Re: 69 cyclone

Looking Good Kooter!

Does this car have power disk brakes?

Reason I'm asking - my clutch pedal sits a bit higher than the brake pedal and I'm wondering if that has anything to do with it.

Keep up the good work!

Re: 69 cyclone

yes this does have power disc brakes and my clutch pedal sits about 1" higher then the brake also. before I took it apart it was 3"higher then the brake.turned out the bottoming bracket somewhere down the line had been broken and re welded.apparently in the wrong spot.so I bought another clutch pedal and restored it and added a new bottoming rubber bumper,which was missing in the first place.now everything sits nice.i believe they should sit about 1" higher,as they were made this way.

Re: 69 cyclone

finished seam sealing the new floors and trunk seams ,put a good heavy coat of high solids primer throughout the whole inside of the car.lightly sanded and cleaned everything and shot it with two good coats of red urethane paint.not quite the factory candyapple red paint as the exterior,but close enough for something you will never see.and 1/4 the price.but everything smells nice and clean now,no tar or mouse crap. lol

Re: 69 cyclone

Re: 69 cyclone

before the fenders were back on I ran all cnc stainless steel brake lines and fuel lines with a new master cylinder and rebuilt brake booster,looks great.also went thru the engine with a upgrade to a edelbrock f427 aluminum intake.wow what a weight difference between the cast one.also engine back in and detailed,just waiting for my aluminum cj covers to be polished,and a plug wire change and the engine should be done.

Re: 69 cyclone

its come down to body work and finishing now.we started filling and block sanding and priming with high solids over and over.getting these huge panels straight is tedious and time consuming.pics look like a lot of filler but most comes off during the blocking process.

Re: 69 cyclone

even something as easy as the factory hood scoop should be a simple fix right? wrong! pieces broken on edge and cracks in the fiberglass upon further inspection.lots more work ahead again.after many hours work it turned out exc.proabably straighter then originaly.actualy found the orig scoop studs on ebay,they fit great.

Re: 69 cyclone

finally finished the blocking process,as good as I could do it,and one final heavy coat of high solids primer,and its off to the body shop for finalizing and paint.thats if I can find a good shop in my area for paint. also tried on the new magnum 500s and bfg radial ta,s for size and they look great. I decided to reuse the pot metal rear deck lid spoiler I got on the car when I bought it,even if its not correct for the car.i think it looks factory and all the body lines line up with it. I have no idea what it actually is off of,
