    The BF lettering is a pain to keep clean due to the leaching the coopers lettering is holding up 10 times better

    magnum 500 rims

    According to Barnett who is a builder that frequents this site and has done 50+ Mustangs: Go with 15x7 with a 4.25 backspace (back of the wheel to the mounting surface) with a 5 x 4.5 lug pattern. He recommends Specialty Wheels. At one time the shipping was $16 per wheel if ordered individually, but $50 per wheel when ordering four, so you will need to review current shipping practices. The largest tire on the front that won't hit slightly under some conditions is a P235/60R15. If you want "The Look" go with BF Goodrich TA radials with raised white letters. The second most popular tire is Cooper, which actually gets a slightly better satisfaction rating.

    I've been trying to diagnose an erratic voltage gauge for a few weeks that would fluctuate between 9 and ~14v. When I had the battery and alternator checked they passed with flying colors. So I bought a new gauge, and experienced the same issues. Figured it had to be electrical, and probably a bad ground so I checked and found they were good. I also checked the 12v source to the gauge as far as I could. At 65 with a bad neck, back, eyes, and certainly attitude I was ready to give up. Then I membered I had Randy's number and maybe ought to call him. After a couple of questions he nailed it. Since I looove to crawl under the dash, I had reached under the dash to snap a pic of the fuse box, but didn't look closely at the pic. While troubleshooting with Randy he mentioned the accessory post on the fuse box. I looked at the pic, oops...a loose terminal on the stud. Erectricity 101. Thanks MidLife.

    Hey Noah, welcome to the site. Sounds like you are building a beast. What are you going to be doing with the car, cruising, drag racing, auto cross? That might be helpful to know. Also, any time anyone asks about suspension I recommend they call and talk to Shaun at Street or Track. He is great to talk to, very knowledgeable and no pressure to buy his stuff. He will just give you the info you need for you to decide. Plus his product are top notch. I am running his front set up and disc spindles on my car. Have no complaints. Keep the updates coming and progress pics are always welcome!

    After changing the water pump, I no longer had coolant pooling on top of the timing cover behind the pump, but now I have oil pooling! Got everything cleaned off, then started the car and watched. Started seeing oil begin weeping through a tiny hairline crack on top of the timing cover and running to the area where the pooling was located. Stopped the engine, cleaned everything off, sprayed some carb cleaner just to wipe it down, and then applied a small thin bit of Quick Steel high heat putty to the crack and smoothed it like drywall mud. I let it sit for two hours (package said one), and then fired it back up. Voila! No more oil pooling! I feel good about my fix, as the timing chain cover does not have a lot of pressure to it, and it was just a tiny crack. That was 4 days ago. I've driven it every day, and have been checking. Still no leak! Hooray! The picture show the pooling, although there was usually much more than this! The crack was up at the top of the cover, near the bolt.

    He did just have a birthday you know, so maybe he bought a bottle with the intent to send it, but now can’t remember where he put it?? lol

    No he did not. Laggard, but I expected he'd not send one.

    looking for stock 69 big block air cleaner

    Bill is interesting to talk to. I have bought several items from him. I needed a air cleaner base and lid and snorkel for my R code. Some of those repro parts are fiberglass and I did not like that idea. Very nice quality and Bill has them made by the original contractor to Ford. Bill seldom answers the phone but will return your call. Good luck. Dave R.

    I have 2 garages at my house, the upstairs one, where the proper cars are, and then the downstairs garage that my wife calls the "black hole". My other garage is a 22 foot enclosed car trailer where my '68 Mustang currently sits until I get the '70 done. It is a great place to hide all kinds of stuff like firearms, cool tools that she won't understand, fishing gear, and tons of car parts. I also have a bunch of vintage Shelby art n the garages and my office, like the poster on the left with the blonde Shelby Gal with the Cowboy hat..... I tell her it is just some vintage "advertising"... "yeah right" is the response... Thank God for the haven of the man-cave.....

    After carefully scraping off the loose stuff, I put my DynaMat right over that stuff.

    Not today, but over the weekend: Just got the car back from the shop after the accident. Installed a new FlowKooler aluminum water pump, and took her for a spin!

    30 years of collecting crap will get you this. Built the big garage 25 years ago, took a while but its full. Added a "mezzanine" when my company moved us out of our building, let us take anything we wanted, got a lot of cabinets, shelfs, etc.

    You're more than welcome. It is often that another set of eyes/mindset can troubleshoot things better than the one experiencing the problem. The main reason why I am on this and other forums, as well as my wiring refurbishment business, is that I really enjoy trouble-shooting from a distance. Having a detached perspective (e.g. a dirty mind laying in the gutter) and helping people out gives me great satisfaction out of life. That, and a good brand of whiskey...

    Quick update, the car is still in the body/paint shop, progress a little slow, but some decent progress finally being made now. Panels all lined up and the doors had a lot of work on them to retain the original skins.

    Don't know about the smartest nor richest (I'm broke lol) and I bought a field to plant this building and house in, I am sick of raking leaves... ... unless those trees did produce money, then I might plant a few dozen...

    I upgraded my shop recently, went from 1,500sqft to 2,400sqft out in the country away from city taxes and such. You really don't know what all you have until you have to move it in one week. Went from nothing in the way... ... to having to get everything under roof. Our old property sold rather quickly and our new place was on the verge of being completed. A month and a half later, things are starting to get put in place, but there is still a bunch of stuff to go through before it is completely opperational. Got to get the lift put back together and finish wiring the rest of the building, construct the restroom and small office, go through some more boxes... this is taking forever.

    I was being optimistic to be fair, but I have aligned most of the panels and striped a few down to bare metal. Major jobs are the Door skin to change, hood front to sort (minor dents) and the repro fender to sort out. my guy is pretty fast and he has capacity now, so that’s why it’s gone a little earlier then I expected it he re-painted my Mach 1 about 12 months ago so I know his work. Just need to decide on paint colour, I’m really torn on colour, Wish me luck Chris
