Re: Installing Speaker Pods

Not really disagreeing with David above, and I'm sure it's probably easier to get the washer pedal out with the vent removed first, but I eliminated my washer system and the vent has never been out of the car. I yanked it close to 18 years ago. So I can't recall how difficult it was. But I don't thi...

Re: Tire size

Nice going IKE!

Bad advice to recommend 17" wheels when the original poster never asked for recommendations for 17s and already purchased 15s. Not everybody wishes to upsize beyond 14s or 15s, and nowwhere does it say they're brand new and can be returned.

Re: Tire size

I would consider the 17" offerings if they come in your choice of rim. There isn't much available rubber wise anymore. I put my 15 X 7 away and went 17X7 and 17X8 respectively. I think it's a little late for that. It sounds to me like the original poster already bought the 15" wheels. Yes, tires to...

Re: 68 Cougar Front Grill Removal or Not When Painting the Whole Vehicle

If I'm doing a full paint job, I remove EVERYTHING, especially on a car I want to turn out nice. Daily drivers and beaters, just mask it all off.

Re: 100,000 Mile Club Challenge

I'll eventually hit 100K. Currently I'm right around 65K on mine and I haven't driven it more than around the block in the last seven years. This car was never my daily driver and I have multiple other cars. So my "classic miles" get spread around. For example, one Delta 88 saw 140K under my right f...

Local, what's up with the stink bug look there? lol
Wheels and tires fill the fenders.

Look up Bobby Alloway's Hot Rod Shop. I'm a big fan of his style.

Re: Ride height

If you're wanting to see a level stance, then stock replacements will get you the closest to that. Granted these cars originally were lower in the rear than the front from the factory. You're current springs have sagged. Fresh ones will bring you back up until they too will eventually get tired and ...

Re: Ride height

Who fed you that load of crap? Shelby lowered the control arms on Shelbys. Doing stupid things like cutting springs actually increases the spring rate. My Shelby is lowered. 1" lower rear springs 180 LB rate with 1" blocks, 1" lower Global West FE 640 rate springs,1/2 Global West spring pacer, roll...
