  1. Another alternative is to go too Joe's classic radio (https://www.joesclassiccarradio.com/Resto.html) and have your old radio upgraded. He will use your current radio face and box, though out the guts and replace with a model AM/FM radio. You can have blue tooth added as well. I did this and was very satisfied with the result. You have the stock look with modern electronics and nobody needs to know....
  2. Thanks for the info re. the mustang. I looked at them and they are close but the one we need does not have that ridge on the top so don't think I want to temp fate and buy one to try. I'm not that desperate (yet)... BTW, I found a lot of mustang latches for sale on eBay as well. Jim
  3. I need a pair of the aluminum end plates for the dash as well as the center console plate where the heater and air vent adjustments are. Also looking for a functioning lock mechanism for the glove box. If anybody has these part and is willing to sell them please contact me at r3forward@gmail.com or call Jim at 480-544-5025. Thanks,

    Dash Pad

    I have purchased and installed Nastalgics new dash with no issues, it fit perfect. I have another one I would sell for $300 plus shipping. I do not know the source of this older dash pad as I purchased it on eBay years ago. I had one small crack at the glove box that has been repaired and it has been died a lighter beige color than original fawn color. I had problems making it fit on my restoration so just gave up and bought a newer one from Nostalgic. It is still relatively soft and flexible and would be good for somebody willing to take the time to make if fit right. Send me a note at r3forward@gmail.com if you are interested.
  5. On my '63 I also added a jump wire on the switch so the parking lights would remain on when headlights are on. But, I ran the wires for this jumper to a small secondary switch under the dash so I could switch back and forth if desired.
  6. I own a 2007 Avanti built on the Ford Mustang platform. It was involved in the recent airbag recall. I had the driver side airbag changed out two years ago, but they did not have parts for the passenger side at the time. Took the car in today to replace the passenger side and learned that the removable panels on my dash where the airbag is stored were glued in place and could not be removed. Has anybody had this problem? I am wondering if they glued them on in the factory or if some previous owner glued them down. Hard to tell.
