Re: 68 standard, restromod driver?

I feel your pain on the windows, that whole setup is ridiculous. Hard to get everything 100% right. I cleaned and greased the crap out of my tracks, installed new regulators and rollers here and there, spent a lot of time adjusting, and they are still kinda difficult to roll up, and don't seem to w...

Re: 68 standard, restromod driver?

So door glass.....that was fun :wtf: I had to swap the top stainless trim from another window since mine was pretty scratched up along with being loose and falling off. That was was easier then expected surprisingly. What was more fun is finding all the hardware, stops and slides that go with the gl...

Re: Things folks say about my Cougar!!!!!!!!!!

I got mustang comments alot on mine. I was hoping it was simply because those people had seen it in a bare bones stage just after paint and it does have similar lines as a mustang.

Re: Smoke from dash

That can be scary for sure. Glad you found the damaged, rear it apart and figure out what circuit is at fault, it could be as simple as two wires rubbing together at a tight place or more involved like an overloaded circuit.

I wouldn’t have thought about heating these while stretching. Mine surprisingly where not that bad, I was able to find the original screw holes even.

Heat is the ticket on these. I did mine on the bench but overall same concept. Heat and bend a little, repeat until straight

Re: Harbor Freight - floor jack and stands

For occasional garage use they are just fine. I typically hate buying anything from harbor freight but they do have a place on some things. I wish I could go out and buy a US made floor jack and jack stands but I bet your close to $1k for a 3 ton floor jack and 4 2 ton stands.

Re: Retro radios....?

I have a RetroSound in my 68 and I hate it. It gets horrible reception, is very static-y even playing from a memory card, and have very little volume. I've talked to RetroSound, they said to isolate the wiring and it'll be fine. So now I'm hooked up directly to the battery, and have dedicated speak...

Re: 1968 Car and Driver Readers Choice Poll - Cougar voted "Best Sporty Car" - Decal

Cool! Nice little part of the history! I would not want to put that on my car but I can sure find a place on in my garage cabinet full of stickers for it!

Re: Junk yards / salvage yards

If your ordering and shipping anyway try wccc like was mentioned above. I have got a few used yard items from them and they where very nice. Call them with your needs and they can make the best attempt to accommodate. With most classics your going to have to find a yard that specializes in them typi...
