  1. Thanks for doing that Horsin'! I'm actually digging it with the square lights!
  2. Thanks for the suggestions Don! I think I have a headlight from my old '79 F250 that I can use for the test fit. Great Idea!
  3. Purists, you may want to just scroll past this one :D I've been curious if anyone has thought of or actually converted their round headlights to rectangle head lights? Is it possible? What would it take? Suggestions? Thanks!
  4. ey skeet did the extra pics help you out? They did indeed Mark. Many thanks!
  5. I'd love to see what yours looks like with the side scoops on it. Here's mine so far....still have much more I need & want to do What's the badge in the grille? I like it! Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk Thanks! It is the MFP badge from the original Mad Max movie. I got it from mfpbadges.com.au

  7. when i bought my 73 mach 1 it had side scoops on it. the po put them on because he liked the way they looked on other stangs. they are not functional. i think they look awesome. i dont know what year they are. I'd love to see what yours looks like with the side scoops on it. Here's mine so far....still have much more I need & want to do
  8. This may upset some of the purists. However, I have been thinking about installing side scoops, or vents, behind the doors of my '73 fastback, and was wondering if anyone else has, or has thought about it as well & which style you would go with. I like the style that are on the 70's Australian Falcon XA/XB's (Mad Max), but they don't fit between the door jamb & the wheel arch. Thanks in advance for any insight.
  9. Both of the flashers in my '73 were behind the glove box liner. Hazard flasher just to the inside left, & the turn signal was hanging from above, just right of center. You will have to remove both tail light assemblies, and pry the lens from the plastic housing, and basically sandwich the LED panels in between them. The kit comes with a 'cut to fit' seal that adheres to the inside edge of the housing. This seal is different from the light assembly to body seal. This is also the perfect time to get all of the factory goop cleaned off & put fresh tail light to body seals on. I just used a hair dryer to warm up the factory glue, & an old thinned down metal scraper to gently start prying them apart. I'll try to post some pics of the install instructions a little later.
  10. You're welcome! I'm glad this forum is available & we can all help each other. I hear that! I took mine for a drive after I got everything buttoned up on these, and my next project presented itself...as one of the other threads was titled...'The dreaded heater core" yikes haha Here is a video of my lights after I finished...
  11. Mike, My apologies, I thought you were referring to the led lights, not the flasher. Yes, the sell the flasher by itself. Did you just replace the incandescent bulbs with the LED's? Here's a post I found helpful, just in case: https://www.7173mustangs.com/thread-led-lights-and-flashers-polarity-matters
  12. Thanks Eric! I checked the instructions, and didn't see any way to have the brake lights come on all at once while the turn & hazards remain sequential, sorry. The LED's are all red, so the reverse portion of the lens shines red. There are separate white LED's on the panels for the reverse lights. Hope this helps :) Steve It does - thanks! Now the big question: when the reverse lights are on, and the brake is engaged, do the red LEDs in the reverse light area stay lit, or do they shut off [while the reverse lights are on]? Probably a dumb question, because that would mean the reverse lights would be pink. Unfortunately, I can't answer that at this time. One of the previous owners shoehorned the 351W, and 4 speed top loader in this car, and forgot, or just didn't bother hooking the reverse lights up. And I have just let it go...yes I know...I'm a slacker :whistling:
  13. mjseakan, They are sold by the pair, and come with everything you need to set them up, with the exception of the low current draw flasher. Definitely buy the the solid state flasher from Easy Products if you buy a set. It'll save a bunch of hassle and time.

  15. I received the the flasher from Easy Performance, got it installed & everything is working beautifully! I highly recommend! Here is the link for the flasher, for those interested... https://easyperformance.com/products/universal-flasher-module Here's a video of the final product...
  16. Thanks Tom, I'll give that one a try. Unfortunately the EP27 has too many contacts. However, I contacted Easy Performance, and they now have their own proprietary solid state flasher module for $20, that they claim will operate with input voltages ranging from 5 to 20 volts, and loads from 0.0 to 10 amps. I've ordered one, and will have it Thursday. I'll work on it this weekend & report back.
  17. It is not a hard install. If you hook up the pink wire (key on power) take a few pics on how you route it and where you tie in. I've not tackled this yet. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk I just installed these today, and they are bright! But, I can't get them to work at all with the EL-12L-1 low current draw flasher that was suggested in the instructions. And of course, I get hyperflash from the passenger side with the stock flasher. May I ask if you used the same low current flasher? If so, where did you connect the wire? The gentleman at autozone said I just need the LED load resistors, and I'm thinking of just going that route. Did you find a good route for the pink wire?
  18. Here is the result...two layers of 5% tint on each window, stripped the shine of the trim & clear coated...
  19. Thanks for the info markc. That helped a ton. The passenger side looked as though it had been removed once before, and was siliconed back on. I did decide to clean the trim pieces up with some 320 grit, and just clear coated them. Looks really cool. I'll get pics up shortly. Thanks again!
  20. I decided to buy some new quarter windows for my '73 Fastback. Just got them back from getting tinted, and now I am wondering what the best way is to remove the chrome trim from the original windows, and affix them to the new ones. These are fixed quarter windows that don't go up or down. I've tried searching google, bing, etc., and topics here, but to no avail. Any secrets and tips are much appreciated ;) Many thanks
