  1. have you seen the movie FLASH OF GENIUS ? Its the true story about how ford got the intermediate wipers for the mustang great movie and good shots of mustangs
  2. ok i looked up the original owner in the US white pages and gave him a call, found out at around 8pm my time in Australia its around 2am in LA LOL. the original owner passed away 2yrs ago but i got hold of his son and he has lots of history on my car complete with photos. and the best thing that i find amazing is that the original owner was a Filipino and my wife is also Filipino so we had a lot to talk about the call lasted for around a hour (not happy about the phone bill lol). ill up date you all when i get the history on my pride and joy.
  3. thanks for all the help guys i did a little ringing around and had no luck then i got bored and did a search on eBay for the 1000th time and bingo i found a bag of them for $16 AU here in Australia so all my problem are solved. once again thanks
  4. the problem with soda blasting is it only removes the paint it will not remove surface rust that is under your paint. the guy doing the job will primer your beast before you pic it up and you may not know about the surface rust until its to late. stripping is the way to go
