    Galveston, Tx Sunrise

    Saturday morning came early last weekend. Got the old girl down the beach for a decent sunrise. A few pics for anyone interested. The big old hotel in a couple of the pics is Hotel Galvez' on the seawall. Beach pictures taken down on East Beach. They put too many poles up down there, making donuts a bit dangerous - but you know a few got made. Was a nice quiet morning out with the mistress... Jay

    She is now on the rollover jig and strateed stripping the factory underseal off. I’m quite surprised how solid it is, she’s had 2 No. rear 1/4 with outer wheel well and LHS torque box at some point, quite good work carried out. more pics to follow chris

    Location for visor mounts?

    I use a needle to find the holes, that way the tiny hole won't show up on the headliner if you mis the hole locations.

    OK, I am going to go throw a weird one at you. Maybe your problem is related to mine, but probably not. your problem is more likely a connection problem. However, I had a similar radio cutting out problem with my retrosound, except mine would cut out when I revved the engine from low speed to high, but it only seemed to happen when the car was fresh out of the garage. Also, if the car was brought back to dead idle, radio would play again -even fresh out of the garage. weird thing was, drive it a few miles, and this cut-out would go away. So, after me living with this for a long while, and pondering it, but not coming up with anything, a friend rides with me and sees this weird behavior and has a genius insight - he says "do you have an original voltage regulator?" yes. "well then, I think maybe your radio is seeing unacceptable voltages when the alternator is kicked in at higher RPMS. The alternator kicks in much more often immediately after the car has started after it's been sitting in garage. After you drive the car a bit, the battery gets charged up - so alternator not kicking in - and symptom stops. Maybe you should try a new solid-state VR." Freaking genius insight. Sure enough, a new solid state VR solved my radio cutting out problem completely. Now, in your case, the radio cuts out at low speed - when another electrical system is engaged. So perhaps the current draw of the blinker system causes the voltage the radio is getting to somehow change to a temporarily unacceptable amount. Car equilibrates voltages are a few moments and radio comes back on. At high RPMs voltage is sufficiently regulated to not cause a problem in the circuit. Do you have an old-style VR with resistors on the back? is a good question to ask if you can't trace it to bad ground or bad connection. Above image is what the back of my old VR looked like (I believe it is original with the car). The new Solid State versions don't look like this. Most likely, this is not your problem, but at least I stuck to the "radio cuts out" theme. Hope this wasn't too much of a thread high-jack! Jay

    Black stripes do matter LOL. I've used Graphic Express on most of our stripes.

    Headlight bucket fitment

    I had tried the washer already. I looked at my other fender and I saw where it didn’t have any gap between the inner bucket and the fender at the bottom. The fender that didn’t fit has an 1/8” gap. I drilled out the spot welds and moved it to match the other one and now it lines up perfect. Thanks for all the suggestions.

    Well...the noise has gone away for the most part. Guess it needed to break in a bit. So happy :)

    Bob, I used the measurements I found off this site, made a few pencil marks, and ran a string line. I then came back with painters tape to match the string line. The lip of the tape is just enough to catch the stripe once backing is removed. It only takes just a little soap in the bottle to make the stripes workable.

    Thanks for the warm welcome guys, yes it’s hard to believe we do get sun in the U.K. on occasions.! i live as far as south as you can get in U.K. literally as close to `France as you can get across the English channel, and we do get more sun here then rest of The U.K., which is saying a lot, lol.

    It could also be a bulb issue? Try to replace one bulb at time see if you can isolate the problem. Sometime the contact in the socket oxidized and cause mild shortage, clean contact area with dielectric grease. Last solution, get a voltage reading on the bulb, and radio terminal

    OK...turn signal and radio are on the same fuse circuit, as is the backup lamps. Probably what's happening is a loss of voltage across those fuse clips, Look at the top left-most fuse. On the other hand, your car could be haunted by the ghost of Lee Iacocca. I'd say three Hail Mr. Fords and spray any anti-Chebby disinfectant you can find.

    Yes it does. It points to the headlight to fusebox area as the problem.

    Tinman, didn't know this was you. I followed you home a few months ago, I was checking out the rear flip windows on your original for fitment in comparison with mine. Small world.

    If I you, I'd stick with the K power box which gets minimal wear. Most F manual boxes are plumb worn out. What's your budget? I've got a tight 16:1 K box that I'd rather not just give away. I've also got a Flaming River 16:1 box with less than 7k miles that I'll sell for $200 + $20 shipping.

    Long Headers for 69 with 351W

    Scoop is original nonfunctional with turn signal indicators, I posted for Jerry above he wanted to know what the doug's D669y's sounded like. In his case tho with a stroker and if he adds an H or X pipe the note will probably be a little different.

    Looks like everyone is giving our customer a run around on the tranny. He decided to just buy another new one so we can finish the car. I'm sure he will be talking to American Power Train later.
