  1. I doubt there are very many of you that ended up at your original home and birth place. My parents moved to Hendersonville, N.C. in 1946. My dad was drafted and sent home said he had a heart mummer but never had any issues from that. Anyway they bought a one bedroom home and little over 1 1/2 acres for $800. After both Dad and Mom passed away my sisters offered to sell their part of the home to me so I said yes and went to China to work and bought the home and my shop. I had lived at 11 or 12 different places over time. When I am anywhere here memories are everywhere. There is not a square

  2. Chris, I was starting to think the same thing. I had no issues with the old Halogen lights, other than perhaps the relay would have made them brighter. I will check the cost of Rocketman's relay and as you suggest, wait for jpaz's results. (or yours) The next thing I need to do is (when it's not raining) to check the aiming of these lights. I only did it last time against the garage door. I may pop over to my friends shop where he has the headlight aiming equipment. I hate being blinded by all the (high up) SUV's and truck lights and I wouldn't want to blind anyone else either. For

  3. That's the plan now. For me, the downside is paying in US Dollars plus shipping to Canada. Gets expensive. At least the LED's work without the relay, so the relay can be added on at a later date. I'm very disappointed the "made in China" pos didn't work.

  4. if you have inserted the converter as it should, rotating freely, you should if you measure from the edge of the casing with a stick, have a 1/4 of an inch on the hub of the converter deeper from that stick. On an FMX, the converter is out gears just 1/4 forward which is really easy to get when you wiggle the trans to mount it back. One thing I'd do is make sure it turns butter smooth when you install it outside the car, then use duckt tape from side to converter to keep it there and rotate it so it kinda match where the holes are on the flywheel. That may sound "non pro", but I'd really do th

  5. I would definitely have a new converter in it. All those shavings are almost impossible to get out of an old converter. Also make sure to dump some trans fluid in the new converter before install, You want to spin the converter as you are installing it and make sure it seats all the way. You will here a couple clunks as it seats completely. If you don't have it seated properly you can easily wipe out a new pump. Once you have the trans bolted to the motor you should be able to move the convert slightly inside the stud holes of flywheel. Should be loose fit, if its bound up at all, your conv

  6. Bob's a very busy guy, probably won't answer his phone, so better to send an email or just buy the relay kit, you won't be disappointed!

  8. Excellent explanation on "slop gray" David! I did not know this. You should do a write up and it should be made a sticky in the paint section. Since we have time, this should be a detail we could add with little effort. That green car is impressive! I've seen pictures of yours on this site and it is a perfect example of a survivor! Not sure if I've seen an engine bay pic though. Yes we are doing fine today. I spiked a minor fever this afternoon and felt a bit crummy so I took a nap. I lost sense of smell today. I peeled a fresh orange and couldn't smell it. My kiddos are fine so far,

  9. I always disliked the 'dragging ass' stance. Who would design car to look like it had bad springs on the showroom floor?

  10. Nice!, but I'm not going that far to hide the relays. BTW, I have removed the harness ready to send back for refund. I tested for power 12V through the fuse to the relay block and that was good. As I'm not up on electrical stuff, I have to assume that if there is power going in, there ought to be power coming out, but no.. So, not going to piss around with this anymore. Time to talk to Bob aka Rocketman.

  11. Somehow I missed that you have Covid. I do hope you jump right past that. My neighbor in her 80's got over the holidays and spent 83 days in hospital and rehab. So it kicks older peoples ass. Keep us informed for sure and hope the kids are fine. I do not know if you know the history of the Ford Slop Gray paint. In the paint shop you are changing colors all the time as different cars come through. Ford collected all the purge paint and left over of every color and mixed it all together. As colors do if you mix white, black blue, red all colors together it always comes out a gray color. Som

  12. I have Rocketman's harness. And although I have not used it yet, it's an obvious quality piece, and he's a site supporter. I'd definitely recommend his product over an Amazon product.

  13. As a convertible owner, I like that you sit IN the car rather than ON it. The driving, handling and braking on our cars is MUCH better than the earlier cars. I agree the mirrors are not terribly functional but they do look good. They are a bit challenging for long legged people. I've taken care of the seating position but the mirrors I'll live with. Overall it's my most comfortable pair of old shoes!

  14. Big news on my project—it’s shiny! Monday was paint day. I got up at 5:30am and called AAA because I had “car trouble”. The tow truck showed up and hauled the car to work for me. I got there early and moved everything into place and started my final prep work. Then I got the best gift I could ever ask for in this project. My co-worker Frank who runs the training center was going to help me! Frank is a fantastic painter and super highly skilled, so this was a major bonus. Frank did the tricky bits of masking, questioned a few setup issues and led me to better decisions, and made some pr

  15. I'll know how good they are in a week or so. The story on them is that the seller bought them from a body shop that was going out of business and never used them. He claims they aren't warped and that all of the clip pockets are still in good shape. $235 total shipped.
