BOSS 302 General Discussion / Re: Tail light bolt covers

Maybe this will save Bob the effort if not it can just add to the examples shared here in the thread. But here is a shot of the area on one 70

Ignore the arrows since this picture was originally posted for another discussion.

Covers are black rubber though they have some age and due to the digit camera don't look that way in the picture

Hope this helps





Close up of the larger one





While we're in the neighbor hood here is a shot of the screw protectors (sorry this is a torn example that appears to have been struck at some point) at the forward area of the trunk




70 Spoiler stud covers/protectors mentioned above




With the side marker stud covers this leaves us only with the luggage protector strip that covers the pinch weld between the inner and outer wheel houses on the driver side.





If you have a California emissions car then the cover is a section of pinch windlacing similar to what is used on the interior of a car.




 

Again hope this helps the discussion

Dana,
Good suggestion for the California crowd. But our Canadian west Coast, our Montana, our Idaho, friends don't necessarily like  driving to the other side of the California state line. It is 1048 miles Vancouver, Canada to Monterey California, the Monterey historical are a great event. However we'd be competing with the IMSA crowd for  our own attention. But we're looking for something more BOSS specific. Not really necessary to be someone's side show battling for hotel space.

"what does the CA state line have to do with anything, have you a warrant here?  8)  Sounds disingenuous, at best...."

Jerk.

Sorry to have offended you, John.

Off Topic Posts / 1964 1/2 Mustang Electrical Issue
« Last post by WantA70Boss on Today at 10:36:37 am »
Just wondering if anyone has experienced this at all on 64 1/2 or early mustangs.  When I use the right turn signal the front and rear right lights will flash but it will also flash the left front and rear but dimmed some.  When I use left signal I have no issues.  The guy I purchased the car from says he had the front section of the harness replaced (firewall forward) and rear section replaced.  After looking at the electrical drawings I thought the turn signal switch could be causing this problem.  Replaced turn signal switch and still have the same result.  Paul

The grey stud protectors found on rear side marker lamps were not used on the tail lamp studs. The tail lamp top upper stud used a black rubber (vacuum
 hose type) protector. The screw between the inner tail lamp studs used a black plastic pointed screw protector. I'll take a picture later today.

Hemmings Motor news 8/18 Tasca's Big Bad Boss. Per Randy Roberts who did the restoration the side vents were filled as Shinoda was not a fan of the side vents, apparently he had direct input on the finishing of the car and directed Schedlik to fill them. In 69 the paint job was almost the cost of a Mach I CJ at $3400. Apparently the original engine was put into a Maverick and Brent was lucky enough to find a 494 block to complete the restoration. Highly recommended article and very informative.

Found the answer, thanks for all the help. The side vents were filled as Larry Shinoda was not a fan of the vents and it appears he oversaw the finishing of the body as well as the paint job, Schedlik's budget $3400 in 69 almost the price of a Mach I CJ. The download won't load. Hemmings 8/18 Big Bad Boss gets you to the article which is very comprehensive, both the Tasca history and a very detailed description of how Brent acquired the car right thru the Randy Roberts restoration. Apparently the original engine was put into a Maverick and Brent was lucky enough to find a 494 block. Very interesting story.

The tail light bolt covers that were the subject of this thread are different than the ones used on the marker lights. In addition, cars with a rear spoiler had covers on their attaching bolts as well. Neither of them are the same pieces as were used on the marker lights.
