  1. 1972 fast back, 302 2v, 14" tires. What's the best looking tire size for my car, staying with the 14" rims? I've seen 225 or 235 60's or 70's and was wondering what would look better. These will be COOPER raised white letter tires. I have old beat up white walls on there now. The wheels "look" like Magnum 500's, but I'm pretty sure they're knock off's but they still look good. Also replacing my springs with a kit from CJ. This is not a trailer queen, nor will I be doing any long distance driving, but I want to correct the stance, as it sits low in the rear. What do you think, 4 1/2 or 5 leafs? This is just a summer cruising car, so I don't need anything exotic............ I have redone the entire front suspension years ago, so I don't want to mess with that.
  2. Has anyone ever installed an vapor separator gas filter on their cars? Is this a big deal? I have a 302 2v that had those issues in the past, and was wondering about them
  3. Sorry for another lemming question, but here goes: I bought "white" TMI seat covers and standard door panels from CJ and Kentucky Mustang respectively. They both match, but the "white" is more of an off white, maybe light almond looking? I thought they were Wimbledon white and bought that color paint for the interior quarters etc, and it doesn't match. The interior, headliner etc, is white I have a message in to TMI about what shade white this might be, but was wondering if anyone else would have any input or ideas so I can get it to match better. Thanks in advance...…….
  4. Just replaced the standard door panels on my '72 fastback. One of the old panels had a perfect circle cut into it from a chrome looking "crank protector" between the crank and the panel. I don't want this to happen with these new panels. Should I omit the decorative "crank protector", or get a pair of plastic protectors I see online? Supposedly these plastic protectors are for deluxe panels only. Thanks...………..
  5. Thanks for the quick reply. No I trashed the old panels. I could do the trial and error method with the clips, but thought I'd see if there was a right or wrong way first, I know it's not rocket science, LOL! If I set the clips in to opening, they fit in one direction, but turning them 180 degrees they still fit, but the rounded end is at the flat end of the opening...………….
  6. I have new standard door panels that I'm ready to install and wondering if the clips from the old panel are the right ones. The ones I have are a mixture of red and black, and are made of round metal. I test fitted a couple into the new panels and they are difficult to slide into place. I think I've seen ones that were made of flat metal that would probable slide on easier, also curious about the orientation of the clips. Do they slide into the rounded side of the hole in the panel, or the flattened side?
  7. The opening is 2 5/8" x 1 1/2", is that about what you have? What's it called? Cost with shipping to 60056?

  9. I have a '72 sports roof and I'm trying to find the small insert that goes in the opening of the interior quarter panel for the right rear seatbelt, buckle side. The part number I have is D3ZB-6331486 which is for a '73, but it works ok on my '72. I saw one on ebay and it also had the rectangular opening. Is there something that's supposed to go in that hole, like a belt guide? Thanks in advance...…………….
  10. I'm going to replace my chrome front bumper, and was looking for any tips. It looks pretty straight forward, but with the old hardware, would I be better removing the entire assy with the frame brackets, or removing it from the brackets and fighting those 6 big phillips bolts? I also plan on hosing everything down with PB BLASTER before I ever start. I've got nothing but time now, and was just inquiring of the easiest least frustrating way to go...…………..Thanks
  11. I have learned through this site that our era Mustangs make oil pan replacement very difficult. As stated in an earlier post mine is dented (don't ask), but not leaking, only unsightly. Is it possible to replace the pan by removing the oil pump, if there's enough clearance, also is the shaft from the distributer to the pump "captive"? Will it fall out into the pan if I remove the pump?
  12. Unsure what the piece on the top of the radiator support over the nut plate was for, it was slightly movable, but would not align with the nut plate, and that is why the stop wouldn't thread in. I removed whatever that was and both stops went in smoothly. If I find out they were necessary, I still have them. Thanks for you info.
  13. Just bought new adjustable hood bumpers. The old ones were missing the rubber, so I figures I'd just put new ones in, easy job right?? The old ones were very snug coming out, and the new ones wouldn't start in the holes. I removed the jamb nut from the a new one ( the old one didn't have any) and tried to screw it on an old one and it felt like it might be a different thread (maybe metric?) I'm going to the hardware store tomorrow and checking them on their checker. Has anyone ever ran into this? The nut plates on the car look like one on the top of the radiator support and one on the bottom? Too cold to mess around too much longer, not an earth shaking problem, but just curious.
