Looking for suggestions on a place that can do this.. and that you have had good luck with the process, and turn around time.

I’d like to put my original speaker back in my car… as part of the car restoration.
It’s in really good shape, I just don’t trust the cone. (Original PN, dates etc)
Thank you

Question: I’ve found 2 difference style switches used for the “pop a way” circuit actuation. 
This switch is actuated when the drivers door is closed. 

The switch used on my car needs to be replaced.  The plunger was damage, so I’m searching for the correct switch. 

Were there different suppliers for this switch?
Or possibly the 67 and 68 Mustang tilt switch is different. 
The following is a photo of my damaged switch.

Any assistance is appreciated.

Looking for suggestions for the orange color to match the original factory markings. 
I do have a good reference for the placement and size of the paint daub.
The orange coloring on my old rusty shock looked almost like a 60’s Chevy Engine.
It’s awkward to think i’d used that color … :-)

I just got my shocks back from a complete rebuild, and l’d like to add the factory ID orange paint marking to complete updates.

Thank you

Seeking suggestions on a chrome process/technique for an original chrome handle dipstick , stamped C7OE-6750-A.
My concern is how to remove the black end cap, and then reinstall it after chroming.
Has anyone had any luck doing this?

Wanted: Looking for a no pits pulley to replace my original.
Any leads are appreciated.
I have been able to locate pulleys, the challenge is to find one that’s a decent core.
I can provide dimensions if you think you have one, but are unsure about the pulley diameters.
Thank you

I’ve sent out the fan clutch for restoration.
It has the correct Ford stamping at the fan mounting OD surface.

The question I have is about the stamping mark on the inner surface of that plate ( see photo )
 Is that the build date? “C119”

Also, were there any other ink printed markings on the cad plated surface near the front spring?
Thank you

In preparation for sending my seat belts out for restoration…inventorying all the pieces, stamping numbers and webbing fabric labels..

I noticed that the shoulder harness tags were
“Manufactured for Shelby- American”, and the rest of the belt tags were “Manufactured for Ford”

Apparently the shoulder belt harness was a Shelby American design.

Looking for the top compression nut for rear mount antenna.
The nut on my antenna was damaged at some point. 
I’m concerned that it was damaged to the point where the rounded off edges are beyond repair.

I’d like to find a good core for rechrome.
Any comments, or leads on finding just the nut are appreciated.
Attached are photos of the antenna mount that highlight the nut fastening hardware.

Thank you

1968 Shelby GT350/500/500KR / Interior Door Handle: restoration question
« on: December 04, 2022, 02:06:32 PM »
Thoughts on rechroming originals Vs going the aftermarket path.

I was inspecting my original handles today, in preparation for taking a batch of parts off to the chrome shop. My handles are beyond just doing a good polish..
I realized there is a roll pin that needs to come out. Best way to do that without damaging the handle is to carefully drill it out using an end mill. Then get the 2 parts chromed and reassemble with a new roll pin.

It’s a little bit of extra work, and cost to have them rechromed.
Worth the effort, or are the best reproductions that good, or just a “semi-decent” copies?

Thank you
