  1. I installed an entire rear clip. Support everything and take plenty of measurements before you make the first cut.
  2. I made my own rotisserie. Its a 427 stroked to 482. Triangulated 4-bar rear suspension. Richmond trans, I fabbed the headers and exhaust.
  3. I modified the plate to give more room. 3" all the way out
  4. The ride wasn't earth shaking but you can feel the difference. The Del-Alum bushings have a very snug fit to control side to side movement. Make sure you lube them well when installing or you will hear them.
  5. I used Del-Alum bushings on my 68 coupe. They were form Pro Motorsports (this was back in the early 1990's). The ride was rougher than normal but they did improve cornering quite a bit.
  6. I have used Muggy Weld Super Alloy 1 to repair broken studs to convertible well trim. It works great. Just practice a bit first. http://muggyweld.com/super-alloy-1
  7. Years of saving and not revealing the true cost to my wife! Build thread will be coming when I get more consistent time to work on it.
  8. I don't have pics of the tires and wheels under it but here is the reason for the meats out back. A bit of engine porn for you.
  9. The side panels fit with no modifications. The seat has been narrowed to fit with the mini tubs (325-40-17 out back). Just make sure the top mechanics clear in all positions.
  10. I welded my bar in. It's a Tony Branda One piece bar. .
  11. There is a difference between coupe and convertible quarter glass in spite of some claims to the contrary. Link http://www.1969stang.com/mustang/forum/showthread.php?t=9151&highlight=convertible+glass I took the pics in the link above and there is a difference. I am not saying that you can't interchange them but you may have a hard time making them line up properly
  12. Convertibles make the work hard but more rewarding in the end. Take your time. My car had extensive damage due to a poor repair done years before. I got lucky and found a wrecked convertible for the donor quarter panel.
  13. Nice work! Save your patterns. I'm sure someone here will need these made in the future.
  14. I got lucky and found a wrecked convertible and I transferred the parts I needed. Chances are you won't find a 69-70 ragtop in a junkyard. You will probably have to fabricate something.
  15. "As others said, '69 Coupes & Convertibles shared the same side glass ... same for '70, just with the switch to the bolt in style and moving the vertical gasket between the two from the door glass to the qtr. glass." The convertible use a specific rear quarter window that is different than a coupe. Door glass is the same for coupe or convertible. Just depends on if you have bolt in or glue in. Link to photos of the quarter glass differences. http://www.1969stang.com/mustang/forum/showthread.php?t=9151&highlight=convertible+glass
