you can't deny it's got a cool heritage... https://historical.ha.com/itm/explorers/buzz-aldrin-s-1988-red-mercedes-560-sl-convertible-with-lois-aldrin-s-moongal-california-license-plate-originally-from-his/a/6205-52572.s?ic4=GalleryView-ShortDescription-071515

    Was the rear quarter sheet metal replaced?

    1969 Mustang Sportsroof For Sale

    Very tasteful resto mod. You should have no trouble finding a buyer.
  14. That's a tough one to diagnose on the internet. No starts are usually fuel or spark problems (the holy trinity is fuel, spark and compression, and since the car runs, compression is probably ok). My first thought would be fuel. Are the floats and choke working properly? Carburetor bowl boiling dry when hot? Good spark plugs and wires?
