Re: Magnus 1965 Fairlane

I really lake the looks of your vinyl cover back parcel tray , mine is just a painted paperboard, I think when I order my interior stuff ( doing that in the next couple weeks ) I will try and get some matching vinyl to do this with mine , YOURS CAME STOCK LIKE THAT ?




My wife stripped the vinyl off the old broken up original paperboard parcel tray. I got a thicker stronger hard board and cut it to shape. She then recovered it

Re: Magnus 1965 Fairlane

Thanks. No the guy's I bought the car from had painted it, converted it to floor-shift, ditched the stock bench for mustang buckets, and had the seats & the parcel tray professionally reupholstered before I bought it. Some of the stuff they really did poorly (like the way they bolted the seats down up front so I fixed some of it. I liked the upholstery on the package tray & wanted to keep it when I added the speakers. It still amazes me though that they even recovered the old one instead of just buying one or making a new one. The hardboard I bought is much tougher than the stuff they made the original ones out of and using the old one for a pattern it was easy to make a new one. If you can follow a line with a jigsaw you may just want to consider making your own.

Re: Magnus 1965 Fairlane

My Fairlane was missing the trim on the lower part of the rear side panels on the interior. I looked for a while & couldnít find it. I had some of the aluminum carpet transition strip and decided to make my own.





Nothing fancy here. Some tin snips, a flap disc on a grinder, a sharpie, and some paper.








A little work and a bit of shaping over the back of my bench vice.








And itís in.







I think I may pop it back out later on and sand the back off to make it slightly shorter so it fits better. But you get the idea.

Re: Magnus 1965 Fairlane

Hi again Magnus, I have a ? about the JL Audio MBT-CRX Universal Marine Bluetooth Audio receiver , So if I understand it right , you have a set of RCA cables run from your Amp in the truck to your console and a RED power wire(what gauge wire) and then a BLUE wire( what gauge wire )any other wires going to the console receiver ?
Your picture of this is gone from your build tread.


I looked up the wiring manual for the MBT-CRX, look like red, blue and black and RCA jack.

Nope it's super easy to wire up. I took the red hot and ran it to the main power fuse in the trunk. (2nd image down next to tire) Since my battery is remote mounted I added a fuse to prevent a big fire if it shorted. It's mounted to the outgoing post on that. It has a fuse near the load that is just under the area that that carpet pieces overlap so I can change it if needed. The blue remote wire runs directly to the main amp and then runs from there to the sub-woofer amp. Both of those wires can be seen in the below pics. All that's left is a ground which is grounded to the frame I built for the console which is itself grounded to the floor of my car. This ground is also what I use for the backup light switch on my shifter. Then it has the 2 RCA cables that run under the carpet to the under the back seat and then into the trunk mounted main amp. There is another set of RCA cables that run from the main amp to the sub-woofer amp for those signals.

Re: Magnus 1965 Fairlane

Very nice fabrication work, so much better than buying something close and making it fit..built not bought, that s the way to do it!

Re: Magnus 1965 Fairlane

So all your other picture in this post are gone ?, could you post a side shot picture of your rear tire, just wondering how much clearance you have between your tire and the front of the fender wheel well outer lip.

Re: Magnus 1965 Fairlane

Old pictures are still on the website but they no longer allow linking (unless you pay a crazy high fee) so I am just going to leave them there until they decide to delete them. Their service is slow & the website sucks anyway. Fairlane by jamescorriveau | Photobucket is the address for the folder if you want to look. Feel free to copy anything you want just don't share without giving me credit.

Here is a picture I took after mass this morning.



I have just over two inches there.

My springs are also 1965 HD 5 leafs springs. They fit on earlier models are exactly like earlier springs & are exactly like earlier springs except they have 5 leafs rather than 4 for a smoother ride, they are the HD units so they are rated 20# heavier each. & being 1965 springs the locating hole is 1/2" further back to bring the wheelbase up to 1965 NASCAR specs of 116". IF you are running into clearance issues I would make sure you got sent the correct 1965 springs. I don't know where you ordered your springs from but 1962-1964 springs will not locate your tire in the same place although they will fit the car. I ordered mine from Eaton Detroit Spring. https://www.eatondetroitspring.com/a.../fairlane-500/
