Thanks everyone for the help. I will work lightly with the tag. I would really like to keep the original. I am thinking it would be best to leave it on the door, so it has the correct pop rivets.

Thank you all.

Thanks Shelbydoug and KR Convertible. Shelbydoug that rear end tag is long gone. Which is a bummer. KR Convertible I bet you are right. He was talking about the door tag.

Thank you guys for the help.

Bob I just reread you response and see where you said silk screen is on the tag. Are you talking tag for the third member. If so that was gone before I bought the car. If not where are you talking? I think someone used the car for autocrossing or light duty track time. Due to other modifications.

Thanks for your help.

Thank you Bob. I looked closer at the dirty one that I took pictures of.  Of course you are right and it is necked down. Same diameter as the one in the car. Now just to figure out which one is the right one for the car. Where on the housing would I find the silk screen? What about the rear axles only having the two recessed holes? Or do I need to look through my stuff to find ones with the three recessed holes? I wish now I had not taken pieces off. I should shoot myself. Thanks again for your help.

PS Any Idea how to get the over spray off without messing up the door tag? I still have to repaint the car. Over spray was done sometime before 1987.

I have had my 68 for many years. Not running. Some of you are going to shoot me for this but in the mid 90's. I took some parts off of it for my race car. The race car was at least a 69 Mach 1. I can not remember if I pulled the rear axle housing.
Is it supposed to have necked down axle tubes or straight. Is the straight one in the pics it? I know the axles only have two recessed holes. But they are 31 spline.
I am trying to get it finished in time for this years SAAC meet in Sonoma.

PS How do you remove the over spray on door tag. Without ruining the door tag.

Does anyone know the length of a Boss 9 upper A-arm? Measured from center of pivot shaft to center of ball joint.

Thanks for the help.

Do we get to run the long course or do we going to have to run the NASCAR course?
Looking forward to the show.
Thanks for all the work to get us there.
