    When you instsalled the total control subframe connectors how close did they come to the floor pan? i just got a set andnwhen the front is forced all the way up to the floor then try and push the back all the way up they hit the foor pans before they are all the way up in position? I replaced my floor pans witrh aftermarket panels but figured everything was in position since the were clamped to rear torg box and front frame rail. I guess while it was clamped in placi could have possible forced the middle up som without screwing up the fit in front and rear.

    They hit. We marked the area where the hit and used a hammer on the floor pan

    The left vent window would not fit so Brian had to drill out the spot welds and bend the sheetmetal a little to allow the vent window to go in.



    The bracket on the inside of the door where the bottom of the vent window attaches was in the wrong place and had to be moved

    wow...great job! only thing is that despite the costs there is still a lot of modification needed to get it right....But I think the end result will be very nice (and rust free!!)

    We went to install the brake pedal and steering column bracket and it would not fit. The dash was installed wrong and had to be moved toward the firewall the bracket was 1" to short from lining up. We compared the distance from the dash to the firewall on my 68 Coupe to determine the dash was in wrong.

    Default Mustang gaps

    Nice gaps. Even with the new Dynacorn shell it's not bad. I have had my fair share of Stangs and they never fit well. 65 grills on a 64 1/2 and such. And the dreaded cowl to fender gap. If my memory serves me that was never a good fitting line-up location. When the inner fender bolt never lined up at the A pillar and you would have to elongate the hole for proper alignment. Great job, your team gets it done and executes well.

    Something fits with just a little modification

    The taillights fit after trimming the rubber seal a little



    Once the holes on the fenders were elongated the headlight buckets fit



    The amazing thing was after all the work on the door gaps the edge of the hood lined up with both headlight buckets from CJ Pony Parts. The Dynacorn headlight buckets have been on back order for over a month and I was told probably another two months before they would be available so we got them from CJ's. They are a little ripply and will require some blocking but they fit.

    We have been working on a couple of things I can't show at this time. A modified lower front valance and a future story in Modified Mustangs & Fords magazine showing a period correct looking hood latch with an under the dash hood release.

    But I can show this

    Those grinding marks look very familiar

    Glad to see you're making progress. Keep it up!

    This is what Brian has been fabricating. It is an under the dash hood release. The hood required a lot of fabrication along with this latch that came off of another Ford. To find out all the details you will have to read the build story in an upcoming issue of Modified Mustangs & Fords magazine.

    Looks like the hood latch off of a 78 - 79 Ford F150. I would think that it would take a bit of work to move the latch assembly from the hood to the rad support. Hope it will be more or less a bolt in as I don't want to ruin new paint.

    Not even close to a bolt in on a 67 - 68. requires a LOT of fabrication on the hood.
