  1. Thanks
    Len69Coupe reacted to aslanefe in Another, what are these?   
    As they were with your cowl panel hardware, they go under the cowl panel where the rubber bumps are at both ends to level the cowl with fender. Put them between cowl panel and cowl before you tighten the rubber bumper screw (screw goes through the opening of shim). My 69 Grande have those to align the cowl panel.

    here is my vert..nothing on the side.. a little  narrower and tighter than the 70.
    I do think the scoop helps a lot.

    If you are undecided and want to try several looks, you could always use wrap material, then if you don't like it or want to change just peel it off.

    Len69Coupe got a reaction from Grabber70Mach in It's finally running :)   
    So after 5 years of not having a running engine in my Mustang we finally got the new one going. Life get's in the way and before you know it time has flown by.
    Of course it didn't just fire right up with no problems though. 1st we had a bad coil which took a few hours to figure out. Then we had the firing order screwed up. It has a Trick Flow Stage 1 cam which complicated the matter. It would run on the Trick Flow and stock firing order, but was backfiring pretty bad. Took my son and I a day to figure out that the firing order goes counterclockwise, not clockwise, duh! It's actually my fault, but in my defense it's been 40 years since I even thought about a firing order, lol.
    I still have some wiring to clean up and a whole lot of body work to go, but it's a huge step for me and has me motivated to get it done.
    Thanks to the forum and especially Mach1 Driver for his awesome wiring diagram.

    They're called show panels. I had the below site bookmarked because they had them for the 69, but don't list them any longer. Not sure who sells them now.

    Edit: I looked a little closer and they do still sell them. My original bookmark was dead.

    We weld them up, and drill the correct  size. Going  with a bigger  screw  looks butt ugly :(

    I can't remember if those are small slotted holes, but if not, consider putting in a rivut nut (or equivalent) and a matching fastener.

    Absolutely, doing anything with the caps after installing is next to impossible which is why you often find holes blown in the sides of the shock towers.

    So I bought the front end rebuild kit from Mustang's Unlimited, which included the UCA's, LCA's, spring perches etc. Should the UCA's be ready to install? I shouldn't have to adjust the caps right? I've read when you rebuild them you should spot weld the caps. Do I need to do this on new UCA's?
     
    I also ordered the Shelby Drop template :)

    So I'm in the process of doing a front end rebuild and when I went to remove the drivers side UCA I noticed shims behind the rear part of the UCA. I'm guessing these are for alignment. After I get the car back together I will have an alignment done anyway, but should I reinstall these when I install the new UCA or leave them out?
