  1. Decided that if I'm going to give it a shot I'll purchase another double din like I have in my 03 Jeep.

    I don't have steering wheel controls on the Jeep, so I added a Parrot system that allows me to answer/hang up without touching the phone. I'm able to start a phone call by tapping the green button and saying a commend to call...

  2. So that's a single din with a double din fixed down.

    Looks great as it doesn't look like it blocks the a/c - heat controls. 

    Question???

    1) I wonder if you could have gone a little wider screen to cover the OEM radio control holes?

    Anything else you can say about this and the install would be great.

     

  3. There's a local photographer looking to do a photo shoot next April/May for a calendar, 

    Sent him a pic of Christine and he liked her. So all is looking good.

    Said to me would I mind a model standing next to the car and/or draped over the hood.  

    HMMM??? Not really crazy about the hood, but WTH.

    Mentioned it to the Mrs. and said....YOU FLIP OUT WITH ME FOR GETTING FINGERPRINTS ON THE CAR AND NOW YOU'RE GOING TO ALLOW A MODEL LAY ON TOP OF THE HOOD.

    Figured by now you realize I'm not doing the Photo shoot.

    There have been a few, here's one

    Nobody has written up a tutorial, though

    In answer to your question, yes that is a single DIN with a flip up. A word of caution about the operating system (Android) it is two versions out of date and there likely won't be any way to update it. The current version of Android is 11. If you try to install apps you'll likely encounter some that require the latest and you'll have no way to update it.

     

    That single din with flip was just an example. 

    Thanks

  5. I picked these up yesterday.

    Thoughts???

    https://shop.advanceautoparts.com/p/felpro-valve-cover-gasket-set-vs-13264-t/18180034-P?searchTerm=valve cover gasket

    Going to also pick up a set of exhaust extension studs as a guide to make sure the gasket and valve cover are lined up properly and once set will remove the extension stud one at a time and replace them with the studs that came with the valve cover.

     

  6. UPDATE....Sort of

    Took a deep breath and started doing some research on rear main seal leaks.

    One possibility is the valve cover leaking and not the rear main seal.

    I know my drivers side nearer to the firewall wall valve cover does have a slight leak. Now I did have Christine out today for a belated Mustang Day cruise and did 230 miles. 

    So before I do anything else with the Rear Main Seal, going to change that valve cover gasket.

    Can anyone recommend the best gasket to buy?

    Cross your fingers and hope for the best.

  7. I think my rear main seal is leaking...not bad....but it is as I saw a few very lite drops of oil on the garage floor after pulling her in.

    What really gets me is that the engine and trans were rebuilt about 5 years ago and I only drive about 1,000 miles a year. Guess I could leave it alone and check the oil level whenever I take her out and put her back in the garage.

    Or, before it gets worse and I need to bring it into a shop to fix, any idea what the cost would be as I know it's not a easy job or cheap?

    Thanks

    Since the Charlotte Autofair is canceled this year (https://www.charlotte-autofair.com/calendar/)

    and  being postponed a few times (Understandable)... this is good news.

    In the article above from ib4stangs -- Carlisle spokesman Mike Garland said . “We had never postponed an event before.” 

    Unusual times indeed. Gotta make do with the opportunities available to us.

    Now I need to figure out , will my car can make it up to Carlisle (June) or do I plan for the Charlotte Autofair in April.

    What tools and equipment should I stow in the trunk for extended trips?  just in case :)

    ...and here I am struggling with driving 4.5 hours from New Jersey.

    Maybe we can get a number of us to go next year as a group from this site?
