1969-1970 Shelby GT350/500 / Re: Sail Panel Install Question

Cut appox 1 1/2" off of the top excess material where it goes along the back glass. Then peel the vinyl back off the backer board for 2-3 inches all the way around. Re-glue it with spray trim adhesive or contact cement. With plastic trim panel tool or putty knife you can pust the excess under the gasket. Also , hot glue gun the square on the back that holds the clip before you install.  This has worked pretty well in the past.
Good luck

The thing speaks for itself...

I donít know when it happened, but early Shelby ownerís never used to be such judgmental pricks.  From what I can tell the older some of you get, the worse youíve become though.  Perhaps you just feel safe saying whatever you like from the security you afford yourself by being behind your computer screen, a phenomenon that seems to be the new norm since social media has exposed how awful people, especially later life adults, really are.  Itís just odd, because Iím certain that face to face youíd keep your opinions to yourself because youíd be too afraid of the consequences that would come from showing your true self.

Not all of us want to spend thousands of hours to preserve washers and screws.  Iím not making any claims of performing a proper ďrestorationĒ in any authentic or concourse sense.  At the same time, there is a significant effort being made to preserve the integrity of the car so it can easily be returned to stock and restored to its correct original form if I ever desire that in the future.  Every original part from the car is being retained, and every effort has gone into acquiring missing parts for future restoration purposes.  The very limited modifications to the chassis are correctable with relative ease (Iíll need to weld up a small hole or two), but none of that matters if it doesnít fit your opinion of what this car should be Iím sure.

Regardless, itís my car, these are my choices, if you donít like them, please: donít watch the video content, and definitely donít bother asking me about it here or in person if we cross paths at a regional event or a future convention. 

Enjoy the rest of your day.
Wow ,I didn't know being supportive and wishing you success could be taken as such a bad thing. Geez after putting yourself on the internet for all to see and comment on you react to my least harsh yet supportive  commentary then I hope you don't do something very stupid when someone is truly critical.
I guess your right, most of us are "older" , but I doubt any would be so scared of you as to not give their honest opinion when ask... and sometimes when not ask. Get over yourself youngen.

So I was given this plate and this shifter to install in the 69 SCJ Iíve been working on. However , I cannot find two plate holes , threaded or un-threaded that the shifter will line up with. Am I looking at incompatible components? Top loader of course.

I seem to have a mismatch between the Centerforce pieces and the ford clutch arm . Clutch arm is C8OA 7515 B. Throwout bearing is a Centerforce N1493. They are both suppose to be correct , but bearing will not fit the arm. Ive attached a couple of pics. Can anyone explain which is incorrect ?  Thanks !

Yes... probably. I added a short ground from the housing to the decklid bumpers underneath where the nuts are and that helped a lot. Proper flashers and grounds are critical .

Does the SCJ adapter take the same gasket as a regular CJ adapter ?

Thanks !
