  1. The way I did it on my 69 Coupe if you look at the underside of the hood there is a recess for the hood pins about the size of the round trim plate that screws to the top of the hood. I drilled in the center of that recess from the underside, closed the hood then marked the center of the hole in the hood on the radiator support & then drilled the holes in the radiator support for the pins & then install them. Here is a video that could help. Installing New Hood Pins | Mustang Mach 1 (youtube.com)
  2. Randy, I took the measurements from the passenger's side of a Ford original front valance. Looking at the side of the valance the top of the sidelight hole is 2 1/2" down from the top of the valance where it bolts to the bottom of the fender, putting the tape measure on the underside edge of the valance next to where the frame support bracket bolts to the bottom & wrapping the tape measure around the bottom of the valance of the sidelight hole is 7" from the edge. The sidelight hole is 1 1/2" high, 2 3/4" long & the front edge of it is in line with the small square hole that is for the "L" bracket that bolts to the front bumper. The mounting hole for the chrome trim that goes through the valance to hold the sidelight in has 2 studs on it, the stud that is closest to the wheel opening of the valance is 1 7/8" forward of the wheel opening. I would post a pic but the site will not allow me to post a pic. If you need a pic give me your e mail & I will e mails some to you of whatever you need.
  3. Thanks RPM & Vic. Vic, I already pulled the wire out of the AAW under hood harness & hooked it up.
  4. I need a starter, & a battery then I will try to get it started, hopefully later this year. I have most of the parts to put it together, I also need a dash top & gauges.
  5. I spent some time in the garage even with the heat, I installed a 18" 3 speed fan to keep the air moving. I have decided to go a different direction with my build. I installed a carb spacer & a Summit 600cfm carb, mechanical fuel pump, fuel line from the pump to the carb, crank pulley, pulley spacer, radiator, upper & lower radiator hoses. I was going to post some pics but the site will not let me.
  6. Have you given any thought to using 3M Moulding tape in place of the studs. Auto makers use the tape for all the fender emblems on newer vehicles.

  7. I went to the show in Greensboro, NC last weekend & I was disappointed at the amount or lack of classic Mustangs that were there. Out of the 110 vehicles that were there, about 30% were classic Mustangs, old Fords or trucks, the rest were newer Mustangs. We attended a show at a Ford dealership in Roanoke, Va last month that was a way better mix of old & new. I am starting to favor cruise-ins more than shows.
  8. Good for you Robotman for doing this for your friend. I am down near Martinsville if you need any help with this I would be happy to assist you if needed.
  9. Yes. The engine was built with a water pump that had the outlet on the driver's side, but my radiator has the inlet on the passenger's side so I switched the to the proper water pump & the crank pulley that I had would not fit with the proper water pump.
  10. Got the new water pump & the alternator installed. Ordered a new crankshaft pulley & spacer.
  11. Finally got all the fuel lines installed & secured.
  12. Nice work Pete, it is looking good.
  13. Yesterday I started installing the new fuel lines & found I have the wrong size fittings at the fuel filter. Ordered new fittings from Summit Racing.
  14. For anyone that is interested there is a large all Ford/Mustang show in Greensboro, N.C. in The Home Depot parking lot on Saturday June 15th. It is at 4425 W. Wendover Ave, Greensboro. My wife & I went to the show in 2022 & it was a great show. We will be there again this year. (20+) 39th Annual Mustang and Ford Powered Show | Facebook
  15. Looking good Vic. Before you know it you will be out driving it.

    Thanks ben. If you need any help with the spam posts, I would be happy to help.
  17. Welcome to the forum. I cannot help you with any pics since my 69 Coupe is still apart. IIRC the rail that retains the weatherstripping that runs from the "A" pillar to the sail panel holds the weatherstripping for the door & the quarter windows. The weatherstripping fits into it.
  18. I have the book with the red cover & I think it is just a rehash of the Osborn manuals.
  19. It is looking very good Vic. Why is the front bumper black & the rear bumper body color, wouldn't it look better with the front bumper body color? Looks like you 70 has 69 Quarter panels. I thought the70 quarter panels were smooth without the horizontal ridge. I had (many years ago) a 70 Coupe & the panels were smooth, & I am on my 2nd 69 Coupe & they both have the horizontal ridge like yours.
  20. Those are the same ones I have to install on my 69 Coupe.
  21. Randy if you would like I could go out to the shop & measure my 69 Coupe if you would like.
  22. When I acquired my 69 Coupe many years ago it was missing most of the f/e sheet metal. Over the years I have bought all the stuff including the stainless trim used original Ford stuff so it should fit.
  23. It is 8:10am here in southwestern Va & it is good to see the site back up again. I missed it last month when it was down for most of the month.
  24. Are you using the spoiler brackets that mount under the trunk lid? Mustang Spoiler Bracket Rear Mounts Under Deck Lid 1969-1970 (cjponyparts.com)
