  2. New steering wheel opinions

    I'm glad this topic was brought back up! And thank you RPM for laying off the calendar police...lol! I keep going back and forth as to what I want to do with the wheel on my 69 Mach. My wheel is actually in decent shape without cracks. It's a little shinny, polished from hand wear and needs to be textured and painted. I could use a new foam pad and the rim blown horn needs to be replaced. I could probably spend $400 bucks with all the parts and have it looking pretty good, but it's old and in time may crack. And, I really don't like the rim blown horn thing and all the problems that come with it. Many here have had wheels rebuilt and that horn switch still does not function well. At the same time, I am wanting something that looks a lot like my factory wheel. Here's what I have been looking at: https://gtperformance.net/product/14-4337-gt-classic-wood/ I'm thinking about purchasing the wheel and painting the spokes and center horn piece black like my OEM wheel. I can possibly fabricate some aluminum rings to press into the holes in the spokes, as I have a lathe. Thoughts? Also, is anyone familiar with the quality of this product?
  3. What did you do to/for your Mustang today?

    I don't know, I threw a string trimmer the other day....damn hard starting/no starting Stihl. Not the first time I've thrown it either. I can throw that thing fifteen yards and clear the neighbors six foot privacy fence.
  4. ~ 1969 windshield depth .......

    Before I pulled my windshield, I took a pair of vernier calipers and measured the depth from the outside face of the windshield to the the metal base it rests on. That number was .440". Good luck.

  7. Wear those safty glasses!!

    Hey Ridge, I check eyes for a living and if you took a pretty good blow to that eye, you may have done some damage, regardless of how it feels now or how you are seeing. You really should have it checked out, buddy!
  8. 1969 Door Tag

    Thanks! Relatively new here, ey? Already contributing too. Good to have you here.
  9. 1969 Door Tag

    Thanks, but it's going out to be media blasted. Was thinking about removing it before it goes off for the process. I suppose I could tape it up real good and speak to the people on this.
  10. 1969 Door Tag

    Was thinking about this the other day! What about the VIN tag on the dash?

  12. Meet QUEENIE.... 69 Gulfstream Aqua Build

    Got up extra early yesterday, 5:30 am, with a host of things I wanted to get accomplished on the car. I've got to get this car ready for the rotisserie. First on the agenda was to fix the rear floor pans, as they were cracked out from where my exhaust was hung. My car was originally a single exhaust car, but I had the Midas Touch performed on it all those years ago and they attached the exhaust to the seat belt mount and a bracket that secures the rear brake line. The cracks you see are the result of their work. Both sides had cracks. I drilled out the ends of the cracks and welded the cracks secure. I did not know this but duel exhaust equipped cars received reinforcement back here. I found the reinforcement pans at Classic Tube and welded them in. I also purchased the correct dual exhaust hangers through them as well. These guys sell more than just brake and fuel lines. After addressing the rear pan, I proceeded to weld in the "B" patches for the added shock tower support. I did this a little bit different in that I trimmed down the outer frame support flush, as I do not like the water retention there. This area is sealed now. To finish up, I removed the entire rear end. I was dreading this as I just knew the removal of the rear leafs would be rough. The bolts that secure them rust inside the bushing and often have to be cut out. Lucky me, mine pushed right out with my impact gun. I had forgotten how heavy that 3rd member is. About busted my hand in the roll over maneuver to set it down gently. All in all a good day. Finished up at 2:00 with no blood or tears and just a little sweat. Hopefully, I can get the rotisserie built next week and shortly thereafter off to the media blaster.
  13. Anyone know this bozo?

    That topic starter is a hoot....we all seem to want to read about the trash on people....LOL! It is intriguing how life seems to take us down certain paths. Wonderful read! Congrats!!!
  14. 1970 Convertible Restoration

    The best looking convertible that I've ever seen, was a 69 Mustang convertible done up Mach 1 style. The guy did some body work to the rear trunk area to give it that fastback rear look. Car had a shaker, blacked out hood, front spoiler, hood pins, etc. It was very professionally done and it was gorgeous! Look forward to seeing your project come together.
  15. What did you do to/for your Mustang today?

    And jeez Mike, I don't know how you do it! I've got a 24'x26' shop with an upstairs and I'm crying because it ain't big enough. I'm just a big ole cry baby!!!
