    Found two build sheets. Leave or Remove?

    Carefully removed, fully intact. Tucked away in a plastic sleeve with the rest of the paperwork for the car. Thanks for the advice. Fyi to anybody else trying to read a tarred up sheet. A strong light from behind shines through the tar, but not the printing. Great way to read the hidden text.
  2. So... Ummm... Apparently I was doing it wrong after all? (-8
  3. So, old carpet out and what to my wondering eyes should appear? An early Christmas present... Two, count em, two build sheets. So what's the consensus? Leave them here and cover with the new carpet and they stay the way San Jose FOMOCO intended? Or Ultra carefully remove and file away with my records.
  4. The hangers are barbed, so they don't come off easily. But they do come off. Word of advice... The white plastic underneath is old and brittle and barbed, so go slow and try to get things loose with gentle wiggles and some prying.
  5. So... Yah... Heres some pics to help out the next poor schmuck that tries to do this to a 50-year-old coupe. The seat belt covers don't come off. they're held in with the screw on the back. Your only option is to pry the cover back enough to get to screw.
  6. Lol.... Yea, exactly... I can't see the screws! Thanks for the help. I didn't know the plastic came off to get the screw. I guess I'll just keep carefully working off the seatbelt cover. Now to check my laws and see if I can 'accidentally' not reinstall that shoulder belt when I'm done. Thanks all!
  7. Ok, so there's a million posts/youtubes on how to install seat belts, and how to put in headliners - but they all say: "after you've removed your...." My seat belt plastic covers are pretty tight and I don't want to break them taking them off. Is there a trick to removing seat belts? Also - the little hanger hooks. How do they come off? Thanks in advance!

    GT Stripe photo help.

    See if you can take a different photo where the area of the gt stripe is better lit. Right now the lower quarter is shaded and dim and any white strip would have to be atificially dimmed to match and would look odd. Upload one where that lower part is better lit and I'll try to get you one. I'll try with what you have, but it won't represent well
  9. Taken from 1969 Coupe. Original. Snapped off at the assembly when it got stepped on instead of the parking brake pedal. It's still screwed onto its lever. I didn't want to damage it trying to take it off. Any offers?

    Rear mounted antenna location

    Don't think it answers your question... but interesting.... http://anghelrestorations.com/uploads/3/1/7/6/3176630/antennas_v1.1.pdf There is a clickable image in there with clear instructions for shelby antennas though.

    key trouble

    ditto on parasitic draw - easiest thing to check first... like raven says. With everything off pull a battery cable - I use negative out of habit but I don't think it matters - put your meter between the cable and the post and see how much draw there is. At that point, if I see draw, I start pulling fuses to see if the draw stops or not. That, at least, points me at which wiring to start with.

    Maybe I'm the only one on the planet...

    Laughed out loud when I saw this great response.... Can't leave it unanswered... Sauce: https://www.hemmings.com/blog/2013/04/17/hemmings-find-of-the-day-1969-ford-mustang/
  15. Am I the only one who really prefers the look of the 69 coupe over the fastback? Fastbacks get all the attention and all the love and all the money... but man... they're ugggggly. Am I literally the only person on the planet who thinks this way?
