    Here is a link to my photobucket account which has a lot of pictures.

    If you look at my signature you will find a link to a youtube video of the paint job. There is a great picture of it at the end of the video as they roll it out of the booth and outside for the first time.

    The Brandywine is a much richer color and prettier than the Candy Apple IMO. You can also put a silver base under the Brandywine and change the look to a bit brighter. By changing the base or the number of coats of Candy you will significantly change the look of the car. That is the beauty of HOK paint jobs. The downside is you can't match it if you have repairs to do. It will require a respray of the entire car or the whole side at least.

    I was looking at that color and the hok candy apple red. Do you have any more pics you would care to share?

    Thanks. It is House of Kolor Kandy Brandywine over a gold base. It is stunning in the light and looks like a bing cherry in the shade.

    What paint did you use on your car? It's beautiful.

    I built it out of 1/4" aluminum plate, heims and radius rods. The heims and rods came from Speedway motors.

    I came across a photo of your efi engine bay. What did you do for your export brace? Is that custom built or did you buy one?

    Here is a link to a thread I did on the seat belts. They are aftermarket 3 pt seat belts. Nothing special.
    They are not mounted to the bar. The bar isn't structural and would not make a safe place to mount the brackets for the seat belts.

    I did use the shleby interior kit as a starting point. I had to reshape the panels to fit my 84-93 Mustang Light bar. Not to bad of a job but I ended up having to cover the panels in vinyl afterwards to cover the modifications.

    I would be concerned about the with of the Fox body bar. The bars slide right inside the body but there is only about 1/4" fromt he base of the bar (black area not the bar that runs in the middle) and the quarter windows. If the 65/66 car is any narrower you will have to modify the bar to work.

    Hi there, Searched all over and nothing, so thought I'd cut to the chase and mail you...

    Regarding your roll bar setup... Did you use the 68 shelby kit interior quarter panels? If so, then I should be able to adapt whatever bar you are using per some instructions I found for mounting a 67/68 bar kit into a 66.

    What year is your light bar? There have been a few models over the years.

    Do you have 3 point belts attached to them? Recall the length or model you have?

    thanks, as I said I found a how-to in mounting the shelby bar into a 66, only I want the brake light & I like how the later bars slope/curve much more. I realize it will mean customization (adding tube to the legs like the 68 bar) but I want to buy the closest fit; I'm not sure how much these other bars differ as to the span length, etc.

    And thanks for always adding your thoughtful/helpful comments to the VMF!
