Thanks! I like them better than the regular caps on the rear of a car. Also better than no caps!

I got to some more welding and fab today. Fitted some sheetmetal into the portion of fender I cut off the steel tilt frontend, to secure and close the lower drops. Then cut some more and welded a lip on the upper portion to finish that off, and give it some strength.
After that I pulled the gas tank to check it. Of course the pin for the sending unit came off with the plug, so needs a new sending unit. And the gas tank is pretty ugly inside. I looked on Fleabay, and found a replacement tank new for $115, with sending unit, so I just got a new tank instead of messing with the old one, and a sending unit.

Those are ETs. The uni-lugs gave them away. Most of the vintage torq thrust center caps will interchange.

Or maybe it was the "E-T" cast into them! There's lots of caps that interchange, but I'm too cheap to pay $35-$40 for a pair!

Finally figured out what was interfering with my tilt frontend not sitting right. The firewall splash shield extensions that keep crud from splashing into the inner fender areas. I unbolted them today and took them off, and the frontend sits great now!
I also got my brake plumbing and dual master done today. Bought a rebuilt lifetime master for a '68 Mustang for a whopping $18. With an adapter I reconnected the line to the rear, and then got new lines bent up to feed the front wheels. Just need to get brackets tacked to the frame to retain the hoses and she's ready to stop.
Made up a base for the Taurus donor backseat out of plywood and sheetmetal. Laaid the seat on plywppd and traced the edge; then cut it out with a jigswaw. After that I used some old cable tray divider to make up a curved edge to close in under the seat, and a base to run carpet under the seat. Now I just have to pull all the seats again, and do final cleaning, and painting on the floors.

Finishd making master cylinder mount. Aluminum Ford repacement master of some sort. Pinto/Must ii looks like. Factory brake pedal mount is a tube running thru the frame.
had to shorten one side of pedal pivot and add to the other. Managed to save the plastic bushings and re-use. The stock brake pedal/rod, fits like the factory intended. Less clutch pedal assy.

Thanks, but I took a pair off these wheels. I like flat plates on the rear, and caps on the front usually. The rears on these weren't ET caps anyway; they had "P/S" on them, whatever that is?

With my back feeling a little better and the beautiful weather and city wide cleanup tomorrow I opted to clean out and organize the storage unit. Took some pics of parts Im selling and started dismantling the upper portion of the project that is now being sold in parted out portions but had to call it quits. Looked up grille framework and housings and solid piece grilles to go with. Looking at 30 to 40s era long ovalish looks. Not an easy find especially with not wanting an tire front clip. Aldo looked up ideas for tail lights....I dont know a specific route but will know when I see them.

Yard work and mowing.......Downer. Motorcycle ride with my wife.......Upper. Measuring the circumference of my crankshaft pulley so a friend in Florida can make me a degree tape to go on it so I can more accurately measure the timing with this Chevy distributor in my flathead.....Good thing.
