  1. Chris, welcome to the forum. Nice looking 70 Mach you have. Good luck with the 69 Fastback.
  2. On my 69 Coupe that was built in Metuchen, NJ 11/68 it is attached to the top of the r/s rear inner fender apron back by the hood hinge.
  3. I would just replace the u joints with two new ones & call it a day.
  4. That is what I used to do back in the 80's when I had a modified 68 GT Coupe. I would even put the dist cap back on & pop the retainer clips back on to make it look like I did not fool with it. No one would ever think to remove the dist cap to look for a missing rotor.
  5. Welcome to the forum Bruce. I started rebuilding a 69 Coupe 10 years ago that I also acquired as a shell.

    Danno, so glad you are OK.
  7. I am glad the forum is back up & running, I missed this place. I felt like I was going through withdrawl.
  8. I have seen them, & no I have never used them.
  9. It would probably be better to post a pic. I went with adjustable strut rods on my 69 Coupe that eliminate the rubber bushings.
  10. Congrats. Each day I am getting closer to that day too.
  11. Nice work, can't wait to see the finished product.
  12. It was a beautiful day today so I pit the Mustang up on ramps in the rear & jack stands in the front & proceeded to clean off the undercoating where the sub frame connectors are going to weld to. Drivers side, Passengers side,
  13. I used the master series silver on the inner & outer wheel houses on my 69 Coupe. I brushed it on as best as I could reach from the trunk & from the interior with the seat & interior panels out of the way. I wish I had thought to do it when I was replacing the quarter skins.
  14. My work has not been affected by the pandemic either so not much work has been done on the Coupe, but I am planning on starting to run the fuel lines.
  15. rwcstang those are the gauges I want for my 69 Coupe.
  16. Rindelmach1, when you press the button in on the switch, pull out on the knob, & the knob & the shaft should pull out of the switch. When you are pulling the knob if it stops coming out or you feel resistance release the button & then press it again all the time while pulling out on the knob. It should come out.

    Checking in

    Nice pair of Ford's.
  18. NPD sells spray cans but there are paint for soft trim or hard trim, & they also come in light or dark nugget gold. According to the NPD web site the paint color is their custom paint color to match the original Ford paint color. https://www.npdlink.com/product/interior-paint-flexible-spray-dark-nugget-gold-metallic/141630?backurl=search%2Fproducts%3Fsearch_terms%3Dinterior%2Bpaint%26top_parent%3D200001%26year%3D1969&year=1969 https://www.npdlink.com/product/interior-paint-flexible-spray-light-nugget-gold-metallic/141631?backurl=search%2Fproducts%3Fsearch_terms%3Dinterior%2Bpaint%26top_parent%3D200001%26year%3D1969&year=1969 https://www.npdlink.com/product/interior-paint-lacquer-spray-dark-nugget-gold-metallic/107634?backurl=search%2Fproducts%3Fsearch_terms%3Dinterior%2Bpaint%26top_parent%3D200001%26year%3D1969&year=1969 https://www.npdlink.com/product/interior-paint-lacquer-spray-light-nugget-gold-metallic/107635?backurl=search%2Fproducts%3Fsearch_terms%3Dinterior%2Bpaint%26top_parent%3D200001%26year%3D1969&year=1969
  19. Kris, where was your Mustang built, & what was the build date?. Not all Mustangs were painted body color under the vent grille, it depends what model Mustang, when during the year it was built, & at which assembly plant it was built in whether it was black, or body color. I am repainting my Coupe the way it was originally done at the factory. Mine was painted yellow & it was built on 11/26/68 in Metuchen, NJ.
  20. I posted a question on Concours Mustang Forum about my yellow 69 Coupe w/standard black interior & the answer was "it would be the painted the dark charcoal metallic like most of the other painted surfaces ". I think It could also make a difference what the exterior color is & the assembly plant it was built in.
  21. Bryon, good work figuring it out. You guys have to get all these gliches figured out before I buy mine. :)
