  1. Decided to tackle this little project. The car came with a center console that was in less than desirable shape but not bad enough to toss so I decided to try a few things. First there was a section missing, so I took an extra kick panel I had and cut it to shape the outline of the forward drivers side. then steel wool on all the trim and masked. Sprayed with some duplicolor flexible vinyl paint I believe it was. second, found some textured black abs plastic on eBay (12” square 1/8” thick) and fabricated a cover and made a cup holder where the ash tray was and a usb charge dock. This was nice not only for the cup holder but to cover the holes from previously installed switches. overall I’m pretty happy! And maybe when the time comes I can get a new 700$ one but for now this will do! Hope it inspires someone else with a broken center console.

  2. Maybe they're hoping Firestone would buy them for some kind of nostalgic promotion or comparison. Other than some deep pocket collector coming in, I don't see much value beyond being Two nice original coupe's at 25k apiece.

  3. so I know this is going to piss off the purists. I have always had a good audio system in my cars, I competed professionally for many years and stock is just not going to do it for me. With the Stang, we went for an old school approach, USD Waveguides and some 6in Midbass drivers, I wanted to keep the stock look inside with a good amount of attack and volume. We tried to look for options in terms of the 6in drivers. But went totally bonkers

  4. Yes, the washer hose is held in place by them. You can see where mine are located at. I used electrical tape to secure the hose to them.

  5. Wow, the end result is fantastic. I love the color. I thought my car had a lot of layers of paint, you deserve some sort of award for sanding through 93 layers. Great work!

  6. Finally got my a/f and trans temp gauges installed. Did a dry fit on both sides plus the rear of the shifter and the passenger side worked out best. Really no other place to put them. Easy to see and out of the way even for the passenger. Need to finish hooking up the exhaust and I will be back on the road again.

  7. If you’re going 10 wide. I’d look for 6 -6.5 backspacing. That 5.5 will be tight

  8. That looks really good, well done I like the "cast iron look" and the combination of the colors, the valve covers are spot on Now, please do not add any other massive colors (for example the infamous yellow spark plug wires), black + cast iron + aluminum looks good enough

  9. After asking the question I went out in the garage and figured it out. Discovered that the wiper motor gearbox has a cam that pushes a rod that breaks a contact inside the motor to make it park. A flat spring returns the contact to position. The rod having 50 year old grease wasn’t freely returning. Got that all cleaned up and put some fresh lightweight lube and it is working great. The wipers park perfectly. If your wipers won’t park and you go down the same avenue I did the only advice I have is that the wiper motor is a DC Permanent magnet motor, so if you decide to remove the two screws with a 5/16” head and remove the cover it will try to take the rotor with it (because of the magnet). Since there are carbon brushes on the rotor it would be easier to not make the same mistake I did. If you take off the gearbox cover you can use something soft like a small piece of wood or plastic to put pressure on the worm gear, and that should keep the rotor in place while you remove and install the cover. Red circles show where the cam lever, pushrod and contact are.
