Re: Detroit area 1969 base convertible

I'm pretty excited by the custom interior pieces I picked up today! I had the door panels and rear seats custom covered to match my Recaro Sport seats in black vinyl and synthetic suede.

I installed my modified Maier Racing one piece export brace tonight too. It needed MAJOR modification to fit my car-front bar had to be removed to clear MSD distributor, back panel near firewall didn't clear fasteners, and it was greyish purple metalflake. Cut and modified it then had it stripped an...

Re: 1970 Passenger Side Sport Mirror Install / Riv-Nut Install

Mirror installed and looks great! The installation kit I picked up at NPD (17696-4AK) was different than that shown in the video. It only had a single large nut that went over the threads and the SHCS (bolt) was shorter. I used some black RTV in the hole before setting in the Riv-nut then put the bo...

Re: 1970 Passenger Side Sport Mirror Install / Riv-Nut Install

Thanks for this thread! I started the install process on my '69 tonight. Covered the area with painters tape, laid out the holes and hit them with the center punch. Had plans this evening but will try and finish install and post pics tomorrow.
