  1. There are vendors, but some combinations are not made anymore - or at least I haven't been able to find them. Like anything colors with dots.
  2. Nobody distributes anything on CDs anymore. And the content of the CD was the license manager and - PDFs.
  3. The documents are created by scanning the old hard copy manuals. It's Really Hard to take a scan of an old document, run it through an optical character recognition application, fix all the mis-read part numbers and then go in and check Every Single part number to make sure it can be found.
  4. Go to the Ford manuals website. They are aware of this problem and can make copies of the manuals you have purchased that don't need the Forel digital rights management software. It helps if you have your license keys.
  5. The rest of the wiring is not in place. This circuit is part of the Convenience Group, which adds a bunch of bells and whistles (well, buzzers and lights), like the map light, under dash lights, automatic seat back releases, parking brake warning, glove box lock, trunk light (not part of the convenience group harness), and engine compartment light. I'm sure I've probably missed something. You can roll your own by following the wiring diagram if you just want the parking brake light.
  6. Hmmm.... AC control in the dash, looks like an expansion valve on the firewall, but no condenser or compressor. Hoses missing to the ram air air cleaner, power steering hose clamp missing. Giving it away is probably the only way to get rid of it.
  7. Is it just me or are there no vacuum lines running to the ram air actuators, and I don't think I see any windshield washer hoses either.
  8. Couldn't find a photo from a Mustang, but this picture from a '73 Torino will give you a good idea of where the switch is located.
  9. What you are pointing to in the first photo is called the beltline weatherstrip. That is not what is in your second photo. The second photo is the weather strip that goes around the other 3 sides of the door.
  10. I just sent in information for a quote - we'll see what happens
  11. From what I understand, they have a process that resurfaces the parts with a thin textured vinyl cover. I would imagine it is similar to what they do to recover the padded dash parts or the deluxe door panels, but without the padding behind it. It's not perfect, but best I have seen so far. Their process would also match the colors of their door panels, so that is a plus as well.
  12. His location is South Africa. Availability of parts there is limited, and shipping from here is a killer.
  13. There are always gauges available on eBay if you want to keep it original. There are also aftermarket gauges from a number of vendors - CJ Pony, NPD, and others.
