  1. I remember having sudden and complete failure of master cyl in a 69 Javelin back in the day. When that happened I had to jump a curb and drive down a sidewalk to avoid an accident. (Very scary) And on another jalopy I drove when I was young and poor, I Had to rebuild a master cyl when one of two seals went bad and left me with only rear breaks. My pony came with non power breaks. I added power w/front disk. It was well worth the time and money.
  2. I did replace the unit with a Custom Autosound radio that has a ISO plug, so it basically just plugged in with no rewiring. I got the model that doesn't have bluetooth but it has an aux cord witch I ran into the glove box so I can plug in my phone and leave it in there when I play Pandora. I can live without taking calls in the car. If I needed that option I would have payed another $100 and got the upgrade. It looks as close to stock as the retrosound and at this point I'm not going for 'original' look anyway. It's funny how your goals change as your project progresses.
  3. How can I get a look at your Flicker? I'd like to see more of your version of 69 convert.
  4. That's ruby red, a newer Ford color. It's a try coat, I love the way it reflects light in different conditions.
  5. I put a Dynacorn spoiler on my 69 convert and have 6.5 in. of clearance at the center/low point. This is stock springs 302. The valance of the 69 and 70 are listed as different parts so the spoiler may not bolt right-up from one to the other.
  6. My order through a vender on eBay was canceled and I can't get an explanation. Now the item is no longer listed. It must have been a mistake on the listing. So I'm reweighing my options.
  7. I have found a replacement "body" for the Retrosound. It turns out you can buy the radio without the display, bezel, and install kit for about half the cost that I payed for the whole thing originally. Just under $150 with shipping. I'll be able to simply plug in the new one and go. I'll let you all know how this works out when it comes.
  8. I believe he's referring to part #4 Part of it shows through the slotted bolt holes in the door.
  9. Europe might be out of reach but I would let someone with more experience than I take a look. If there is anyone in the N.E. PA area that would be interested , I'm open to that.
  10. The side of the cowl behind the wheel would be color paint but there is a splash shield that covers that area preventing anyone from seeing it. The rest of the wheel well gets blacked out.
  11. To your paint questions, Jim Osborn reproductions inc. sells the assembly manual that will give locations of paint and sound deadener. It also gives assembly instructions. I bought both thinking I would 'restore' my 69 convertible. I changed my plan when I found how unimpressive my car would be if restored. Instead I decided to make it the car I wanted. So I took liberty.
  12. If I was back at that stage I would add a little more support under the filler panel area to avoid flexing in that area I painted my car 4 years ago and the only issue I have seen so far is the seam in this pic. Everything was down to bare mettle, premiered, then seam sealer. The cracks first showed this spring and I'm sure it will only get worse. There is no filler in this area.
  13. It was suggested elsewhere that perhaps a speaker wire went to ground. I checked them and they checked out fine. All of the wiring is as it should be. I'm thinking this failure is an unusual event, in light of the reports other owners have had over the years. If anyone has anything to add before I order a replacement, I would appreciate it.
  14. Here's a closer look, I love the set-up. I can't believe did without PS so long.
  15. No there is no contact with the headers. If you have or are worried about contact you could tether them to the shock tower. As for me, I positioned the hoses, torqueing them away from the exhaust before tightening the fittings
