  1. The posts on my car are 7 3/4" from the front edge of the decklid and 2 7/8" from the outside edge to the post. I used the spoiler brackets that bolt to the hinge bolts on the underside of the decklid and drilled through from the bottom.
  2. I also love grabber green, I almost went with grabber green on my project then ended up going with grabber blue instead at the last min. I ended up seeing a grabber blue boss 302 at a local car show and that was what changed my mind. Looking great, keep thie pics coming.
  3. Got a pair of these left over if somebody needs them. Shoot me an offer.
  4. These measurements would probably have a little variation because the gas tank is not positioned in the center. If your measuring from the gas tank flanges then youd be in different spots on the filler panel because it has a slight curve to it which would give you some variation side to side. The tank is slightly to the left hand side so the measurement on the right would be slightly bigger than left side.
  5. Put the seals in and put them on the car and tighten them up. Get them as close as you can then smear some filler over both the extension and fender and block sand them while they are still bolted up. Loosen the nuts and then bang them with your hand and it will start cracking where the seam is. Take them off and tidy up the edges on both the extensions and quarter and youll end up with a perfect fitting extension. Of course this only applies if you are doing bodywork on the car. If you are just adding new extensions them you will probably just have to make do with how they fit. Even originals don't fit that great.
  6. No rush, whenever you can. Im in MN.
  7. Anybody have a spare heater blower motor wheel. I started rebuilding my heater today and found that the wheel is junk.
  8. Not sure if its still on but there was a full trap door surround on ebay not that long ago. I was going to buy it but I ended up getting a full new one from dynacorn.
  9. As everybody else has said, no bracing required. Ive done quite a few full floors including my own a couple of months ago. Never had a problem with any of them moving around as long as the rest is pretty solid, go for it.
  10. As everybody else has said, it was missed. Glad its back.:punk:
  11. Cool, thanks guys. I will do them in a gloss white I think, ill just rattle can them.
  12. Im converting my car to power disk brakes from a manual drum brake car. I got my brake kit a while ago and it came with a pedal. Now I have to move the pedal pivot point which is the hole high up on the pedal assembly, ok I got that. Im also making this car a manual from an auto, so ive been buying parts (clutch related) to do this. With the new power brake pedal bolted into the new pivot point (higher up) that seems to be where the clutch spring bracket goes. Im a missing something here? Do you use a different pedal for power brakes with a manual tranny so it doesn't interfere with the clutch spring bracket?
  13. I should have mentioned that this is on a 70. These look to be original and look like the lenses have never been taken off. I opened them up and they are painted white inside.
  14. Just curious if anybody else has done this and what paint did you use on the inside for the white paint. Ive already got the outsides done, went with eastwoods silver cad.
  15. I bought PGW glass for mine and it seems to fit really well, im happy with it.
  16. Yeah its a lot or work to get all those gaps on the rear looking nice, there are so many to take care of. Most cars ive seen never line up good. Yours are spot on, I built my car around the deck lid so mine should be spot on also lol.
  17. Looking really good. I like the trim black finish that looks great. All the gaps on the rear are looking great also, thanks for the update. Ive followed your build for a while now. Keep the progress coming.

  19. 3M Body Schutz part number 08864. I use this all the time at work, just did a 67 Shelby gt 500 and used this product. Just pile it on with your eyes closed and should look pretty close to factory. You will need a body schutz gun to apply.
