Thanks Gary,
Today I removed the seats & all the parts I have been storing in the car & applied the first coat of Master Series Silver rust proofing paint.

Default Re: 69 Coupe progress pics

Yesterday after work I was finally able to remove the old strut rod bushings. I pried up on the bushings & cut them with a razor knife so I could get enough angle on them to grind the ends of the sleeve away that were mushroomed over the washers & then with a BFH & a cold chisel a few whacks & they came right out.



I feel like a kid on Christmas morning, expecting new parts coming today & Monday. I have OTR adjustable strut rods, & power disc brake conversion kit coming.

Thanks Stu,
It feels great to be receiving new parts to bolt on instead of what seemed like constantly replacing sheet metal. Street Or Track adjustable strut rods were delivered today.

Today at the Jersey shore was a beautiful day so I applied the second coat of the Master Series Silver paint to the interior.


Shot the heater box with a couple coats of 2K aerosol clear.


Installed the newly detailed used blower motor, blower motor to firewall seal, & the heater box to cowl seal.

Thanks Bruce. So far not very difficult at all, I downloaded the instructions from CSRP's web site & I have been following it. I removed the drum brake parts & backing plate getting it down to the spindle, then install the caliper bracket, dust shield, & after packing the wheel bearings, install the brake rotor & the caliper. I purchased from Tony D Branda Mustang parts a new 68/69 disc brake proportioning valve 1968-1969 Disc Brake Proportion Valve and Distribution Block installed that, then installed the booster & master cylinder as a unit. I ordered new brake lines from Classic Tube & I am just waiting for it to arrive.
