Re: Reproduction floors, torque boxes, etc.

Do what I did on my rusty 69 Mach I. It is the only rusty car I ever tackled and I did so because Carroll Shelby did a favor for a friend in 69 and pulled some strings to get a sunroof installed in very loaded 390 4spd car. I paid $2000 for a Arizona no option 6cyl coupe and was able after I took t...

Door Glass...

I am moving very soon and am trying to clear out some extra stuff I have that I will likely never use. A few years back I bought a bunch of glass (and other parts) for cheap. Since I won't use them, and I don't want to store a bunch of glass, I'm offering it up for free. I will have to dig it out to...

Re: My 69 XR-7 S-code

If you could post some pictures and details, it would probably help someone better advise you on pricing.

Good luck with your sale. I have the same car only as a J-code.

Re: 2 post or 4 post lift?

I have a 4-post Bend-Pak and love it, but I have no doubt that a 2-post would be better for working on a car. Although it was an option, I wasn't comfortable putting mine on casters to roll around. First, because I currently have a garage that has a slight pitch to it. Second, because without the ba...

Re: Dynacorn Cougar resto sheetmetal

Crawling underneath I spotted true floorboards, plywood, for the passenger side floor with the convert brace missing. It was a great looking 5 footer. While at college, I bought a 1980 Fiesta from a coworker for $50. I needed to change the front tires due to a poor alignment. When I went to jack up...

Re: How do you decide your order of operations?

There are a couple of considerations: 1) As a driver, safety issues first: Brakes. Electrical. Headlights and turn signals. Seat belts. Steering. Suspension. 2) Again, as a driver, handle functional projects next: Cooling system upgrades or overhauls. Exhaust repairs. Fix gauges or fuel sending unit...
