  1. Mike, I don't know, Long distance relationships never work out :D
  2. My wife got an unexpected surprise today for Mothers day, I got her a 2005 Mustang GT convertible. it has been a car show winner at my club shows, its in Mint condition, even under the hood looks like New. she was speechless, she put both kids in it and they went on a long joy ride, I'm so glad she likes it, this is going to be the weekend car for her, her Prius is still her daily driver. Now we are a 2 mustang family. 1972 Convertible 2005 GT convertible
  3. Well, without getting into what is right and wrong as per MCA rules, no two cars were exactly the same. The "standard" of having red oxide primer underneath may have held true on earlier year Mustangs, but Dearborn cars did not hold to this standard. The factory used a "slop grey" which could be any shade from red to black. It was simply left over paint that was mixed and reused. My car was confirmed as a blackish undercarriage before it was sent off for stripping. The blackout (pinch weld area) was sprayed on after body colour application, again not a science in its application, done solely to hide the body colour on the pinch weld area. There was very little black on the floor pans evident on my original car after body paint was applied, it was mostly body colour the closer you got to the outside of the car. Whatever you see done on my car today is backed up by photographs that were taken of the original undercarriage. That's good that you took before pictures, to help support how it was. all this info we are learning here is great, and it also proves Ford was not constant on how they built cars, everyone is slightly different.
  4. your car looks great!!! As for the under carriage I didn't think it had over spray like that, I thought it was red oxide primer, then body paint, then the black out was painted on, to hide the over spray. http://429mustangcougarinfo.50megs.com/paint_info.htm
  5. I found a mint OEM set on Ebay $30 because I couldn't find an after market set, nice job Greg locating these for us!!!.
  6. Looks good, Keep the pictures coming :D
  7. I might have one in my shed, I can check tonight.
  8. If you take the starter to AutoZone or Advanced Auto they will test it for you.
  9. The convertible A-pillars are not reproduced, Don at OMS is going to be your best bet right now. do you have the shock tower braces to reinstall?
  10. Here is pictures and step by step Directions I sent to CJ pony to post up and to save some money on my purchase :D http://www.cjponyparts.com/mustang-tail-lamp-housing-1971-1973-installation-instructions/a/453/ I also have more pictures I took for removing the lenses, but I have to look for them, there are a few tabs that go through the chrome bezel, you will have to snap off, to remove the lenses from the chrome.
  11. I got a mint core, now I just need to order my Tach!!.
  12. Lend me few $$ and Ill buy the coupe and start an all out PB collection :whistling: Pastel Blue, Your right, 71 Pastel blue is much lighter then the 72-73 Light blue going back to the FB discussion we had about the blue.
  13. After watching the video that Q posted, glue the patch panels in place add some trunk paint which is thick and textured and you'll never see it :)
  14. One out of 2 things might have happened, back in the day the car could have gotten a complete respray, or it was a last minute production change. Either way, the light blue metallic with blue interior will look great!!
  15. Welcome from Rhode Island. are you sticking with the original light blue?
  16. The taillight panel don't need to come out to do a full pan. I did mine. Its tight, but can be done. I even replaced my trunk pan AFTER the car was painted....Brilliant I know!! I heard it can be done, but not easy!!
  17. Here is a link to the work I did in my trunk a few yrs ago, if you are replacing the full floor pan, you will need to remove the tail light panel to get the pan in as one peace. http://www.7173mustangs.com/thread-work-on-tail-light-panel-last-update?pid=118830#pid118830

  19. ::thumb:: ::thumb:: so where can we get these :D
  20. That's why you need a Convertible, you just put the top down to eliminate all Blind spots :D
  21. the radio bezel it not connected to that, you should only have to remove the 4 screws and the Radio and bezel should come off as one assembly, the heat/AC controls stays in place.
