    The top where the windshield meets the frame is rusting and my auto body shop says they wont be able to fix it, that the frame will have to be replaced. So where can I find one? I really hate to go used and the shop found one online, however I can not for the life of me find one myself, has...

    My 69 coupe was in a accident. the passenger side of the front has been pushed up and to the right. i have been told straightening is out of the question because the frame rail has been patched with steel plate and if pulled the welds wouyld snap. I was wondering what the cost for a shop to cut...

    Does anyone make aftermarket convertable top frame parts? Both front pivot points on this car are broken and I would like to just replace the cheaply made part with something higher quality. OR do i have to go junkyard for another weak frame?

    While my car is all in pieces i want to check the frame alignment. Does anyone know what the frame measurments are? Back when i worked for the Big C we had manuals that listed the dimensions and the locations to measure from. Any one know if ford does this? i would have to think all cars have...

    Picked up a bumper support today off a 91 LX. was told that it was the same as a 93 LX. The Support is fiberglass with 4 bolt holes for each mount. my car has 2. Did i not get all the parts or are they really different?

    it may be a crazy idea but i think it has been rarely done :shiny: i got in a front end wreck with my 1998 mustang a couple of fridays ago (air in my brake lines) and most of my front end was destroyed in the wreck (didnt touch the engine, phew). i was thinking while i was having my car towed...

    on my '94 mustang, v6 3.8L, i destroyed the front end in a fender bender. i was just wondering, my grill has been pushed inward toward the driver. which caused my serpentine belt to be cut, but i already replaced that, anyway is there anyway i can fix the front frame? or at least fix the hood...

    I need some serious help here so I am turning to you guys. I recently went back to my parents house to pick up my 1966 Convertible. This was my first car and I finally have a place of my own to store it. My dad has been doing minor fixes to it over the years but his latest conquest has got...

    I was wondering if anyone knows what the rubber stopper thing is on the rear frame rail of a 1967 coupe. You can see it right behind th wheel well, it's welded to the frame. What's it's function?
