    Yep! We have a little info sheet that explains this, mounting instructions, and measures to get the best possible fit on each car. Pretty typical for composites on older cars......

    Ugh! I hate to even admit how much time we have into that rear bumper already! I am probably going to do two front bumpers in the end. Once completely stock based on an NOS bumper I have. The second will be a smoothed and tucked version as a mate to the rear bumper. I also have an NOS rear bumper that I may end up pulling a mold from to be able to offer composite factory-style bumpers for folks who want to be able to play in a medium other than steel.

    Making great progress on the custom rear bumper project for the Boss! Slow going but it's turning out just the way we wanted. Always a plus! http://1970boss302.blogspot.com/2018/04/rear-bumper-fabrication-project-part-2.html
  4. 1970 FB Toe Board Hole Repair

    A butt weld is the only proper way to patch sheet metal in 99.9% of the cases. It's much stronger, and more durable than a lap joint and when properly executed and finished, you will not have to worry about future hidden corrosion rearing its head years down the road. And no matter what you do, a lap joint WILL corrode over time.

    Sure! Easy, Peasy!

    Here is the small truck 1" M/C setup with a 2000 Mustang V6 reservoir and a Bendix booster. http://1970boss302.blogspot.com/search?q=Master+Cylinder It's a Feb of 1990 thru 1994 Ranger FWD & 2WD. You will need metric bubble flare adapters to bring the ports out to inverted flare (if you want).
  7. Quarter Panel Extension Doesn't fit

    Nothing screaming out as to the cause of the difference, but as I look at it, I am in agreement with Ridge. I'm betting the silver extension may not be as good as hoped. Also, Brian's measurement could be very helpful in sorting which extension is viable. Something odd going on for sure.

    Flip them over and please post photos of the back sides of each extension. I fear the red extension has been janked more than is obvious in the pictures you posted.

    Thanks! Schott makes some absolutely stunning wheels and the quality is amazing. While quite a bit more expensive than the normal fare, the difference in appearance and quality are truly "obvious". Helluva commitment for sure!

    Thanks Barry! These wheels are 18 x 9 in front and 18 x 10 out back with backspacing of 4.750" front and 5.900" rear. The rear hub webs have been narrowed a bit to get the 1" lip reveal difference between the front and back wheels.

    That looks super-sharp! Doing them in steel is a whole different exercise as you already know! I decided to go composite as a prelude to doing a few other bits in carbon and/or fiberglass a bit later down the road.
