    Hey Rusty, I've seen your name come up quite a bit in regards to 67-70 Mustang frame dimensions. Could you help me out? I have hopefully a simple question: Do you know what the distance between the datum plane in the side view of the frame dimension blueprint is to the lower control arm mount holes? I have a slight variation side to side and I'm trying to determine which is correct. Thanks!

    One more question Rusty, do you use weld thru primer or just epoxy and seam sealer

    I have been looking at archived articles on the Colt of personality build that you worked on and had a question for you. I know that they minit tubbed the rear end with the goodmark kit and then installed the tci torsion bar setup. However with the track link bars mounting to the outside of the frame rail did they even see any benifit to the mini tub? If so are you aware of the final tire size they were able to run? And im not 100% sure but i think you modified the fender to be more flared, and if so without it did what tire width would they have been able to go with? Thanks in advance! And love your work

    Hey, I wanted to thank you for your suggestion on using SPI epoxy, I didnt realize how close to me they were located. I also had a question for you, I have noticed you seem to cover your cowl vents on a lot of your projects. I am considering covering mine up as well but I keep going back in forth, I will be putting in a modern ac unit which I know covers the fresh air vent on the passenger side but I just keep hearing people say that when you cover up the cowl vents it gets really stuffy in the car. I just wanted your opinions on what the down sides to covering the vents are if there are any. I think you are probably the best person to ask considering you live in a neighboring humid state and you have a lot of experience with this. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

    The hood release is for a 1967 - 1968 Mustang and will be in Modified Mustangs & Fords magazine but I don't know yet what issue.

    You mentioned in one of you threads that you were working on an interior hood latch release for one of the 65 or 66 mustangs you were working on. What magazine will this article be in and do you know what month it will be published in? Thanks. The work at you shop is unbelievable
