Hi---is there in existence compiled list of parts and or hardware that received Zinc diechromate treatment in either color--Thanks----car in question is 69-SHELBY
one way to start is to get the assy manuals for 1969. Then get the AMK book "guide to Ford fasteners". While not 100 percent fool proof it is pretty close on what Ford calls out in assy manuals finishes. Sometimes you may see a variance of coatings. Also when taking bolts off look at the mating parts. Will pretty much tell you how it was plated. Also I have found things that are electrical seem to be zinc Dych like the wiper motor ground to cowl. Starter solenoid nuts. I found a few variances when tearing apart my Shelby to the Osborne assy manuals and my car was NEVER apart before I did it. Gary

I saw Eastern bolts had a spot at spring Columbus All Ford swap meet. Their entire display consisted of AMK. The prices were higher then I could go online and buy myself. That was about 3 years ago . I don't know if that price difference is the same now. Not all of the bolts are accurate in the AMK bolt kits but that is the next best alternative to chasing down all of the individual bolts yourself and having them re plated etc.
last time I did that(plating) I had about 1200 fasteners done. alt fans, pulleys,Hood hinges,  etc also.  All cataloged. Some of my gold disappeared. Think it was a driver picking up another order getting a 5 finger discount...I was able to replace what was stolen. Of course I had a lot of extras done. Gary

Mr. MacDonald didn't come.
Girls from GR AutoGallery, didn't show up.
Coincidence? I think not.

See who was there: https://shelbyclub.files.wordpress.com/2019/06/report44final.pdf
Thanks for the link John. Gary

1969-1970 Shelby GT350/500 / Re: Radio identification
« on: June 12, 2019, 05:49:52 AM »
Thank for inputs.

Once in place with correct buttons year, is there a different look between 68 and 69 ?
The length of the knob shafts . 69s are longer. Mike(from NM) who owned a dealer installed 69  8 track radio in his 68 GT500KR could never document it so when Tim Lea restored the car I bought the AM 8 track and put it in my 69 428SCJ Mach1 as it came from the factory with one. I measured the shafts and 68s are shorter hence you can put a 69 in a 68 but not vice versa(?). Faces are the same as far as I know when it comes to AM as I got both 68 and 69 AM radios in my cabinet. Gary

Are these no longer available?

https://www.holden.co.uk/p/square_8_foglamp_lucas_licenced_reproduction_

Website says they are in stock but I know nothing about them - never inspected one personally.

From what can be seen from the photo on the website wrong glass, grommet and bolt but I would think the bolt and the glass could switched out.

The threads are different than original Lucas lamps as I had to run a tap though  original nuts to make it work from my memory fro my 68. I think I found 3 different threads for Lucas. Originals, service replacements I bought in 1985  and these reproductions. I think the nuts on these repos are different than the standard nuts that came on my set a decade ago. Gary

I'd say those look like the ones I bought(washers look familiar) but bought a set and they came in a green box. I still have the box so will check after work. Gary

To the best of my knowledge there is no reproduction Lucas lamp, so he has to be referring to the Marchals
They must be gone as I bought brand new Repo Lucas lamps back in the late 2000s for my 68 Shelby. I bought them out of England. 300 bucks a set. Needed original washers though which I made myself out of stainless steel. Gary

Pete, you are referring to the Marchal ones they sell?  Original Lucas lamps can be found On Ebay from time to time. I mean the correct ones with the little black grommet and "ENGLAND" lenses. Usually they are located in England also. I have bought a "few" sets over time(hoarding, LOL). Gary

Usually you see the year, plant and consecutive unit numbers. I just picked up a rebuilt RUG-AE2 and the it reads F151009. No "9" in front of the F that I can see. Here is a pic of my original trans Vin in my GT350

BTW I type in concoursmustang.com/speegle and it gives me a choice of links but i'm sure there is an area on the forum all this links are in?

IF your a member or if join the site there is a Library section with all the articles organized by year and model. Fair amount of items and growing as they get done by members. Other sections of the site members get access to is an area related to assembly plants and plant processes while another is a collection of picture galleries of unrestored cars and related discussions about them.

If you just join it might be a little easier than using a backdoor ;)

Just a thought  ::)
I have been a member since Jan 2015. :). so much info so thanks to pointing me in the right direction(library). Gary
