Re: Bowtie468's Extreme '68 BuildPage

A little more progress made. Fed Ex dropped off my master cylinder yesterday, so i'll be able to finish up the brake system.

Also, i decided to color sand the door jambs before i installed the carpet and door weatherstriping. Clearcoat was already slick, i just wanted that extra 5 percent.

Without going in the shop and measuring, i can't remember the actual width of the housing. I just bought the wheels i wanted , with the most backspacing available, and narrowed the housing to fit. Bed floor has been raised 3 inches.

These brakes are Ford Motorsports M2300's Basically, the same system that Currie, Strange and others sell. Also used on 96-02 Explorers. Requires a 2.50" brake offset.

Fuel tank is from Tank's inc. It's a poly unit and holds 14 gallons. It's also set up for an electric in tank pump for future plans.

Re: Bowtie468's Extreme '68 BuildPage

A little more progress to speak of. Mounted the remote tilt release to underside of the seat. Installed carpet and sill plates. Still tossing around ideas as to how i'm going to hide all the wiring. Any thoughts or suggestions, please post away !

Not only does it look good, I can vouch for the fact that his seat is EXTREMELY comfortable too!

Re: Bowtie468's Extreme '68 BuildPage

Amazing build and attention to detail. That brake light is killer as well. How are you going to run your tank filler? I think it would be awesome if you did a roll pan with a license plate bracket that flips up revealing your filler behind the plate. Just an idea, not sure if you already had one planned out for the filler.
