Re: 68 R Code

Edited comments - You are right, I liked the look of it compared to original. We will see how it holds up over time. Looking goooooood! I'm surprised you used the SEM "color coat" paint on the taillight bezels, isn't that more intended for vinyl and such? Gotcha! Hopefully it'll work fine. I used t...

Re: 1968 XR7 project in Poland

Nice work! It's always interesting to see people in other countries restoring these cars. I'm sure there are some unique challenges that you have to face over there. Looks like you have a nice shop space to work on it though.

Re: I can finally see! Check out theses BRIGHT new headlights!!!

I bought some LED lights from Octane lighting and have yet to install them on mine since it's undergoing lots of metal surgery. Excited to see if they pan out otherwise glad to see there's a good option out there. The idea of LED intrigues me, mostly because of the much lower current draw, as well ...

Re: 1968 Cougar Heater Core Replacement With AC

I have that diffuser, and I got the two push pins out of the front facing the shifter. But its still attached on the left side and I can't feel or find that attachment point. You also mentioned about removing the blower box bolts so it can move to the left a couple inches to make room for getting t...

Re: Sprucing up a '68 Cougar

Very cool, I like what you're doing with that EFI setup. It's great that those tanks are available. The filter / regulator is interesting, I didn't know that was a thing. I always assumed you needed a return from the throttle body. Nice!

Re: The Snowball Saga - '68 Standard Revitalization Project

Time to bring things up to speed! My goal is to get it done, or at least done enough to drive, by the end of the year. It's getting harder to work on it this time of year, when it gets dark at about 4:30 and it's getting too cold to paint things. The cold also makes rubber and vinyl items harder to ...

Re: The Snowball Saga - '68 Standard Revitalization Project

Ah, I see what you mean now! Good catch, I'll have to add that to my list of little details to address at some point.
