Re: The Snowball Saga - '68 Standard Revitalization Project

Wow, awesome! I guess I missed the post where you had it back out on the road. That's great! Maybe now I'll see you at Cars & Coffee in Wilsonville some time? Car looks great. Excellent update posts, as always. Can't wait to see what's next :-) Thanks Mike! Not a bad idea, I'll have to see if I can...

Re: The Snowball Saga - '68 Standard Revitalization Project

In other news, I've still been trying to get the tuning dialed in. Finally found out that I had some pretty significant vacuum leaks at the intake manifold. So as much as I enjoy going backwards and redoing things, I got to pull the intake back off to re-gasket it. andrew project (1841)-1028.jpg and...

Re: The Snowball Saga - '68 Standard Revitalization Project

Random update time! I've been driving the Cougar a little to shake it out (and use up gas so I could change the faulty sending unit). Here's a random shot from a couple weekends ago. andrew project (1818)-1028.jpg Having determined that the instrument cluster was ok and there were no wiring issues b...

Re: It's got Color!!

Wow, imagine a guy being so busy he doesn't want any exposure. Seems kind of short sighted unless it's a sideline. This doesn't surprise me, EVERYONE is looking for a good body / paint guy who can deliver in a reasonable time frame. He's probably slammed. Gotta love Cardinal Red, that's looking goo...

Re: It's over for me...

I feel you on the "passing on social invitations" part... many times I've turned down friends who wanted to hang out, or going to fun events because I had to work on my car. This is something that I do kinda regret, and a reason I'm looking forward to being done... so I can have a life that isn't ju...

Re: It's over for me...

Yeah, I've spent about 2X what my car would be worth if I sold it, but for me the sentimental value pretty much outweighs everything, and I intend on keeping it forever. It's something that I take pride in, and I wanted it to be a certain way. I've done whatever it takes to get there. It's arguably ...

Re: Same BaT Channel...

Looks like someone got their hands on a very original car, and started to "booger" with it. Luckily most of what they did should be reversible. The incorrect RH mirror may be an issue with the holes they drilled in the door. But yeah, take out the air suspension, lose the tachometer, change back to ...

Re: Chrome Plating original styled steel wheels

The only problem with the new wheels is, lately they've been coming out wobbly right from the factory. WCCC has refused a couple pallets of them, after testing them one by one. Hopefully the manufacturer will get their quality sorted out soon. Be wary if ordering them from other big suppliers who do...

Re: Thoughts on A/C system

Good questions, and I'm in almost the exact same boat as you. So... I have no useful advice but I'll be watching this thread. My original Tecumseh compressor also looks pretty decent and seems to spin fine but has been sitting on a shelf for years and I figure it might be wise to have it rebuilt / s...
