    Silver (or black on doors), where exactly?

    I'm looking for info about how the silver (or black) is supposed to be painted. On this page, there are infos about masks around the doors, but nothing about the doors themselves. http://429mustangcougarinfo.50megs.com/paint_info.htm The exterior skin is obvious, it needs be masked either just...

    It's been a while since I've seen him on here. Often lives comes in between and it's not uncommon that some members go away for a while before comeback. But in case of David (aka  @Carolina_Mountain_Mustangs  ), he is a regular on this forum, may be the most regular of all regulars! I've been...

    Couple of questions..

    Slowly but surely installing some parts back on my 71, I came across a few details.. 1/ What should I use to seal the wipers mechanism (the two rotating bits) once installed back into the cowl? I recall some sticky substance when I've removed them.   2/ I've received an idler arm from moogs...

    Rendez-vous

    One of the first car chase movie... by Claude Lelouche One take, no montage, no edits. He was charged for all the red lights, potential accidents that could have occurred as he refused to tell who drove the car, but not being the driver all was dropped...

    How do I remove this screw?

    Busy putting my proportioning valve apart for a good cleaning and install a new kit. Not a luxury after 50 years :D While one side went out with no problem, the other is something else. There is a screw, it doesn't feel like there is any thread there, so while it turns, it doesn't get out. So...

    A name's not enough...

    Funny how there was no hesitation to crack the "other" manufacturer back in the days... I don't know if that spot has aired lots, but it clearly fits into the myth that 71-73 had become or were lesser cars. The comments on youtube are also a funny read. Most coming from idiots with no source...

    Booster rod adjustable?

    I still have drag on my wheels. Not much effort needed to let them turn by hand, but not free as they should. If the car has not be driven for a couple of days, no drag when I test. After small drives of couple of minutes the problem returns. I'm now pretty sure the rod of the booster is the...

    Would love to see a pict of your thingy...

    On both sides of my 71, the thingy that holds the j-bolt allowing you to fasten the lower side of the fender is gone. As if someone really did not like these thingies! I need make a pair and weld these back. Tried look on my 73, but it's hard to really see without removing.. Sooo if anyone has...

    10w30 or 20w50?

    Hey guys, Just received oil filters, so I can change oil now. Just before I do... I used to push 20w50 mineral rich in ZDDP for my 351c, but saw on few occasions across some reads that 10w30 could be a better choice. What are your thoughts on this?

    Alternative to timeline like viewing for Activity

    Hey @RocketFoot I got one request. I'd like very much to have either the "activity" option being modified or another way to browse the same results. Right now, we have this timeline display, and in practice what you get is that if one or two threads are having active talks that all the other...

    Is this not crooked?

    Busy looking at what I will need to restore the steering linkages, I've looked closer at the drag assy and it looks like it's crooked. Didn't really looked at it from this angle before, but both the eyes for the tie rods balljoints should be on the same line no? (weather is too bad to go crawl...

    Mirror tell me, what do I miss here?

    Busy placing back my driver door deluxe panel and got stuck on the mirror knob. It's been a very long while since I've removed it and when it was on, I recall it never stood properly in place. So looks like I miss some kind of extra large ring/washer (looking at recess on cardboard behind) to...

    How is this one supposed to be installed?

    Busy refreshing the interior of my 73, I came across a tiny prob I forgot about. Last time I did the interior (20+ years ago), these two plastic covers on the rear plank were loose and I never seen them installed correctly. I did use at the time some long screws that basically kept them in...

    Beltline Weatherstrip 8 Pc. Grande/Coupe

    Bought a 8 pieces Beltline Weatherstrip 8 Pc. Grande/Coupe kit at CJP. Was happy to see the chromy bits (SS) for which I've bought it are very close to the original. But when I've finally removed the old one from the door, I saw a significant diff in rubber height, where the original would...
