    Happy 50th

    Lots of 69's were built in 1968.

    Stripped sheet metal holes

    I did this fix with the cowl vent front edge screws. Easy peasy. As b468 says, the thread portion is larger, but the head remains the same size. On the cowl vent, the holes were big enough that they didn't need to be enlarged. Seems like a pretty simple fix to me.

    1970 Convertible Restoration

    Pretty sure the top tube is a brace.

    Hard to believe I'm 13 years older that my damn car!
  6. Those look real nice, and comfortable! Hmm... Just what I need, another project changing something that doesn't need fixed.

    1970 Fastback

    Your welds are better than the Ford yahoos did on mine in Milpitas Ca back in 69. And none of them have failed, so...

    I'm sure those tweekers sold my stuff for scrap.

    Sub-frame connectors

    Like your one piece headliners Rich, I can't give enough praise to the conv inner rockers I installed on my 69. They really tighten up these old creak boxes. I can't see not adding them to any future Mustang I build. Ymmv.

    Nice work CV. For mounting the brake I made 20 years ago, I clamped the angle iron bed into a vise. I'd have posted pics of it for you, but it along with a couple of transmissions, 2 welding tables and other stuff "walked away" from my garage.

    I too believe you'll be happy with any of those 3, or any out there including home made.

    Necessity is the mother of invention. I was shocked when I was a youngster and saw my dad had cut one end off an end wrench. I thought tools were gold, and shouldn't me messed with.
  14. I can't imagine TCP hasn't had a customer with this issue before. I'm thinking keeping a 9 inch spring, but with lighter weight rating might work. Looking at the TCP website, maybe a 1 or 2" offset adapter would fix the ride height. Or maybe if they made a shorter top shock mounting stud.

    Just a few of many.
