RE: 1969 2+2 427 4 Speed


I'll pick it up on the way to Florida. Something to keep me busy on the balcony overlooking the Gulf.

I actually have a high quality installation kit as well.

Excellent choice. I also vote for redlines (you can get redline radials)


 After I got back off the floor quoting BFG Redlines I went with something else.

$532.87 plus tax each, for wide redlines confuse

If I can't have what I want, at least I will have what I like biggrin

This is what I put on the convertible that Mark owns now.

At this price, they must be old stock.

The fenders are in the rebuild stages 

007a.jpg

New hand made bottoms just like the Converible, four years ago.

005a.jpg

Old parts were heavily patched.

003a.jpg

 

And Just like the convertible, all the rails and inner pieces came off the outer metal becuse of the rust between the pieces 

008a.jpg

The fenders below are from 4 years ago,

004a.jpg

The Ontario fenders on the Converible were in better shape than the B.C. fenders that came with the 2+2.

The convertibles do lead easier lives biggrin

The California based instrument cluster with warning lights, arrived today.

Not as clean as I thought it would be but that's no challenge.

I pulled it apart along with a spare common one.

 

001a.jpg

Cleaned up the face and the lens.

The speed warning shaft hole allows a lot of dust in.

I was very impressed with the warning nob. Cast metal with an allen key set screw !

The outer frame had moister damage with rust stains bleading in on the inner panel.

002a.jpg

Used the panels off the BC unit sent to me by Jerel.

003a.jpg

The clean outer panel (not seen) got a light coat of Tremclad to prevent future rust.

Interesting to see these together.

004a.jpg005a.jpg

I found out what is probably wrong with the cluster on the white car.

The two plastic layers on the wire sheet have come apart on this one causing the wires to cross.

006a.jpg

I will be digging out my other clusters and looking for two good sheets.

They are amaizingly identical.

If not, I will be carefully reparing this.

The nice part about the lenes is the only difference is a drilled hole.

008a.jpg

I will be seeking out my best lens and using it.

The circuit boards are the same as 1970, I might have a spare one.

 Soon, my winter guest, 1967 Grand Prix, will be going home and I will have access to the boxes with clusters from Mark, Howard and Jerel.

I will let you know.

Thanks

I can't thank Eric enough for supplying me with the front disc brake parts !

I cheapen out on the tires but tires are easily replicable later.

The stuff like the spindles are hopefully a one-time shot.

I took the parts to a guy who does not car parts anymore and said "please"

This is what I got.

Blasted and powder coated.

The last dirty job !

The differential will be heading off soon to be cleaned up.

That carrier just will not come out.

Decided to stop for the day.

I pulled the carrier out of a 12 bolt a couple years ago, and yes it took a big pry bar to get it out. I'm still building up the courage to put the posi carrier in.

Randy, a big bar into the opening from the top of the housing, and one from the bottom of the housing into the opening and it will come out.

And some gentle persuasion.

Out now wink

I used my cherry picker and lifted it up with a strap so both sides of the differential were just off the jack stands.

The gently tapped on the housing and it popped out.

Two spacers on one side and one spacer on the other.

A man without a steel plate in his arm, may have been able to remove it the traditional way biggrin

 Good stuff.  Now imagine how much fun it will be putting it back in.

They are easier to put back in if the diff is on jack stands with the snout facing down. The weight of the loaded carrier makes it want to go back in! 

Randy, does it still have the original cast iron shim on each side?
