it's just that piece of sheet metal that is kinda formed and bolted to the outside strut tower. If I had a picture I could show you. I attempted to do a quick illustration of what it looks like on your picture.
Ok. i know what you mean. That is structural. It kind of ties the tower together. I wouldn't try to go without it.

Found this pic on street or tracks site:


And said this: "Race system installed on a 1965 Mustang.
Optional shock shaft mounted bump stop used enabling removal of outer shock tower cover."

Seems like it would be ok to go without, if they're running without it.

Converted my 94 over to E85 1000cfm Holley Ultra HP carb setup. Rem: these take -8AN fittings rather than the 7/8-20 so plan ahead, unlike me

Forgot just how long it takes to re-prime a mechanical pumped fuel system once drained and using -8AN to RR top draw Fuel Cell and quart filter. Took about a 1/2 hour with required breaks for electrical system/starter to not over work it at 12.5:1 compression. Should have filled float bowls before mounting on car.

Scored an almost brand new set of JBA shorty headers for my '68 off ebay for $175! Stoked!

Also ordered a Modern Driveline crossmember, and I'm looking at picking up a set of ASA Revolution rims. They are 18's, which is bigger than I'd like, but the price is definitely right on them!

Not that I did anything to the car itself (maybe wipe some dust off), but I have been researching tire/wheel combos for the ol gal

Whoa, that was fun!

Fixed a small coolant leak I didn't realize I had. Tightened a couple other bolts while I was looking around and saw some seeping. Then I started her up and added air in the tires while she warmed up. I was going to go for a drive but ended up pulling weeds instead
