Up For Auction / Re: Mustang FB Restomod gets $330K

They want a certain look, but with a high end modern drivetrain and donít seem to mind paying for the combination.
I understand it, but at the same time, it defies my way of thinking it through.
Thatís life!

JD, 0024 & 0031 both have their original tail light boxes and both are closed ends?

One more addition to the tail light boxes, open or closed ends. Seems more early cars had the boxed ends but not always.

Concours Talk / Ceramic Coating Exhaust Manifolds
« on: August 10, 2021, 11:02:10 AM »
Iím looking into a few options for coating my pair of 289 exhaust manifolds, spray can version Iíve read some use VHT cast iron gray, I spoke to a coating company and they would prep them and ceramic coat in cast iron gray colour, cost is more, but maybe it keeps its colour better? Any thoughts on that ?

Where about s are you Cranmer?

This is not what I expected to read about, Iím truly saddened by the news. I first met Chris at BJ when he was selling 0018 there, he was such a welcoming fellow and full of excitement. I could tell right away of his enthusiasm for these cars as and  for people even more so, I feel fortunate to have known Chris and will remind myself to live each day as he did. Our thoughts and Prayers go out to all his family.

Thatís kind of what I was thinking too, those brake shoes clearly didnít belong too 6S1291
Maybe I should hang on to the front hubs though

Are original 66í front hubs anything unique on a Shelby? I found a package of hubs & rotors in my stash here, that had  been changed out by the previous owner , also The rear brake linings have a wide grove running through the centre about a good 1/4Ē wide, is that a factory deal?

Are the 66í Shelby rotor/hubs the same as 67ís? I have a set of 66ís and they appear to be 2 piece, would that  have been from the factory?

1967 Shelby GT350/500 / Re: GT-350 Valve Covers
« on: April 13, 2021, 02:42:56 PM »
Did you spray an adhesive to the valve cover so it stays with it, just one less piece to make the transition simpler.
 Mine have never leaked from day one. The thing with a lock washer too is you might feel more proned to tighten more to get that washer to compress flat resulting in over tightening the valve cover. I donít think I used them, an alternative would be a flat star washer if your still having issues with bolts backing off.
