    3pt Belts for 70 FB

    I am 100% behind this brand - https://www.morrisclassic.com. I met the owner personally and can say his products are top quality. I have them in my 69. I have the Retrobelt (bought them before I found Morris) in my 1964 Mustang and was NOT impressed. Basically the same price, but no comparison in quality

    1970 Convertible Restoration

    Its great to see this project continue to progress!
  3. So as I begin to actually put some miles on the car, the front has developed a bad squeak coming from the lower control arm. The previous owner had the front end rebuilt. All parts appear to be new. Since the pivot on the lower control arm cannot be lubricated, could it be something like the spring perch? Any thoughts, ideas or solutions? If the general thought is the spring perch, should I make the upgrade with the needle-bearing version?

    Thanks I have been driving it a few days a week to work out all the bugs. New projects have cropped up.

    Mike65's 69 Coupe build

    My eventual goal is to upgrade to bolt in glass. How/where did you find all the parts?

    so if you want to use this bezel https://www.cjponyparts.com/interior-remote-mirror-bezel-1969/p/ME2B/ You need this mirror https://www.cjponyparts.com/mirror-racing-driver-side-pre-2-24-1969/p/ME32L/ NOT THIS ONE - FYI they have since added in the text not to use the bezel above https://www.cjponyparts.com/mirror-racing-driver-side-after-2-25-1969-1970/p/ME4L/

    I completed one of the doors. The other side will have to wait until the glass is aligned properly. This had its own challenges: missing hardware on the door, having fun with water shield and door putty, which way the door panel clips go, and the remote mirror install. FYI if you plan on upgrading to the racing mirrors, you have 2 choices. The one pictured below and the other style with the chrome inset bezel. I didn't realized I purchased the "wrong" mirrors so I had to modify the door panel. The door panel has a punch out for the inset bezel style. The racing mirrors will have the controls WITHOUT an L shaped bend.

    Now What?!

    SUCCESS! I did the hot soapy water trick and was able to rip it out. So I then put the new one in hot soapy water, coated it with the AGS BK4 Brake Lubricant (and the channel)and was able to muscle it on. I believe my success this time is that I installed the channel unto the window first, then put on the weatherstripping.

    The seats are Corbeau Sport seats with seat tracks. I am really pleased with them. I had a budget for the interior and these fit the bill. I highly recommend if you need new seat belts to get a set from https://www.morrisclassic.com and stay away from RetroBelt. FYI on installing them. The frame bolts to the floor and the seat tracks bolt to the seat. You will need to buy bolts for the tracks. I got grade 8 - 5/16 x 1.5 (18 thread) bolts with washers and nuts to hold the bolts to the frame. Then used the original seat nuts to secure it to the floor. https://www.cjponyparts.com/corbeau-seat-reclining-sport-seat-pair/p/SEAT9-V/ https://www.cjponyparts.com/corbeau-seat-track-1965-1970/p/CSB2/

    WD40 was/is a no-go. That's how I got into this situation. I had success with the other side using AGS BK4 Brake Lubricant. The weatherstripping that this point is trash so I am more concerned about getting it off without damaging it

    My first time installing carpet in a vehicle. Look me all day to install carpet, kick panels, seats and seat belts. I have to work on the dimmer switch hole to move the carpet dow a little bit to join with the other piece. I'll take better pics when the weather clears up.

    Now What?!

    Looking for the collective wisdom on how to fix the problem. This weekend I made a lot of progress on finishing the car. One of those things that I tried to install was a complete failure and now I am stuck. I got a new door glass weatherstrip channel for the passenger side and tried to install the weatherstrip and got about 3/4 of the way and it got stuck. Now I need to get it out of the channel without damaging/crushing it. It is stuck, really stuck... Recommendations? Should I try to put it in the freezer to "shrink" the rubber, then clamp (with soft inserts) and drive it out with a screwdriver? One other thing. The cable for the driver mirror adjustment. How do I keep it from getting caught by the window channel?

    Help Needed for Door Glass Weatherstrip Channel

    Thanks I forgot about this gem. Should be standard "reading" for 1969-70 mustang owners
