    Fastback inner rockers

    I have only replaced an inner rocker in my 73 vert. It was a lot of work and a lot of spot welds. They were not from Dynacorn and were three pieces welded together. On a 73 vert you have to use coupe/fastback floors which required modification to the lip on the outer edge. I am now replacing the floor pan in my 70 Mach and was planning to use SFCs, but now you have me thinking. Look forward to following this thread closely.

    69 mach1 Wheel and tire size

    The 2004 mach1 rims look great in the rear. What size are the tires and the front rims and backspacing? Is it a stock 9 inch axle? Did you have to roll the wheel lips? Thanks, Rich

    OKay. I sent an email describing the problem to whoever monitors the "Contact Us" emails. Whoever is hosting the side should be providing some level of support as defined in the SLA. Assuming there is an SLA. Sorry for momentarily hijacking this thread.

    Bob, 2,300 rpms at 80mph sounds perfect. What your final gear ratio on your AOD?

    I have the same password issue. If the admin does come along and fix yours, tell to fix mine too.

    Some of the sheetmetal just arrived. Decided to go with Dynacorn's "Weldthru Primer" version. Still waiting on a few more on back order, then I can get started. We will see how well it fits. Already had a NOS OEM RH inner fender apron.

    My new 1970 M-Code Mach 1 Project

    Bob, I plan on installing an Eaton TrueTrac anti-slip third member with 3.50 or 3.70 gears with a Tremec TKO-600 5 spd. As far as rims and tires, going with a staggered setup. Probably an aluminum slot or Magnum 500 wheel between 15 and 17 inch. Like to keep it looking close to original but with a more modern tire. Rich

    Disassembled and cleaned up the dash gauges and clock.

    Thanks for your reply. Should there be a seat mount on both sides or just one as it is in my car?

    A good cleaning and some Vermillion vinyl die and the back seats look pretty good. Unfortunately, the fronts seats are too far gone, so I'll be giving TMI a call to get front replacements.

    Looks like I might be missing a mounting bracket on the passenger side. The driver's side has it but not the other Circled in green. Can someone tell me if it missing and what these two mounting brackets are for?

    Apparently, Ford would spray black on the tail panel around the filler tube and inner tail lamp areas to eliminate the body color from showing thru around the Mach 1 tail panel trim. Did Ford paint the Mach 1 stripe on the rear from the factory as it appears below or was it tape?

    Going "mostly" original with the interior and exterior in appearance, .... The previous owner had butchered the rear inner quarter panels by cutting speaker holes, but that was about all that was wrong with them. So I decided to repair them instead of replacing with repro. Also finished up on the Mach 1 rocker moldings. They needed stud repair and bright-work dent repair. Painted them a dark charcoal gray rather than the stock dark argent. We will see if my stud repair method holds once I install them.
