  1. Creeps the SH*T out of me!
  2. TexasEd, Is that your original bezel or a repro?
  3. Hello all, Just curious to hear first hand experiences with the repro std. interior gauge bezels available and if there is any one better than the other. NPD seems to be perpetually out of stock on the one they offer but I see Virginia Classic Mustang has one that appears to be available. Anyone have any experiences they are willing to share good/bad? Pictures would be great if ya got 'em! Looking for the best quality and fit we can find as the OE parts out there are getting rougher and rougher as years pass. Thanks in advance!
  4. Just as a point of reference, the 1970 floor pan stamping was different than the 1969 to allow extra clearance in the tunnel to accommodate the Hurst shifter option. The “bump” tunnel in the 70 can also make seat options a bit tight in comparison to a 69 as well.
  5. +1 And Street or Tracks systems are already proven on some pretty big power applications.
  6. FINALLY! The voice of reason and experience! THANK YOU!!!!
  7. Cunifer tubing is an outstanding choice for brake and fuel lines and is considered the "elite" material in the modern extreme performance and luxury car world today. Several manufacturers use cunifer tubing exclusively and many of the top-tier custom builders around the country use it daily. It is equally corrosion resistant as stainless and when polished is difficult to tell the difference between it and stainless. Unless you have a desire for the specific aesthetic appearance of stainless, cunifer is the best choice from all other mechanical perspectives (ease of flaring, ease of bending, no worry of cracking at the flare and/or work hardening, more vibration resistant, etc.) and it can be "worked" with conventional flaring tools, benders & cutters with far greater success than stainless in the average home shop. Beyond that, it's actually kind of "fun" to work with too!
  8. Those are die locator/retention tabs and can be safely trimmed off as recommended above. No worries!
  9. Clausen Z-Chrome Rust Defender is one of the best high build poly primers we've ever used. Great for locking down all your bodywork and it has a "self guide coat" feature that makes leveling panels quite easy. Once it's flat, it takes primers, surfacers, etc. really well. PPG is the standard here for everything after that.
  10. Hello all, Looking for a RH fastback quarter window latch striker. Chrome and cable condition not a big deal, but prefer something not too pitted or worn (in good, functional shape) so it can be painted. PM if you have one available and please include price. Thanks! Sven Pruett Lake Orion, MI
  11. Thanks for the response! Any bending required like Jet 445 mentioned above?
  12. Thanks for the feedback! What supplier did you go to for these? Bending trim always makes me pucker up a little. Not a fan!
  13. Wanted to reach out to those that have recent experience with the reproduction quarter window moldings that are out there. I have finally exhausted my inventory of original molding and wanted to see what the 69-70 fastback community has to say about the fit of the new stuff. Anyone have any pros/cons to share? Thanks in advance!
