Re: 69 Hood Decal Question

The video is good but he is a pro and did not use any tac fluid. Without it a novice does not stand much of a chance IMO. Buy some Rapid Tac and it will give you a second chance when you make a mistake, it also lets you line things up a little before squeegeeing out the fluid. It took me more than ...

Re: 69 Hood Decal Question

I don't believe the '69 hood stripe was related to the Sport Special.

428CJ's got them, and cars with the 351 Performance Group option got them.

Re: Vin numbers

Thanks again to all that’s had input,i know it’s part of a special order but I’m hoping to know if it was first -last -20th and compare it to the registry as to where it places with the known survivors, I know it probably means nothing it’s just for my own head and it may not even be possible I alw...
