  1. Actually the lower plates do not matter ,they only hold the carriage bolt in place,keep it from dropping through ,the bolt slides in through the big opening in the top of the tower and locks into the smaller slot ,leave all the bolts loose and set the brace in place then tighten them up . The cheaper braces do not fit well but i have not had a problem with the thick stampings
  2. 20 years of construction work have destroyed my shoulders ,i can barely lift my arms over my head with out a bunch of popping and cracking sounds . And the knees , ouch!
  3. Ah ,it was going to happen any way !
  4. Nasty reply ...nasty reply !
  5. I keep telling you ,the red wire with the green stripe does not connect to the green wire with the red stripe but will you listen ...noooo!
  6. You can move towards the front more if you place a piece of wood on top of the stand to spread out the load
  7. Mustangs can take up smoking wires at any time . I drove my 66 fast back for several years with out a problem ,one day it decided that pretty pink wire in the dash looked better black ,i still have a scar on my hand where i reached under the dash and ripped it out still smoking
  8. They are jig alignment holes for assembling at the factory ,you will find several of them all over the body
  9. I still make them ,problem is i do not have a shipper that is reasonable
  10. 550. My dealer sells them for close to 800
  11. Can you piece in a convertible filler or is yours gone around the back window?
  12. 69 70 is all to its self ,67 68 filler will not work . I dont think they are being reproduced so your best bet is to find a donor car
  13. The hood mold has been done for a long time ,gave up on the ram air part ,it wouldn't clear the distributor . Sold several and no complaints and there is always some complaint about something
  14. Haha ,for some reason i read that as seat belt hole haha
  15. 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
  16. I usually bend the lip up when i do have to do just a patch ,you can cut the floor pan across the center lip of the seat riser under the floor ,it makes for a good joint and easier to hide . If the seat belt hole is simply stripped out you can replace just the plate the bolt threads into . If it is blown out i would just patch it in a seperate patch
  17. I was brought some items today from a friend ,yes the one that was supposed to rebuild my top loader about 5 years ago . The whole top loader ,disassembled but complete along with the racing rebuild kit ,i just have to find someone to assemble it for me because i have long lost all the want to . He brought a few more goodies ,enough paint to paint a full mustang in Wimbledon white along with guardsman blue and two gallons of clear ...now this is the old good stuff and will probably get used on my nephews 65 fast back. There is a victor jr. 351 intake that has never been bolted on but a bit dusty ,along with a holly street dominator for a 351 . Also a holly spread bore that actually came off my old ski boat and i believe it is for a 429 CJ because that is what it had in it . One more nice thing ,a very decent set of original thunder bird special aluminum valve covers ,does this mean the wind may be finally be blowing my way again ...only time will tell !
  18. I sold off almost everything to buy some property ,got screwed out of the property and sold all my cars for nothing ,i haven't touched a car since ,but i will be starting on my last 69 soon
