  1. Turns out with my long tube headers the answer is no. It liked about an 1/8th of an inch no matter how you turned it. So ended up loosening the header to get the box out. I took the header completely off after the fact. New box will be here Tuesday.
  2. I found this article this morning. Not sure how accurate it is so take it for what its worth. https://www.motortrend.com/how-to/1612-hard-core-resto-tech-for-1971-1973-mustangs/
  3. Has anyone changed the box without removing the header? I really don't want to get into removing parts that are not required to be removed. Car is a 71 Mach 1 with 351C with a TKO 600 hydraulic clutch setup, so no zbar to deal with.
  4. "THEY ARE IDIOTS AND YOU ARE TOO IF YOU BUY ONE" Really? You do know what they say about opinions..............

  6. I know how you feel, I waited forever to get my Mustang as well...............
  7. No real opinion, except they had issues at one time with blow outs. That was mainly due to people not properly inflating their tires. At least that's what Firestone said was the issue.
  8. I received my prizes today, minus the decals unless I overlooked them. LOL Anyways I had to try it out, so we just happen to have both the 70 and 71 in the garage. Went around all 8 tires and set the pressures. I guess we hadn't checked them this year as they all were a little off. It has a cool feature where you set the desired pressure and hit the button. It goes to that pressure and shuts off. Everything was packed very well, thanks Barry and whoever donated the prizes.
  9. Does it not show the gap in the second picture?
  10. Thanks this rarely happens. I'm Shocked. Thanks also goes out to whoever donated the prizes.
  11. http://429mustangcougarinfo.50megs.com/lowerstripe1a_small.jpg http://429mustangcougarinfo.50megs.com/lowerstripe2a_small.jpg Lower Blackout The photos above show dimensions for the lower blackout and the pin stripe. Note the seam at the rocker panel is used as reference point. Ford used a special lower body tape stripe to make the pin stripe above the lower blackout. It consisted of (from top to bottom), the pin stripe, then the space, then a 3/4" stripe. The 3/4" stripe covered the merge paint line between the lower paint, and the upper body color. The lower color was sprayed on the car first, then maybe covered/masked over quickly, then the body color was sprayed. The wide (3/4") bottom section of the lower stripe went over the lower body paint merge line to give it a clean straight edge. These stripe kits came in either black or argent to match the lower body color. This was from the 429 Megasite

  13. Going to replace my upper radiator hose (351C). What have people been running with good luck? Not looking for concourse correct, looking for something that will hold up to a lot of driving. Also what size clamps are used? I used the heat shrink ones and have not decided if that's what I am going back with yet.

  17. I think Ford offered the black seats with red inserts (they sell upholstery kits in the black and red) but the pin striping is definitely previous owner addition,
  18. Pretty sure its the same. Just make sure you follow the sequence and check the a couple of times.
  19. Here is a link to the kit I used and they worked very well. https://www.nu-relics.com/Conduit-s/188.htm https://www.nu-relics.com/product-p/87100-2.htm
