Shoutout to Phillip (propayne) for his work on these, scanning his original copy and meticulously recreating the text elements. It looks awesome.

Re: 1968 XR7G 36x48" Mercury Dealer Showroom poster reprints for sale

Just saw a proof in person today and it looks amazing. The full size version is on a nice thick heavy paper, and the text and images look beautiful. We are only doing a limited run of the full size for now to see how they do - 25 "concours" versions with the misspelled "Couger" and 25 corrected vers...

Re: Steering gear box adjustment

I hear that a polyurethane rag joint can make a significant difference. WCCC carries one for a tilt column but somehow not a fixed column (yet). Maybe that will change in the near future...

Re: No gas cap

Weird, I didn't even know that was a thing. My newest vehicle is a 1992, so I'm just excited to have power windows at this point. So many of the gadgets and features on new vehicles make me say "why?". Like motorized doors and liftgates. Is it really that hard to close a door with your hand? Remote ...

Re: 1968 Cougar Heater Core Replacement With AC

Does anyone know how to text the evaporator, and vacuum valves Evaporator - you can put it in a bucket of water, blow compressed air into it and see if you see any bubbles come out. Might want to plug one of the tubes and get a good seal around your air nozzle to do a true test. I don't know how mu...

Re: Steering gear box adjustment

As shown in the video, take a look at all your other steering components too. Any slop in the idler arm, for example, can add up to a lot of slop in the steering wheel.

Re: Cover or garage

I would put it inside and avoid getting moisture anywhere in the shell... a cover is not going to completely protect it from that.

BUT - If you haven't started any metal stripping or rust repair, then I guess it wouldn't be the end of the world at this stage.

Re: Vendors section

Well, as someone who is both a member of this site / community AND employed by one of the main vendors (WCCC) in a marketing role, I have some thoughts! I agree with Bill that we should not have any sort of banner ads or anything like that. The format should stay the same, but give real human beings...

Re: 1968 Cougar Heater Core Replacement With AC

If I remember right, the blower housing is held to the car with one stud through the firewall, and one bolt through an L-bracket to the under-dash / cowl. If you get it loose, you should be able to shift the blower housing over to the driver's side enough to get the heater box out. You may also want...
