Concours Talk / Re: Grill area black paint
« on: July 05, 2022, 07:54:27 AM »
Thanks Bob and Special.  On the gray, where can I get the correct paint for this along with the grill and rest of the components?  Is there a paint code? and is it flat, gloss, ?????
My car had dark gray under the stone guard overlap on the HL bucket(diff paint process?) and also on the back of the grill. When I bought my car a PO painted the grill black. I took my grill and 1 HL bucket to painter's supply and said my thoughts were dark argent metallic. They mixed that up and put a daub on my bucket area and grill. Pretty much an exact match. I'd go with Ford dark argent metallic but there is also flattener used like what has been mentioned.

Concours Talk / Re: 1969 A/T center console question
« on: July 05, 2022, 07:50:50 AM »
Most of the holes for the console base were welded up at the body shop.  You may have noticed that I am in the process of relocating the holes before I mounted the base.  I figured that I if I have the shift mech in place, I could get a more accurate mounting of the console.  This is when I discovered the clearance (or lack there of) issues.  From the bottom of the dash frame to the top of the console base, it measures 1 1/2" - and that is WITHOUT carpet or underlayment in place
That could be your problem. I can get some measurements off of my car in the next couple of days and my car has the original floors and console holes in it. I can also check out my Mach1's console also.

I have had Hagerty for ever. I did shop them with others and found Hagerty to be competitive with the others. Never had a claim so I dont know how that that would end up. So far so good.
I had 3 claims (really weird happenings on 2 of them in my garage) and the last one my hood molding went aero on a freeway doing 80. Ironically while the claims adjuster was writing an estimate there was a NOS hood molding for BIN 1K on Ebay. 2 days later I called the adjuster and asked as the auction was ending. He said "buy it" as Hagerty was giving me that much for the hood molding in the claim.

Before I'd mount the insert I'd have the console mounted to the tunnel(floor) in the correct position in the old screw holes before trying to mount anything. Are there any screws in the console to the floor? Your pics show no screws mounted.  Original floors with the original screw holes? BTW I have mounted many consoles in 69-70 Mustangs over the decades most being 4 speeds but don't recall if there was a problem with the insert going in place with the shifter mounted completely to the floor. In the pic with the gap can you measure the top of the console to the bottom of the dash where the console goes under the dash so I can compare the gap to the gap on my car? You can also put the woodgrain radio bezel on the dash and compare the gauge over lap on the bezel compared to other pics like Pete's above as a reference on console height.

I have Hagerty and think they are expensive but their claims department is great-if you need them. No hassles. Today is the first day of my 1 year renewal. I wanted to get others but no call backs after leaving info on one, Emailing another with no response. Jumping through hoops on websites for info they wanted I didn't have readily available it didn't pan out but I'm searching even with my renewal.

So with the shifter and bezel mounted the insert should slide over it. Did you take the shifter out of park and shift down to around first or second so you can "slide" the insert over it(no different than a regular Mustang with an automatic console insert).

FYI:  Bob got the correct sending unit. Installed it and his temp gauge is working properly now.

Thanks for the info re Herco adhesive, I was a little slow and now it shows out of stock. Also, unfortunately for me paint, glue etc type products generally won't ship to Australia via Amazon/ebay.....still, we have nice beaches so it's not all bad.

This is the best adhesive in my opinion. Herco makes good stuff too, just not as available as the 3M adhesive.

Thanks Royce. I didn't know it was available in quarts. Any chance you know the shelf life after opening?

Up For Auction / Re: 9F02R480097 on BAT

I guess 1969 428 cobra jets Shelbys are nowhere near the 1968 Cobrajet Shelbys.


You and a few other guys on the forum kick up dust to start discussions on BAT, why not leave these auctions alone? If the car is a fake or completely incorrect in some way by all means chime in, but comments for “discussions sake” just hurts the seller.
Instead of ragging on me why don't you quote the OP who started this topic that leads to auction car discussions? I made an observation and that observation on what closed RNM those 2 days in a row and that disappointed me and ,yes, I KNOW the person who bought the yellow KR after auction..... Don't know if the maroon 69 sold.


I’m not ragging on you, I didn’t think you were being destructive on purpose but maybe you are.
LOL. REALLY? You QUOTE me then say "you and a few other guys.." Maybe you meant others but not by your grammar.  Now if you meant someone else then duly noted. It was my disappointment that the Maroon car didn't bring much more price wise compared to what the yellow 68 KR car sold for(yeah I know what it sold for) or what it was bought for not long ago. I think that maroon GT500 is a really nice car. I know a local guy here who has 150K wrapped up in a maroon 69 4 speed GT500 fresh resto expecting more. I'm sure he was disappointed in the maroon car's final bid price. Have a nice day.

Wanted to Buy / Re: 1969 Hood safety catch
« on: June 30, 2022, 12:10:56 PM »
If you are talking about the bar that attaches to the hood (I believe this is correct) I think you will find 69 and 70 are a little bit different shape and finish (they are standard mustang).   ;)   :)

yes they are as you mentioned. hood latch strikers: https://www.deadnutson.com/1969-70-factoids-1/

1969-1970 Shelby GT350/500 / Re: 1970 GT500 gauges
« on: June 30, 2022, 07:31:22 AM »
Re the fuel gauge, I also have a 70 GT500 and mine stopped working, took the sender unit out and found the problem was in the float which had developed a small fracture, this caused the float to fill up with fuel so being weighted down would read empty, had the original repaired and all is good, hope this helps.
Since for a few years now both my "69" cars the gauge/sending unit system didn't work. Easy way to isolate my problem is that I took a good one and plugged it into the wire and grounded it. Set my float hanging down with the ignition on. went to full. So an issue with both sending units. Bought new repo units. Installed one in my Mach1 last summer. Tested it first off of the Shelby. It works good. The new repo I put in my Mach1 worked when taken out and tested(float issue?). Either way I boxed it up and put it on a shelf. Now a few weeks  I take the one out of my Shelby. Tested it and it worked(float issue(?) and had a plastic float). I put a new repo one in it I bought last summer with a brass float. I put exactly 10 gallons in it and it didn't even read to the 1/2 line so repo junk is off but works. I will be searching for original ones in my attic and send out to Desert auto to rebuild or buy one of theirs. Tired of fuel gauge problems...BTW my Shelby's unit "stuck" at just below a 1/4 tank causing me to run out of gas(infrequent use of the car a few years ago I didn't notice the issue) on a busy freeway in 95 degree heat.
