  1. It’s been a month or two, but I am pretty sure I pulled my weather strips out from the top and inserted them from the top. I just had to work the edge over on the bottom side once it was in that far. I can’t image trying to install and remove from the bottom—there is a big chuck of rubber on the top that seems like it would make that impossible to do.

  2. hello everybody. I have been a passive viewer of the forum for a while, but am just getting to introducing myself... my dad received a '71 mach 1 as payment for some concrete work he did when i was about 7 yrs old. He had no need for a muscle car since he was a contractor and only needed more trucks. But his plans to sell the beauty were stopped when I overheard his conversations and offered him everything in my ceramic piggy bank (>$10). Unfortunately I was unable to work on the car until i graduated college, and my first "few" paychecks went into restoring it. Long story short, here

  3. I finally finished something I started some time ago, in response to recent posts and questions about what, where and how components of the steering column are. I wasn't able to find the description/sizes of some of the hardware, and if I can come up with them I'll add them later.

  4. Just wondering if any 7173 Mustang members have a home theater system or dedicated media/TV room? With Covid, they seem to have really gained popularity lately! I am working on a modest room in my basement...nothing too extravagant but it is really cool to watch movies with cinema grade sound! I have a 70" LG Ultra HD TV Klipsch 5.1 speaker system Denon Surround Receiver Popcorn machine Mini Fridge Movie wall art ETC... I'll post some pics as soon as I get the place cleaned up and presentable, LOL! So what are you guys working with?

  6. Yes! I am stoked about the popcorn machine! This is what I got...haven't tried it out yet, but it looks pretty legit! https://www.amazon.com/Nostalgia-CCP510-Vintage-6-Ounce-Commercial/dp/B000V73JNW/ref=sr_1_2?crid=JC6FYEZLMYH&dchild=1&keywords=nostalgia+popcorn+maker&qid=1614109086&sprefix=nost%2Caps%2C162&sr=8-2

  7. Did you connect an ohm meter to the terminal on the horn and the ground? You should get around 3 ohms if the coil in the horn is still good.

  9. I tried the screw and it didn't work. I don't have an ultrasonic cleaner, but I'll try the soaking it for a few days in dawn and see if I get anywhere with that and then running the screw in and out. Thanks for the ideas guys.

  10. I made one around 1999. Started with a projection TV Changed out to a Vizio 60 about 6 years ago. Sound is Denon 7.1 amp, Boston Acoustic speakers, and Carver sub-woofer. I don't use it as much as I should for the dollars spent. There is a wet bar, microwave, and fridge in the next room. Again, I don't use it as much as I should. It was what I wanted at the time.

  11. If they are already cleaned from the inside: on the backside of the horns there is a screw. It has helped to turn them in and out until it honks healthy on some horns which appeared to be dead before So I "repaired" every OEM horn like these and it was at no-cost! After that I removed the old paint and grime and a few spray paint farts later they appear like new again

  12. I was having problems with mine. One sounded absolutely sick and the other one would not work at all. Got tired of trying to find one and the repos don’t look original enough to me. I just finally went ahead and sent them to The Horn Works. Glad I did! They turned out really nice and they work great. They were never as loud as they are now. Wasn’t cheap, but like I said I got so tired of not having working horns that I just had to do something. Anyway, I hope you can find one, but if not I just wanted to let you know my experience with getting mine rebuilt.

  13. Do you have access to an ultrasonic cleaner? I have revived a number of original horns with one. Chuck it in with a couple drops of Dawn dish soap for a couple of hours, shake out as much water as you can, let it dry for a day or two and apply voltage. It's worth a shot.

  14. I invested in the future and bought these from NPD: https://www.npdlink.com/product/disc-brake-conversion-kit-wilwood-forged-dynalite-series/196828 Ever since I was a kid I wanted red calipers on my brakes, visible through a cool set of wheels. These will also motivate me to keep moving forward with my super slow restoration :-) The box will also contain the matching hoses.

  15. Hello again.Spring plates are done.I ''based'' them on the KK blue prints.I made them out of 1/4 inch plate.You will notice they are for the staggered shocks. None of the Trans Am cars used staggered shocks that I could find.So here we are,blazing new territory.The shock set up will make me redesign the Watts link,shouldn't be that big of an issue.The plates also include the mount for the rear sway bar which I ordered today.I found a new 5/8'' Stam Bar kit on ebay,so now I have a bar that is straight across like the KK bar so I can mount it to the back of the Watts box.

  17. That's a bada$$ bike Geoff. That bike needs the "Giant" sticker removed though and replaced with a Mach 1 sticker. That would be legit.

  18. Well, today's the day. She's 50 today, February 22 1971-2021. To "celebrate", I bought her a birthday card and a cup cake, but I'll eat the cup cake! Too wet and cold to take her out, but I did wake her up from hibernation to take these pics.

  19. For those looking at a tilt column never buy one without the coupling, plate that clamps to the floor and not working. Will cost you double to piece one together. Get everything or step away from the buy will dollar you to death. They are like gold now and about three years ago $300 would buy everything.

  20. Thanks! I didn't have much luck with the PB blaster, they were really stuck in there. Ended up rigging a kind of "press" like the one below to get the front ones out, and was eventually able to get the rear ones out after a lot of hammering.

  21. My last name is Jacobson, not Johnson. But you can call me Mid, but don't call me late for dinner. Otherwise, great video.
