SPACE-SAVER IN­SERTS

Mustang Monthly - - RESTOROUNDUP -

Ihave a Boss 429 trunk de­tail­ing ques­tion. What was the orig­i­nal fin­ish on the in­serts that are used on the trunk floor to mount the space-saver tire and in­fla­tor bot­tle? Also, what was the fin­ish on the mount­ing bolts? Did the bolts have any iden­ti­fi­ca­tion marks? Thanks! John McKay Athens, Ge­or­gia

The orig­i­nal fin­ish on the in­serts is clear cad­mium. The fin­ish on the bolts was bare steel on the “A” logo bolts and phos­phate and oil on the “M”-marked bolts. These were the most com­mon bolts I’ve seen used. The in­serts were in­stalled af­ter the Uni­body was painted. Of­ten re­stor­ers miss this de­tail.
