    Is that an OEM '69 windshield washer fluid canister?

    Thanks Ryan. I am installing the misc stuff to get ready for next month when I start to re wire the car. The washer bottle is a repro, it is listed on the CJ Pony Parts web site as reproduced from a high quality original style white plastic. It looks exactly like the nasty old OEM part I pulled out, it even has the correct Ford part # stamped on the top like the OEM one did.

    • Yesterday I installed the horns & started test fitting the metal trunk divider panel. Now I have to decide where I want to mount the cooling fan & electric fuel pump relays.

      • Mike,
        Your metal plate looks nice & clean!
        Did you make or buy the metal trunk divider panel?
        Will it interfere with putting the rear seat back in?

        • Thanks Ryan, I purchased it from Mustangs Unlimited. It is not supposed to interfere with putting the rear seat back in, the 2 clips on the front part of the package tray seem to stick out far enough. I just have to decide if I want to use the small screws that come with it or do I want to bolt it in & if I bolt it in will the bolts interfere with the seat install. I did have to modify it a little, the wheel well cut outs were getting hung up on the wheel wells, a little grinding later, problem solved. Also if you look at the pic the passengers side rear package tray retainer clip is off set to the right from the rear seat back retainer clip so I had to notch the panel. The cut off wheel worked great for that.

                Thanks Ryan, I try & do a little bit every day or so depending on how my back feels. My goal is to be able to drive it down the street by its 50th birthday 11/26/2018.

                • Yesterday & today I installed the circuit breakers for the dual cooling fans & ran the wires from the relays to the breakers & then on to the starter solenoid. I also ran the wires to the power wire on the cooling fans.

                    • Today I spent some time out in the garage & installed the EFI system fuel pump relay by the cooling fan relays on the l/s front inner fender panel, insulated both doors using Frost King duct insulation, installed the window guides, & the window regulators. Now when I close the doors it sounds solid.

                      • Today I insulated the inside front section of the r/s quarter panel in front of the wheel well, & the front of the wheel well. I also ordered the AAW harness kit for the Coupe from Summit Racing.
