  1. Hey all - does anybody have any tips as to how to remove the exhaust donut from the manifold? They are still in the car. They are original - steel?? and I've sprayed them with penetrating oil, have tried to knock them out with a cold chisel - to no avail. All the chisel is doing is breaking off chunks. I figured I's stop where I am while there is still material externally to work with. Not that it should matter at all, but it's a 351C. Thanks, Rick
  2. I have a 71-72 Mach 1 grill. Pretty sure it's a repro, as I can't find any part numbers on it. If there were part numbers, where would they be?
  3. Moderators - I realize this is a double post - please remove original post from the "Items you are selling" forum. Hey everybody, I am selling my 72 Mustang convertible. This is a documented 1 of 1 car per the Marti report (see link with images below) QCode 351CJ C6 automatic This car is well optioned - per the Marti Report: Black Knit Vinyl Bucket Seats 3.25 Traction Lok Rear Axle Black Power Top with Glass Backlite F60x15 Belted RWL Tires Power Steering Power Brakes Air Conditioner AM/FM Radio Protection Group (bumper guards) Tinted Glass Power Windows Magnum 500 Wheels Competition Suspension Everything works except the A/C The car runs and drives excellent. The body is in great shape - with a minor paint flaw by the driver's door. It's hard to capture in a pic but was a repair to a paint chip. There is no visible rust on the exterior of this car. No rust bubbles anywhere. No trunk rust. This was a Texas car (DSO 52 - Dallas) The a/c does not work. I have not had it diagnosed in the time I've had it. All the parts are there. This car was originally 6F gold glow but was painted correct 1972 2B bright red by the previous owner. The car currently has an Edelbrock 1405 4V carburetor. The original carb needs rebuilding. Original carb is included in with the car. Underside is 100% solid - no rust anywhere - except mild surface rust. Interior is excellent. Driver seat is showing minor wear (see pic) Convertible top is excellent - with one small tear - about 1/4" long (see pic) FACTORY ORIGINAL/OEM Magnum 500s. They have part numbers stamped in them (see pics). Space saver spare tire, with canister. There is a small trans pan drip. Selling because I've always been a classic Cougar guy and I'm going back to my roots. See pics, ask questions. I have 57 photos available to view. https://flic.kr/s/aHsmdzSZUY Marti reports are at the end of the pics. Asking $19,500.
  4. Thanks, mudbilly. That pic looks like it's the front side of the shock tower ?

  6. Where does the ground tab go on the negative battery cable on a '72? It's a QCode if that matters. I've read it goes on the voltage regulator bolt, but a friend of mine who has a 73 sent me of a pic of it secured to the inner fender. If it goes to the regulator: does it go under the regulator base, or between the mounting screw and the regulator? Thanks ! Rick
  7. Yes - I'm pretty sure somewhere I saw that i was lacquer - I just can't find it again. Am I better off hand buffing/polishing rather than using my polisher ? It's a small area, so it wouldn't be too bad to do. I realize The blend will probable be visible, but I think it'll look better than I expect it to, and better than if I left the gouges in the paint!! I'll wait a couple more days and get my buff on - lol. I'll let ya know how it turns out. Thx for the input !
  8. Q - It's single stage (2B color), I didn't use a blending agent - I don't even know what that is. Paintscratch sells color matched paint in spray cans (in addition to pens, bottles, pt > gal cans. I used a spray can. There were no specific instructions to use any other product. So, if "single stage with a blend" means single stage blended to surrounding paint - yes. I'm not a body guy so I'm not up on the terminology.
  9. So, I touched up an area on my door and now I need to polish it. I had to sand to metal, spot putty, prime and paint. I also wet sanded between some primer and paint coats. Anyway, their (paintscratch.com) instructions say to wait 3 days and polish with rubbing compound. I had a bad experience with rubbing compound in the past with another car, so am hesitant to use it (maybe the product has evolved in 30 years?? lol) : Per their instructions: Use rubbing compound to make it shine. Wait at least three days, then apply rubbing compound to the the entire area of car paint you fixed. This will make it smooth and shiny. Wait at least 30 days before waxing. Single Stage Paints Wait approximately three days, then apply rubbing compound to the single stage paint as explained above under Use rubbing compound. -------------------------------------- I have the following at home, and an wondering if/which of these I can use to polish it up: I also have a porter cable random orbit polisher and several different pads, so if I can use that with the above, please advise. I also have several sandpapers - definitely up to 1500# - maybe even 2000. The area I'll be working on is small - about 12"x12" Thanks, in advance for the help !
  10. I get that it's a joke. I guess it's just not something I'd joke about - but that's what makes the world go 'round.
  11. ...X3 Not amusing in the least. How amusing was the France terror attack? Nothing entertaining about running into people and dragging bodies behind you.
  12. Hey Gary - I got your pm. I'll try to get it in the mail tomorrow. Rick
  13. I was just going to post the same question. How do you mark the locations to drill, if you choose to not put the drill bit through the console holes ?
  14. Isn't there an adjustment on the steering box? I had a '69 Cougar with slop in the steering, and on top of the box is a slotted stud with a lockdown nut. Loosen the lockdown nut, turn the stud clockwise to take out the play, and lock it down again.
