Hello, sorry Guys, been doing house remodeling and haven't been on here.

Yes Arlie, that's my car from 2010, Mustang Roundup.

If anyone else needs a template, I can forward this one on.

Bret,
Mine is in the mail already. Dale should have it by Monday or Tuesday. Is the template you have the one I got from Marty?

Yes Rob, It's the same one.

I should make my own template, so I can forward this on.

Who knows when I'll use it.

I would wait on the speaker holes until you have the ones in hand. I was able to locate and mark them by having an original door speaker in hand and center it in the opening on the grill itself. It was not marked from a door that Ford had cut back in the day. I am confident it is very close if not exact.

Are you putting on deluxe door panels or just doing the grills and such? If you are going to deluxe there is a link that shows how to locate the strap door handle pull on the site. And you will need to buy the bracket.

I just made that bracket for the EXP. A flat piece of steel, trim the ends and then used a brake to fold the two edges up to stiffen...

And I have access to a '68 factory AM/FM car right now, if anyone wants a speaker template. As noted, I'd say its just as easy to just measure and cut to suit the new speaker.

Richard,
I was going suggest that he order the brackets from you!!!! My wife has a friend in Victoria and we know all about the cost of shipping to down under!!! The husband loves Victoria Bitter beer. Not sure that anything called a "bitter" would be to my liking!!! Have you had it??

With Rob it is "all about the beer"!!!!

I can make up a pair if needed. Postage costs...

VB is the Budweiser of Australia (the Aussies don't think so!) a stronger flavour, but still low end mass-consumption beer IMHO. I'd have a XXXX bitter before a VB. Local Queensland brewed beer. There is still a legacy of the "tied house" here and regional breweries still hold strong local markets.

I prefer Coopers and Little Creatures Pale Ale (similar to a Sierra Nevada). The beer scene here has changed in the last decade, a few more craft ones coming available but nowhere near the variety and quality in the US. If I could only find a DogFishHead 90 Minute IPA here I would be sooooooo happy!

An no one here drinks Fosters!

Rob,
yes I have speakers in hand and was going to use your template as a starting point for knowing where to mount the trim piece and courtesy light. I hope to be able to work on it this weekend and see if I can sort it all out. I do plan on going full deluxe door panels. Where can I get those bars?

Richard,
I'm glad to hear that no one down under drinks Fosters! That is terrible beer

Also, I have a 67 so do I still need those bars? http://www.mustangdepot.com/OnLineCa...s___deluxe.htm It looks like there is something similar to what you showed on here, but under the 1968 parts list.

Dale,
For 67 the deluxe door panel has a molded in arm rest. The standard use a screw on arm rest. The pull strap is unique to 1968 only. So no need for the strap anchor bars.
