To be honest, i don't even know where i found the black rubber plug i used. I want to say lowes but most of whats left of my memory says it was something i found in a box in the garage. Normally I woudda left the stock antenna in the hole as I like to keep as much of the original kit that came with the car out of San Jose with the car (not counting power and suspension) but there was a period of time where it was stored outside and the cover wouldnt work over the antenna and stock ones only go so low. My am radio doesnt sound nearly as good as my flowmasters so the antenna went in my box of "Give this stuff to the next owner of the Mustang when I die and you pricks choose not to honor my last request to burry my in my Mustang" stuff.

Sorry...

I was hoping you would put a comment. But, thank you though. I too can't remember everything that I've done to this car or to my 68 that I've sold long time ago.

I think I have decided to what to do with it. I'm tackling it when Sacramento weather decides not to be 200F at sundown. Thank you again.



Daily driver money pit.

*Original T code and C4. On the process of a V8 and Toploader swap. SoT coil over front suspension with Arning drop. Mike Maier leaf springs with Bilstein shocks. Mike Maier shock tower brace. 9" rear end with 3.5 and TrueTrac. SoT front and rear disc brakes. No power steering nor power brakes.

I've searched every drawer at ACE hardware store that would fit. The picture on the first thread is the best I can come up with. I was hoping someone had a 'cleaner' idea other than welding it shut.
