  1. Doing nothing is definitely the best option. In my case my car sat in a field in Florida for years, with water collecting in the drivers floorboard that eventually caused me to replace half of the floor section. I envy the folks that have cars with the original patina that shows years of normal wear and tear...it’s only original once.
  2. Right, or just use the alligator clip to clip it physically on the gas tank, like right at the sender or to the hard fuel line coming out of the sender
  3. If you read the instructions, VHX recommends running a ground for the gas gauge back to the gas tank. There’s a connection on their black box for that. I ran extra wires both to the front and back of my car. I ran the ground wire and used one of the gas tank mounting screws to hook a ring lug to and ground it that way. Before you go to all the trouble, just run a jumper wire with some alligator clips see if that works. There are also instructions in the VHX manual on how to calibrate your gas gauge. Good luck and let me know how it works out
  4. Really great video, thanks a lot. I also have a C9X intake, which I didn’t use. The Edelbrock is maybe a little bit higher, but without the 5/16”spacer I should be right on with the hood scoop height. Thanks so much for posting this!
  5. Lanky, thanks for the info. I have heard a lot of the same from other Borgeson users. My upgrade is pretty recent, in last 3 years or so. Perhaps they changed their design or something. Are you using the GM style pump?
  6. And, due to my shorty headers, I could not run my brake lines on the passenger side of the master cylinder
  7. because with the dual diaphragm booster, the stock master cylinder, and the new equalizing valve and bracket I had for my 4 wheel disc brakes, the setup hit my shock tower
  8. The engine bay was media blasted and primed with PPG primer, final coat PPG single stage satin black. It's really easy to touch up with aftermarket black satin paint
  9. Here is my previous post 69 coupe from SVK - Page 3 - Project Progress Forum - 69stang.com and 1969stang.com The 1969 and 1970 Mustang Supersite
  10. Yes, I tried 2 modern master cylinders out as the stock one was really close to my shock tower with my dual brake booster. I got one for a mid-1990's Ford Explorer and one from a mid-1990's Ford Ranger. I used the reservoir from one, and the body from another. I used the body that had the fittings connections on the drivers side, and the flat reservoir. After I did that, I figured out the one in the link below would fit directly. You need to get the metric standard brake line adaptors. The bore and rod length are the same as the '70 Mustang. The only modification I had to do was slightly enlarge the mounting holes. I think I did a post on this, I will look for it. Dorman M390269 New Brake Master Cylinder
  11. Oh wow. I used a Pertronix III billet distributor that is pretty much the same size as the stock one to avoid that.
  12. I went to the 1965 World fair with my parents, I was 6 years old. We did all the rides, including the "Magic Skyway" at the Ford Pavilion. Our ride vehicle was a 1965 Mustang Convertible. I was hooked. Within a few months, my Uncle, who was in his late 20's purchased a '65 coupe. It was highland green, 289-4bbl, 4 speed, styled steel wheels. He had that car for years, and drove it everywhere, including cross country a few times. My cousin bought a '66 fastback a few years later, then a '68 GT coupe, my other cousin had a '68 fastback, another Uncle acquired a '66 coupe. It was like a disease, everyone had to have one. At 18, my first car was a 64-1/2 coupe with a "D" code 289 and a T-10 4 speed. Then a "S" code '68 coupe replaced that. I didn't get my next Mustang until the late 80's, which was a '68 coupe. I still have that car today. A long line of modern Mustangs followed, I have owned every generation Mustang, except for the current one. When I finish my '70 Convertible, I will give my '68 to my daughter, who also has the Mustang disease.... Her cousin has a '66 coupe... My Grandson also is afflicted with this problem, picture of him below helping load a project car onto a trailer, and the other grandkids hanging out in my Convertible.....
  13. Oh, on my pic there is a plastic storage hatch. I source it from a Marine Parts Catalog, they are used on Boats.
