  1. Well I had a few mess ups doing my side stripes. Hope this helps others. If I could have a do over I would have trimmed the overlay mounting paper to a straight edge to line up with a masking tape stripe to use as a guide. The paper edge was uneven and made it difficult to line up. Just rember you need some kind of hard markers to line everything up and that was my fault not doing enough research first to set it up properly. If you have a good Gide edge on the tape stripe you can line it up edge to edge. Thanks Rodney from SW Florida
  2. Ok thanks for your feedback. I will have my springs rearched
  3. I was looking on eBay and they have Monroe spring adjust rear shocks for sagging rear end which I have. My old shocks are leaking air shocks. The seller states that shocks will raise ride height in rear. Anyone have experience with this product? Good or bad".... Thanks Rodney from S W Florida
  4. I have found one hood that has some measurement scribble but to me it is not readable or understandable. Anyone have NASA hood paint layout dem ? I want to get my hood vinyl wrapped instead of paint. Thanks Rodney from SW Florida

  7. Pics of extra padding for seat sold by npd with no explanation of placement on seat frame.
  8. Thanks everyone. I think it is china poor workmanship issue. I ordered a new one on line premium edition. I will also do as everyone has suggested about inspecting and cleanliness. I have also read about locktite 545 thread sealant and my try that as a last resort, do not want to change out the hard line. Thanks Rodney from SW Florida
  9. Ok today I removed the wheel and brake drum and had my wife slowly apply brake pressure. It took some time but I was able to find the leak. It is leaking at the hard line connection to the wheel cylinder. I gave it little extra snug tightening but it still leaks. It could be possible that the wheel cylinder has a deep cavity and the line is a shallow cavity line. The car had brake problems when I bought it so maybe the hard line is bad. Any troubleshooting tips?
  10. I just finished my all drum brake rebuild on my 72 Q code 4 sp. I tried bleeding the brakes and I have a healthy leak on my left rear inside the drum. I have not pulled it apart yet but I seem to remember reading about if you did not adjust the brake shoes out after install it will make wheel cylinder leak. Could that be the case? Yes yes all wheel cylinders are new from auto zone (low quality my opinion). All hardware is new. I will pull it apart tomorrow and look for leak. Just wanted to see if anyone has had this same type of issue ? Thanks Rodney from SW Florida
  11. When I brought home my 1972 Q code 4 sp
  12. Welcome fro SW Florida
  13. Anyone know of a detailed measurement of the ram air hood scoop plugs. I want to make my own since mine is missing from PO. Thanks Rodney from SW Florida[/size]
  14. Well I have been looking at all of the great convertible mustangs and with all that have registered on this site it looks like a high number has survived. My 1972 Q code 4 speed is supposed to be one of 201 but I swear there must be at least 150 on this site alone. Has any one done a count? Is it possible that the Marti reports are wrong ? Please everyone leave your count on this page then we will know for sure. Rodney from SW Florida:thankyouyellow:
  15. Add a simple plastic utility sink and plum with a drain. You will need to clean things maybe even your hands. Rodney from SW Florida
  16. Welcome from SW Florida. I also have a 1972 maybe we all can share as we go. Rodney from SW Florida
  17. Hey everyone I am about ready to tackle the new seat foam install but I do not have good info on the small aux pieces used to protect the vinyl sides. The NPD site shows two small piece kit for 9.95 but they do not show where to install them. Any helpful advise on install of burlap, seat foam, frame padding or any other info that will help with this project. Thanks Rodney from SW Florida :thankyouyellow:
  18. Thanks guys for your opinions and Don I agree with your 15" advise. I will probably go with specialty wheels 15x8" all around with BFG 235x60 tires. I like the deep dish that the 8" offers. Thanks everyone for the great tips Rodney from SW Florida
  19. Ok I decided to buy a new set of 15" magnum 500 and trying to decide where to buy. Summit has the best price but I have heard of quality issues. Mousouri Mustang supply has speciality wheels for a couple hundred more. Anyone have hands on experience that can provide feedback. The extra money is ok if the quality difference is obvious. Thanks
  20. I added a chin spoiler to my 1972 Q code 4speed convertible.[/size]
  21. I am considering vinyl wrap for my hood on nasa hood 1972 mustang Q code. I want to have the factory type satin black. I am not sure of the cost and all of the other pluses and minuses . Anyone had this done please pass on info to help me and others thinking of the same thing. Thanks Rodney from SW Florida
  22. My car has 14" now they are 1975 sema wheels with the honeycomb design. They are nice wheels but I prefer the Magnum look. My tires are almost new and I do not want to purchase a new set of tires and wheels. My budget will allow wheel purchase. My marti report says f70x14" I do have drum brakes all around.
  23. I am looking to purchase a nice used set or a new set of 14" Maganum wheels. Any ideas of which aftermarket wheels to stay away from and what vendors sell decent wheels? What size would fit 14x7 front and 14x8 rear ? Thanks Rodney from SW Florida
