Re: Who’s Car?

If I could do it over again, I would be a lot younger and thinner (lol).
The signboard is awesome, I am surprised how many people actually take the time to read it to the end, some even come and ask questions.

Re: First gen Mercury Cougar history chart poster

Originally, with this thread, I thought there was going to be more updates and a final "come and get it" post, but there wasn't. I guess the "out of sight, out of mind" syndrome kicked in... at least for me. When Stuart posted that he had received his poster, it re-ignited my interest. Hopefully it ...

Re: First gen Mercury Cougar history chart poster

Re: Need tips! Rear Leaf Spring Installation Video

Don, all the relevant torque specs are in every shop manual at the end of each section. In the suspension section there is a description of the procedure to remove and replace the rear leaf springs. My experience in doing this to Heather's 69 XR-7 convertible and my 68 XR-7 in July and August this y...

Re: sunroof and lanyards

As for the lanyards - there was a gentlemen who was reproducing the G unique lanyards and click-pins. Sorry, I can't remember his name and don't know if he is a member on this forum but he would regularly show up at Carlisle with some inventory. I purchased a set from him then. Maybe Scott Ferguson...

Re: 68 G valance

If the original Marchal lights were recalled, I doubt that the valance would’ve been changed to properly fit the Lucas lights. The original Lucas light valances were also notched up where the lights were mounted. Only the second generation of the fog light buckets I had made had the mount tab welded...
