Re: CopyCatVert

Thanks for posting the pictures. The engine has a wow factor with three two's sitting on top. :thumbup: Seeing that it's your daily driver how's the gas mileage? Steven I haven't really noticed any decrease in MPG over the stock 4bbl so I expect my MPG is comparable to a stock j code. The carbs are...

Re: CopyCatVert

As requested, here are a couple of engine shots. Please excuse the mess. After all, this is still a daily driver.

Re: CopyCatVert

That looks great! You going to use the bottom portion of the back seat from the Jag, too, or have your existing re-covered to match? I'm having the jag leather modified to fit onto the stock cougar seat frame. The shape of the jag seat bottom was all wrong for the cougar and would have created issu...

Re: CopyCatVert

Latest progress report. The front seats are finished except that I need to figure out some type of latch system to allow the seatbacks to push forward so the kids can climb into the back seat. These Jag seats are a zillion times more comfortable than the old Cougar buckets. The rear Jag seatbacks di...

Watching him turn the crankshaft and spec everything with an old school mic and caliper was pure automotive porn. Were I to attempt that, I'd get to the last journal on the damn thing and screw it up.

Re: Duplicolor vinyl and fabric coloring

Looks great! I like the way you used the automatic console pad with your 5 speed. Steven Thanks. I had to get creative with the shifter to make it work, but I really didn't want to cut up the console pad nor fork over the $$$ for a four-speed pad. The shifter boot is made from leather from my old c...

Re: Duplicolor vinyl and fabric coloring

Don't think you'll be missing the NG......the tan looks nice and classy, IMO. Just an FYI, here, I sprayed my light blue door panels with Landau Black SEM....already experiencing wear around the window cranks. Hopefully, that was my inexperience, and not the product. Most likely areas like that had...

Driver's seat heater in action. The indicator light cycles from bright (hot) to dim (low) to off with each click of the switch.
