    That's probably the most logical, sensible idea I've heard in a long time.

    So many of us don’t want to cut up the interior to mount speakers yet want some level of music when we are out driving.
    Has anyone else considered something like a Bose Sounlink Mini 2? - my thoughts were have an original radio in the car for appearance and just use the phone with a streaming service playing through a halfway decent portable Bluetooth speaker which could sit on the dash top with a bit of hook and loop tape holding it.

    May be the brackets were not glued to correct spots thus limiting the adjustment.

    I have a 69 hood ,and the 71-73 is on its way. I am going to peel the skin on the 69 and re place with the 71 -73 skin . The trick will be using the under pocket for the ram air in the 71 -73 under brace and welding it into the 69 under brace .i plan on smooting in the scoops ,then pull a mold

    Funny how you forget stuff. I completely forgot about this 70 notch back I owned for maybe 6 months in Houston around maybe 1985??. Was just looking at old pictures.
    Was a factory shaker, 4 bbl and 4 gear. I wasn't making enough money to rub two nickels together and simply couldn't afford to keep it running. One of my proudest moments in life was when my beautiful bride grabbed major 2nd gear rubber in this car! Really wish I kept it, but I don't see how it would have been possible with just starting out life and upcoming family. It's a good memory.

    69RavenConv reacted to stangs-R-me in Conv. top switch   
    1969 has TWO switch holes
    1970 has only ONE centered switch hole
    1969 options included Cruise, Power Top, and Rear Window De-Fog Blower (Hardtop only).
    1970 options included Fog Lights (Mach 1 only), Power Top, and Rear Window De-Fog Blower (Hardtop only).
    Pretty sure that is it.

    At one time, I worked in the #2 World Trade Center (South Tower) on the 87th floor.  Years later, on 9-11-2001, colleagues and friends perished in the terrorist attack  Remembering them today.
    Thoughts and prayers go to all the families who were impacted by this tragic event.  WGI was an Engineering company that today is part of AECOM.  The legacy company I worked for had people from the 78th to the 92 floor on #2WTC.

    Hope OP does not mind.
    It attaches in place of the jack pad. Made with parts from a swing set and a piece of square tubing. Door sits on the 2x4 so the edge of it does not get damaged. I also put some padding on the wood before I put the door on it. If you balance the door, it does not tip over. Use the bungee chords to squeeze/hold the door between posts after I load the door with the hinged posts down. I install/adjust doors alone with it.
