  1. Who's Mini Tub kit is this. I just did a set of Mini Tubs using Detroit speeds kit and it was a huge pain in the ass, and their paperwork that comes with the kit is totally different than the videos online they have of installing the same kit... Basically now that it is all done my rear seats in my sons 68 Coupe wont fit without some modification to the seats or the tubs...On the plus side tho the car will now SWALLOW a set of 315/30/17 Tires with PLENTY Room to spare and if tires weren't so expensive I would go to a 335 LOL
  2. When I run across something I did not expect or budget for while doing work for pay "Which I hardly ever do anymore" I ALWAYS call the customer and inform them of what I have found and ask them to come take a look at it and then give a price to fix it or just patch it up LOL..
  3. How about a few pics of the little roll around contraption you have under the ass end of the car..Need to fab up something to move a few of mine around on like this
  4. Man these old school broncos are fetching a FORTUNE right now..to think something we used as old hunting trucks are fetching 50-100k plus LOL. So they Re-Pop Bronco full bodies now? I want to know what that bright orange tube your using for the header mock up is? You guys are doing some Jam up work for sure...
  5. I'm running AFR 205 Heads on My little 408 and it made 550 Crank Hp My best friend is running a set of Chepo Patriot performance heads with their valves and Comp Springs and his 408 with slightly bigger cam than I am running put down 410 RWHP through a TKO500... The Patriots have come a LONG way. Trickflow is also Jam up for the money but the Twisted wedge series you will need to check PTV clearance closely as they might need TF Pistons.
  6. Always love seeing Buckeye's Stock appearing "As ford should have built them Frame Rails" Man those are killer and I'm considering doing a set like that on my sons 68 Coupe I am building.
  7. Damn Newstang looks like you have a bit more room in your transmission tunnel than I do in mine. I ran my wires up the tunnel and into the engine bay, then through the fire wall and then cut a hole in the glove box liner to run wires through and simply set my controller in the glove box...It sits in there upside down but I can still read it.
  8. Yeah Classic auto air control panel for the AC. Harness was just long enough to move controls all the way back there which is right at my finger tips when I'm resting on the console
  9. Well after much deliberation I decided to build another center console and take my time and do some upgrades like Cup Holders, USB Ports and such...I built one to about 75% completion and didnt like how the face plate looked so I trashed it and started over, heres the end result. Wish I was better at installing upholstery but it doesnt look to shabby. Have to order me a billet bezel and leather shifter boot and she will be all buttoned up
  10. Okay someone posted a thread where they took some recessed door handles from some kinda small car and used them on our 69's they were similar to the Kingdig designs stuff but were a factory door handle on some sort of small british car or something. You push the lock button and the handle pops out then it works like a normal handle. Anyone have a link to this?

  13. I used a Pump from a 93 F150 if I recall. Just bought an adapter for pressure side and had a longer line made..been working just fine for 6 years now
  14. 393 or 408 seems to be most plentiful and cheapest. We ran a 408 with TKO and 3.50 gears deep into the 12s with stock 351 heads and a small roller cam with full interior.
  15. So I happen to have a set of brand new 351C comp rockers in 1.73 ratio and was wondering if I could run them on my 408W with my AFR heads? The rockers require 7/16 rocker studs which my AFR heads have. Would just like to get a little more lift out of my Little roller cam. Will these work?
  16. Go with ABS, because you WILL hit something with it and when you do, the ABS will bend and flex, as the fiberglass will crack and break
  17. Fiero Seats are pretty much bolt in, just need to extend the rear bolt mount back a tad bit... Mr. Mikes Fiero seat covers are awesome btw... I found 2 fieros locally, one had a V8 Conversion and both ahd near perfect seats in them and I got guy down to $500 for both cars, but just picked up a 73 Vega and 64 Impala wagon so no room for 2 Fieros
  18. Hell lets make it $100.00 for everything plus you pay for the ride, need it out of my shop
  19. Have the following items remaining. Koni Classic Front Shocks Rancho Rear adjustable Shocks 1 Pair of Front Coil Springs (OTR) 1 Pair of Mid Eye rear leaf Springs with extended hangers (OTR) Someone give me $150 plus shipping for EVERYTHING
  20. Well if you can pick it up cheap enough and if it has parts that you need / want for your car or a future project then try to scoop it up. Its really IMHO not worth saving but that is your call. I recently ran across what I'm pretty sure is a 69 GT car about 10 miles from my house and on my first visit I noticed a LOT of really good stuff and got excited, but when I revisited the car during the day and chopped down a few bushes I saw that it was only worth the parts that I wanted / Needed .... Mainly a 100% Complete Fold down seat kit with untouched trap door and all the brackets, along with a Tilt Steering column..... The guy that owned the car died and his mother was now in possession of it and she was not at all happy when she pulled up and saw me inspecting it. I'm sure it held some sentimental value to her, but after my inspection I quickly saw that it was a Rotted shell that apparently had the clock catch fire at some point in its life and had burned the dash out b4 it was extinguished. Long story short... If its a good M2 front kit and good rear kit and has a nice 9" and host of other good useable parts, take 1k cash with you and tell him all ya have is 1000 bucks and it needs WAY more work than its worth LOL
