So I have spent most of my time working on lighting. I was just going to replace the low beam lights, keep the John deer centers, and worry about them later when I had more funds. Well, that didnt work. Come to find out, the 69 has 4 headlight buckets, a different part umber for each light. I had two, 1 high and one low. Damnit..... Found a deal on ebay getting all 4 and rings. Let me tell you, those headlight springs... suck. like majorly. In fact, I didnt use them, I used a Zip tie. Seems to work great and you cant even see them. Of course, I dont have the outer or inner trim rings, that will have to be a future purchase. Just waiting on my new adjuster kits to show up, because, yeah, all mine blow.
Also, I bought the correct front parking lamps. When I went to put them in, (go figure, something is wrong....) the driver side lamp was hitting the bracket. Now my bumper is held on by only this bracket. The long arm ones, Mustang Bumper Bracket Front Outer Driver Side 1969-1970
, my car does not have. So the previous owner decided to tac weld this in place wrong (lol). So I will need to sort that out at a later date. In the mean time, I got these:
JDM LED Amber White Lamp DRL Grille Light Fit Ford F150 F250 F350 F450SVT Raptor | eBay
And put them in hole in the lower valance until I can get things sorted out. Pretty neat, I think they turned out well.
I wired the turn signal to the White. I also changed the headlight switch so the ambers stay on with the headlights
Got new LED's in the taillight housings. Have said housings now secured with the correct hardware and added some license plate lights
The License plate lights turned out great. A LOT cheaper than a factory one and I didnt have to modify anything. These are the ones I got: 2X White LED SMD Motorcycle Car License Plate Screw Bolt Light Lamp Bulb 12V | eBay
New LED Dash lights
I hated the horse emblem they put on the side of the car. Got it off, and of course it was a pin on emblem. Replaced it with this, thought it was a major improvement on the cheap.
New 1pcs Car Sticker Emblem Badge Deal Power Logo for Ford Fox Mondeo Mustang | eBay
And finally, I got one of the door panels all sorted out. Still needs armrest.
The passenger window has one of the glue in's off. I REALLY don't want to mess with that until winter. Trying to see if I can jimmy it when I would need to. I'm willing to bet it has the wrong weather stripping in it because in the drivers door don't "seal" all that well. Well, that's it for now.
