Thought I'd share my latest hillbilly repair job. If you guys are anything like me, you hate getting nickled and dimed replacing every little plastic clip and bushing that has slowly disintegrated on your aging Fox. Today I was in the garage and popped the hatch open, only to find that the striker bushing had given up the ghost and my hatch was wobbling and rattling all over the place. The fix? It sure as hell isn't that $35 piece from any of the Mustang resto places. 1/2" ID X 5/8" OD tube (in my case vinyl, but I'm sure other materials will work), cut to size and slit long ways: Slip it on the striker: And then wrap it in something to keep it in place. I used some Gorilla tape, but I think a better method would be to use some robust heat shrink for a seamless 360 degree hold. I have some badass shrink tube at work that I'll try out in the future. I doubt this is as durable as a replacement bushing, but even if it only lasts a year, I'll be happy. I have probably $0.10 into this, so I'd have to re-do it 350 times to justify the replacement striker.
