  1. I actually went with the mgw. I contacted them, and they said they can put an extra bend in their handle to make it easier to reach. They also said that their handle is just a 3/4" round rod, so it's pretty straightforward to fab a custom rod.
  2. Also, I know in a modern mustang it's a relatively straightforward thing to install...but in ours is it, or do you need to drop the transmission to install the short shifter?
  3. When you say that you would have gotten the hurst, did you mean the hurst stick, or the whole hurst short shifter setup? https://www.summitracing.com/parts/fms-m-7210-m Thanks
  4. My car (1970) is in the middle of getting a t5 swap...if I was to put in a short shifter (mgw, pro5.0, steeda), does it make it hard to reach? Do you have to lean forward to put it into gear? I'm 5'8" on a good day. Some accept other brand shifter rods, but mgw, which sounds like it may be the one most favored by modern mustang owners, uses it's own proprietary connection, so you can only use one of their 3 available rods.

    I did. No reply. I was kind of hoping the owner of the site was lurking here in these forums

    Anyone use this? https://customdiykit.com/1969-70-mustang-center-console-build-kit-diy-build-your-own-custom-console.php Looks good, but it doesn't seem to exist on ebay currently...looks like someone is paying for this website, but maybe no longer selling it?
  7. How did this work for you? I was looking at the same model. I need to add a tach, so I was thinking about using this to delete the crappy aftermarket radio currently in my car: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Universal-DIN-Gauge-Pod-52mm-2-1-16-double-pod-radio-mount-/133121192971?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l49286&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0 Then I'd put a 52mm tach in the opening closest to the driver, and cover the other opening with the little remote from the mc900b...but I wasn't sure if that remote was to big vertically to fit there?
  8. Any ide if the pod can be hot glued to the dash, at the rear of the pod?
  9. Gotcha. Thanks. Back to the drawing board. Trying to find a good option to add a tach. I don't like a hood tach for this car, and don't feel like spending another 800 for a full gauge cluster.
  10. 70, yes. The diameter of whatever the rallypac would need to encircle, about 2 inches from the gauge cluster.
  11. There's a guy on eBay who makes empty rally paks for 65-66...https://www.ebay.com/itm/Custom-Low-Profile-Rally-Pac-for-1965-1966-Mustang-/184865262755?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l49286&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0 He says he can make for a 70 (I assume 69 is the same) if he has measurements of the steering column about 2 inches from / in front of the instrument cluster. My car is with the mechanic...i was hoping someone could take the measurement for me.
  12. Pretty sure the 69 fairlane is same as 67 to 70 mustang, and the later fairlane is same as 71 to 73 mustang. Anyone do the mustang steve or similar rear disc adapters? Lets you use 94 mustang cobra discs on the rear. I'm thinking that rather than spending money getting the rear drums working, might make more sense to just put discs on it.
  13. sounds great. I just found a guy selling a 69 fairlane 9 inch...says it needs to be "cleaned up", but I think I'm going with that, if he doesn't sell it before I can pick it up. Just need to figure out how to "clean" it up. Maybe pressure washer, wire brush, and paint?
  14. More great info. Thanks. I had read that if you don't do something about the offset, you "may" have issues if passengers are in the back seat, or if you have things in the trunk, with bumping / rubbing of the rear end into the floor pans (I think...I've read so many threads on this that things are getting jumbled together at this point). Vicfreg, just noticed you're in Charlotte...bought my car from a guy in Haw River, not too too far from you. He's currently doing the work on it (hopefully). I'm in Raleigh.
  15. how's highway driving with the 3.73? Seems like to get the limited slip, it has to be the 3.73...I'd rather have a lower gear, for better highway driving and better mpg...I figure with a 393, it's going to be plenty quick even with a 3.27...but it seems like the 3.27 and 3.55 don't have lsd.
