  1. Very nice looking car. I love the bright red. Welcome from Ohio.
  2. Sure it's not just the throttle plates base. I've seen a few of those listed for around $40.
  3. Good question. In a nut shell for that few miles once a year would be fine. Does not mater if regular or synthetic. Beside mileage there are a lot of other factors that come into play when considering how often to change oil such as driving conditions and environment . 5000 miles of stop and go is harder on a motor than 10,000 miles of highway driving. Hot climates vs colder ones. Engine run time. A lot of people are only driving short distances to cruise in's and the likes. For these short trips you need to make sure that the engine gets up to operating temperature for a while to evaporate any moisture that occurs from condensation when first starting the engine and it also occurs when the engine is cooling down. This usually requires 10 to 15 minutes of driving. This also applies if you "turn your engine over" once or twice a week to keep thing loose. Make sure that you leave it run enough to burn off any moisture.
  4. Practice makes perfect. I think we all been there before at one time or another.
  5. Hi Sarah and "Welcome" from Ohio. As many of the members have already mentioned you won't find a better site or group of people. We are all here to help each other. From what you wrote it sounds like you got the car in great shape mechanically. Post some pictures when you can.
  6. Glad you found the problem. The type of thing that can easily be overlooked. If you want to try and fix it and can't find where it is leaking and you can put the float in extremely hot water (right before boiling point) and the gas will evaporate and expand and you will see bubbles.
  7. Stay away from Dashes Direct . They do not fit correctly and are undersize. TMI are suppose to be good. Talk to Don at OMS. He can get you taken care of.
  8. Thanks Geoff and Happy Canada Day to you.. Just lying around and resting. A/C went out this morning so I have the window unit from the garage in the house for now. Was plan on working on the car but can't figure out how to get it in the house.
  9. Congrats on your car. Looks like you will be busy for awhile. If you are trying to maintain it's value then the answer is yes. If the car is serial match and all original then any changes will effect it's value. If going for Concours then you will want to keep it "correct parts". From my understanding on the internal parts of the engine you are going to want to keep the same specs as factory original. No changes or modification to the engine. Some of the members with concours cars can verify this.
  10. Welcome from Ohio. Nice looking ride.
  11. Should not be a problem unless you used caulking and filled in around the windshield. The clips will still go on if the post are there. Just make sure you get them seated all the way. .
  12. Did you try Don at Ohio Mustang - https://www.ohiomustang.com/store/order_page.asp?itemid=62. I do believe they are all the same. Go from top of door at the rear to the bottom front as shown in your picture.
  13. Here is a previous link on them. Rick Ybarra is planning on making some. Not for sure if he is a member here but he is on the facebook site. Said he was hoping to have some in about a month. If I hear more I will update this post.
  14. She did a great job. She ought to offer to do some for the forum members and make a few bucks.
