  1. Looking really nice. The seats look great. Hard to get used to seeing the steering on the right side. You might want to move your restoration post over to https://7173mustangs.com/forums/forum/78-individual-project-build-threads/.
  2. Really great work as usual. I like the contrast with the zinc plating.
  3. Not the news you want to hear but it could of been worse. Hope fully the cam is ok.
  4. Great to see farther son/daughter projects. They grow to fast and are gone before you know it. Looking forward to seeing more on your progress.
  5. It would be worth the try. I would use a soft plastic putty knife so it would less likely to tear the headliner. I would try a section first and if it seems to be working okay I would pull it back out and put some type of adhesive on it and then redo it.
  6. I did them myself. Watched some videos and figure I give it a try. Took some time and patience but they turned out nice.
  7. The headliner should actually be under the rear window gasket wrapped around the pinch weld as noted earlier by Don. I would try to push it under the rubber gasket before pulling the rear window. I would try to pull it back in the center and will holding it there work each side outwards. If you can get it to tuck under it I would use some type of contact cement or other adhesive to hold it. Although pulling the rear window is not the hardest thing to do it will require a new gasket along with sealant to replace and a couple of hours of work. You also stand the chance of it breaking during the process or it leaking after you get re-installed.
  8. They look really nice. Adds a nice contrast to the cars color.
  9. Thanks for the follow up. I currently have a Duraspark with MSD setup. I like the idea of being able to change the timing so easily along with the other features the Progression Ignition offers. I guess I'll add it on the "to get list" along with the new Addco sway bars and the Classic Auto Air unit.
  10. Sounds like you have a couple of problems and found at least one of them with the plug wires. I would also check the battery. You could have a shorted cell. Just because a battery will take a charge does not mean it is good. I would take the battery to an auto store and have them check it.
  11. I am getting ready to start some upgrades and have also looked into these. I'm having problems finding any real independent ratings or reviews. I know yours is working well but before I consider putting out that kind of money I would like to find more input from people that have them. In your research did you come across any other reviews other than on their website?
  12. I'm really sorry to hear about your accident. Hope you have a fast recovery and there isn't any long-term pain as you mentioned. Considering the situation it could have been a lot worse if you would have gotten your face burnt with no one around. If I was closer I be willing to help you out and take "your car" to the car shows. Get well and try to stay safe.
  13. Any of them will work except for the Sport R. As the name implies the Premium is the better grade of the two standard seat foams. The Sport foam offers more increased bolster support - foam on the side - helps hold you in the seat when you take those sharp turns . I used the Premium when I did mine and am happy with it.
  14. I check the manual and it says to pull the box. It might be possible but part of the problem I see would be trying to get to the clips that hold the top and bottom halves together off on the firewall side. I guess if you loosen the firewall and cowl mounting screws you might be able to access them. Might also need to loosen the blower motor The heater core is in the bottom half. I would bite the bullet and go ahead and pull the whole box. I know having ac makes it a pain due to having to disconnect the lines and then recharging the system but by pulling it would give you the opportunity to replace any of the gaskets and seals if needed.

    New guy!

    Welcome from Ohio. As mention above please post some pics.
  16. Very very nice. I really like the way they fit the car. What year fox body did they come out of?
  17. I ran mine wiring up along the inside of the bezel. There is enough room for the connector on the right side at the top by the map light.
  18. Going to look great once they are in. Don't forget the Mach 1 Seat Buttons that go on them. BUTTON SET, SEAT BACK, MACH 1 - #64824-6A - National Parts Depot (npdlink.com)
  19. Sorry to hear but I know the problem. Knowing the loudness of my car before I stared my retro I decide to forget about updating the sound system knowing that it would be a waste of money.
  20. Very nice looking. How's the sound on the new radio?
  21. The name of my car varies depending on how it is running!
  22. I agree with you for the idiot's that are showing off. The ones that are legally racing get a "get out of jail pass" in my book.
  23. I know you are stressed out over this and as you said you just want it to be over. This might sound crazy but this would make a good case for the TV show "The People's Court". Based on all the info I don't see how you could loose. Could sue the guy for up to 5K and get a free trip. No guarantee you would get on the show but worth a try in my opinion. You already have all the evidence and everything you need in this post. No lawyers involved, just fill out the form and see what happens. Would teach him a good lesson also.

  24. Took 3 years. Most of my work was done during the spring, summer and fall months due to no heat in the garage. I added a wall mounted heater in the garage the last year I worked on it but still didn't do that much during the extremely cold months. I did all the mechanical and interior work including the re-upholstery. I watched a lot of video's and read a lot of the post on the things I wasn't familiar with. I found a body shop that was willing to work with me on price for doing the body work and painting. I had to do all the stripping and delivered the bare panels and car to them. They did the needed body work and paint and delivered the car back with the hood, doors, fenders and trunk lid back on. I took it from there and finished it. I also lay out their business cards at any cruise ins or shows I go to as part of the deal.
