Thanks for the link! Those look decent. But wasn't expecting to pay $200, ouch. I'll see what Don comes up with :mrgreen:

Re: GT-E Introductory Show Car 500033

Wow, awesome! Engine porn...

So being an early show car, was this the first production GT-E? Used in the brochures perhaps? The possibilities are interesting... what's the history of it, or did I miss the full story somewhere?

Re: 68 R Code

Awesome! That had to feel good. The question is, did you step on it? :P

Re: Inner rear fender splash guards rubber tracing needed

Here's a couple pics of Don's '67 GT we have in the shop currently. It's never been apart. Strange to see that the LH side came with the proper Cougar rubber, and the RH side got a Mustang piece. You can tell by the bulge in the rubber (circled) where the Mustang fender has a raised contour, and the...

Re: The Snowball Saga - '68 Standard Revitalization Project

Great progress. Interior looks great! Will you be driving it this summer? Thanks! I think this time around I can actually say with some confidence that yes, I should be able to drive it this summer! :D I'm very much looking forward to that, but also a little nervous. After all this work, it's going...

Re: XR7 REPRODUCTION VS RESTORED STEERING WHEEL REVIEWS

That's a good question. There's about a $100 price difference between restored and repro (restored being pricier). I recently took the pictures for that repro listing and held it in my hands and it looks very nice. It's actually done by the same guy who restores original wheels. He takes a standard ...

Re: Best Eliminator Color?

Just saw this... it's a tough question! But I voted for Comp. Orange. It's just a bright slap-you-in-the-face color that goes so well with the bold black striping. I really like the Comp. Green and Blue too though, and yellow looks great on a '69. I wouldn't refuse any [standard] color Eliminator, r...

Re: The Snowball Saga - '68 Standard Revitalization Project

Thanks guys! I think if there's one thing to be gleaned from this thread, it's just how much time and work goes into a project like this. So many little details and challenges to get through. Every little piece that goes on needs some kind of attention or special treatment. The only way to get throu...

Re: Windshield molding and other molding removal

If you aren't taking the glass out, don't bother replacing the clips. The originals are reputed to be a little better than the repops. As long as they are all in place and not broken, don't worry about it.

Re: The Snowball Saga - '68 Standard Revitalization Project

Now for a couple details and links. Here's the new mirror nut and knob installed. Don't forget the special tool . Also went for the longer-than-original window crank handles because they make it easier to roll the windows up and down. Don't forget decals and screws and the nylon washers that go behi...
