MUSTANG C-PILLAR FILLER
(Mirror install below)
The '65 Mustang C-Pillar installation is not that difficult
once you realize some simple steps. You will most
likely lose your panels when you first try it, just as I
did, but if you follow these simple steps you should have no
problems. I did 25 drag race cars in one sitting and
did not lose or drop a single panel by following these
simple steps. Review this guide before you attempt to
even remove the panels from the sprue.
NOTE: There are 2 different designs of panels on the
sprue. One is a solid flat panel with rivets.
The other is the factory style louvered panel. I show
the louvered panel installation in my guide.
Set up a clean flat area to work on. Paper towels or
something semi-soft is good so if you do drop a part it
doesn't go flying away. Have some M.E.K. (Methyl Ethyl
Ketone) or other good plastic cement to use. A small

The glue now holds the panel in place.
Apply more glue now (still from the underside) to the front

Set your car body down and let glue setup.
MUSTANG CHROME MIRRORS
The '65 Mustang mirrors are tiny and easy to lose,
but if you follow these simple steps, you'll find the
mirrors extremely easy to install. Review this

LEAVE MIRRORS ON SPRUE! DO
