  1. Still trying to find a nice 69 passenger side clear glue in glass for my 69 sportsroof. Also need a door lock rod for the drivers side. Holding out for good original parts. Let me know if you have either available?
  2. Thanks Mach. I need the card too. I should’ve been more specific. I need the paint color of the metal tray under the cardboard.
  3. My package tray isn’t original to the car, kinda looks like dark charcoal metallic is on it but not sure. Can someone advise if the package tray on a sportsrooof non fold down seat should be body color or dark charcoal gray or black or?????
  4. Thanks unilec, I may go that route and make the best of it. I’m still holding out for a better glass since they’re a pain to put in and I want to be satisfied.
  5. Cantedvalve, Did you have time to status check the glass?
  6. I have one with a chip, another with scratches. I’m looking for a pretty nice glass. When yours is clean, does it have any flaws? Can you ship to 42518 ky?
  7. I’ve been searching for a nice passenger side door glass for at least a couple of years. Getting a little desperate now that the car is nearing completion. Anybody have a 69 pass side clear sportsroof glue in door glass they can sell and ship. I’m in ky if there’s any within driving distance.
  8. I think it’s a urethane primer that’s applied to etch the glass. My glass had it on there already so I didn’t buy it, it was $35 a bottle at the parts house I use.
  9. Thank you much. I went with the 3/8. Install went perfect today.
  10. Anyone know for sure what size ribbon I need to install the windshield with? I’ve researched a lot, coming up with 5/16” or 3/8”. It is a replacement glass and I don’t see any markings on it.
  11. I just did this. I would not recommend the ones I purchased from NPD. I don’t remember the brand right off but they weren’t tmi ones. Mine had plenty material to wrap around the window pinch weld if needed. The new cardboard is too stiff and flat. That caused a lot of light to bleed out of the top. The clip on the rear came off on both. The adhesive they used to glue the moonskin on didn’t dry. It was a gooey mess. I made my own plate to secure the clip on the back with black weatherstripping adhesive and contoured the panel some with steam and weighted it with body dolly’s. Once contoured, the moonskin was bubbled. One came out ok but it looked used after all that. I gave up, I just ordered 2 Fiberglas sail panels from Ridgerunner on here. He makes them and come highly recommended. I was planning on ordering the tmi version had I not came across Ridgerunners offering but tmi aren’t in stock anywhere. I would not recommend headliner adhesive. It dries much like pvc glue in my experience. I much preferred the black weatherstripping adhesive. It sticks very well and you can adjust it for several days. The 3M super77 might go on smoother.
  12. Do you have an installed pic and price? I’m ready to order. Do you have a site? How do you prefer yo communicate? I sent a message if it’s any easier.
  13. Curious if you’re still making 69sportsroof sail panels.
  14. It’s going to be a touring engine at first, so the manifolds will be fine. It may grow on me to put headers on later. I have another mustang (68 coupe)that’s performance oriented that I restored in the late 80’s.
  15. Late to respond but yes I did find a 351w. 94 roller block. Got it machined, balanced and ready to assemble with D0 heads. Only things I lack is better C9 exhaust manifolds than I have and valve covers but I’ve not decided which VC I’d want.
  16. I’m about to finish restoring a 69 deluxe console. I have a couple of question about the hardware that secures the upper. The rear two screws that go down thru the seatbelt holder, what type screw does it use/finish. I see this hardware kit and it has 2 black sheet metal screws in it. I’m thinking it’s for those screws but not sure. Is any other hardware used underneath with the holes in the metal crossmember? Mine does appear to ever had screws thru it. Also the screws in the top front that secures the wiring harness, what type hardware goes there? Thanks for any insight......Jeff
  17. Just wanted to update my experience with acc carpet. I bought the raylon mass backed black w/red insert Mach 1 carpet. It laid in near perfectly straight from the box. I used dynamat extreme, then 1/4” dynaliner and finally the acc mass backed carpet. Full coverage on both dyna products. Both dyna products stacked to 3/8” and didn’t seem to aggravate the way the carpet lays. It seems to me like it’s density is the same as my original 68 carpet. I’ve yet to have it outside in good light yet though. The only complaint I have and yet undecided if I’ll try to resolve, is the passenger rear red insert is sewn in crooked. If I knew the black period floor mats would hide it, I might leave it be but would bother me somewhat just knowing it ain’t right. It’s not a little bit crooked either. Best I can measure, it’s over an inch out of square :( slightly noticeable in the bottom picture but my pics doesn’t show how bad it is.
  18. Thank you gentlemen. I ended up ordering the red inserts with mass backed. From internet studies your knowledge seems all 69’s Mach’s came with red inserts no matter the exterior color. One last question. Does the period mustang floor mats cover the red color inserts or is red floor mats more correct for a black interior/black jade mach1.
  19. I have a 69 Mach 1. It’s coded C5 exterior as black jade. The interior code is 3A. All I can find online says black high back Mach 1 seats, which I have with a red stripe. Does anybody have a book or document to confirm the correct carpet would have 4 red inserts? Along with the red stripe in the seats? Seems like an un-matching combo. I want it to look correct if that is indeed the way Ford built it. Black jade exterior, black mach1 seats with red stripes and black carpet with 4 red inserts? Is ACC w/mass backed the best available?
  20. I’m in southern ky and looking to purchase a 351 block or engine. I prefer either the 1969-74 or maybe the 94-97 block or complete engine. I can travel some to pick it up. Let me know if you have anything available.
  21. After I broke a few tips off those Rubber plugs by pushing them in, I used a piece of the inner thread of paracord to pull the rubber tip thru instead of pushing with tools. I just tied the string onto the tip and soaped it and the came right thru.
  22. I would call or email them, that looks like a generic stock photo to me. I have some on the front of my car from there that came as 1 piece rotors.
