'65 GT Fastback - headlights, interior paint - First Post!
I'm joining the club to help my dad out on his car - we've had this '65 fastback 289 4-speed for about 31 years. Pop estimates he's put roughly 80k miles on it in that time. When he was still working, he'd commute in it occasionally. He takes it out fairly often, and we drive it from Long Island, NY up to Lime Rock Park in Northern CT and to the Goodguys show upstate. It's a driver and that's how we like it.
So, on the subject of driving - in the dark - I'm looking for some good tips on upgrading the headlights. I've seen some kits that range from $40 to over $150, with spotty reviews. Personally, I'm not a big fan of the popular options with clear lenses, aesthetically. I've heard of some that would simply allow us to plug in modern H4 bulbs. Has anyone tried those? Any issues with the wiring? I'll take any feedback I can get.
Question 2: We're looking for the correct type of paint for the inner door panels. Along the top, where you'd rest your arm, there's sort of a bumpy texture to paint and we don't know how to replicate that.
This looks like a great site for Mustang guys, happy to have found it.
