Next on the agenda is fitting the front fenders, hood, latch, and hinge placement. Then its on to replacing the quarter panels. Starting to see a light at the end of the tunnel!

Boys,
It appears some threads were hacked again today. Looks like some of my stuff was deleted/compromised. I tried to re-post some pictures for everyone, however, it won't let me. Sorry to all of you who are following this thread….Im sure Jeff and Randy have it under control.

This is the 'look' I am going for with the exception of the Boss 429 scoop.

That looks very cool.  And nice modern spin on the 1970 TA-type spoiler with brake ducts.

Scott and ALL,
            Bud Moore DID built a Boss 429 for A/Production racing for a customer.  I was white and built as he did all the T/A Mustangs.  Many have seen the photos.  It looks very much like your post here. 
Very COOL indeed!!

Ed,
Yes I have seen that Boss 429. Very cool indeed. Btw, on my car the front brake cooling will come from the inner headlight buckets, not the front spoiler.

Boys,
Here is another aero trick I am planning to do just like Mickey Thompson did on his Bonneville Mustangs. For you eagle eyes, look at the front valence just below the front bumper….notice anything 'different'?

Not to get off subject but since the A Production B429 was mentioned previously, several years ago there was a CC B429 road race car at the Mid America Ford Meet.  It ran in the Friday Vintage race at Hallett.  Stunning car!!!

The air opening on the front valances on all three M/T Mustangs (built at Holman Moody btw) was filled up to the bumper level.

Never picked up on that before. Has a very clean look. Sure it also helped aerodynamically. Mike G.

So no front air damn / spoiler to get the air out front under the car at speed?

Mickey's cars did not use one. I will be using a Kar-Kraft (Bud Moore) larger front spoiler. Go to the 'General discussion' section and look for the thread "How many '69 versions of the front spoilers?" and you will see my post with the pictures.
