Re: Dash pad replacement issue

I think you should at least start the fasteners for the dash pad, and make sure the front part (towards the windshield) is pushed down all the way. Use an awl or similar to locate the screw holes. You might also have to push down on the metal trim strips a bit to get the screws to start. If you're r...

Re: WCCC Photo Contest 2018

Andrew, Thanks for the Honorable Mention. I'm sure it was hard choosing from all the entries that you had posted earlier. For sure Tom! I enjoyed your pics with the battleship in the background, and your car is very unique and cool - special order paint and Houndstooth interior! Don't see that ever...

I have a Feb 1968 built San Jose XR7, and it has the stainless strips. When we put the new vinyl top on I didn't not re-install them, as I think they look out of place on the car.
Send 'em to me if you don't want them :mrgreen:

Re: The Snowball Saga - '68 Standard Revitalization Project

Thanks guys! So, I skipped over some stuff. I was scrolling back on my phone photos and realized I never posted this stuff. So let me go back in time for a sec. Front bumper installation! Kinda awkward and it helps to have a second person. In the end, I left the brackets slightly loose on the bumper...

Re: 1968 J code body / no vinyl top / SOLID Western Roller Shell / Project

Woe! Looks like the car Andrew wishes his was when he started. I hope somebody picks it up. But then it wouldn't have sentimental value and family history :lol: Which is maybe a good thing, one could do almost anything with a solid shell like this. Pick your color, interior, and drivetrain, build i...

Re: Turn signal lever

There is also a difference in how they made the flat spot for loosening / tightening it. The original is squished like it went through a roller, while the repro is more like a machined cut. Also, the end knob on the repro is screwed on, while the knob on the original is pressed on. Wow, somebody's ...

Re: The Snowball Saga - '68 Standard Revitalization Project

So did you ever imagine a few years ago when you started that you’d be where you are today? I dunno, if you would have told me back in 2011 that it would take this long, and cost this much, and prevent me from having a social life, I might not have gone for it :lol: But then if you showed me these ...

Re: Turn signal lever

I'd just get a new one, they're cheap and look nice. https://secure.cougarpartscatalog.com/19tusililewa.html But they’re not correct. :poke: Yeah yeah, but the difference is verrrrry minor, most people would never notice. https://storeimages-westcoastclassic.netdna-ssl.com/dc/1001947/1001947_(10)-1...
