  1. not very much a horror story but.....when I first to my '72 in Feb of 2020 I brought it to a local restoration shop. I needed the battery apron replaced, rust around the taillights fixed also. Before I brought it to them I had tried to address a paint chip in the hood and F&%ked up down to the primer. They said they could fix it by painting 1/2 of the hood as the argent in the middle kind of divides the two green halves of the hood. They did paint it BUT about 3 inches from the chip I messed up were 3 other small chips. They painted right over them, no attempt to smooth them out or climate them at all. Paint matches pretty well, enough were you have to stare at it to see the difference, more pronounced under florescent lights. My car is a driver so I am ok with it but why they could not spend 5 minutes sanding down those 3 chips I will never know? I asked them if they ran out of sandpaper when I picked it up but at that point I did not want them to try anything else. Next stop was looking for a shop to replace the windshield and back window, I did the size glass. Rusty Classic Restorations was the only one I could get to do it. When I picked up the car they said "we could not get the top of the back window trim down". I said it is because you did not put in a clip there (I gave them a bag of brand new clips). Of course the only way to fix that is to pull the window and put in a clip but again I took it home not wanting them to touch it any more. I did manage to JB weld in two clips that make it work while the window was in place.
  2. This am is 7 Bear Sunday. Mom w/3 cubs on the side of the house and mom w/2 cubs out back. Mom/2 eventually came into he back yard to clean off the bird feeding area they had already raided earlier. Hoping they do not get together as mom/3 is mean. I have had to break up bear fights a few times over the years. Every day we have either one of these moms with her cubs here but this is one of the rare times they are here at the same time. 617627496_7bearsunday008.MOV1182725054_7bearsunday010.MOV
  3. if anything I probably used adhesion promoter like this https://www.autozone.com/paint-and-body/primer/p/rust-oleum-base-adhesion-promoter-primer-spray-11oz/379798_0_0?cmpid=LIA:US:EN:AD:NL:1000000:GEN:71700000069889792&gclid=Cj0KCQjw0emHBhC1ARIsAL1QGNdPSEVeFt90povFCZhPkZrQfJ_Bjz-uyU3CvKzwUXfMaSoc_qbRT7saAo0lEALw_wcB&gclsrc=aw.ds
  4. I went low tech, Krylon Fusion metallic Aluminum and to me looks just fine next to the argent stripe
  5. If I remember correctly I used a washer when installing my Volante wheel for the same reason.
  6. can we see a picture of your rear end (car) as I am wondering if you see the shackle.
  7. then it looks like my hoses are correct then, thanks all.
  8. That is where it is confusing. 1 schematic shows lines like mine but other looks to have the hoses reversed at the block and pump.
  9. I did a search and this question has been asked many times but still not a clear understanding for me. Some threads, due to age, are missing the pictures. Anywho..... I had my car over to a shop that I hope will be taking it in soon for some work I need help with. One of the things I need accomplished is a fine tune of the a/c system. I replaced everything from the firewall forward, vacuumed and re-charged but it still is not working as well as I think it can. When the shop owner was looking at the engine bay he thought that my heater lines were not hooked up correctly. I installed them as they were on the car when I purchased it. The heater hose that connects to the nipple from the firewall on the driver side (on the right in the first picture) has the a/c water control valve in the line and ends up connected to the engine block as seen in the second picture. The other hose connects to the nipple on the passenger side and that hose runs to the water pump as seen in the last picture. Are these correctly installed on my 351c with a/c? I did just order a new water control valve to replace the original one still in use. thanks
  10. It should be a standard 14" x 3" filter (I assume) and I see no problem with using an KN open top filter as well.

  12. I was thinking that the wide argent part of my lower quarter panel is a decal but I do not see it on any vendors list. Is this part paint or a decal, the wide one that wraps to the bottom and into the wheel well?
