  1. We dropped it off at a real body shop this morning where they are going to take it all apart and put it back together correctly. Including the interior which is all jacked up at the moment. They are also painting the hood graphic. So thanks for the measurements on that!
  2. Looks like a 351 4v 4 bolt main CJ block. interesting.
  3. Damn rackerm, that is so sharp. Man I wish I had one of those too. But I already have 2 project vehicles. My wife would kill me if I got another.
  4. WOW! mach71351c that looks great. I have been dealing with my other cars this week. You know how it goes, when 1 breaks they all break. My bronco has been down for a few months and ive been dragging my feet on working on it due to working on the mustang. Now my Durango lower ball joint decided to take a shit on me and its down till i can save up money to work on it. So I had to get the bronco working asap. I finally got it done last night good enough to drive, but still needs work. Hopefully the stuff to fix it comes in today and I can wrap that up and get back on this part of the musta
  5. Driving it home from the paint shop was interesting. Every car that passed slowed down and looked at it hard.
  6. I have the osborn books on CD. I havnt found where these are mentioned yet. Hopefully someone thats found the nearly correct rivets will chime in.
  7. I found some really small flat head brass rivets. Im going to see if they have steel too. I think they were 1/16" I don't know if thats small enough. Im Going to keep looking. I need to get a caliper and measure them.
  8. Has anyone replaced the weatherstrip guides on the roof seal trim? I see that its riveted on. Any recommendations for rivets? Is there a kit somewhere?
  9. Im really pleased how it turned out. Im slowly but surely working on it bit by bit after work, all day weekends when I can. Im cleaning up the drip rail molding now, lots of fun doing that. Someone suggested WD-40 to clean all the crap off of them. Im going to give that a Try later.
  10. Well its been a long 7 weeks, but the Calypso Coral Stang is out of the paint shop! I have a very long list of things to do now on it. First up, a trip to the body shop to get all the panels aligned and work out the issues with the sports mirrors. Then I can get the decal man over to do the stripes. After that, im putting in a new windshield and rear window. Then were going to paint all the interior pieces. Then it should be ready to drive! It looks so good. Damn!
  11. well my car is almost out of paint. The next thing I want to do is replace the windshield. Looking on NPD and CJP all I see are the cheap non-carlite windshields for the fastback. Do they still make carlite FB windshields? what is everyone using?
  12. @Kilgon THANK YOU SO MUCH! its good to know that drawing wasnt for this part. It kinda looks similar, but I couldnt make heads or tails out of it. Im running a chrome bumper so I need them. I got by the painters place yesterday to look at it and we figured out how to mount it. Im just really curious why the kit only comes with 2 screws when it clearly needs 6. I was uncertain about putting them on since they were grey. I thought, well they must make black ones for black stripe cars and Grey ones for Argent stripe cars. But that assumption was incorrect. According to
  13. well thats something at least. Im going to go check it out in a few. Maybe I can take some pictures on what we decide so maybe someone else will know in the future. Its only on cars with a chrome bumper.
