  1. Dag Nab it............ I know that pain. I had 2 back surgerys and they did fix it. They can fix yours as well. Dont fear. Try laying flat on your back like a carpeted floor. That will seperate ( make a gap) the vertebrae and relieve the pinched nerve some. You must take it easy until they can reduce the swelling. If not you will lose the feeling in your foot(as I did) permanently. Feels like your walking on a ping pong ball all the time. Take it easy!
  2. Hi, I had a question on buffing out aluminum trim pieces. I have the buffer and the compounds. The colors i have are...... Black/grey, Red Jewelers rouge, Brown tripli, Green rogue. The 71 mach trim must have a coating on it like laquer or? The compounds wont buff it off. I painted some epoxy paint remover on it, not sure it removed it either? I dont think it did? I have lots of experience buffing and hot tank bluing guns. I never have polished aluminum. Thanks for your help!
  3. Thanks Guys for your kind words and support! Over the next 3 weeks they will try to extract enough stem cells from her and then transplant them back into her. We heard today the cancer is in her lungs and stomach again. The bone cancer for some reason left her bone marrow and spread. She is the first patient to have this happen. Goes to show all cancers, bacteria and virus's mutate and make themselves stronger by the day. David, I did get the hood stencil rub back :-) from the a*& holes. When the new shop gets done I will return it. Many Thanks for making that bugger for me.
  4. Finally I got Sallys Mach 1 back. I hired a pissed off attorney, tow truck, 3 big guys (Gweedo's ;-) and demanded it back through the Sheriff. I gave the date and time we would be there and it was setting out by the road when I got there. The damn pussys didnt even come out to meet us, HuH. Was 7.5 months of bulls%%T and wasted time. Im out 5k because they didnt do there work. I will let the attorney handle that part of there crap. I got a picture (one side) of the strip and epoxy primer before I payed, guess what they did? They stripped and epoxy primed one half the car and thats the
  5. If you have correct power at the horn? Turn the screw at the back of the horn 1 turn forward then 1 turn back. This screw sets the vibratory action of the horn. Often it becomes stuck or sticky not allowing the horn to work. If you hear the honk start to work? adjust the screw until you get a good tone.
  6. When I was growing up my Dad would contract with hospitals for there Xray bath solutions. He paid a little to nothing for 5 gallon cans of it. I was 10 years old and would follow him into the hospital and help carry out the buckets. They weighed as much as me....at least it felt like it. That was 52 years ago ;-) He would then take them to our basement and electroplate them onto I think copper plating. I remember there being a positive and negative polarity that would pull the particulate from the bath. He then went into plating children's or infants shoes for the fire place mantle
  7. Hi everyone. I wish for the covid virus to be over! I wish for life to get itself back to some normalcy. I wish for my wife's well being. Her happiness and for God to look over her. Friday the cancer center called and told us the cancer is back and its really pissed this time. We used all the big guns with the car t cell transplant. It was successful for 4 months remission. I wish everyone a happy Christmas. Rod and Sally
  8. I watched this 73 sell on ebay. interesting selling price. There are some good pics of the car all the way around.

  9. Interesting article covering some of the failures and fixs to the gt-40 Enjoy https://performance.ford.com/enthusiasts/media-room/2020/12/gt40-development-.html
  10. Last fall I posted a thread on the door panel trim. I had listed the vendor for the contact paper as well. I did find my old picture. So........ need one of the computer gurus to find the thread? I cant find it. This was very good vinyl, it wasn't cheap either I think 40-$50.00. When you look at the wood grain it was actually indented in the pores. looks really real. I remember posting that it wasnt perfect but looked pretty good.
  11. Welcome to the herd :-) from Idaho where we do have wild horses.
  12. Agree on the 303 product. I have used it for 20-25 years and always have a gallon for my boat and cars and whatever. It was called aerospace 303 because it was developed for nasa. Works great with really good UV protection while softening the vinyl or plastic and great on fiberglass. I soak wiring harness's in it to soften up the wire coating. Mind you it will not take care of 50 year old wiring under the hot hood.
  13. Making memories.......... Keep it up! And nice work at that.
  14. Man....... I wanna go hunting there! Out here thats a 4 point :-) peculiar how the point count changes across the Mississippi river. Put that sucker on dry ice and ship it to me Congrats!
