    50th birthday thread

    Happy 50th darlin! Born on January 22, 1969 in Milpitas Ca. A pic of her as I'm trying to figure out why she keeps destroying rear main seals.
  2. Welcome back! Cool truck. And, well, Mustang also :)
  3. Kudos! Looks like a fun time was had by all.

    Modified stock UCA for more caster

    Smart mod, and not too terribly difficult. Real nice fab work. On my tube arms I moved upper bj back 1/2 inch, and the lower bj forward 1/2 inch. Did you ever give it a thought to install screw in ball joint sleeves? With them you're able to run the wheel closer to the ball joint. On a related note, the closer you get the caster angle to the SAI (steering axis inclination) the flatter your tire patch is during turning. Our Mustangs have 8° SAI.

    Driveline Angles

    My thoughts are it wouldn't have bothered me a bit.

    Rusty crank

    Have the shop look at it and make a recommendation. Sometimes polishing can clean up surfaces mere mortals like us think is toast.

    Photo needed of installed 69 Fender Extension

    Every original paint mustang headlight bucket I've seen had the high beam housing painted black. But it's your car, do what you want. Unless you're a concours snob :)

    Modifying Harbor Freight's 20 gal. Parts Washer

    Thanks Terry! That took some time, I take it you're retired.
  9. Man, if that was a quick sketch I'd love to see you take your time!

    69-70 Hood catch

    Or worse. In my defense, at the time I couldn't get the pic to enlarge on my phone.

    Photo needed of installed 69 Fender Extension

    Can ya post a pic of your fender extension/ headlight bucket? The inner light mounting area behind the light on mine was painted black, not the body color.

    Ever want to punch one of these guys ?

    I was hoping I wouldn't have to explain it. :)

    Fastback inner rockers

    Hey Terry, I can't remember if you were considering doing the convertible seat riser or not, and I'm too lazy to read the thread again. Here's a tip of you are going to add the one piece seat riser. All of the one piece risers are 1" taller than the individual seat risers, which limits the head room for some folks. This is why I spliced in the one piece hump onto my stock st risers. It's kind of a pain as the inner seat rails are fighting for the same space, which makes the inner seat belt bolt a tight fit.
