    Thanks... took a chance and ordered a set , they usually put them on Datsun Z's but they look awesome. And fit in very nicely

    Thanks actually bought a 63 valiant front bumper , matches the point in the grill and hood. Since it is so thin, there needs to be a lower valance to cover the front subframe. So I picked up a 69 camaro lower valance and will use the marker lights as blinkers.

    Cheers

    16" rims look so good on your roundbird. Good stuff! How is the spacing between the back of the rim and the balljoints?

    its about a 1/2" away. if you step up to a 17 the rim will clear completely over it

  15. Those early hardtop Falcons are so bitchin'. Excellent choice on the Minilites and the lowered stance is perfect.

    Any new ideas on the front bumper? I kinda like the original one the best, personally.
     
  16. Absolutely beautiful,,you did a great job. HRP

    car looks damned good. I'd advocate for getting rid of the door handles too.

    Thats a killer round bird hard top ! Im trying to decide on final wheel selection myself. Using 5 lug spiders with trim rings on 68 mustang 14" wheels, with 215/60s for now. I did the shelby drop on the upper control arms, and cut 3/4 of a coil out or the springs. Good drivable static drop. Evil....Im looking to mount mirrors like you did. How are they mounted ? Thanx man.

    Pictures take a min. to open, high res photos.

    Shoebox that thing looks like a killer start! Love the grill how did you take out the centers? They are just normal aftermarket driprail mirrors attached to the butterfly window

    Cool on the mirrors Evil. Car did not have a grill when I got it, so I had to build one. If I get it drivable by August, Ill try to make it to Sturbridge. Im not too far away. Dave

    Yea that would be cool! What do you think it would run me in parts to bag my bird? Compressor, manifold, tank, bags etc..... are there brackets available that can be modded for our birds ? I have replaced every component in my front end with new 1965 parts, and have also done the Shelby drop. The rear end is stock 8" with stock springs. Thanx man. Here is a shot of the grille I made. Its 1/2" steel tube welded to three custom brackets that fasten to all the orig. mounting points.

    Depends what bags and system you run accuair is about 2500 and ridetech bags another 900 for the front. But there is cheaper systems out there. Around . 1500 or so. The ridetech shockwaves were nice since they were practically bolt in in the front bolting right to the control arm
