Looks like you are new to forum. Go post and introduction and tell about your car.
What you willing to spend on a tilt column? If you do buy one be sure you get everything you will never find the missing pieces. The forged pieces on the rag joint are different, the plate at the floor is different and never buy one with anything broken parts are scarce.
I see you are in South Africa. Are the person I was talking with several years ago? Live somewhere near Knysna? I lost your email info somehow if it is you.
If not I have been to S.A. 14 trips and was coming back last year and Covid shut that down.
I have been unable to get in touch with a good friend that I hunt on his ranch and actually came over and guided for him for over 4 months. He is over in the Addo area, Charles Mason Ranger. Calls his ranch Ranger's Outdoors. I have tried e-mails and even sent him new boots and never heard anything. Concerned that Covid may have gotten him. His brother runs a car parts rebuild shop in Uitenhage. I first came to Uitenhage to follow tooling at Comau Tooling.
Like how you did the hood. They did do some from Ford the Sprints in 1972 were white cars with blue inserts in hood and red band around that.
So if you know of Charles Ranger would love to get in touch an plan a trip over to visit. Has been way too long. Need to hear a Haa De Dah calling out in the morning. Take long walks in the bush and sneak up on some animals.
So if you need something sent over I have arranged in the past to other members. I tried to put couple pics from Addo Elephant park but keep getting a server error.
Well finally got to Dr. yesterday my general family Dr.. Just like I figured have to get in line for the next Dr.. He thinks I have torn rota-tor cuff in my shoulder along with the crushed disc. I would have gone to ER on Friday but afraid I would not make it there. Even taking oxicondone the pain is crazy at times.
I am beginning to think I will never make the Penn. show unless I can find someone to ride along. I did get a generous offer from one of our members, Rich Ackermann that he and a friend would help to unload and load at the show which is very generous. Just getting down under the car and doing the straps is killer on my neck and shoulder. I have never unloaded from the PITS show.
So I get in line for two surgeries looks like. It kills me to go to the shop and see the Q vert on the rotisserie so close to being ready for color and cannot do the motion of sanding.
Can't mow the grass a foot tall and can't plant garden, sucks.
I do not know if this is same person I helped get some mustang parts fro the US or not? Lost contact with them. Been trying to contact friends in S.A. in the Addo area but having zero luck. Hope they did not get the Covid.
The hood latch on a 72 is different than 73 handle is longer on 73 and I do not know what else.
I would be interested. What else do you have for PW? do you have door harness with door speakers?
