390,

Can't figure out what-where you want to cut....steering struts or shock tower struts? Following should fit but check demensions, ok to 70', after that, "cut to fit?"

A 65 Mustang (Falcon is same) steering strut rod support bracket is $40.

A Mustang export brace for the shock towers, strong as hell and light weight is $40 black, $50 chrome

Any Mustang restore parts house has them, should have a picture on the mustangsunlimited.com site catalog.

tower cuts

Thanks for your reply red 65 the cuts i am after r in the engine bay and they start from about 50mm from the topof the tower and finsh just above the engine mounts the ideal is cuting the wall out sheeting it flat gaing about 4inches a space either side the engine for the headers and sparkplug accessability also then your able to get rid of the old a frame style and fit struts in place for better handleing and braking. and thats about it anyway have a good one.

when I saw the "390" (FE?) in your screen name I wondered if you were trying to fit "a size 12 foot" in a "size 6 shoe".

there is now a pre-cut and weld kit for using the new modular Mustang motors (to wide) but it is about $250? (National Parts Depot)

one thing you may want from a Mustang parts house, the torque boxes will fit ($60?ea). With a 390 the car needs some help...

you know a 351 windsor bolts in, just taller by 2"
