Re: 70 passenger window dropped - advice

Yeah, use the 3M channel bond - and make sure you squirt out a good amount before you actually start gluing - to make sure they are mixing properly.

And you might want to check on your driver's side window while you are at it. Get them both done at the same time.

Those 2 hoses I thought disappeared behind that little box actually go into the box...
Is that your little box? Did you remove it?

You might try just trimming some off of the end of the vac hose ~ past the leaky section, and reconnecting it.

Re: HELP - 69/70 Vacuum leak. What is this hose?

I believe that is for the Dist-O-Vac, which is the vacuum operated distributor control doo-dad thingamabob (can you tell I have no idea what it actually does?). It showed up on the '70's, and I believe it has something to do with emissions. There should be a gadget that hooks into your speedometer /...

Re: Eliminators on the Market (October 2018)

Ok, this one has been on my "Mystery" list for a long time. Michelle inherited the car from her father, who used to race it. He was also in the CCOA long ago. Michelle has run in to some life troubles and has to sell her Eliminator... '70 w/ 351, Auto. Competition Yellow, Houndstooth interior. No Do...

Re: Eliminators on the Market (October 2018)

the one in MN still there. for 13.5k I can't believe that! Maybe a picky seller? I understand he's a bit difficult to get in touch with, so I bet it will take someone actually going and meeting him in person, seeing the car in person, and sealing the deal. Saw some more pics of it on FB ~ looks fai...

Re: 1969 Cougar in new movie

Yeah, it has pretty much all the details - except that stripe! Maybe some movie guy thought it was too gaudy?

Re: Daily driver Eliminator - am I crazy?

Michael, did you just diss my 351 Eliminator??????????? :naughty: :D :lol: LOL! I would never do that, you know I love Eliminators :-) But I would rather actually see them on the road instead of parked in the garage. Sure, there are exceptions - top notch restored or very original unrestored cars s...

Re: Daily driver Eliminator - am I crazy?

Bill, meaning modern mods to an Eliminator would hitt the resale value? Yeah, guess that’s the gist of my question. Should Elimiators be kept stock to “preserve history” and I should get a base to play with and modernize as needed for a daily? Then again, I don’t see me selling in the future. Thank...
