    Wet sanded with 320 grit & primed. Will wet sand this with 400 grit. If its smooth and flawless I'll shoot it with POR15 or KBS rust seal to give the fiberglass some additional protection from chips then final prime.

    Replacement Gages

    I have a 69 Mach 1 original tach in cluster and like to keep things original but I have made some modifications which I will list: * converted existing tach with rocketman www.RCCInnovations.com. Luckily I was able to buy one cheap on ebay and converted that. what he does is replace the guts but face is the same. * got the console pod and installed voltmeter and oil pressure it in the ashtray which is where the shelby's had them. * for voltmeter i just tapped existing wiring that was nearby the console * mustangs have the oil pressure sensor made for dummy lights. so i had to replace with oil pressure sensor made for gauge. * clock stopped working but i found a place where you can buy remanufactured original guts if your willing to take that apart. Let me know if you have questions? rob

    Replacement Gages

    I am also an engineer so that is not an issue. Just trying to understand how they are tying it in. I assume you have to cut the existing connector from the harness? Thanks Rick

    Replacement Gages

    I have used the Dakota gauges, not on a mustang but another application, they worked fine. There is a control box that most of your inputs will be connected to and from the box the signals are transferred to the cluster via cat 5 cable. There's 4 inputs, ebrake, hi beam indicator, right and left turn that is a direct connection from existing wires from harness. I will also say that the oil pressure gauge stopped working and after a few diagnostic tests with a tec. at dakota he recommended returning the cluster for further inspection. This was like over a year later and I thought there would be a charge but he told us the gauges were warranted for life.

    Guess I should post an UPDATE since I've been driving it since the end of April !! As I stated in my Jan 5th post, I pressure tested my custom fuel inlet line in a bucket of water with compressed air and had no leaks. Well, I ended up having a fuel leak between my custom tube and the brass primary fuel bowl inlet fitting. Tightening it did not help, so I removed the tube assy. and put on temporary hose barbs / tee and cobbled it together with hose & clamps. My flare on the tube was good at the leak point, however the cone in the brass adapter was distorted / damaged so I ordered a 2-pc set of them from Summit (surprised it actually sealed up to the temporary brass hose barb adapter). There was the Summit brand, Holley, & Demon to chose from and I went with the Demon 142117 2-pc. set as it came with the washers & screens and was the best value (all 3 are likely made by the same mfr.). Replaced it and reinstalled my tube assembly and the leak was gone. I had read that you really should use a 4-hole carb spacer on a dual plane intake so I also ordered up a Canton 85-154 4-hole 1/4" thick phenolic spacer and a MR G # 55 4-hole gasket for between the carb & spacer to replace the thick open center gasket supplied with the Summit carb. Since my Offy 360 dual plane is not a 4-hole style, I used an open center gasket between the spacer & intake. With my custom Ram-Air set up, I can't have any thicker spacer than this. I had also ordered up the MR G # 97 1/4" thick heat dissipator set (2 aluminum plates & 3 # 55 gaskets) and tried this first but it did not dissipate the heat enough in that I could hear fuel gurgling when I shut the engine off when hot. Funny, the Holley never did this and all I used under it for 30+ years was a single MR G # 55 gasket !! The electric choke hooked up to the alternator stator terminal (instead of 12V as stated in the Summit instructions) also seems to be acceptable as the choke fully opens like it should and when it should. I also installed a Holley 20-59 Quick Change Cover Kit on the Vac-Secondary spring chamber. The secondaries did not seem to be opening, so I swapped out the stock 0.033" wire spring for a 0.029" and they now seem to be opening at the right time. I also followed the instructions from this video prior to installation: I did need to turn the curb idle speed screw in a bit to get it to idle at 700-750 RPM and the sweet spot on the idle mixture screws is at 2 full turns out. My vacuum is a little low at idle (only 11-12"), and I'm tempted to swap the Holley back on to see where it was at before. It starts & idles nicely and runs & drives great, so I'm not too concerned at the moment. Doug

    Thanks but not back surgery, it was actually bladder & prostate. My urologist said if I let it go I would be stuck with a catheter the rest of my life. You don't realize what muscles help with bladder control and what happens when you strain too much and don't have the control you once had. It's a slow road to get that control back but its coming back a little at a time. Sorry if that's TMI for any of you.

    Started back on wet sanding the lower nose. First time this year I've been able to do anything on the car. Had minor surgery back in March, still recovering but able to do more now. Also tied up with having the kitchen completely remodeled, plumbing reworked under the slab, electrical rework, new cabinetry, the works. There probably won't be much progress on the car for a while on anything that will take money to accomplish. I will continue on the things that I can though.

    I know this is an old thread, and I apologize in advance. But I'm currently installing the front side bumper brackets and I am not for sure witch way the nut goes into the valance. It looks like the nut would be installed from the back side of the valance with the fingers facing / gripping on the outside of valance. I have a picture of the nuts below that I have. Any help would be appreciated!

    U joint cap clips, help needed

    Gently hit the center of the cap with a drift punch or ...yes ,an old extension ,it will loosen the cap from the snap ring enough to make the ring loosen ,a dremmel with a cutting wheel should cut the ring enough to be able to bend it or break it ,and those are the wrong snap rings, they are actually 65 66 style

    Driver's side floor pan

    I believe convertible floor pan has the lip bent down and you can install this one without removing the seat riser on a fastback. You can cut the old one out as big as the replacement one so the aft portion is at or past the seat riser, then weld this one with lip down on rocker (with seat riser in place), and butt weld the aft and inboard sides. It will not be correct but you are already using a non-correct for 69-70 front floor pan anyway.

    Finally got my voltage regulator I’ve been waiting for since last year. I got racing seats for my 2016 Viper ACR E so I might reupholster those seats in white w grabber blue stitching & install in the GT350. Shelby worked on the Mustang & Viper so it’s not a big stretch.

    agreed, I tried to base my wheel setup on this chart when I started to pick out wheels and tire combos, but soo many ppl had different set ups, its hard to collect that much data as every year a new kit would appear. Im happy with my setup 18x9/10 245/40 275/40 with SOT Front Coil Overs and Grab-A-Track 4.5 Mid Eye leafs with Vintage Venom's brake kit:

    Went with the smaller round lights down below. Added cut outs for the LED Audi A4 front marker lights. Wet sanded with 230 wet and re-primed using some leftover spray bomb primer. Most of that will get sanded off.

    On the outside like the top picture. I cut a small piece of thin rubber to put in between the brace and the valence and used a stainless socket head bolt to attach it. I think they were black from the factory? All of the ones I have taken off have been rust colored though. You can't really see them when everything is bolted together unless you really look for them.
