  1. Thanks Buening (Jay?). That is something to consider with the Mustang Steve brackets. Only thing I'd have to get shortened on mine is the housing if I only do 1/2" on each side to bring it back to stock width within 1/16" on each side or basically 1/8" narrower than stock. Axles would remain the same.
  2. Sounds healthy. When you get a chance could you get a couple of pictures from different angles and standing on a ladder looking at the hood closed. I'm assuming you did the 69 Mach 1 blackout hood treatment on it? Flat or?
  3. Man I've always admired your car it's so darn clean, has a great stance, it just flat out looks mean and is a beautiful example.
  4. Hello Phil I'm working on a 70 but 69/70 are basically the same suspension wise. Here's a link to the suspension I'm using: http://www.streetortrack.com/Street-or-Track-Rear-Bilstein-3-Link-Coilover-System-pr-24572.html
  5. Nice looks like it's got quite a few MTF parts on it. Did your shop do it?
  6. I'm ditching the leaf springs and installing a SorT coilover 3-link that is patiently waiting in the garage.
  7. Thanks. Right now I'm running a leaf spring setup, 5- leaf mid-eyes. I'm installing the SorT coilover 3-link setup. I am running a 7/16" spacer that has to be used with the Vintage Venom brake setup. I'd like to get the rear a tad lower and would feel comfortable with a little more wiggle room. This is why I'm wanting to do the MTF mimitubs and thinking about narrowing the rear. If that gives me the ability to run a wider tire than that's a bonus. I've even thought about doing a slight Trans-am flare on the rear if needed.
  8. Definitely nice to be able to get started back on your project. I'm basically doing the same now.
  9. Those parts look really good finished that way.
  10. So trying to figure out what is the best way to go in my situation. Getting back to working on my 70 Mach 1, lots has been planned and many parts already purchased. I'm looking at doing a minitub on it and am swaying towards the MTF tubs. Looked at the DS tubs and Dynacorn tubs but don't really want to deal with interior mods. I already have the SorT coilover kit for the front and rear. Years ago I purchased the Vintage Venom Cobra brake kit and installed it. That's where I'm hoping to get some advice from someone that may know or can give me better advice then my thinking. In the rear the Vintage Venom kit uses a bracket for the caliper and a hubcentric spacer that moves the wheel out approximately 7/16". The MTF mimitubs give around 2" more of width in the wheelwell, if I understand correctly. (Has anyone done these on a 69-70 that would share some pictures? If so there appears to be a section towards the front that the tub doesn't sit flush with the rail. What is the measurement from the rail to the inner edge of the tub in that area?). So the SorT rear kit I purchased you weld the brackets on your rear housing. Figured since I have the rear out I'm thinking about narrowing it to get my 7/16" back on each side. Well you know what happens when car guys start thinking. Now I'm debating if I should just go down to the width of a 65-66 rear. 65-66 57.25" 58.375" If I remove 7/16" per side for a total of ⅞". 69-70 59.25" I assume this rear measurement is housing flange to housing flange. Is that correct? In the attached pictures it shows currently how the car sits. The rear tires are: Rims: 17x10.5 Back Spacing: 6.8" (174mm) Offset: +28mm (1.10") Tires 315/35/17's I'm staying with this size tire at minimum, but will explore going wider if I can. I've also thought about calling Quick Performance and just getting them to do a new housing for me. If I go with the 65-66 width, will my axles work as they are? Can I just have them shortened and resplined if needed? They are 31 spline axles.
  11. Looks great, guess your still out test driving it. LOL
  12. You've got a really good starting.point. Definitely a good looking color.
  13. 70 is what the pictures are from. I got them a couple years back from a gentleman on this forum or the VMF.
  14. Welcome to 69stang, agree with the above. Post some pics when you get a chance.
  15. Congrats nothing beats a quite peaceful state of mind.
