  1. Thanks fellas. I had thought that seeing the gap with the tail lights in might be difficult. Thanks for that input and photos, jmlay. As Ridge Runner noted, I may bump it a bit.
  2. I've been doing some panel mock up and gap evaluation on my car before paint and question the fit up of my rear qtr end caps as they run across the tail panel. The rear quarters are OEM as are the end caps. I replaced the tail panel with a high end NPD part that was Ford tooling and it went in nicely but now I'm not sure about how the end caps are to fit against that tail panel. Mine are not uniform with a gap larger at the bottom than at the top.... see pics. Can I get pics of how these fit on your cars?
  3. WOW! That is some incredible work there, Ridge Runner!
  4. In total agreement with this! Pull yours, put it away, and build off a newer and better set up.
  5. Man, that stinks! Sorry Ridge.......
  6. Yeah, that's just about how my luck goes too! Given a 50/50 chance at anything, I might get lucky 2 out of 10 times....arghhhh! Meh....just as well. I need to learn to work these complex type of patch panels. Thanks Ed. Thanks for the input friends.
  7. If it's not too much trouble, I'd be interested in that piece, Ed. Can you cut it out? How much? PM me if need be. Thanks, John
  8. Hey friends, I've got to do a rust repair job on my driver's side door and either need to fabricate a patch or weld in a good piece. See picture below. From what I can tell, nobody stamps this piece out. If they do, I sure can't find it. Before I go seriously taxing my limited metal work skills, wondering if any of you have a scrap door that this piece can be cut out of? Along similar lines, after the door is repaired, and without cutting it open, how can I best treat the door to limit future issues like this? Lastly, pictured is the inside of one of my doors. It has a coating on the door skin that is about an 1/16" that is flaking off and exposing the underlying metal in some areas. In some areas it's cracked. I thought it might scrap right out but it does not. It's a very hard substance and I'm certain it was put on when the car was built. I see this as potential for some serious rust problems in the future if I do not address it. Thoughts and advise much appreciated.
  9. I totally agree! In fact, I personally think it's the best looking body style ever produced by any of the big three.
  10. WOW! That's a major life change! Good for you, Mike!!! I don't know how you were working at of that single car garage, so the new shop will be great. I think eventually you'll find it too small though....LOL! Can never build them big enough! And while I didn't include it in my initial post above as a side track project, I had a piece of rental property that a renter literally destroyed. Took me 14 mo working by myself to fix that house up in order to put it on the market for sale. I literally replaced everything in that house such that I would live in it. Almost didn't want to sell it when I was done but no way I was getting back into the rental business. People trashed my home and left owing me three months rent. I can't believe people sometimes. Never again!
  11. Yes, if you look in my above posted pictures, you'll see it on the rear qtr. There are three per endcap, I left that particular one off, as my endcap was protruding outward and away from the panel. Seemed to fit better without it. I have some adjusting to do.
  12. Hey friends, regarding the qtr panel upper end caps, is there a rubber seal that goes in the joint of these like the one in the head light buckets? Also, in fit up tonight I noticed how poorly these align. These are original to the car and I don't recall them being this way. I know Ford didn't put a lot of effort in body gaps and such but I can't leave it this way. Seems I read or say a video sometime back on using fishing line and body filler to clean up the look. I've looked and am not finding it. Anybody familiar with this?
  13. My gosh, the Falcon is beautiful too! You don't do anything half-A, man. You still have the Mach?
