  1. I took and painted a hard piece of rubber with chrome paint and rolled the edges in it to keep from overlapping the sides like a brush would do. Most of the chrome was still there I just had to touch up a few edges.
  2. Mike and I finished restoring the 2 outer AC vents today. Turned out nice. Drilled out the stakes and replaced with small machine screws. Will be able to service in the future. Was able to refresh the felt inside and the louvres now hold and turn nicely.
  3. There is a nice write up on restoring the column and all the parts you might need to replace at http://fixingthetruckagain.blogspot.com/2016/12/rebuilding-1969-mustang-non-tilt.html. Typically all of the foam seals need to be ordered and maybe the main bearing. I was able to reuse mine. I also replaced the plastic bearing. Be careful during disassembly as one of the plastic bearings is not currently made as a reproduction that I know of.

  5. Mike and I finished restoration of the steering column. Forgot how complicated and aggravating that reassembly can be! But we got it.
  6. Thanks for looking out for me! It’s all about the details in these giant 3D puzzles!
  7. It is the length called out in the assembly manual and the same as I previously used on my other sons car. Probably looks longer due to angle of picture.
  8. Need to pick out some 3 point harness seat belts for my sons 69 Mach rebuild. I have moved the seats back almost 3” including the lower rocker and tunnel attachment points. I know there have been many discussions in older threads on this topic but I am hoping to get the latest experiences and advice. I was not that happy with the seat belts I used on my oldest sons car as the quality of the retractable unit was poor and they were too short for big guys like me. When latched, I cannot reach forward to the dash controls. Thanks in advance for your help. Rick
  9. Not sure we are going to need the front seats!
  10. Making great progress on the engine. Will be ready to drop in soon!
  11. Can never hurt to have that running with that engine looking over my son!
  12. Things are getting intense! We rolled the motor out and started final assembly. Will not be long before dropping the motor in!
