  1. Been there, done that. For those wanting to avoid the fiberglass you can buy the late model scoop. It is nearly identical to original but does have wrinkle finish that you may need to strip. I was going to go this route and finally found a deal on an original. Also you can buy the adapter ring from the Aussies to adapt your air cleaner to accept the midplate. All very doable.
  2. sorry I cleared messages but mailbox wasn't full? What do you have left?
  3. "AC box" typically is referred to as the evaporator case - the fiberglass box behind the dash that houses both the evaporator and heater cores. Package tray is a general term that applies to the interior panel that goes between the top of the rear seat and the back glass. These tend to be a popular area to install speakers on fixed seat cars. I only have one rear light assy.
  4. I had bought the expensive Scott Drake stainless plates and while they were nice and heavy they were too much bling for my build. They were like polished nickel finish, different than chrome if you know your metal finishes. They seemed to fit ok. I sold them and bought a set of the cheaper aluminum ones. My only gripe was the stamping for the Ford logo plate. It was a bit soft and was a little smaller than it needed to be. Because of this the plates didn't nest down in it well. I remedied this by taking the plate and very lightly broke the edges of the plate upward like a bowl. They fit great and look more like original fit. Doubt you could tell anything had been done unless you looked very close
  5. I have an AC box, rear package tray and a taillight assy
  6. Wow - what a great way to bond and build memories...look forward to the journey.
  7. 1/2" is plenty...you should see what my clearances are. And you can trim springs though not many do it today. Some of the old school drag racers did it.
  8. This appears to be working now since I posted that note. Pretty odd.
  9. Not sure if this was posted already or may be part of the general search function being dead but the canned searches such as "new content" button in upper RH corner always returns "no new content". Also get the same result using the New Content quick search bar on left when there is plenty of activity going on since my last visit. As a result I have to load forums page and browse each forum individually for newest topics.
  10. Definitely different. The pads might interchange but functionally the 70 has the locking disk for the locking column and 69 does not.
  11. Here's a polished unit for $160 http://www.ebay.com/itm/Polished-Aluminum-Sanden-508-AC-12V-Air-Compressor-V-Belt-Pulley-2-Groove-/351291701325?pt=Motors_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories&hash=item51ca9df84d&vxp=mtr
  12. I thought you were being sarcastic since my car is one of the lowest, if not the lowest on the site. :) Yes, the kit included stainless flex lines. I had to fab up retainer brackets to secure the inboard end to the frame rail.
