  1. I too bought the Summit Louvers, not fitted them yet, the car took a turn for the worse once i lifted the carpets and now has been off the road a couple of years while I am getting to grips with the very slow restoration.
  2. Item purchased thread closed thanks to Mike at Motorcity Mustang
  3. Hello Great, im happy to clean it up does not take 5 min, Can you message me a price thanks, Shipping would likely be to New Port Richey FL 34652
  4. Thanks This is what I'm after , but of course the Right Hand Side one :)
  5. As the title, I'm looking for the Front (short) inner fender splash shield which attaches to the back of the Radiator Support Panel. RHS. Thanks
  6. I have just done the seal replacement on my Eaton pump, But I do require new lines and now it seems a new steering box :( Being in the UK the problem is going to be the weight of the unit and shipping :(
  7. Wow, just found this thread, great info, just need to get my head around it. My current 71 steering box is leaking fluid out of the top where the locking nut locates and the steering coupler joins onto the splined shaft, looks like its way more complicated than I thought it would be :(
  8. Tried to help a UK fellow Mustang owner last weekend to see if the front frame is out of alignment on his 72 Sportsback. I had printed off the frame diagrams on the wiki, but being a novice the measurements on the diagram were not easy to read? For example 33.90? Well I presume these diagrams were produced in the 1970s so the measurements are not going to be in Metric! So 33 would be 33 inches and 90 being like on a PYE chart? 100 being a full circle= 1 inch?, 25 being a 1/4 of a circle 75 being 3/4 of a circle, so 90 would be almost 1 inch? Is this correct? Now the issue we had is that the lower control arm strut rods we managed to get into the Front Frame crossmember, adjust them to the same thread length but looking at the lower control arms, it seems one is more forward than the other? (The control arm support strut rods are new as are the lower control arms). Are there any better ways (more simple ways) of measuring the frame and checking its straightness prior to fitting the engine? Or even after the engine has been fitted? Trouble is with this particular car it has had new inner fenders already welded in place along with shock tower mounts, and the lower frame rails have been patch welded. The top cowl to front radiator support panel measurements seem to be correct, but its the lower frame rails and Engine crossmember control arm points that concern me? We were both novices but we just could not get to grips with the frame measurements.
  9. Jesus Christ! If that's real, that's frightening! You only have to set fire to a cap full of petrol to see the flash point! Be afraid people, Someone will Die!
  10. LOL currently $58.00 shipped to the UK But Just glad I could find one and think its great when people step up and make parts.
  11. I just ordered one of these from Daniel, Price has gone up a bit but shipped straight away to the UK Contact email : postaldan@msn Cheers Mark.
  12. More updates.... Battery Tray area, mmmmm! When working on the front of the car I came across a piece of tin bolted loosely to the front inner fender area Wonder what that's there for, it did not look original? Holy Sh**t more Holes! I am just bemused and saddened by how much was hidden from me when I bought this car!
  13. So let me update you on the Mig welder I purchased. I had an area under the rear seat that was not too structural so thought I would give the welding a go........ The method I was going to use was to butt weld the panels together (not overlap). it started off OK but sadly I ended up with a few blow through holes and need now to repair the repair. I'm not happy enough to tackle the floor pan yet, after grinding back welds some areas have become too thin so I need to do this again. As I said welding is new to me so this is a learning curve. I did want to go on a welding course but sadly the UK went into lockdown because of Covid, so once restrictions lift I will try and find a course again for thin sheet metal. My welded does take Gas and I am using small bottles of an Argon mix.
