    Hood Hinge Mounting Nuts

    Actually not much holding one of these nuts in place ,they are just swedged in . If you have ever had a hood blow off you will know why they need to be welded ,its a real thrill

    Hood Hinge Mounting Nuts

    That is normal ,weld the nut back in place ,if it is a real loose fit you can somtimes knock the open back in place good enough to weld the nut in

    Ever want to punch one of these guys ?

    So on face book ...i know its face book . Someone is asking about the dynacorn bodies ,i chime in and tell him if you want a fast back why not build your own from a coupe and save your self some money and extra work straightening up a dynacorn body . This guy jumps in and tells me i am going to kill someone building these conversions welding them to gether with a mig instead of pinch welding ,he is a metalergist and he knows better. Well i do a search for BAR OF CALIFORNIA and find one of the guys from BAR has written a book on the subject of welding automitive bodys ,here is a small screen shot from a long page

    Since i have been in body repair for 40 years and worked at several repair shops when they need work done on a mustang ,i approved this conversion . Piss ant still wont admit he is building the new bodies ,also will not deny . Build your own conversion ,they cant sell you a body as cheap and maybe not as good as you can build. And you have a vin and a title so no dmv problems

    This friggen idiot is still at it ,trolls every post i make ,i am positive he has somthing to do with these new repop bodies . I used Dynacorn hood hinges on a buddies 67 and posted how well the fit and worked ad that set him off on factory parts for concourse cars ...i am not building a friggen concourse car and neither is my friend . By the way ,these hinges are tight.

    WTB Trap Door Upper Trim Brackets & Clips

    Virginia mustang lists tje clips but they are expensive. I am pretty sure National parts shows the clips by them selves

    Flooding in Strathmore

    Last night the canal broke in town and flooded most of the town ,the town is under evacuation this morning . We are lucky and live on the other side of the canal so it didnt get to us . However ,the neighbors built up their property and flooded us out pretty bad any way ,county said there is nothing we can do about it but sue them

    69 Fastback medallions

    I found several cars that have never been apart that had screws instead of the pins ,dont know if they broke off at the factory or what ,i figure this was fords quick fix ,it works just as well as the pins did

    69 Fastback medallions

    It somtimes takes a block of wood and hit upward on the rim to get them off . They lock on the same way as the window molding clips do and they lock on very well
  17. I have a passenger side ,should have had the other one also but i cant find it
  18. I have one ,not sure what side ,i would have to look

    Seam Sealer

    The big gaps were just dum dum putty . I use 3M tan seam sealer ,it looks just like the factory sealer and works very well on bare metal or primer,i use it on bare metal then epoxy prime everything

    ‘69 Folddown Deck Chrome Strip Wanted

    Yep ,for some reason Ford did not use this piece of trim on the 69 70 ,but the 65 -68 does fit ,they are the same back seats 65 -70 with only slight differences inthe trim

    Hood Hinge Captive Nuts

    Weld it ,i weld them all with a good tack weld or tbey will loosen up . Keep the hinges lubed and it will not be a problem ,this is a weak point on all mustangs
