Any suggestions on where to get a the best reproduction or an NOS hose with a site glass? Also, would an NOS hose be worthwhile as old as it would be?

Can somebody help me with what the finish is the adjustable Idler pulley?
Build date 1/9/1969. Also, is the site glass on the AC hose always built into the hose? I got a hose from Classic Auto Air and realized it didnít have the site glass.
Thank you

I got the round clips in a set of attachment hardware but NPD has the individual round ones part # #382930-SA
They also have the one Iíve been looking for that I couldnít find until I looked for the round one parts # 382239-S
shelbymann1970 is that long clip in your second picture the same as the long clip in my picture and on your picture of the 70 Mustang?  I canít see from your second picture where that long clip bolts up to?
Thanks

Thanks guys, any pictures of where they both mount on a Shelby will be appreciated. Special Ed, these are new pigtails but in looking at the originals they were just the standard 69 2 light 4 wires with the high beam wires cut off and wrapped with the black tape. I just want to make sure I put them in the right place and I am missing one of the long ones and am trying to find one, I have found one at NPD, Dead Nuts or CJP. Any suggestions would be helpful.

Trying to figure out where these headlight wiring retainers attach, see attached pictures. I know the small retainer is correct as one each were on the original Wiring pigtail but I found one of these long retainers and am wondering if itís correct and if there is one on each side and where do all of them attach? Iím not seeing anything in the Shelby specific parts addendum or the Mustang Assembly manuals from Osborn. Any and all pictures appreciated.  If the long retainer is correct any suggestion as to who has them would be appreciated , Iíve looked at NPD, CJP and Dead Nuts On with no luck.
Thank you.

Thanks everybody,thatís what I was thinking Bob, if the front end is painted off the car that bolt would come from a parts bin and not be painted.

Thank you, that makes me think the bolts arenít painted.

1969 Lower Front Fender bolts (2) on each side, painted or not?
I know the Shelby front end is painted off the car but when it is put on the body are these 2 bolts on each lower side of the fender reused bolts from the original front end or did they even have a front end when shipped for final assembly and new bolts were used? Pictures included.
Thank you

Thanks Bob, I got those coming from AMK but I couldnít find anything from them on the rectangular keepers. We found an exact replacement at ACE Hardware.

Anyone know how the Headlight ring is finished?
They donít appear to have any kind of coating on them but I didnít know if they should be polished to some extent
Picture of my original.
Thank you

Thanks Guys! I had a couple of those that were broken with a square nut holding it down. A friend took the old one to  an ACE Hardware  store and found an exact match for them.

The top piece of the grill is a right angle steel piece that has threaded studs to attach the grill mesh to it. Any one have pictures of original nuts and washers as well as know if they are painted the same as the grill or left unfinished?
Iíve gone through the Shelby Special parts addendum and AMKís list of attachment hardware and have found everything to attach the front end except for those fasteners. Iím attaching pictures but the nuts that I have are ordinary square nuts with assorted scrap pieces of broken clips and washers to hold everything together.
