ITS FIXED !!!
« on: May 28, 2016, 09:44:11 AM »
  After & months I got the rear fender FIXED,  though I would post this to show what happens when you have a tire come apart , most of us might have old tires on the car that look good and been on the car for years , and now the speed limit has gone up also and most do not think anything about it , even though I did run over something , (tires were over ten years old too ) it came apart and a mater of a few seconds done this much damage ,  so check your tires and make sure they are good and safe ,  parts like sheet metal are getting very hard to find and will take a long time to locate , have a safe weekend Pinto People  8)

My tires are good looking but old, something to think about because I do drive the interstate.

Now that is one shiny corner on a beautiful car, I can understand you wanting to have the rest of the car blend in.
Wheels and tires is definitely on my agenda too, hope to be able to post something about converting from 13 inch to 15 inch using what's available here in Europe real soon.

 Thanks and very glad to have it up and running , as for tires and wheels over there you still have some of the capris there , same bolt pattern , I also noticed the rear end you just brought has some adapters bolted to the axles , they must have bolted different wheels on the car to do that , the stock mustang two does not come with them , my V6 pinto has the same rear end , if the are just spacers you could run the newer Ford Fiesta wheels , I know they have them over there also , wheel size on my wife's car is 185/60/15 , and it's a 2015 Fiesta , but it FWD , and spacers are a must , here is a photo of it ,  the wheels on my car is 205/60/15 , the rims ar 15 X 7 ,  and last question is are 195/70/R13 still available in your country ??

Blaine, at the moment I'm not looking in the Ford corner for alternative 15 inch wheel's for one important reason, the offset on FWD Ford's is too high, even with spacers. FWD Ford's have ET's higher then 30.
My best guess at the moment is that the original wheels are about ET 0.
If I go back to the Capri and other RWD Ford 13 inch wheels, 175/70/13, 195/60/13 and 205/60/13 tires are available.
When I find my 15 inch solution I'll post about it for sure.

Yes Michael they do keep the mice out of the cars and the house , found out the were getting though a corner of the garage door for the cars , kept on finding dead mice all around the house untel one of the cats brought my wife a live one for a Gift , and dropped it on her when she screamed in bed , after I fix that spot no more dead mice , I work on aircraft and they do get into the wires and chew on them causing all kind of problems , as I say they Cat scan everything I bring home and the only bad thing about a cat is their is NO snooze button for a hungry cat😸
