Well, Saturday started out like any other Saturday...

Backed the mustang out of the shed:


Sky looked nice and blue!



So down came the roof:


and off for a litte drive to my local mustang parts supplier:






Since the weather was nice, I then kept driving....

and met up with ozbilt. Since he had a spare hood lying around, we thought it would look pretty cool on the convertible. so on it went!

But we all know that with cars this age, things don't necessarily go straight on. So the front fenders were aligned, hardware screws replaced with correct bolts, and a loose headlight bucket was beaten into shape and realigned.






Ozbilt weaved his magic and the dents in the tops of the fenders disappeared, and the dent around the LH indicator also straightened up!

So, with all these fancy holes in the hood... what should we do?

Fill them of course!







The twist locks also requires supporting hardware:

It wouldn't be the ranch without visitors...

Hybrid helped bolt the front back together:

Next on the list.... is a cover to go between the grille and the radiator support panel. Unfortunately, as mine is an A/C car that will continue to have A/C, some mods were required.





Also the holes didn't align up:


Horns were relocated:

Then it was getting closer to fit:


And with two extra bolts added to the radiator support panel, and a special bracket to hold the front down to the latch, we were in business!!

Wow!


Moe was very happy, and at ozbilt's suggestion, a quick fluid check found the power steering was down a bit.

A big thanks to Ozbilt and Mrs Ozbilt for their time and hospitality, Harry for sticking his nose in, Hybrid for popping in, and lastly, the goat for providing some light entertainment.

Then it was back on the road for the quick trip home (Topless of course Wink2 ...)

Good report. Glad Harry was able to sneak into a photo.
So when are you cutting 3/4 of a coil from the front to lower it just a tad in the front?


I will someday think of something clever to say.

Will need to do some more work with the front end (after discussions wiht oz, shim the upper control arm) and a few other tweaks to make it more enjoyable on the open road; will address the springs then. Could always remove the urethane spring insulators to get it to drop a bit.

Yep, that would be my suggestion. Some inner tube to replace them ..... Like
