    Parts Wanted Wanted "1972 Fastback front windshield A-Pillar plastic Trim"

    Thanks, yeah 30" is pretty large for a a regular printer, but still doable. And I hear that, complex shapes can be maddening to get a decent scan. On the texture, I'd look at doing that a couple different ways. First thought is don't bother trying to get a good scan of it, just focus on the...

    Parts Wanted Wanted "1972 Fastback front windshield A-Pillar plastic Trim"

    I have a couple printers, including one that's a bit larger. This is why I was asking as I've had my eye on this and a few other interior parts for awhile now. Any chance you can get some basic dimensions of it, I'd be curious to see if it'll even fit either of my printers. Yep this is very...

    Parts Wanted Wanted "1972 Fastback front windshield A-Pillar plastic Trim"

    I'd love to try and get a good scan and see how well these would 3D print, but of course you need a good set to be able to pull that off. It would no doubt be a tough print, but I'd really like to try that out.

    Looking for opinions on blackout alternative

    I was just writing a response that was almost word for word what Mark says here, then looked up and saw his comment, so I'll just say I agree with all that completely. I currently have my hood wrapped in matte black and will start working my way back on the car this summer. Hopefully it fares...

    Inner fender splash shields

    Are there any pics or drawings about where these go or how they're installed? I'm missing I think all of these and have no idea how they are installed. Thanks

    71 Mustang Gets Explorer drive train!

    If you're looking for that info and can help with a bit of that. I did the swap from a 2000 Explorer Sport Trac which is about the same width but the center is offset. Unfortunately the doc I somehow managed to mangle the doc I had a lot of the details in, but here's a couple things I used. I...

    Reinforcing Bondo

    Same here. I've had that stuff covering me head to toe after a few boat repairs and it felt and acted like regular filler dust. For me anyway, no itchiness and was very strong. I've definitely had and hated that issue when cutting or sanding actual fiber glass parts.

    Reinforcing Bondo

    Is your bad experience with getting itchy from this stuff from working with fiberglass or fiberglass filler? I've personally never had any issues working with glass filler like glass reinforced bondo where working with actual fiberglass I get it bad. I've always found working with the glass...

    New Toys Bought

    Wow those look great. I hadn't seen the center pod gauges before, is that new? And one of my peeves with Dakota Digital had always been that they turn that gas gauge into a clock. Nothing against clocks, I just would rather it stay a gas gauge or something else. I even like the font they use...

    Kill switch system? Your thoughts?

    Some nice ideas in here. Not sure if someone mentioned it yet, but having a manual transmission will stop a lot of people. Since my car is fuel injected, I've thought of cutting off one off the tach signal to the EFI. That would let the car turn over, have spark and have fuel pressure, but the...

    Rear end swap

    I did that swap as well. From a 2000 Explorer Sport Trac with 4.10s and LSD. It all mostly worked well. Brakes were simple and even the parking brake worked using some adapters. I used these perches https://www.ebay.com/itm/143192608713 The one issue I had and actually still have is the offset...

    I just installed yet another set of front seat belts.

    Not sure if this is relevant here, but I recently ran into another local '72 owner that installed a simple drop for the shoulder harness and just installed one myself. Basically just using a bolt in seatbelt extender connected up at the roof and then screw this to the top connector on the...

    DODGY BAD RUST REPAIRS ON UTUBE

    Yes, 100% just talking about cosmetic stuff. Drive around with it looking like a rusty mess or do what you can to make it look a little better and maybe slow down the inevitable if doing a proper repair just isn't an option. There are plenty of places on a car where things can rust out and won't...

    DODGY BAD RUST REPAIRS ON UTUBE

    I'll just reiterate that I agree this is a garbage repair and won't last etc. etc. All I was getting at is some cars aren't worth the time or money to do any kind of restoration. And some people don't have the skills or the money to do it right. And sometimes people are stuck driving that car...

    DODGY BAD RUST REPAIRS ON UTUBE

    While this is pretty hacky, I think there's a place for this kind of thing. If it's old beater you're planning on keeping and just want to make it look less crappy and don't want to spend a lot of money, why not? If you go into it knowing that you'll be doing the same thing in a few years but in...

    How to hold down TMI center console? Also, what shift boot for the mini console?

    OK thanks. Yes, my shifter is round so I'll take a look at those. It's a T56 Magnum and is covered well already. Really looking at more cosmetics at this point.

    How to hold down TMI center console? Also, what shift boot for the mini console?

    Thanks Chuck. Would it be something like this? https://www.npdlink.com/product/boot-transmission-gear-shift-lever/105728? If so, I think (can't find the part #) that I have that installed to keep the bottom sealed, but it's very low profile and sits down below mini console. I'm sort of hoping...
