    We couldn't get the Archies here in the UK in 1969 so we improvised.
  2. 69-70 Hood Scoop on a Shaker Hood?

    Here's the underside of mine. Original hood and hole, so functioning.
  3. 69-70 Hood Scoop on a Shaker Hood?

    Thanks for the advice. I'll get him to order the standard hood. He's found an original scoop that's been restored, so want need to get that plastic thing from CJs.
  4. 69-70 Hood Scoop on a Shaker Hood?

    Thanks for the info, just wondering if the new hoods from CJs are those dims. The hood is off my mates 1970 Mustang. He's owned the car for 12 year and he's just spent $30,000 getting the engine rebuilt and body resprayed. He finally collected the car last week after 1 years restoration and on the way back it was raining and he spun the car and hit the bank. There is damage to the hood, front fender and a small dent to the rear quarter below the rear fender and that's it. The Luxembourg garage has quoted $7000 for the repair and the insurance company has accepted the claim. Crazy. He wants to upgrade the hood. Here are the photos:
  5. Hi All, Can you please tell me if the Scott Drake Hood Scoop (C9ZZ-16C630-A) will fit on a 69-70 standard shaker hood please? A mate of mine with a 1970 Sportsback is hoping they'll fit.

  8. What did you do to/for your Mustang today?

    Bought an Edelbrock 8092 3/4 spacer. Hopefully will do the trick.

    Ok will give it a go, thanks.
  10. What did you do to/for your Mustang today?

    Trying to fit a Scott Drake oval air cleaner to my Edelbrock Performer, but the spacer they provided is too high. When it's removed it's too low and the base plate looks like it's touching the moving carb components. Does anyone know of a fix or if there's a shallower spacer please?
  11. Santa brought Mustang parts!

    I got a Scott Drake chrome export brace, oval air cleaner and a dixie horn from the wife. Didn't do too bad.

    This is the best looking coupe I've seen.
  15. Removing the shock tower braces

    Thanks for your help. Found an Export Brace locally so will fit in the New Year. For the time being, I'll restore the original ones. The braces came off easy. The black / grey paint is thin and no primer. Using wet and dry to remove the surface rust.
