  1. Thank you very much for your offer. As they need to be shipped to Europe and this in an insurance job I will need official invoices and stuff for the duties and freight. I’ll try and get a set from the Graphics Express that several others are recommending. I did already try to order from NPD before I saw some of these replies but they won’t ship to Europe unless I buy more stuff which I don’t presently need.
  2. Tim thank you and I have found another place who seems much better. I have changed the headlamps as you mention above, the speedo to kph with one of the overlay kits, and for teh TUV already put the rear indicators into the reversing lamps lens...for now. Hopefully next week all will be done and i can go and get my license plates!
  3. Hi all, I just shipped my Mach1 to Germany and in transit it picked up some paint chips/damage to the front and rear. The trunk lid and right side rear quarter panel will need painting so consequently the Mach1 decal and stripes will need to be replaced. I've found the replacements at NPD for $50 but before ordering (and then having shipped to Germany....) would appreciate hearing your views on quality of these or any other suppliers you've used. Many thanks in advance. Nigel
  4. Thank you and yes. I have just brought my Mustang from the US to Germany and am in the proposes of getting it inspected (the German TUV) to make sure it is OK to use here and I have two issues to deal with - the warning light isn’t working (at all) and if it did it would light up red (based on your reply) and in Germany it should be blue. Hopefully I can find a different inspector who will be more tolerant…
  5. Hi all, can someone tell me where this lamp is on the dashboard and the color of the lamp when illuminated please? Thanks. Nigel B
  6. Hi Tim and Juergen I have a 72 Mach 1 Q Code 4 speed in the US that I plan to import to Germany when I finally return there. It is good condition and hopefully will not encounter any TUV issues - any tips from you would be much appreciated. The body is very solid with no rust and all mechanicals are good. I am just replacing all the seat belt webbing at the moment. I am planning to take out the 4 speed (which I'll keep) before I ship and replace with the Tremec 5 speed which is a bolt in conversion with no cutting needed - and which will make it more autobahn friendly. I would love to be able to track down a correct KMH speedometer so if you ever hear of one anywhere let me know please. When I do return to Germany I'll be sure to let you know. Cheers Nigel
  7. Hi Rodney - may I ask why 14"? as far as I know only 15" Magnums were ever offered on the 71-73. I do have a set of 14x7 original Ford Magnums for sale but they should really go on an older Mustang I think.
  8. I contacted the publisher today and within the day received the following helpful reply which fixed my problem: Date: Sun, 27 Dec 2015 19:24:21 +0000 From: xxxx@forelpublishing.com To: xxxx@hotmail.com Subject: Re: 1972 Colorized Mustang Wiring & Vacuum Diagrams Nigel, First, thank you for purchasing one of our products and I am sorry for any trouble you are having. As the publisher, we work very hard to produce top quality products so any reported problem we take very seriously. I believe the problem may be with the version of License Manager you are using. What version of License Manager do you have? To check, open License Manager and then click on the "About" button. If you have anything older than v12.8.4 for Windows or v12.8.5 for MAC, then you should update it. To update, do the following: a) Close License Manager (if it is open) b) Close Adobe Reader (if it is open) c) Uninstall your current version of License Manager - To uninstall go to Start>Control Panel>Add/Remove Programs>PDF OwnerGuard Users Edition - Highlight PDF OwnerGuard User Edition - Select Uninstall d) Install the most current version of License Manager from our website at: http://www.forelpublishing.com/estore/scripts/openExtra.asp?extra=16 e) Once on the download page, click "Download Now" and then click "Run". f) Follow the prompts to install License Manager. Please let me know if this corrects the problem. We stand behind our products, so we will get this working for you. David LeBlanc Owner
  9. Hi all I've bought the wiring diagrams that are advertised here http://www.ebay.com/itm/1972-Colorized-Mustang-Wiring-Diagrams-CD-ROM-/370640126131?hash=item564bdf80b3:m:m5LHUiHj-lL9k7oGJTslzQQ&vxp=mtr but having installed the DVD and completed the necessary code log in I still cannot open the files. It's probably operator error on my part. I have a newish PC and am using Windows 10 Any tips would be much appreciated. I'll try and contact the publishers if not easy solution is found here Thanks
  10. Hi everyone I'm selling these as a set. They are in excellent condition with no pitting and all fixing lugs are in place. There is very minor overspray in evidence, mostly on the extreme edge of the fender moldings but this will easily remove with some fine wire wool. Asking $150 firm plus shipping with payment via PayPal. Inferior pattern parts are available form NPD at double this price. I'll be listing these on eBay if not sold by January 5th but thought I'd offer to you guys first. Thanks
  11. Thanks everyone. I checked my car last night that is in the shop and yes it has the dual diaphragm as several of you suspected. The guy working on the car (Jeff Schrembi at Oval Repairs in Livonia MI) knows his stuff re older Mustangs, and was surprised that my car still had the points step up inside the distributor and wondered why I hadn't changed over to Pertronix. Apparently you don't have to do any non reversible work so can always revert back, just install the new innards in the distributor. I had a quick read on here and can see several people have changed over, some things to watch out for etc. But what I have works today, and I know will need maintenance in the future. I think I need to do some more reading to form a better opinion. As usual I'm finding the help I get on this forum amazing. Thanks all.
  12. Thanks to this site I recently managed to find the 'hard to find' under hood light that was installed originally as part of the convenience pack on my car. It occurred to me that there could be value in collaborating with some of the big Mustang parts suppliers (NPD, Ohio etc) to put together a survey among our members (and possibly other Mustang clubs also) to identify the parts that we need but just struggle to find either in breakers, on eBay or from the established sellers. The under hood lamp is one example. The inner A pillar trim piece is another. I am sure longer experienced members than I could easily add to the list. I guess this may have been looked at before but I thought I'd sound you guys out. Unfortunately (!) it is (too) easy for me to drive right by NPD on my way home so I could easily call in and sound them out. Thoughts?
  13. You guys are so helpful. Thank you. I'll see if I can check tonight. My car is in the workshop getting the clutch replaced and the flywheel skimmed.
  14. Guys apologies for the basic question..... I want to order the correct vacuum lines from Marti http://www.martiauto.com/reproducedparts.cfm There are two sets shown for my car a 72 Q Code. How can I tell if my car has the single or dual diaphragm distributor please? I do not have Ram Air (in fact I don;t believe Ram Air was offered as an option on the 72 Q code. Thanks
  15. A warm welcome from Detroit!
  16. Hey Biskit a warm welcome from Detroit - this is a great forum and I hope you get as much from it as I do Nigel
  17. Hi Marco and a warm welcome from Detroit. I worked on an off road buggy project with my son and the times we shared in the garage together were just so valuable for us both. Good luck - this is a great forum!.
  18. Couldnt find an original looking one but here is the one I ended up using: http://www.npdlink.com/store/index.php?p=catalog&mode=search&search_in=id&search_str=15702-2A Thanks and not a bad alternative but I think i have tracked an original one down now. NPD should source a replacement for the 71-73s - I'm sure there is demand!
  19. Hi John and thanks - the one on eBay is for a different model but thanks for looking out for me. I'll try Don. Fingers crossed.....
  20. Hi all, I'm having trouble tracking down one of these - can anyone help?
  21. Welcome from Detroit - and that's quite a collection you have there.
  22. A warm welcome from Detroit and look forward to following your story
  23. Welcome from Detroit - it sounds like an interesting project you have there!
  24. About the hood, I found some interesting information in a "Mustang Restoration Guide" book: Which correspondaing to my sticker: And I found out what means 16A on the Chilton book: So, or the hood have been changed over the years, the air cleaner box too. God only knows. Hi Manu In the last photo in your post above which resto guide is this taken from please? I need some advice on the routing for the vacuum lines on the correct air cleaner I have bought for my Q code 72 Mach 1 and this looks to be just what I need. Thanks
