  1. Thanks for all the pictures and links guys
  2. Hey Bob, I'm considering a roll bar as well. I removed my front suspension to be able to clean everything up and reinforce the shock towers. I'll call you later if your not busy man....
  3. Is this the rear torque box? I read somewhere that the convertible rockers will go from the front torque box to the rear and that's the correct way to install them. The inner rockers are my next step on my 69 coupe build and wanted to know if I should try to connect the torque boxes with the convertible inner rockers or just install them as per the article on streetortrack and cut them to length
  4. A guy on another mustang forum told me he had a company come out and dry blast the interior and wet blast the exterior. That will be hard for me because my driveway is at a angle and I have it on skates. I'm worried of it getting away from me and rolling into the street. Then ill be SOL to bring it back in my garage. Something to look into though. He said it wasn't expensive.
  5. Still waiting for my convertible rockers and pan but for now I'm cleaning up the sound deadening/glue stuff. Since the original color of my mustang is gold nugget, that's the interior and door jamb color. I want to paint the exterior dark grey or dark blue at a later time but I feel like I should do this properly and paint the interior as well but I need to prep it first obviously. For now I can at least primer the interior. To clean the interior and engine bay I was planning on using my gas powered pressure washer with chemicals and brushing then thoroughly drying the remaining water but what about the paint? Sanding by hand, forget it..... too much time I have a 90 degree die grinder but also too much time. What methods are normally used to prep the interior for painting? Thanks guys
  6. Because of the height of the seats ill be installing i won't need the seat pans. Even with my stock pans of my 69 coupe it was too high. With no pans its a perfect height. So the problem i have is i can't install the convertible 1 piece seat pans. I was planning on welding a nice 1/8 sheet of metal (or thicker) where the pan was and maybe some 1/8 sheet pounded/shaped over the tunnel and welded in. I think RPM told me to even consider cutting off the pans and welding in the tunnel part only but this was before I even attempted to remove my pans. Either him or I read that here somewhere. I wanted to do the rockers and pans and leave it like that on the body and work on the front and rear with other methods but since I can't use the pans I'm a little lost. You guys think I'll be good with my idea of welding in some thick sheets of metal and forming some over the the tunnel? I can still cancel the seat pans if I choose. Its not expensive but I don't want that laying around and not be able to use them
  7. Oh crap, sorry Bob. I forgot to check back. I have been working a lot at my job and I was messing with the seats I bought. I'll contact you tomorrow I removed the seat pan and I just need to trim a little to make space for the rockers. I'll have to reinforce the floor......
  8. The wiring for the power seats was surprisingly easy. Snipped the wires i believed that were positive and negative from the seat harness plug and connected them to a battery and success! Now my mustang will have both front power seats :) Since the seats can rise and lower i probably can get rid of the seat pans. I'll find out when I install my convertible inner rockers.
  9. I see what you mean. I like how you put up the descriptions to compare.
  10. The original one on my mustang looks slightly different like this picture
  11. I have a new moog k8161 and it looks identical (to me at least) as the opentracker roller idler arm. Anyone know if these two the same thing? I'd hate to buy the same thing twice especially if its goto run $85 the second time. I already have the other parts for my manual steering figured out and I'm going to have chockostang rebuild my steering box (power steering version) once he emails me the information.
  12. Thats what I wanted to know. If it made a big difference on a street car with manual steering. I searched around and found someone asking the same thing and people told him it will be better to upgrade other things than that. I already have roller spring perches and the Shelby drop.
  13. Yes I saw how you did it but I liked the design and how the bottom hugs your bottom and how deep it is :D If it was a basic flat bench I definitely would have done it your way
