        • I need to check this category out a little more often, what a great resto thread.
          Looks like a ton of work, but it is coming along great and looks fantastic.

                  • Nothing picture worthy, today I was making a reinforcement plate for the trans tunnel where the e-brake handle will bolt to.

                      Mike,
                      I assume you are you planning on using a late model e-brake -- since didn't the OE e-brake handle attach to left lower dash?

                        Yes Ryan, I have the center trans tunnel mounted e-brake handle assembly from a 1987 Mustang.

                        • Yesterday I had 2 new tires mounted on the SS rims & mounted them on the front, this past week I painted a few more pieces, & installed a good used rear bumper I purchased from a member on another forum.

                          • Since rebuilding the steering column back in the summer I have been looking for a nice reasonably priced steering wheel for the 69 Mustang. A member on another forum I belong to offered me an extra steering wheel he had from an 1980's era Bronco/Van/P/U, for my 69 Coupe. He had to do some mods to the back side of the Bronco steering wheel & make a new holder for the turn signal contact plates from my old steering wheel so the bronco steering wheel will work on my Mustang. I like how it looks in my Mustang. Almost looks like one from a 1970 Mustang. I will probably replace the horn pad with an all black one.

                            • Today here in south Jersey it was in the low 40's so I decided to take advantage of the mild day & roll the mustang out of the garage & take a current pic & sweep out the garage.
