When fitting up the front fenders, get some 67 or later L brackets that bolt to the lower bolt of the rear splash panel & has a fender clip in the bottom. Then you drill a hole in the lower part of the fender & that gives you 2 bolts holding the rear lower part of the fender. Also holds it in line with the rocker.

I read that and I was actually amazed, I understood it all !
2 years ago I wouldn't have had a clue what it was about.

Enjoying the thread Shayne.

I have another grand to spend on the mustang...
Hmm what to buy, what to buy.
I'm thinking maybe American autowire harness and export brace, rocker cover & air cleaner pack? Or borgeson steering box kit. Master cylinder and brake lines maybe also have to come soon aswell

Had I not seen the Big McD hit a panel with a piece of wood AND it made it fit better I would never had believed it.

No, but I am in need for an eternal lend of both AF and Metric ratchet spanners Impatient

Anywho, I'm ordering an export brace and monte-carlo bar soon.
Does anyone know if the export brace goes on before or after the motor goes in?

I used BC classic and performance on ebay, they had cheap prices on bars and braces and cheap shipping.

If you are playing with the front fenders & want wheel clearance (especially if doing the suspension mods in the Tech Section) then it would be a good idea if you reshaped the fender as this one is marked .......



Another good idea for strength is to "roll & wire" the edges. Simple process & gives great edge strength along with an edge that will not cut a tyre. I use 3mm soft fencing wire.

Cutting on that line .....



Ready to roll edge with wire .....









Finished edge ...

Wholy shit Kerry, You're game. That cutting scares me!
Is that to give the wheel a more central look whilst maintaining plenty of caster?

No, to stop the tyre catching the front of the arch. Especially when running wide tyres.

I started doing the fender arch change (without the wired edge) back in the late 60's on the production racing Falcons. All those cars were cheaters back in the day & we did the mod so it would not be apparent to the scrutineers.

I've got some bling for the engine bay.
I've got this A/C firewall bulkhead, it nicely fits over the factory A/C plate and looks pretty good.


And this chrome booster and master cylinder
