  1. I’ve tried 3 different headers so far, I have the 72’ 351C converted to 4 barrel with power steering, AC has been removed , the last set of headers hit the starter - so I need to by a smaller starter?? Additionally I’m swapping EFI. and if I get shorty headers- will that really affect my EFI systems O2 sensor location. Shorty headers will resolve my problems of fitment but really would love to have full length exhaust. Any brands and recommendations are plausible however I’ve bought Flowtech 32118FLT, they hit the starter I’ve tried hooker 6920 headers they are for 67-70 351C but I tried them anyway since I found them cheap, they needed to be bent to fit ... If there’s already a post for this please forward it to me!! Thanks guys have a great day. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I came up on these 2007-2009 Shelby GT500 rims (M-1007 S-1895 )but all four are 18x9.5” I pretty much bartered for, they are beautiful but not sure if I can use them. After reading a few big wheel and rim threads I don’t think it’s possible Other threads have maxed out at 18x9” for the front. But has anyone that I haven’t read about yet been able to get the fronts to that size? I know Large Marge did a staggered 17x9” up front but wasn’t sure if he was making everything out or not... If anyone knows a link please share! [attachment=49634] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

Front and rear shocks, coils, upper and lower control arms, replacement spring perches(new), intake manifold 2 barrel , seatbelts(red), old 8 track radio, vents for cowl, exhaust pipe tips plus rusted pipes , original headers 2 barrel I think they’re d0ze casting (1970), original shifter, air conditioner compressor and brackets, air conditioning cooler , heater blower and vents, dashboard insert for miscellaneous junk, timing chain, pushrods, rockers, lifters, dented original oil pan, oil pump, leaf springs, rear drum brakes plus lug studs, clutch fan, radiator Everything that came off this car I replaced w/ new parts, car was running with these components just old and all the same rusty color , a/c and heater untested , leaf springs sagged an inch, I’m sure there is some good stuff but really could use some valve covers my MT aluminums we’re both cracked and welded and leaked oil so looking for some covers.

  6. Hang on just a cotton pickin finger lickin minute... I cant see jack shit out of my rear glass at the best of times ... I don't think I would notice Angelina Jolie in "Y" shape, fingering herself over my rear tailgate... How in the name of blue F**k can you see anything when the rear glass is covered in plastic? The louvers are metal! All the fingering should be done inside I figured as I was thinking about doing the rear view camera for $20 at least for backing up , as far as changing lanes-good luck everyone else!

  7. Dude, I was cursed with “ I want to do my headliner for $50”. I ended up buying the new seal for the rear windshield, seals for the rain gutters, windlace to hold the headliner, headliner/upholstery glue, window-weld/butyl with a caulking gun , tinting the window, and new trim clips , plus the headliner and sail fins! Finally after all that was ordered I got my headliner in after a week of afternoons. I hear other people saying they tried “tucking the vinyl into the seals but it sounded iffy and I tried tucking with a puddy knife and it wrinkled and started tearing my fabric - the amount of tension I had to pull on the vinyl to flatten all columns and rows of fabric was phenomenal , any bit of slack not held in by the chopped up wind lace would show where tension was needed to wrap around those pinchwelds! I’d second that paint be done first but the heart wants what it wants! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I picked off some rear disc brakes from a mustang restoration shop and he said he was sure they were off an 87-92 SVO? Install went fine on one side however I’m missing a parking brake Clevis shackle , the calipers are Ford stamped with a 2431–C and B with a circle stamped on the calipers. I can’t find any information on them and that means I can’t find the parking brake shackle anywhere! Any ideas on how to go about identifying this? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
