  1. The BF lettering is a pain to keep clean due to the leaching the coopers lettering is holding up 10 times better
  2. He did just have a birthday you know, so maybe he bought a bottle with the intent to send it, but now can’t remember where he put it?? lol
  3. My brother bought his 69 S code Mach in 79 and knew I would have to have one. I got mine in 80 at the age of 15, a 69 Drag Pac for 1500. The drivetrain was long gone and had been replaced with a CJ and C6. I later found out she carried the nickname of the "Blue Ghost" due to the many eyry happenings to the prior 6-7 owners. My brother and I were self taught on working on them, with some help from the Chilton's Manual. I was known at HS as the Mach 1 Kid, never got beat street racing, and was constantly harassed by the police for excessive noise, exhibition of acceleration, and no front license plate. In 86 we parted ways, but still carried all the memories and scars of owning her. The 70 vert I bought 7 years ago rekindled the flame and soon got another 69 Mach a year later, then a 68, another 70 vert, a 70 coupe, and then restored my brothers Mach. I don't know what it is about the 69/70 Mustangs that leave a craving within my soul to restore just one more. I do know though, this forum has created many a long distance friend ships with men I will never meet, hours of entertainment, very helpful advice, built confidence within on wiring/electrical issues, joys, sorrows, and the ability of giving back to others. Thanks Guys
  4. Here’s the long piece. You needed it too correct, LH
  5. You got a pic of what you need, believe I have it and would just charge shipping

    I blame RPM

    Some flipped the kill switch
  7. I’ll have to do some digging, but may have them
  8. Well, here’s the one I bought for 400
  9. Gave several parts away including the wiring harness to Midlife for helping me solve a wiring issue.
  10. Several years ago, bought a 69 Grande parts car for 500. It was a total rust bucket, but cleared 4000 on selling the part out I didn’t want, while still keeping, fenders, buckets, doors, compete tilt wheel column, and majority of all the little nick knacks to put 2 cars together. Then traded the shell and title for the rear 70 tail end.
  11. Shims for upper a frame bolts or front fenders, upper/lower, bolts
  12. Got both, sb or a big block 3 speed if u still need it
  13. Tilt was added, without installing all the components to go with, which we have. Missing the cover where wires are exposed though.
  14. Boy was he surprised, I opened the shop door for him and his jaw dropped. First question he had was about the tie rod ends, told him that was fixed thurs night and was the bait. Then popped the hood, hooked up the battery and said “take her for a spin”. Thank he crapped in his pants on that one since he was clueless on me picking up the motor 3 weeks ago. He fired her up and was gone for about 20 min, started getting a little worried since the front end needs aligned and has uncapped headers and I hadn’t driven it yet. He pulled back in grinning from ear to ear. I’m going to finish a couple of little things, fix the header leak, exhaust run, and front end aligned. He’ll need that much time to clean his shop up to park it in.
  15. Brakes are working good now after a little adjusting!! Thanks for the link in ilex. First time back on the road in 30 years. Brother is coming out tomorrow am, to what he thinks is another costly issue I need to show him, boy will he be surprised when I tell him to start her up and take her for a drive. 3 years worth of labor done with love and gratitude for my older brother, a little pay back for all he has done for me over the years.
  16. So do you remember what you did yesterday? Well do ya?
  17. What kind of hokey pokey dolly system you got working holding the back of your motor up. I've seen it all now!!
  18. Brakes- new front calipers installed on correct sides with bleeder on top, rear shoes adjusted correctly, new stainless lines, new rubber lines to calipers, new transition hose at axle, new mst cylinder that was bench bled, new brake booster, rebuilt proportioning valve. Tool used to keep valve in place, still installed, while gravity bleeding and then pedal bleeding. Have a good pedal with very little travel, but when the car is running, pedal is mush. Vacuum gauge at idle reading right at 15 Any suggestions on where to start?
  19. 70 tie rod ends did the trick. Next question for the forum in 5, 4, 3, 2, 1
  20. Fits to far in the hole to where it won’t cinch up. Shaft just spins inside the spindle hole. It’s like a 18 yr old tapping a 70 year old whore, loose as all get out. Have the 70 tie rods ordered now and will be in tomorrow, so will keep you posted. Worse case I’ll just use a popsicle stick and rubber bands, to get it up and in, lol.
