  1. This is the one I drive around, I restored this about 15 years ago
  2. Yeah, really. I will probably take it out some shows, and then at the end of the year I’ll probably drive it a little little bit more.
  3. Trunk is done. Rear seat panels done. Windows in. Top going on.
  4. I also used spacers on my emergency brake, worked out fine I have 8 speakers and a subwoofer. I will get some pics posted
  5. I did this, and I have detail pictures of my installation. I’m traveling right now. I can post them in the next couple days. I used the existing vent enclosures, Sealed the flapper door and the closed position. I built a plywood covering that I screwed over the top of the opening, and inserted my speaker in there, sound clipping, and I sealed it off. If you look back through my 1970 convertible build thread should be pictures in there. May also be pictures in the technical forum Vic
  6. Hey Ersin. I figured you would know this... It is interesting that the '70 Coupes and Convertibles have different rear quarter panels. I always assumed somehow the Convertibles used the Coupe rear quarters and they were modified. I will have to keep my eyes open next time I am at a car show. Vic
  7. Wow. Welcome back. Nice air cleaner set up. The red seats look great. Vic
  8. Dannymac. Nice, car. Nice work, really well done and clean. The body lines are super straight. The car used to have a vinyl top. What color was it? Vic
  9. Wow, cool! The Pharoah car show? Everyone wanted to be a Pharoah... https://youtu.be/PypEDzb5bdU?si=3zl5daZ3PTiFyBmH
  10. GearHead, Thanks. I looked on Amazon and got myself a steamer. I told my wife that she can use it after I am done with my carpet. She was not impressed.......
  11. Ford of the rear wheel, there obviously very different accustom 1969 had a scoop type arrangement on rear quarter
  12. Comparing it to Mike’s picture, the rear quarter and extension book identical, except for the larger side marker light hole on the 1970. Very interesting.
  13. This is an old photo, before the marker light hole was welded:filled in. You can see how that quarter panel line extends into the fender extension. I thought the 1970 fender extensions were different, because of the flat panel, and also that the 1970 tail light Bezel is outside the trunk takes up a lot of room near where the fender extension is. So not sure how they mixed and matched these at the factory during early ‘70 production. I wonder if the smooth quarter panel 1970s have a different fender extension. Great question by Mike…
  14. Yeah, I was just actually looking at some pictures on line and I see that. I was also wondering about the rear quarter panel extensions… they should be different because of the tail light panel differences between 1969 and 1970.?
  15. Hi Mike This is just a result of my design theme for the car. So, personal preference The black front bumper is intentional, as I wanted a blacked out front end, so my bumper, billet grill, and all of the headlight and hood trim is satin black powdercoat. I also did not want any chrome or brightwork below the window line. So you see my mirrors, door handles and lock cylinders are also black. But, I did not want a black rear bumper, so did that body color. Your observation on the rear quarters is interesting. Great question. I don’t see many ‘69 or ‘70 coupes/convertibles at car shows, so will need to do some research on that. My sheet metal is original, except for the hood and trunk lid. My car was built in November of 1969 at the Dearborn plant. So, maybe it does have left over ‘69 rear quarter panels. I also removed the front and rear side marker lights, so it does look much different than stock. And, no emblems, letters, or rocker panel trim on the car. Vic
