Re: Back firing

Re: Back firing

Do they supply the carbon fiber dash insert or did you have to make it? If the latter, how did you do it? Looks great!

Re: 67 Cougar tail lights

Welcome. Best group of guys here with lots of knowledge of these cars.

I had the exact same issue with my 69 XR7 and turned out to be a faulty headlight switch. Once replaced, it solved my issue.
