1967 - 1968 / Re: 67 Decor Group seat side plastic w/chrome
« Last post by Bossbill on Today at 02:09:55 PM »
I borrowed my painter's plastic repair kit. As far as heat repair, the only thing that came close to sticking was the Polycarbonite (PC) stick. And, I wasn't that impressed with it.
For the timeline of plastics used the automotive industry in the early 60s the part is probably a PC or even a PC-ABS.

I think having someone else fix these is a great idea. My driver's side lower panel is not near as bad as I thought (although it is missing some of the rear plastic where the screws are), but some of my seat backs could use some help as well.

Another restorer in the area convinced me to spend my time on stuff I wanted to do and outsource stuff that others did better or faster. He noted that a pro at stainless refinishing could do all of my trim for a reasonable cost leaving me to do fun stuff like building engines! I try to do too much and I need to stop doing that.

Although I thought I saw this topic in another thread, what is the approximate date when Ford (or its vendor) switched to using an additional screw in the top-middle of the plastic seat back? At first I thought a PO did it. Now I think I have a spare seat back with an extra factory hole. Makes me wonder if the lower trim piece and the seat back screw hole additions happened concurrently.

I'm now on my 6th or 7th try at getting ANYONE at the saacforums to answer me when I used the "Contact us" button.
It appears no one is home, the feature is broken or they are ignoring me.

As I mentioned I attended a gathering on Friday, 10/20/17 of the Talladega/Cyclone Spoiler group in Murfreesboro, TN.  It was my first attendance with this group and it was a fun time.  Here are a couple of pictures. There were many very nice cars.

Was Richard Fleener there? I met he and his wife when they lived in SoCal. Had a pair of Cyclone Spoilers, R and M code cars.

You said mostly complete. That includes the born-with complete 390-4V engine, C-6 transmission, rear axle, etc? You scored!

Compared to my 66 this is a clean one owner. The 66 was my learning car. Learned way more than I really wanted too but I found out I really love welding.
Just like I said, have fun, enjoy the experience. Will be a beautiful Mustang when your done. Hmmm, maybe a white rag top instead of black?? ;)

Pictures and description show at least the quarter panels, outer wheel tubs, trunk floors and trunk drops are gone. No pictures of the main or other floors or rockers. Not sure if in your region this is "hardly any rot"   as usual, what is typical and expected is a regional thing and one of the reasons I've always learned to ask if there is ANY rust .......even what a seller might call "normal" since in some parts of the country I've learned that sellers might consider a car that needs full floors, quarters, trunk drops and some other panels as not worth mentioning.   Think at $3500 its a deal but where to go from here is the question since this does not look like its going to be inexpensive.
LOLOL. I knew you'd come back and say something to my post.....LOL, never fails!!! 
He said in his OP, other than a few patches in floor and needing quarters, just surface rust. I'm sure the man is smart enough to see rot in the main chassis and frame railing and assume he would've mentioned it. Just going by what he said.  Carguytroy seems to have been in this situation before and i'm sure he knows what he's up against. He seems to be a pretty smart guy ;)
Good Day, J_Speegle

Ralf, I would find a tag, it also serves as a washer for assembly.

I have a 1969 Parts Manual for "Cars" which includes Fairlane/Torino (but not Mustang...??).  The numbers listed for the mufflers for a 428 are;
Right Side C9OZ-5230-A
Left Side C9OZ-5230- B

Here is a sad Talladega near me (and, of course, not for sale).
