    Looking to Refinish Magnum Wheels

    I've searched the forums and have come up with threads that are pretty dated as far as recommendations for companies that will refinish Magnum wheels. I have been poking around da googs and have found plenty of companies who do a bang up job with aluminum wheels, but none willing to take on...

    WTB - Front seat frames

    I am looking for a pair of complete front seat frames in good condition.  All I need is the frames - no upholstery or pads needed.  They can be stripped off and tossed to make shipping easier.  Rails are a plus, as is a seat back, hinge covers and latch release hardware (double bonus if the...

    I have been going through the wiring diagrams on my never-ending quest for a convenience group harness and noticed something that has me puzzled.  On my car and the parts car I had awhile back there was a Belts indicator next to the power top switch.  This lamp would light up whenever the...

    Trick to Removing HVAC Knobs?

    Ok - so what's the trick to removing the small chromed plastic knobs from the HVAC levers?  I don't see any metal tabs or spring releases and there doesn't seem to be any glue residue anywhere, but those things have a GRIP!

    Is anyone aware of a place that would make rubber stamps with the correct fonts and size for reproducing part numbers that were stamped with paint onto various bits and pieces?  I am rebuilding my windshield wiper motor and the part number and build date are stamped in a very conspicuous place...

    1971Suspension and steering

    I noticed a few things while disassembling my front suspension and steering systems.  First, I don't think any of my suspension components have been replaced - ever.  Nothing has a zirk fitting, so I am assuming everything is original.  Second, how many of these components can actually be...

    Clutch rods, equalizer bar, brackets, and Hurst shifter rod finishes for 1971

    Hello - I tried search but came up empty.  I am looking for guidance on the finishes for the clutch and gearbox activation parts.  The MCA judging rules are a bit vague in these areas.  They merely state that the transmission "linkage" is Clear or Yellow Zinc dichromate, reverse lock rod is...

    1971 302 Oil Pressure Gauge Mounting

    I am in the process of getting my '71 302 ready for the engine dyno.  I'm adding the center gauge cluster to my car, and the car that the engine came from (another '71 Convertible built within 2 weeks of mine - holy date codes Batman!) did not have gauges, which means it did not have the sender...

    Does anyone have a bare enough engine compartment that can take a quick photo of the hole pattern for the proportioning valve?  A measurement from a fixed point would be handy too.  I replaced the apron and forgot to replace the holes...

    Under Cowl Insulation

    Does anyone have the insulation that attaches to the cowl/firewall behind the dash panel and over the pedal box?  Mine is long gone and I can't find any reproductions.  This is not the heavy mat that fits the width of the firewall - this is the lighter, plastic faced jute-like stuff that...
