    No need for congratulations as I've done nothing...yet! My question is who's going to moderate the moderators??? Hopefully there will be a flat learning curve.
     
    And Ridge Runner, I'm no Sir, I work for a living.
     
    All I can think of is be careful what you wish for.
     
    SPAMMERS BE DAMNED!

    LOL! I managed to zap it without deleting my own account, so we're off to a good start, I think.

    I know I'm late to the party but my Ford replacement part matches those pictured above.

    So I finally got around to replacing my broken, worn out leaf springs. The car now sits like it should, and no longer looks like it dragging its ass down the road.
     

    Old on top, new on bottom. I wonder where that missing chunk of spring ended up...
     
    But as I'm admiring my work, I notice my backup lights are permanently illuminated. The tired, old, once-repaired switch is sticking. So I drop $50 bucks for a Daniel Carpenter reproduction and spend some more time under the car.
     
    Thinking I'm in good shape, I clean up the car and hit my first cruise-in of the year. When I get home, I try to pop the hood and it won't open. WTF? Fortunately, you can get to the bolts on the hood latch thru the grill and when I get it off I discover a spring on the hood latch has broken. So now I get to search for a replacement spring, and hopefully don't have to drop more money on a new latch. And so it goes...
     

    Anyone know where to get one of those springs?

    That truck is sweet. Looks great in black. But you're right, put some thinner rubber on the rear
     
    My first car? The one in my sig! I saved up all my money the summer I turned 16 working as a busboy (1974) I found this sitting in a gas station with a for sale sign in it - $800.

    69RavenConv reacted to Chelby-Ann in Glue In Door Glass - Feedback   
    So I have read as much as I can on the subject and I am ready to glue in the door glass and the back windows on my '69 Coupe. I have ordered 2 tubes of 3M 08641 Channel Bonding and Sidelight Adhesive today and should have it on Wednesday. I have mocked it all up and ready to go. I did use rubber strips however they are not solid. They are cellous so they are a little spongy. I will get a strip of solid rubber tomorrow. I guess I will cut the shims down since there are no discussions on exactly how to apply them. It all looks good. The front and rear brackets appear to follow the contour of the window. If there is any feedback I am all ears. I want to do this right and I hope I used all of the information correctly. Thanks. Bill. Posted from my Kindle.

    69RavenConv got a reaction from Protowrxs in 1969 mustang grande 250 carb catches on fire   
    I've seen this when the ignition timing is way off. Or possibly an intake valve that isn't closing properly. I know you said you checked both of these things but may be worth another look. I would think the only way a carb can catch on fire is combustion coming back up the intake manifold or a gasoline leak dripping on a hot surface.

    Great idea and a nice looking car. Metuchen , NJ., Myrtle Beach and Daytona come to mind on your way to Key West. (Of course, there's at ton of good stops on the way, not all Mustang related.)

    69RavenConv reacted to Mike65 in Mike65's 69 Coupe build   
    Since the weather finally turned crappy & I can't work on the Coupe outside anymore I am doing what I can in the garage. I am moving the e brake from under the dash to a Fox Mustang trans tunnel center mount e brake. I didn't want to cut up a factory 69 Mustang console so I sold it & purchased a console off e bay from a 1974 Mustang II which already has the cut out for the e brake handle. I had to fab the mounting brackets which I did today. Next thing I have to do is mount the console fitting it to the shifter opening in the floor so I know where to mount the e brake handle.
