    Well I’m pleased to say that the car came back to me 2 weeks ago from the paint shop. I’m so pleased with it, the paint finish from the shop is just sublime. Now for the hard work of putting it call back together. Chris

    Replacement Gages

    I have the Dakota Digital RTX Series and what an awesome kit! can give you multiple readings i.e Speed, Oil Pressure, Radiator Temp. You can also adjust these settings in your iOS or Android Phone. you can also change the color of the dials. my only gripe with this kit, is it doesn't have the running horse when you select the high beams. thats one thing that I wish that on there. other than that Dakota Digital is a winner for me.

    I've found it useful in compacting all the BS my boss keeps giving me, so some day soon, I can give it back to him to cram it up his ass

    Replacement Gages

    Yes, the kit came with everything, Im not too into wiring, however, the shop I installed it at had no issue and was a straight forward install since my wires were original and not touched/modified prior. definitely one of my favorite things about the car. I dont need to add any additional gauges like oil pressure, water temp, this gauge kit has everything that you need, the two LCD Displays helps alot when on the road, as I get an accurate reading. I highly recommend RTX to anyone who is debating about going with this kit.

    Because the measurements on these cars vary wildly from car to car, that's something you should wait to do until your suspension, hood and fenders are installed. Unless you get custom offset wheels, I'd think you'll be using wheel adapters. Plan on rolling your fenders lips. This is a 17x9 Halibrand with around 1-1/8" spacer, and 275/40 tire.

    parking brake

    I took some 1/4" vacuum tubing and slit it down the side. Then slipped it over the parking brake cable. This way no rattle or rub marks on the nice painted floor pan.

    No fixes, but I've seen that on most Mustangs I've been under.

    Before you cut anything out My recommendation would be to make a detailed diagram & note measurements as well as cross measurements. These measurements will help determine if the car is currently strait & square, or if adjustments need to be made. ASSUMING everything is where is should be they will help you get the new parts in the correct position. 69 & 70 are the same dimensions. Measurement "H", in the diagram below is correct, however, they are measuring from the incorrect hole, it should be the hole in front of the tunnel brace. I would also measure the distance between the top of the aprons in multiple identifiable locations, inside bend NOT the holes. Then cross measure from the firewall to the front of the apron.

    This is the 'Red Arrow' press I referred to earlier. Made in the last century and certainly looks to have a purpose other than pressing bearings. Brian

    69 70 rear quarter glass nylon rollers

    I built some of of uhmw plastic. I found 2 holes saws that were the correct size and built them. One for the base and one for the side that goes in the track. I drilled part way from both directions the correct depth of the original. Then I counter suck a hole in it to and put a stainless 1/4” bolt in with a lock nut. It looks large in the picture but is the same outer diameter as the factory, just round. It travels good in the track with no issues that I’ve noticed.

    Are you talking about the rollers that are installed with swaged stand off to the glass frame and slide inside the 3 rails? If so, I could not find any reproductions. I had a couple which had the springed edges broken. So I 3D printed a couple from ABS, ground the swaged part of the stand off, drilled a hole through the stand off and tapped it. Installed the 3D printed roller using the modified stand off and a bolt. Have been using them for a few years now and still working (but the rear windows do not get rolled up and down a lot).

    This was discussed on the old FE forum. I do recall that the universal cross flows are quite a bit shorter than the stock rad. https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/febigblockold/viewtopic.php?f=21142&t=2478&p=15696&hilit=griffin#p15696

    157 or 164 tooth flexplate?

    U are making way to much out of this. Buy the neutral balanced 164 tooth flex plate that is advertised for the C4 Aod 4R and when u marry the transmission to the engine check the clearance as I posted above and u have no worries.

    It is the hard part, but seeing daily progression, keeps the drive going. Don’t let the little steps backwards frustrate you, we have all had them. Paint looks awesome!!

    Since you’ve got to Chrome the new 3D piece. What would it take to modify what you already have then rechrome the fixed piece.

    suspension/steering upgrade

    I have Street or Track Coil over set up as well. Also have the Unisteer Power steering set up and very happy with all of it. Either way, I would suggest call Shaun at Street or Track and talk to him. Great guy and knows his stuff and will not pressure you at all to buy his stuff, only provide you the info to make your decision. Good luck.

    suspension/steering upgrade

    I have Street or Tracks front Coilover setup with stock power steering/spindles. Easy install, fun to drive! never went with a Rack and Pinion, because of Header selection, I Think TCP would be top tier kit to go with, other rack n pinion kits have mixed reviews.

    Congrats. That is the next step for me on my Coupe to power it up & see what works & what doesn't.

    Thanks, It looks much better than the peeled off chrome or the silver paint I tried. When I get the money I may go reproduction but this keeps my project moving for now.

    I wasn't aware they had a forum- until you got me looking around. I guess that's where you were hanging around for the last week, after Randy crashed this site. We all know he's guilty.

    Sound like your new sharp clutch rod poked a hole on the clutch fork. As you drove it made the hole larger and larger and cause the clutch paddle go lower and lower, that just my thought.

    speedometer driven gear

    As said above using the GPS. Plenty of cheap Speedo Apps for your phone that work vey well. As a rule of thumb I found each tooth equates to about 5% change.

    speedometer driven gear

    Don't know which one is correct, but I would start with 18 (the middle one) and check speedometer reading with GPS then go up or down if needed. At least it is easy to change the gear.
