  1. Its easiest and more accurate if you remove the driveshaft. Stick the magnetic angle gauge on the vertical face of the transmission output shaft, and then put the gauge across the flats of the rearend's yoke. Make sure the widest part of the yoke is vertical. I went through this when doing my T56 trans conversion. As noted above, jack or jackstand can skew your measurements so you must make sure the suspension in the front and rear is loaded evenly and its raised in even amounts (use ramps preferably)
  2. Excellent job Bigmal! Definitely not too difficult once you get it all planned out.
  3. Excellent choice on the suspension upgrades! Some day I hope to do the same. As you know we have twin cars with the same wheel and tire package. I've been mulling the MTF minitub as well but may just pie-cut and reweld the area where the tire rubs on the front inside wheelwell to get me by until the suspension upgrades. Keep us in the loop on how the install goes! Regarding the 7/16" for Vintage Venom, one thing you may consider is swapping out the VV bracket and spacer for the Mustang Steve brackets. Those have a 2 piece offset caliper bracket, which avoids the need for the 7/16" spacer for caliper alignment. You'd be $200 into those brackets, which has got to be easier than shortening your axles and tubes (plus pulling all of that and getting it to a shop).
  4. Bigmal the SN95 mirrors just snap onto the bases, so just press them on. I havent had my clips break and I had them on and off numerous times
  5. Crap, just realized someone brought this post up from the dead. Well, hopefully you figured it out after 3 years Raven! LOL
  6. I have one that I pulled from my mach recently that I took pics of for you. If you need any others let me know. There is a small notch on the back of the bezel, which should be replicated in the dash hole. That keeps the alignment of the light and prevents it from spinning. There are also the fingers that you see, which when you push the bezel through the dash those fingers that get compressed when going through the hole then expand and prevent the bezel from separating from the dash. Hope this makes sense. I also took a pic of the relay, which mounts to the turn signal relay stack. The power bullet connector connects to the accessory 3-bullet wire on the fuse box.
  7. Mystang, what specs were your car aligned to? The issues you describe sound more like an alignment issue but I could be wrong. Opentracker has some good spec recommendations: https://opentrackerracing.com/technical/
  8. Budget? One of the better ones out there: http://www.streetortrack.com/Street-or-Track-Front-Coilover-System-pr-24491.html
  9. The mirror base still has the tabs on the sides and they hold quite well. I have to flex the base in order to remove it. Will know more once I get the mirror glass installed and hit a few Illinois pot holes :)
  10. Pic of the switch from an early 2000 ford (F150/Mustang/etc), which I also have an aluminum/chrome knob and bezel that I may still add on since the original knob and bezel was chrome.
  11. No problem! These motors are also the same as the Fox body mustang's, but dont have the detachable plastic mirror backing. It is instead plastic riveted/fused. I found out the SN95 mustang's use the same mirror motor for either side, which caused initial headache with the switch I used which had specific LH/RH motors. I was getting the LH motor going down when I was pressing up on the switch. Swapping the wires around fixed that!
  12. Passenger side. I cut down the existing lower tab due to the extra thickness of the motors, and then re-tapped it. Epoxied tabs to the roof of the housing, and used a flat plate for the bracket to mount the motors to. Another tip, look into the early 2000 ford mirror switch. With a little enlarging of the mustang deluxe door panel mirror hole, the switch looks like it was made to be there!
  13. Pictures of my drivers mirror. Not the same motors you are using, but may provide some ideas to help you. The SN95 motors have a removable plastic backing that snap off the motors (the black plate shown in the last picture). I trimmed it down to the size of our mirrors. My mirror glass is currently at the glass place being cut.
  14. Don't be afraid to epoxy tabs onto the inside of the mirror housing. I'm wrapping up my electric mirror mods using SN95 mustang motors, and used bent sheet metal tabs epoxied to help stiffen up the mounting plate.
  15. I could be wrong, but pretty sure the 70 mustang didn't have a door ajar warning (only cougar). The 3-wire switch is on cars with the Convenience Group Option and is only the passenger side switch, and it operates the seat back release solenoids when you open the door. It was so you didn't have to press the lever to push the seatback forward. Assuming your car is assembled, there will be solenoids and wiring on your seats (orange and black wires).
