Horse sence , you stated in post #65 dated 7 / 29 / 13 , that all the interior parts needed were available now from Dynacorn to do a F/B conversion , I have searched the Dynacorn site from top to bottom and I can't find the parts , parts like the water troughs ,floor seat brackets ,inside door pillar piece , ect. can you help ? part #'s or what ever ?
I don't think they are listed on the Dynacorns web site but here they are .
Door frame assembly

Horse sence , I don't mean to be a pain in the neck ,but what vendor are you buying your parts thru ? I called
Dynacorn direct with the part #'s you listed and they couldn't match them up to anything , they said that they were
probably a vendor part #.

I buy my sheet metal through Stang-Aholics Restorations ,talk to Ryan .Dynacorn does not keep their catalog up to date ,they send out update pages to be added to the dealer catalog .Most times they don't even know they have the part unless a dealer can give them the number .They didn't even know they had the door frame in un welded version for the 67 -68

So did it go on Ebay? I missed that post in March. I understand how a year of putting it off because something else needs doing can really take the wind out of the sails on any project. I still have a half done 88 'vert which is getting a v-6 from 4 cyl conversion. But we have new carpet in the house! Good thing my friends are patient.

Unbelievable ...I go to post it on Ebay and get an offer from someone local that meets my asking price .I am going to post it anyway just for grins:D ,and i need to let it run since a friend is posting it for me for a small kick back and he already has it set up.... May get more than my asking price .

Hey Horse Sence, I need to replace both of the front frame rails on my 66. I looks like PO either used them to jack the car up or he ran over a lot of speed bumps. Anyway, they look like hell when you look under the car. How hard is it just to replace the rails and do you have any suggestions on how i should go about it? If required, my brother has a car lift at his place i can use. Thanks

Are you talking about the full frame rails or just the floor supports that go under the front floor ? I wouldn't do it on a lift unless it is very level ,and most lifts are not completely level .Take lots of measurements before you remove any thing . I would support it under the front of the rockers with jack stands and wood blocks to protect them from denting and level the front and back of the car .Drill out all the spot welds at the bottom of the inner fender aprons and the spring towers . I would also run an all thread through the upper control arm holes in the towers ,nutted on both sides of the towers to keep the right distance between the towers . An export brace should also be used to keep the front end square along with a Monty Carlo bar . Do one rail at a time to make sure things stay in place .Check door alignment and fender alignment before you weld anything together .

Ya, just the part under the floor. Is it best to replace the whole thing, or can i just replace the back 12" or so that is all dented? It looks like I can purchase either part from stang-aholics.

That would be the floor supports ,just replace them .You should still level the car and support the front and rockers because the do keep the frame rails in line and the rails could sag when they are removed .
