    Just installed the Polk Audio speakers into the MP Products Kick Panels with pods

    Obsidian71 2013 TAIL LIGHT INSTALL

    The J I'm sure you have looked at the 2013 tail lights but maybe someone has smacked one up by now and you can get a board from a junkyard. I was just thinking for research on the white/red LEDs and the halos. it looks like the halos are the parking/running lights and the center three are the...

    Custom Tail Lights

    The lenses look GREAT and they look AWESOME on Q's car! I think they'll sell like hotcakes and you'll need to get a manufacturer once you get the final design. Maybe even look into getting them carried by mustang parts shops. Keep up the great work!

    WOW! I think you need a camera crew and you could have a great Overhaulin episode! I also believe Chip Foose would be impressed. I have seen this type of a job done on a 72 Camaro with 98 interior and drive train but a 71-73 Stang is WAY COOLER! :udaman:

    Car running not so good.

    I had the same issue with my car and this sounds so dumb. I went through firing order, gaskets, timing etc.. It was the PVC line got plugged into the power brake booster port on the carb base. On Hollys they look the same. You can try to swap them or just plug both and drive the car. If it fixes...
