  1. Think they should be renamed Look Cool Lights. The real reason I'm replying ....need the correct bulb number or sometimes called trade name. I can't seem to find anybody that knows the answer. Maybe you could look at one of your bulbs and give me a reply back .......much appreciate your help going forward.
  2. I am also getting ready to install Drip Assembly in week or so. I really appreciate the help from Carolina Mountain Mustang. I also have a Jim Osborn Reproduction of Body Assembly Manual for 1971-1972 Mustang. It states to use (ESB-M2G150-A) Adhesive the entire length of Retainer between Retainer and Rail. I will be using the 3M 08578 as shown in photo from CMM. Thanks again CMM for advise and detailed photos.
  3. Subject: Wiper Blades 18 inch

    Problem: Can't seem to find low profile blade assy that will clear the back of the hood. Trico has 18-1 and 18-2 listed on website but according to Trico Support they have been discontinued.

    Found one NOS Trico 48-180 blade Refill yesterday. It seems to fit wiper assy but, just went on Amazon to order another and it told me "it does not fit my car" .

    Anybody changed wiper blades lately....?  Any help would be appreciated.

    Thank You,

      Check out Carid.com. I bought the exact model Trico (18-1) that you mention from them last year. They fit fine and clear back edge of hood. Just checked and looks like they still have them in stock.

      Thanks you, i will check it out !!

  4. Hi Tegemus,

    Regarding the QA1Single Adjustable Rear Shock for your 71 mach 1 .....the QA! p/n for the Rear Shock is TS601 ..... this rear shock is for 1964 thru 1973 Mustangs. If you order from JEGS online they cost 159.99     shipping is free

      Thanks for the info, Outrider4. Appreciate it.

  5. Hi Terry,

    Answer to your question regarding bonnet extension being removed.....Yes, and same goes for rear quarter extensions..left and right side. This will allow for good coverage in those areas when paint is applied. 

  6. Went with QA1 adjustable front and rear. Very happy with results. softened the rear a couple of notches and all good.
  7. Nice job, Are you going to paint the rocker panels and lower quarters black ? If so is it going to be satin black or flat black. I'm leaning toward satin..not sure what factory used.
  8. Color code is 3 which is bright red for the 71's. It is 2 stage base coat and clear over it. Base coat
  9. There are only four bolts that hold it on. 9/16 I think. The nuts are on the inside of the trunk. But first remove the license plate light bracket (two phillips screws). Just hold the bumper while you are loosening the nuts so the bumper does not drop on your feet. That's about it - really simple. I put on a new one on the Mach1 a few months ago - piece of cake. Oh - you also have to reuse the old brackets so you need to remove them from the old bumper and bolt them on the new one with those funny looking washers. Thanks, I.m removing trim from my car in preparation for the paint shop.
  10. I am so happy to have found your post. I am removing trim and getting my car ready for paint. The drip rail trim needs to be removed along with other trim prior to prep. Regarding leaks....my right Quarter window is stationary and has always had a slow leak. I have already removed the interior quarter panels. I have a complete set of Ford Shop Manuals and no where is there any mention of how to remove trim from drip rails. Thank You so much. Outrider4 1971 Mach 1 351C
  11. Ready to replace shocks on my Mach 1. Looking at QA-1 shocks. Anyone have these on their Mustang ? Would like some feed back on this brand before pulling the trigger.
  12. I have a FiTech throttle body FI and a 14 inch air cleaner on it now. The MSD 8350 with wires installed will interfere so a 13 inch air cleaner from NPD will fix it. I HOPE Thank you for your feedback and good luck with yours. Outrider4
  13. Thanks for the feedback. I can't run a stock air cleaner. I have throttle body fuel injection and it won't fit. There is also a fractional difference in the height of your 8577and the 8350. My plan is to run a 13 inch air cleaner. Thanks again for you feedback. Outrider4
