Re: WCCC Photo Contest 2018

Well, the contest has come to a close! I have my work cut out for me, going through all the entries and figuring out which ones to feature in the calendar. There are some great photos this year, and it's always fun to see the variety of cars and locations. As with last year, I'm going to keep the wi...

Re: New Walking Cat Rubber Floor Mats

That SEM paint is magical, I tell ya. We'll have to see how well it holds up to foot scuffing, the next time that guy shows up.

Re: Question about nuts and bolt restoration

I'd avoid painting fasteners if possible. I've been taking a gentle cleaning approach with a brass wire brush to knock off the crud and surface rust without removing whatever coating is on them, then soak in a good penetrating oil & wipe with rags as needed. This gives them a nice clean dark look, t...

Re: New Walking Cat Rubber Floor Mats

Here's an update on the painting experiment! A customer stopped by with a blue '68 so I took the opportunity to throw these painted mats in and take some pics. They had plenty of time to cure and they look pretty nice! He's going to keep them in place for a while and see how they wear. Obviously, th...

Re: halogen headlight conversion kit

When I go to this site, The application does not say for my 1973 Cougar. Can you check it out and see if it will work or not? I already ordered the other outside Plasma replacement bulbs. Oops, I posted the 67-68 version by mistake. 69-73 version is here. I think the main difference is the relay wi...

Re: New 1157 "Plasma" LED Taillight Bulbs: Friggin' Bright!

This was very informative. I just ordered 10 bulbs and what was said I needed to make it work. Now what about the head lights high and low beam upgrade? Do you have something for this? The only thing I have run across so far is the Xtravision H5006 Low beam and the H5001 high beam. What do you know...

Re: The Snowball Saga - '68 Standard Revitalization Project

Thanks! It's been a monumental undertaking, but the end is in sight. Interior is one of the next things on the list, as soon as I get the front and back glass in. I'm looking forward to that stage. As of now, I finally have all the side windows installed and adjusted. That was a pain but I'm pretty ...

Re: Not a Cougar but a darn cool ride

That's awesome. I have no idea what the going rate is for those, as they seem to be quite rare. 26k sounds like a lot to me though.

Re: 68 R Code

Nice work Royce! I just went through the side window assembly process on mine and can attest that it is indeed a PITA. I was also wondering how the heck they did it quickly on the assembly line and got everything perfectly adjusted in minutes.

Re: The Snowball Saga - '68 Standard Revitalization Project

Going through this right now on my 67. What a job! Did it all work well once you tried it all? I’m wondering if I should replace my vacuum actuators because I tested them with a vacuum pump and they all leak down to 10-12 lbs after abut a minute or so. One leaks all the way don after about three mi...
