    New Ride/Project

    Nice score Bob. I would love one of those.
  2. Nice looking Mustang.
  3. I have been looking for a newer truck since my 2000 Ranger died. I have looked at a few Rangers & they were way overpriced beat up trucks, then this truck came up on my wife's phone for sale. It is a 2005 F-150 2WD Regular Cab, bright red, with med gray cloth interior. It has the 5.4L V-8, Auto Trans, PS, PB, A/C, PL, PW, PM, AM/FM single CD radio, side steps, spray on bed liner, hard shell tonneau cover, & only 80,500 miles. I am the 3rd owner & it has a clean Carfax report, & I got all the maintenance records.
  4. Welcome. Nice looking 69 Vert, love the color.

    Our new garage

    I want to put a coating on the floor & I was looking at Daich TracSafe anti slip sealer, or Rustoleum Epoxyshield. Anti-Slip 1 Gal. Clear Multi-Surface Sealer Water Repellent and Chemical Resistant TSASU-37 (homedepot.com) Rust-Oleum EpoxyShield 2-part Tan Gloss Garage Floor Epoxy Kit (2-Gallon) in the Garage Floor Paint department at Lowes.com
  7. Rich, I used the Ford Contour dual cooling fans on a 24" radiator, & a serpentine drive for just an alternator. Here is a pic of the clearance I have between the pulley & the radiator.
  8. I used the dual cooling fans from a Ford Contour. I used a 24" radiator & I am running manual steering with a stock water pump. Here is a pic that shows how much clearance I have.
  9. I purchased a rebuilt box from Chock & with the roller idler arm that I got from Opentracker Racing it steers easy. They are great to deal with.

  10. I am 64 years old & have manual steering in my 69 Coupe with a roller idler arm & it steers like it had PS.
  11. WOW! looks great, nice progress.

    Our new garage

    Doug, quite alright. Once the inside is finished my Mustang & my wife's motorcycle are going in the garage then her Bronco Sport can have the carport. I would have built it longer but the property starts to slope away a little & would have needed foundation work, the concrete was expensive enough for a 24 x 25.

    Our new garage

    We are now settled into our "new to us" home pictures are hung, ceiling fans put up & some other stuff done so now it is garage time. The property to the left of the carport that was very flat so we contracted with a local company to come out to pour a fotting & slab that a few weeks later the garage was put up. It is 24' wide x 25' deep with 11' high walls which BTW will be high enough for a lift. This is the new home for my Mustang & my wife's motorcycle. We have to have the electrical work done, insulated, & finished interior walls put up.
  14. The one I have is like the one in the attached link. Threaded Insert Riveter Kit (harborfreight.com)
  15. Wild pony welcome to the forum. I am also rebuilding a 69 Coupe that I acquired as a rolling shell 20 years ago. If you need a headliner I have an extra new one I would sell you less then new. Used Mustang parts check out Blue Ridge Mustang parts in Virginia, I have purchased parts from him in the past & very good to deal with. There also is a guy in Florida who sells used Mustang parts who I have purchased parts from & is a nice guy, his e mail is paparet2@juno.com. Hope that helps.
  16. Hi Vic, Happy New Year to you too. Yes we moved in the middle of August last year. Next week we will be here for 6 months already. The new house is working out great. Your 70 Vert is looking good, keep up the good work. We are having a garage built for the Mustang so soon I will be back working on it. We have to arrange a time in the summer to meet up.
  17. Since I added a center parking brake on the trans tunnel from a 1987 Mustang I am going to make a custom one for my car, plus I am not thrilled with the aftermarket ones or their price.
  18. Looks great Vic. How is the weather down there? It has been snowing here since 7:00am.
  19. How is $30.00 including the shipping?
  20. Happy & Healthy New Year back to you & everyone else here.
  21. I do not need the sender, I have an electric fuel pump & I am going to convert to EFI. If you do not want it I will try to sell it on ConcoursMustang forum.
  22. Josh, I just came across a guy on facebook who has a 69 Coupe that he is selling parts off of. The chrome trim around the front & rear windshilds & the chrome trim around the side windows looks good if you need any of it.(20+) Marketplace - 1969 mustang coupe glass both door glass, quarter glass rear window and windshield 200.00 | Facebook
