    69 Vert project

    They are not reproduced for hardtops & verts. Have to find good used or make own. I had to repair the lower part of the left one on mine. Sorry, no finished pics at this time

    1969 Dash Grounding

    Yup, if everything is painted you're not getting good continuity between the lower dash and the body, need some bare metal at those contact points. There's at least 3 places that I can recall where the dash harness grounds to the lower dash

    Why are oil pans so darn expensive?

    I've been looking on ebay for a cheap one to modify. I've found most want almost the same money for a used one as new plus $30 or more in shipping. I have found a new one at a decent price including shipping. I don't really need one, I have 2, one on the engine and an oem version with a sump baffle. Not sure about the quality & fit. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Front-Sump-Black-Oil-Pan-Stock-Capacity-Cleveland-1970-1982-Ford-351C-M-400/223076957692?hash=item33f06c3dfc:g:4xoAAOSwrVRbWhM1:rk:2:pf:0

    Ever want to punch one of these guys ?

    Wow, the idiocy with that guy. I used to work on garbage trucks (Waste Management). Learned mig & stick welding ojt. Currently design 15,000 lb jet engine and gas turbine engine shipping stands and containers with loaded weight at 30,000 lbs +. These are 99% mig welded and tested to 6g of total weight downforce. These carry engines from GE, P&W, RR and other engines & transmissions from Oshkosh. Dude has his head up his arse. Adding the armoring company I used to work for designing armored truck configurations and discreet armor packages for luxury cars. These consisted of mig welded 304SS, Domex and Armox armor plating.

    Happy 50th

    Vic's is a 70, hence his 11/69 date. But yeah, his turns 49.

    Help with idenfifying my Cam

    X2 I've also found the forums and people you've referenced very helpful in the past and also recommend them.

    Tail light tinting?

    I would just like taillight lenses without the stainless trim and without the ridge on the lens for the 3 stainless pieces.

    Mike65's 69 Coupe build

    70 cougars are a good source too for the notchbacks, that's where I got mine.

    Parking light questions

    1. Piece of cake. The square insert can be replaced with a stove nut if stock appearance is desired or any nut of appropriate size. Both can be tacked in place. 2. haven't looked at mine in a long time but I believe it uses an 1157 bulb? If so the pins on the bulb and the slots on the socket are offset so the bulb only goes in one way. If the bulb is spinning in the socket then , assuming the bulb is correct and ok, the socket may be deformed. The socket is crimped on, I think, and would be difficult to replace. I have spare sockets (generic 1157 type) that have prongs on the edge to snap into a hole. Don't know if something like that would work. 3.I've heard of people sandblasting and spraying with some type of Eastwood product. 4. Your call.

    Engine ideas other than Coyote

    X2, more torque than 351W stock to stock comparison. I may be a little biased though. Currently buying parts to go through mine again.

    Summer (of 69) Project

    There's a local window tinting company near me that can do custom graphics. I've talked to them about some custom GT stripes when they tinted the glass in my old 06 mustang. Pricing was reasonable. May be someplace similar near your location.

    Redo of my Mach1 restomod 4.6

    I think I'd have drained & cleaned it and took it somewhere to have someone TIG all the way around on both those bungs. Probably not worth returning anyhow. Best to just fix it. FYI, for leaking flared AN fittings, there are aluminum cone washers somewhere out there to use to seal problem fittings. I have no idea where to get them but I've used them in a previous life.
