  1. Is the harness coming through this hole in the radiator support? It should be if it ain't. I can't really tell.
  2. Can you provide more detail of your light bucket repair? Your repair looks great. I have a crack in the lower pan tab on one and a broke-out lower grill panel bolt hole on the other and looking for a good way to repair them.
  3. If the CVR uses the same connector as a 9V battery, maybe try https://www.parts-express.com/. I have some 9V battery connectors that have about 3 inches of wire attached. I think I got them at Parts Express some time ago. Just need butt connectors to attach.
  4. The intake was previously painted with standard engine enamel. I took it to a machine shop to have it stripped, cleaned and inspected so it was down to bare aluminum when I painted it. Flaking over time would be a concern. What is normally used by those who've painted the lifter valley? Is that even still done?
  5. I have an Offenhauser intake for my 351C. I painted the top side with ford blue ceramic engine paint from Eastwood a while back. I was moving some of my parts around and got to thinking. What I was wondering, is there any benefit to coating or painting the bottom side to possibly insulate or otherwise help keep heat transfer to the intake charge minimized? Stock 351C had a sheet metal pan intake gasket but that won't be used in this case and the heat transfer ports are welded shut. Not a big deal, just curious if anyone else has thought about this.
  6. part number under "engine component" in the link above. Cleveland are probably different lengths.
  7. Ridge makes a 69/70 shelby style hood to fit regular 69s & 70s. At least I think he still makes them.
  8. https://arp-bolts.com/kits/make.php?_Make=400&_EngModelID=* Check on ebay or amazon, that's where I got all mine for my cleveland.
  9. Wilwood has brake kits of various sizes for 69 & 70 oem disk spindles. https://www.wilwood.com/BrakeKits/BrakeKitSearch?year=1969&make=Ford&model=Mustang&option=Disc+Brake+Spindle&axle=Front+Kit https://www.wilwood.com/BrakeKits/BrakeKitSearch?year=1970&make=Ford&model=Mustang&option=Disc+Brake+Front+Except+GT350+%26+500&axle=Front+Kit For oem drum spindles https://www.wilwood.com/BrakeKits/BrakeKitSearch?year=1969&make=Ford&model=Mustang&option=Drum+Brake+Front+Spindle&axle=Front+Kit https://www.wilwood.com/BrakeKits/BrakeKitSearch?year=1970&make=Ford&model=Mustang&option=Drum+Brake+Front+Spindle&axle=Front+Kit
  10. Pics of what you're talking about? I don't know of any brackets welded on. There is a flange on each end at the wheel well where it attaches to the fender. There is also a small bracket that bolts to the pan and bumper.
  11. Wet sanded with 320 grit & primed. Will wet sand this with 400 grit. If its smooth and flawless I'll shoot it with POR15 or KBS rust seal to give the fiberglass some additional protection from chips then final prime.
  12. Thanks but not back surgery, it was actually bladder & prostate. My urologist said if I let it go I would be stuck with a catheter the rest of my life. You don't realize what muscles help with bladder control and what happens when you strain too much and don't have the control you once had. It's a slow road to get that control back but its coming back a little at a time. Sorry if that's TMI for any of you.
  13. Started back on wet sanding the lower nose. First time this year I've been able to do anything on the car. Had minor surgery back in March, still recovering but able to do more now. Also tied up with having the kitchen completely remodeled, plumbing reworked under the slab, electrical rework, new cabinetry, the works. There probably won't be much progress on the car for a while on anything that will take money to accomplish. I will continue on the things that I can though.
  14. Actual mustang II? At least the crossmember looks to be a factory piece. Hubs are 5 lug though.
