Headlamp warning

I admit it. I've left my lights on more than once and run the battery down. This afternoon I came up with a cheap, easy solution using parts from my junk pile. All you need is a normally open relay, an old seat belt buzzer, a couple of those wire splice things and some short scraps of wire. Installa...

best subframe connectors?

Unless removal is a priority, weld them to the car in as many places as possible. Also be sure they tie into the torque boxes. The front frame rails from that point back really just hold up the floor pans. The "frame" of the car is the body itself.

68 XR7 Rear Seat Bottom Upholstery

I've got a Nugget gold rear seat bottom cover for sale. This is just the cover, not the frame or padding. There are no rips or tears on the vinyl or leather itself, but the canvas-type material at the very back is torn where it folds over the seat frame. However, this looks like it could be repaired...

Re: CopyCatVert

Update on the interior project. The leather for the rear seat bottom arrived this morning and is off to the upholsterer to be made into a custom cover to match the Jaguar pattern. Hopefully my 2-seater days are coming to an end. The kids are getting anxious to rid around with the top down.

Re: Kick panel speakers on 68

I can also write about how to do it the wrong way! When I was 16 I had to get a chunk of steel removed from my eye when I tried to cut out those speaker openings in my first '67 Cougar, while laying on the floor board using a partially disassembled (so I could make it fit) jig saw. Turns out someon...

Re: Electronic Low Fuel Indicator (ELFI)

Yorgle's daily driver ELFI report: With about two weeks of daily use I am happy to report the new ELFI works perfectly. No flickering or blinking whatsoever, regardless of bumps, corners, hills, small Clintonville-type earth quakes, etc. More importantly, the world's best customer service! Thanks Bob.

Re: Kick panel speakers on 68

Those kickpanels with the bulges don't look that bad, and might even look factory with the right kind of grill. But I'm leaning toward firing up the sawzall.

Kick panel speakers on 68

My 68 xr7 kick panels have perforated sections that I always presumed were for factory speakers but when I went to install some new speakers tonight I found that there are no openings in the metal behind each grill. What voodoo is this?

First ride of the year

Fourth day straight without having to put the top up. Gotta love global warming.
