  1. Because I love to spend other people's money..... https://www.amazon.com/FASZFSAF-Semi-Automatic-Hydraulic-Anti-Storm-Retractable/dp/B091L481TS/ref=sr_1_22?dchild=1&gclid=CjwKCAjwzOqKBhAWEiwArQGwaAUSWnhKvLc66zfCSHjlOxc1-FCz-5skhcJ8lMZmHVrBNBYFE31pKBoCFiEQAvD_BwE&hvadid=485162166884&hvdev=c&hvlocphy=9010858&hvnetw=g&hvqmt=e&hvrand=11768107445839763223&hvtargid=kwd-306694408227&hydadcr=8791_11538609&keywords=folding+garage&qid=1633356822&sr=8-22
  2. mine also needs replacing as it had a rust hole it it when I bought it. I could have lived with that but I had a accident where it slipped off of a jack onto a couple jack stands and damaged it some more. I have a replacement piece ready to go, just need to find a shop that will do it. I have been waiting on one shop who will do it but still not spot open or me.
  3. You mean this one? https://www.cjponyparts.com/dynacorn-crossmember-front-mustang-1971-1973/p/3648NG/?gclid=CjwKCAjwhuCKBhADEiwA1HegOWps6Svk9-4bWCOpmuNbylpwmmH8C4Q2JLHRSgKx37Klm5v40hhFuRoCJnAQAvD_BwE
  4. I had the same problem with my Grant when I bought my car. Finally found the best solution: Throw it and the wheel in the trash (or sell it to someone who loves a challenge) and buy a much better wheel with a great horn button set up. I went with a Volante wheel and never looked back. https://www.amazon.com/Mustang-Leather-Steering-Adapter-Running/dp/B06X6HQ39D https://www.volantesteeringwheels.com/Articles.asp?ID=265
  5. I replaced all my glass with a set from Auto City Classic, fit IMO was great https://www.autocityclassic.com/1971-1973-mustang-fastback/

  7. I have used them a few times early on in my Mustang restro but prefer Kentucky Mustang, NPD or OMS. I did need some dash clips and the only seller I saw was Mac's, bought off of their ebay sale and after 5 days of no shipping I contacted them to find out they were on backorder. WHY does a seller sell on ebay if they do not have a product? Another thing with Macs/Ecklers is they often send out emails with discount coupons but they never seem to work for any parts I want. No, they are down on my list for sure.
  8. one on fleabay https://www.ebay.com/itm/353588995467?epid=1823584119&hash=item52538be58b%3Ag%3AeyIAAOSwV6Bg3z8i&LH_ItemCondition=4
  9. well it turns out the culprit was the ac heater control valve switch (behind the glove box liner). When I had the liner out I saw the switch was old, original and was just a hair shy of closing all the way when the temp is turned to the coolest setting. I put a new one in, and in the process of putting back the liner with the extra fuse box I have in it, I knocked off one of the vacuum lines to the switch. So when I started the car there again was the air blowing from the defrost vents, not the dash vents. I then saw the air conditioning water control valve , the one on the water line in the engine compartment was not closing, that is what the ac heater valve switch does. So when I looked at the new switch I had just put in I saw the vacuum line off and re-connected it everything then worked. Water line closed in the engine compartment and the air was now blowing out of the dash vents as well.
  10. what the heck, just ordered a black "oem tooling" one from KY mustang as I realize whatever I do to fix my dash will just look like that, a "fix". And the center part that is damaged on mine is the most prominent part of the dash pad and it is only money.
  11. thanks, sounds like I better try to repair mine the best I can, not a show car but I do want it to look as best as possible. Will try my repair before going to a new one..
  12. Thinking of a new dash pad only because the center part that goes around the center dash pod (two "ears") has the ends messed up from age. Other then that my dash pad is in great condition. I will be trying a few fixes but that is all they would be, a cover up of sort. Are the repro dash pads any good? I would, of course, have to dye one green (like I did my console) so probably have to go with a black one.
  13. Saw this in fleabay the other day, could be a new A pillar repro out there? Wonder how good they are? https://www.ebay.com/itm/274935411801?hash=item40036d7459:g:qaYAAOSwG1thNVE0 https://www.ebay.com/itm/274935348211?hash=item40036c7bf3:g:MzEAAOSwIUZhNTHW https://www.ebay.com/itm/274935425448?hash=item40036da9a8:g:6MgAAOSwbMdhNViu
  14. Pulled the air control panel, hand maneuvered the vacuum motors and buttoned it all back up. Now everything works as it should so maybe just a gremlin in there
  15. While I am working under the dash I see the heater box looks like it is getting to the end of it's life. I am trying to track down why air is not coming thru the vents, maybe a vacuum thing. But while I am looking at it I am wondering if it is easy enough to remove and replace the heater box with a new aftermarket one. I am not tied to the "original" one and a new one seems like it would work and look better, not worried about what it will cost. I
  16. working now under the dash with the seats out I can see y'all are correct. Just a fuel hose bent and secured by a zip tie to support the box.
  17. well the ducts are all connect correct (or my ducks are all in a row) so it must be something else.
  18. i was just thinking before I saw this that maybe I pulled on the top plastic tube just a little and perhaps it seperated from the part that goes to the vents. Guess I will pull the dash pad and check, thanks
  19. I had the center pod off of my car which, of course, included the air control panel. I did have the dash pad off but I do not think I did anything with the duct work (although I did touch it at some point). Anywho, now the a/c mainly just blowing thru the defrost vents, the high/low setting works diverting air to floor and defrost but nothing really coming from the vents.. I cannot imagine plugging in the vacuum plug incorrectly? Everything worked as it should before I took out the control panel. I did find the vacuum line from the manifold to the canister was off, re attached it but no change.
  20. Asking for a friend While the owner had the interior torn down he pulled it outside to do a water test trying to fix a leak. He had forgotten that he had the top radiator hose off as well as the temp sensor sending plug out and the associated heater hose off. Car sat at idle for about 7 mins before he remembered all of that. Shutting it off, re attaching all hoses and filling radiator he ran it for a few mins and put it away. The next day, after completing killing himself, he ran the car at idle for 15 mins. Nothing seemed out of normal, engine ran fine at idle and reved up to 4k rpm. No leaks, oil looks like it did when changed had a week ago. Did he dodge a bullet or should he lose sleep? Anything he should do at this point or just thank a higher being. Again, asking for a friend
  21. no doubt at the rust. I filled it the best I can with flex paste as probably over the winder I will be doing work on the dash and have more access. Water test in a few days to see if it is sealed.
  22. it is an area I cannot see in the engine compartment but being the just sit there support is a good explanation.
  23. while I am working on eliminating my water leak and replace the temp gauge I was also putting in the sound deadener from the front seats forward that I failed to do when I did the rear. I noticed these two hoses, they are zip tied together, just sitting there. Pretty much on the center of the hump , any idea of what these could be? They look almost like fuel line size????? Sorry, cannot shrink pic at this time.
  24. hopefully I have found the leak. It is about 2" above the arrow on the white tape. I poured in 1/2 gallon of water into the cowl area and had a little come down from there. That is the area I suspected it was by the way the water was on the carpet. I can see a little black stuff goo that had been applied by a prior owner in the past. I will do my best to seal it without taking apart any more of the car. I did try the light thru the cowl area but the hole is so small (by the way the water dripped in) that no light was visible to me.
