Door-to-A Pillar Wiring Convolute
#1
runninpony 
Hi guys...I'm building a Grabber Lime 429...and am adding door speakers to the car.  My doors (and A-pillars) currently do not have holes for the wiring convolute, so I need to add.  I have pics of how this is done, but if anyone can provide specifics to the following, I'd appreciate:

1) Dimensions for holes and hole locations
2) Where to buy wiring convolute parts (according part that goes form door to A-Pillar)

thx!

Tremendous help..thanks Don!  Any idea of Ford still sells these new?  I'm working with a local dealer to find out if I can still buy the 79-93 Mustang parts out of their supply base.  So far no luck - but the dealer guy I have been working with has been having trouble ID'ing the part number, so we have to get that straight first.  Understand these are outside of the "10 year window" for service fulfillment requirements, however, I find that sometimes dealers still supply odds and ends like this.  As an example, I am still able to buy a new brake light switch for my 70 Maverick. Was never expecting that...

Hi Geoff, yes, I finally joined.  There's no way I could have gone through this entire build without finally becoming a member.  Thanks for the help!

On parts availability from Ford. I ask the guy on the parts counter the other day how far he goes back and it was either 1982 or 1985 that the parts books stopped. You can get your dealer to do a search for parts at all the Ford dealers and sometimes old inventory pops up. People like Bob Perkins wore that out when it became a computer thing. I remember my Ford dealer got me the last NOS trunk lid for a 65 Mustang in about 1980?? It was at a dealer. I also cleaned out all the 20th. Ann GT-350 stripe sets when Shelby sued Ford for using the stripe without his permission. I got 25 sets of stripes for all the dealers in the U.S.. I can get you the Ford info off one of the NOS sets of speakers I have to do a search for the part number if you want. There were two different ones actually. One has the wires just for the speakers and the other has Power Windows and the speakers. Those are hens teeth for sure.
I do not think there was ever a 10 year requirement for them to keep parts. I know I tried to get some in the 70's just after the 73 model run and could not get then. Depends on the item. Front end and rear end sheet metal usually sells the best and sticks around longer.
You can imagine how many tools are involved and the area that they take up is huge. Most store the tooling outside after production ends and they set in the rain and snow.

Are your cars 71's or fox bodies?  What kind of condition are the parts in?

 You're most welcome. The help you can get from the great guys on here will blow your mind.
 The PM feature is very useful when you need to communicate privately to make deals or arrangements.
 Does BFH mean what I think it means? Big F'n Hammer!!? Your car will certainly be that when it's done.

Yep it does.  When I bought the car, it had no engine.  When we were walking through the sellers pole barn, I noticed the 429 TJ from another project.  He looked at me and said "you want that big f'n thing moving your car?".  Sold...
