Thank you.

Today I installed a NOS passenger side tail light
Replaced the rusted gate - no time to adjust since it started to rain on me. I will also be taking it off to respray and I'll adjust it at the point. I can finally get to the back again.



Old tires were going flat so I put on BBS 15x7.5 in Volvo pattern and RWD offset. The centers use to be painted gold but someone painted them silver.

few months ago I started to strip the silver but got too lazy. I'll eventually get them media blasted, unless I sell them first


Im also thinking of putting on a Mustang II coilover setup from a different 140 I had. All the suspension on that front cross member is new. I need to get this running first. Rain and no top-post batteries at the local junk yard. I'll just wait

What's going on with the lock cylinder?
There's still sticker residue from the Nixon Now sticker. LOL

So, does the Mustang II coils fit without modification?

Are you talking about how it's at a slant? IDK the original has the same thing happening.

Now, should I shave the rear wiper like the 69 should have ?

It's the obvious that escapes plus that picture kind of sucks

PO enlarged the lower control arm hole and modifed the top of the shock mount, made a bracket that bolts the top of the shock. The bottom of the shock hangs down quite a bit from the lower CA. Just dont hit anything, I guess.

You could probably fabricate a wider shock mount on top and stuff the coilover up further but then you would be messing with the upper CA mounting. If I'm going to use this setup I'll reinforce the lower shock brackets - too thin of a wall IMO

overall I think it's clever and mustang II coilovers are cheap

Thanks for the info, gives me some ideas for that could be done with these shocks.

HA!

I just got my 80 GT running. Only other thing is to finish rebuilding my trucks front suspension, I got it 1/2 done. This car got pulled to the front of my garage. I'm going to check the fuel system and pull the carbs off to clean them. So hopefully by the end of the month I'll be able to show progress

I'll also be rebuilding this tread .. transferring images
