    Toploader yoke installed depth

    I push the yoke all the way in, and make a mark on the yoke at the rear of the transmission. Then, pull it out 1" and mark the yoke again for reference. Ask the person who is going to make your driveshaft how they want it to be measured. Typically, it is from centerline to centerline of the u-joints. A CRITICAL step is to make sure the weight of the car is on the rear suspension when you do the measuring.

    Space saver spare?

    I think we've been focusing on the spare being in the boot. I have the solution!

    Space saver spare?

    I got a couple of spare tires, located just above my belt. Unfortunately, they are not space savers by any definition...*sigh* Sorry I can't help you further.

    I just saw this and haven't tried them, and they are exceedingly expensive, but get this: Compliant - No-glare beam pattern meets or exceeds SAE and DOT Requirements https://www.holley.com/products/exterior/lighting/headlight/round_headlights/parts/LFRB125

    Space saver spare?

    That must be a 73 model, when the manufacturers were forced to add 5 mph bumpers!

    Odd question

    How many times do we get told by the experts that our 69 Mach 1 came with a cleveland because they know someone who had one. I just smile and walk away. Most times it is someone not even born in 1969. Love the 351W

    According to my measurements of a 69 non-power brake pedal and 70 power brake pedal (shouldn't matter but both for auto transmission cars) and calculations, non-power pedal ratio is about 6 to 1, and power is about 3 to 1. I am not sure if someone makes a 6.25 to 1 pedal that fits a 69 Mustang but a stock non-power brake pedal should work for you. I went from non-power drum to power disk on one of my 69s couple years ago; if I am not forgetting something, I replaced the non-power pedal with a power pedal that came with the kit, enlarged the hole on firewall to install the booster/master. So you may have to install a block off plate to cover the hole I had to enlarge when you remove the booster. Also, you have to install a residual pressure valve on your rear lines if you have drums on rear and Wilwood master does not have a built in pressure valve.

    Shelby Drop questions.......again

    I didn’t even know that pedders sold shocks for our mustangs Mal. That’s good to know. My front springs are pedders and it rides nice. I did the shelby drop many years ago and it made a big difference. I just wish I had have welded the plates into the shock towers . Oh well next time .

    69 Mustang alignment

    You can adjust with eccentric, and if you run out of eccentric adjustment, you can shim upper control arm.

    TMI products

    the most original appearing aftermarket deluxe door panel for a 69/70 mustang used to come from virginia mustang and had a white plastic backing. i would sometimes need to bend the upper edge in some that the window felt stapled to, to get the right angle. tmi has the best sewing because their lines are always straight. american cushion industries has the most accurate seat foam in the world bar none. if you want concourse quality interior, you can buy the original material and give it to tmi and they will sew it up for you for the same price they charge for their seat covers complete.

    whatever you do, i would first fill in all the holes you do not plan to use, and fix any small dents/dings.

    Need Opinions: Engine Bay Color

    Be careful with opinions... I had a visit to my doctor and he said I needed drastic surgery. I doubted it, so I told him I wanted a second opinion. He said, "OK, your're ugly too" That is an old but faithful Rodney line.

    As far as I remember, the way you installed is correct, no metal reinforcement or glue.

    69 coupe from SVK

    On my fastback, The weather strip should sit in a channel on the bottom of the door, but they never fit properly, us the 3M weatherstrip adhesive, it’s a horrible job though and I’ve never found a good way to do it yet https://www.ebay.co.uk/p/691436111

    For the first time in 3 yrs the car is back in terra firms, slowly putting it back together - just trying to find all those bits you think you saved/took off, but can’t find in the myriad of boxes…

    I did mine in a satin black epoxy. Pro's are that it is easy to match/touch up the inevitable scratches and dings that will happen during installation. I think the body color option is pretty cool, but requires more prep time. So, as you said, personal preference

    Wanted: 1969 Convertible

    My car wouldn't be for you. It's original 302 has been enhanced by Edelbrock and I to about 320 HP. And T-5 trans. replaced the fact. 3 speed. Rubie red paint and drivability upgrades put it firmly in the "Mod" category. Good luck in the search. There are still a fair no. of unmolested 'original' cars rolling around out there. My car was base in Wimbeldon white, and as such was not highly sought after. I decided it was a good canvas to build the car I wished Ford had made. I would never have done this to a Boss, Bullitt, or Shelby. Then again I couldn't justify driving one of those to the golf course, Tasty Freeze, or local cruse-in. I enjoyed building it nearly as much as I enjoy driving it and the journey, is the destination.

    Well, you've got the right attitude Brian. I just got back from a 4,400 mile road trip in my 69 and met many wonderful people. Unlike what we hear on TV and radio, most people are good to the bone.
