  1. I like it. This is a professional build. Love the exhaust and the gas door and license plate mods. I saw aluminum heads on it long tube headers aluminum radiator and electric fan. Disk brakes It's worth some money
  2. Scheduled for the Kansas City Auction next month. Wonder what it is going to sell for. Our cars are going up in value: https://www.mecum.com/lot-detail.cfm?lot_id=KC1214-199568
  3. The wheels sit flush and give a slight rake to the stance This is the set I went with http://www.ebay.com/itm/CPP-Boss-338-wheels-rims-18x8-20x10-fits-FORD-MUSTANG-GALAXIE-FAIRLANE-GT-/140902534853?pt=Motors_Car_Truck_Wheels&hash=item20ce720ec5&vxp=mtr
  4. It's a Spectre Dual Air Intake I picked up from Summit Racing.
  5. OK, I installed my bulbs this afternoon. I went out to Super Bright LEDs in Earth City, MO and picked up a bag of bulbs. I'm pleased with the end result because they aren't too bright and I can definitely see everything clearly in the dark now. They also match my underdash LEDs, so I'm digging the ambiance..... Here's what I got: 194 LED Bulb - 4 LED Wedge Base. They were $2.59 each. I spent a total of around $35.00 for what i needed. URL: https://www.superbrightleds.com/moreinfo/miniature-wedge-base/194-led-bulb-4-led-wedge-base/198/866/ What I did: 1. I removed the blue diffusers. They were glued in, so if you lightly pry on them, they will come out. 2. cleaned the cluster as best as I could 3. I didn't paint anything 4. put the bulbs in and hooked everything back up
  6. Thanks. You are absolutely right, it's never done. When I say it's done, it's driveable. I have about 15 miles on it now. Still chasing a few bugs here and there, but she's getting closer......
  7. Today I pulled the cluster again. I removed the blue diffusers and ordered the blue LEDs form super bright LEDs. They are 30 mins from my house. Didn't know that. Tomorrow I'll pickup the lights and install. One thing to note when I took out the diffusers I plugged the cluster back in and it's brighter. I can see all the gauges. Last time I put auto zone sylvania bulbs in. Without the blue diffusers the gauges look orange now. When I get everything reinstalled I'll post pics
  8. Yeah, the car otherwise is nice. They could sell those garbage wheels, and have enough money to buy a proper set of wheels and put the suspension back the way it's supposed to be.
  9. Cool, can you send some links to what would be needed? I'm cheap... Much rather pay ten bucks vs 60. I bought a set of bulbs and installed, they are only slightly brighter than before.
  10. I just saw this on ebay, and was wondering if anyone here has purchased and installed? All I'm really looking for is an improvement over the stock dim lights, and this seems like it might work. http://www.ebay.com/itm/71-73-Ford-Mustang-5X-LED-Gauge-Cluster-Light-Kit-STD/190283456641?_trksid=p2045573.c100033.m2042&_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D26215%26meid%3D9f28a331f34c4458bea830cd12767803%26pid%3D100033%26prg%3D10926%26rk%3D4%26rkt%3D4%26sd%3D281276089154
  11. I work for MasterCard Worldwide. I'm an Operations Architect. I'm ITIL V3 Certified for Incident, Problem, and Change framework, and I work with our various internal application Teams (ever heard of Priceless!) to deliver high availability applications across multiple platforms (JBOSS, Websphere, etc). Been in this business for 19 years and love it.
  12. I get it. Not my style but I get it. No different that folks putting squirel tails on their antenna back in the day or a chain steering wheel in the 70's. It's a style that started in the Miami and other Southern cities. That said, there's no way I'd ride that. For the money spent on wheels and tires, you'd have at least thought that they'd upgrade the brakes. Rear drums on 26" wheels? Hope he never has to make an abrubt stop.....
  13. You can find small block 302 motors anywhere for cheap. I'm sure that there are some good machine shops in Louisiana that will build a nice solid motor cheaper than buying a crate motor. If they are local and you have problems, won't be as much of a hassle as trying to get service from a shop hundred or thousands of miles away. A reputable shop will blueprint your motor setup based on your goals and should give you a fair estimate including a warranty. I'd go with a nice used 302 block with a 331 rotating assembly and a nice set of cylinder heads, headers, etc. Add a nice solid C4 Transmission and you should be ready to go. Good luck on the projecdt.
  14. I'm in MO and do the same thing. I run a "Ford Racing" Logo Plate on the front and keep the MO license plate for the front under the seat.....
  15. Added a little mood lighting this afternoon. Installed Blue LEDs under the dash and wired to a switch on the Center Console.
  16. 2.67 in St. Louis. Btw keep us in your prayers. We live 3 miles from Ferguson.........
  17. It's sweet! Who's Mac? Mac's auto parts. They sell good stuff http://www.macsautoparts.com/ Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
