  1. I just did this to mine. The only difference is the handles them selves as stated. But the delux handles will not bolt on to the inside latch. I made an extension for mine to lower the handle to the opening and fastened it to the hole that the standard handle used. Looks and works right. Otherwise you have to tear the latch out to install a delux latch. As far as the delux parts for the panels (wood grain , trim and etc. ) I have an extra set of them just missing one door pull.
  2. I used the eastwood chassis black (satin) in gallon can. I have used it on several cars with very good results. looks as close to factory under hood paint as I have seen. My favorite used to be the DAR 9000 from PPG. But I no longer can afford PPG paints. They were great then cost became so great on their products I switched to the OMNI line. It was OK too but then they came out with shopline. They said at the paint shop it was the same. Well I have had nothing but issues with it. I wont ever use it again! I have painted cars as an armature for 30 years. I have never had the issues I had with the shop line paint. But the paints have changed so much because of laws that were passed we are for the most part just shooting plastics now. I love the look of the new water born paints but it isn't really possible to use it with out special booths.
  3. Welcome from the Black Hills of South Dakota. Hope to see pictures of your car. Very sorry for the terror that has happened in your country. God bless! Don
  4. You are right they make some ford parts but no mustang. I have never bought anything mustang related from AMD. I have used goodmark I know the parts I do buy from AMD seem better on what I have used them on. Also used some junk by the name of Sherman. I wont ever use any again.
  5. The thing to remember about all these shows is that it is entertainment. And simply that. I love it when they set a rebuilt engine in and it starts right up and purrs the first time. I guess some carburetors come with gas already in them lol. I seen a very expensive mopar that was done on grave yard cars. The guy was very disappointed. He made the comment that he had seen tighter gaps on a 70 year old hooker. They do have some good information on some of the shows but even that isn't quite true at times. But like most people I watch the car shows because I love seeing the cars. Bitchin rides is my favorite because they do so many different cars. My 2 cents only of coarse lol.
  6. Well out of the choices I like AMD better than dynacorn or goodmark. And they will work fine. Just a little more work getting them to line up and the gaps to be even. I got some front fenders and hood for a Camaro and never was happy with the fit no matter what I tried. I bought a pair for a 68 charger and the marker light holes were stamped in the wrong place. I think it is just hit and miss. But take your time and tweak here and there and you will be fine. I haven't gotten any for a 71-73 mustang they might be perfect you just never know. Good luck and if you get them it is good to let people know of any issues. Thanks Don
  7. I can say after using AMD and some dynacorn products on several builds that none of the after market parts fit as well as originals do. But with a little work they will work very well. Some times they need a little shaping and the lines don't always match perfect. But it is better than nothing if it is all you can get.
  8. Welcome from the Black Hills of South Dakota! You found a great site!
  9. Thanks, awesome to hear! This makes them fun too but no single tire on fire here! DANG! That looks serious. I would really like to hear that thing run...any videos??? I will have to see if I can get one. I have never done one but the wife has a camera that will. It is just stupid fast. I have changed the rear end ratio 3 times now. I started with a 410 couldn't keep it on the road. Step on it at almost any speed you wind up in the ditch. So went to a 391 and the same result. I went all the way to a 350 now and it will still break them loose at 40 mph. But manageable lol. Thanks Don
  10. Yea the scoop isn't just a statement. I had to put it on because of the weiand tunnel ram. It only clears the carbs by about 1 1/2 inches. And I didn't want them sticking out into the elements. White letters might be cool. I kind of want that pro-street look. Wider in the rear and lower profile. You just cant get that look with 15 inch rims. Thanks Don Thank you I have never taken it down a track. 500+ HP and want to make a pro-street out of it now. Wife says it is too nice of car to race. lol Thanks Don
  11. I am considering more modern wheels for a more pro street look. So any suggestions on a tire/wheel look that is pro street with out tubing the car? Not sure what would fit under the back with out going outside the fender wells.
  12. Now with pictures lol always have problems getting them to load. Thanks Don
  13. I have been working to make my car a BA street cruiser instead of a quarter mile car it was going to be. We decided it was too cool to be a race car. So installed delux door panels a nicer steering wheel and a shifter that is more user friendly. Also trying a newer look on the front with modern head lights and a front spoiler.
  14. WOW, wish I had that in my 70 4 speed car instead of that mammoth 351 C. You cant even change the plugs on the drivers side with out lifting the engine! If you were closer I would trade lol. The 351 fits mush better in the bigger bodied mustang. Thanks Don
  15. Thanks for posting the pictures. I don't have FB so couldn't see them. Really quality build for sure! Thanks Don
  16. I had a very positive transaction with street rod mach 1. Very happy with my purchase. A valued forum member. Thanks Don
  17. I agree with going with the 429. The 460 and 429 mount the same but the 429 is shorter stroke and build more HP. As far as suspension I owned a 71 429 CJ and the springs were way bigger but are available. The 71-73 will handle the torque of the big block. Like was said above they were made for it. Also I agree to stay with an auto. The manuals in my opinion aren't as good with the torque of the big block. (again MY opinion ) I have owned both. Welcome and good luck.
  18. Will do Thanks Don WOW but things do rust back there.
  19. I have a 72 351 C that came from a mach and it has that same set up including the washers. 3 to be exact. I date coded my engine and it is a 72. Strange mine would also have 3 washers. The car it came out of was a manual from factory. Maybe these were sloppy and this was a known fix back in the day. I have seen stranger things. lol
  20. Mike, I would just like to know if they have any 66 fairlane body's(2DHT). I would drive back with trailer for the right body that would have the parts I need. Looking for wheel well trim for it as well. Thanks Don
  21. Nice stable of cars. I keep about 8 to 10 myself. Thanks Don
  22. Gauge Cluster-SOLD Clutch set up-SOLD THE CENTER GAUGE SET IS STILL FOR SALE Thanks Don
