  1. I could have helped but am in Australia.....way too expensive and hard to ship anything long. I am doing the conversion and have all the bits from my conversion. I have a full uncut metal package tray (or whatever you want to call it) as well.
  2. Hi Rich Not sure if this will help. The measurements are in metric.
  3. “A street car that reflects the classic 70’s Transam race cars - a compromise of factory appearance, power vs liveability” To that end 1970 Mach 1 M code Engine 408c with original but refreshed 4V’s. Aim is to look stock but have 450+ Shaker - bought a Scott Cook intake so I can run it Close ratio toploader 3.25 LSD Classic or Vintage Air Stock interior but added factory tach dash and sports deck rear seat, LED dash lights Running gear Shelby UCA drop QA1 shocks lowered as much as I can bare - @ 2” Stock exterior Still unsettled on colour either back to Wimbledon white (original) or change to Calypso Coral as I really like orange as a colour Got the wheels Transam Race Engineering Minilites 17x8 and 17x9.5 with 245/45 and 275/40’s Thats about it. The aim remains tough Road car - I want to drive it around the country a fair bit
  4. My 70 original TBox had the channel. I got a two piece Dynacorn TBox which has the channel in it to replace it.
  5. What did I miss out on....damn I love a good wind up

    Well said
  7. Thanks Kris The pic is helpful as I can see where the flange has been trimmed at an angle to match. Such fun working with repop parts - NOT
  8. Hi all I have a genuine rear valance but have replaced rear quarters and tank drop offs. The valance is a service part that was on the car but was held in place with a couple of tack welds so no idea if the shape has altered. The flange of metal where the quarter and tank drop off join is too long and holds the valance proud of the panel. Neither of the two panels is longer than the other so it’s not like one is the issue. Does the flange just need trimming back? Thanks in advance.

    It’s serious prison time at that. Our State is the only one with a mandatory retirement age of 60. Some want it changed to go on...I’m like F off. Let me get my pension and live a while. I have been in fairly senior roles for the past 12 years so no longer mixing it with the trash - all command level stuff - I have a mate who just finished with 37 years all on the road as a supervisor. Tough gig and he’s a bit broken but he didnt want to leave and is now bored and taken a security job to fill in a few days. He bought a new Mustang instead of an old one which is his mistake!!!

    Sad isn’t it. I am 2nd generation. My Dad didnt want my bro or I to join up but we did. Now big bro has ticked over 39 years whilst I have only done 36. I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone really - even though 95% of people are very supportive and acknowledge the work done. It’s okay at the senior ranks when you are older not having to deal with the shit all day every day but its a tough gig for the young ones.
  11. I was lost without you lot. Thanks to admin/owner for getting it back. Hope everyone is safe in the USA. Looks pretty bad on news media here.
  12. Any trouble adapting the BA backing plate onto the 9” and i assume its a Ute or wagon rear brake setup?
  13. Thanks mate - I am really happy with how it turned out. Just shows what a bit of patience can deliver even for an amateur like me. Amazingly no I didn’t use panel clamps I have tried them in the past and found they dont work that well if there is any curve in the panel join area. I had a couple of grips holding it in position against the wheel house lip and then just used a bit of finger pressure to hold it aligned while I tacked off. Once it was tacked off I let it hang naturally and then did the majority of the weld so it held a more natural position if that makes sense?
  14. About 1mm at max. I find that I get enough penetration and its certainly strong enough a join. To finish I ground it down, used a 2” roloc flap disc to get it low and then hand file finished to the below picture. I think a very thin wipe with filler will be all it takes to have it done.
