65-66 Mustang White Kick Panels

Exact Style 65-66 Mustang White Kick Panels
www.VirginiaClassicMustang.com
Our black exact reproduction kick panels for the Mustangs have been extremely popular and a great improvement over the cheaper reproductions.

We are now proud to announce that this same kick panel is now available in the correct color white for the 65-66 Mustang Fastbacks and Coupes.  We expect the convertible models very soon.

These new kick panels feature the correct texture, proper contours, reinforced screw holes, and correct grain.  These are made by Scott Drake, just like the black ones.  

Another great feature is the gap or lip where these kick panels fit to the pinch weld and windlace.  Check out the picture below, and you will see how this "gap" is wider than the cheaper reproduction for a great fit.

Just the Details...1965 Mustang Restoration

The Mustang's rear end assembly is detailed and ready to be rolled under the car.
www.VirginiaClassicMustang.com

Jeremy at Maple Hill Restoration (www.MapleHillResto.com) has been assembling his 1965 Twilight Turquoise Mustang Convertible and is really making progress.  This is a cool 6 cylinder Mustang convertible with the rare Dagenham 4 speed transmission.  In this post, we will share some pictures as the rear end assembly and some of the pieces on the back of the Mustang goes together.

Boy, is it looking good!!  Check out the captions on the photos for more details.

The Mustang's rear leaf springs have been detailed by matching the markings that were originally found during disassembly.  The light blue paint markings are apparently unique to the 6 cylinder (and, maybe, convertible).
www.VirginiaClassicMustang.com

The leaf springs have a engineering part number of C4ZA 5556N.  This is a designation for the 6 cylinder Mustang Convertible.  The "360" represents to 360th day of the year.  The "E" may have been the manufacturer code, and the "4" is 1964.

65-68 Mustang Windshield Weatherstripping Installation

The surrounding areas on the Mustang are covered and taped to prevent the sealer from getting on those areas.  The windshield molding clips are also installed.
Over the years, one of the most common questions that we receive concerns the installation of a windshield in a 1965-68 Mustang.  Often it is thought that the Windshield Weatherstrip actually seals the glass and prevents any water leaks.  Well, it sort of does, but without the proper sealer and correct installation, it is going to leak.

Jeremy at Maple Hill Restoration (www.MapleHillResto.com) recently installed the windshield in his beautiful Twilight Turquoise '65 Mustang Convertible and supplied us with these great pictures along with his expertise   concerning the installation.

Jeremy also applies sealer around the windshield clip installation hole on the Mustang.  You will note that this is a '65 with the earlier style screw on type clip.

The view from the inside of the Mustang prepared for the windshield installation.

About three tubes of #8509 3M Bedding and Glazing Compound are used to seal the windshield weatherstrip.

One of the key elements needed in the Mustang windshield installation in about 3 tubes of 3M Bedding and Glazing Compound (#8509).  As you can see in the images, this is applied both between the glass and the weatherstrip, but also between the weatherstrip and the body.  This is what really seals the glass from water leaks, not the weatherstrip itself.

Windshield Weatherstrip placed on the Mustang windshield for installation with a string in the groove which will allow the weatherstrip lip to be "pulled" around the windshield frame.  This is done from the interior area of the Mustang.

Rope (String) installed in groove of weatherstrip.  This allows the weatherstrip lip edge to be "pulled" from the inside.

A rope is placed in the "groove" of the weatherstrip and then the weatherstrip is "pulled" in the Mustang.

A bead of sealer is applied around the Mustang windshield frame area.

Another image showing the sealer applied before installation.

The Mustang windshield is placed in the frame of the car, and Jeremy prepares to pull the rope.

As the rope is pulled the Mustang weatherstrip inside lip is pulled towards the inside over the metal edge.

This particular Mustang originally had a clear windshield with a December 1964 (4M) date.  The windshield shown here as an accurately reproduced Carlite logo with the proper markings.  These are available from various suppliers.

After installation, sealer is applied between the glass and the weatherstripping on the Mustang.
Even more sealer (3M Bedding and Glazing Compound) will be applied around the Mustang windshield before the molding is installed.  After the Mustang is fully assembled, it will be water tested, and if a leak is found, more sealer will have to be applied.

That sealer is messy.  Jeremy kind of makes it look easy. :)  If you've never done this, your "messiness" level may be a bit greater!

Excess sealer will be cleaned off.
