  1. Congrats. Just so you know, the reason that one was pricy is it comes with the illuminated switch option. This only came with the visibility group option package and not all (or even most) Mustangs got it. It should plug in to your existing harness and your switch will light up with the parking lights. Keep us posted on the build! Oh, BTW, I like the Boss 351 poster on the garage wall :)
  2. Nah, the boonies have Greyhound stations :)
  3. Thanks, Bob. That pic almost makes my hack paint job look nice :)
  4. No problem. Good luck, a little buffing and those should work. Report back on the fit if you can.
  5. Well, I looked through my big box o' paper tonight and couldn't find a receipt for them. More than likely I picked them up at a swap meet a long, long time ago It looks like Scott Drake is the only supplier these days and like you said, they get mixed reviews (I looked). I don't think mine were Scott Drake but I really can't remember and I guess it doesn't matter anyway. Sorry I can't be more help. I guess you could re-chrome some OEM, or go stick-on, or take a chance on a $16 set that might be crooked.
  6. It's been several years, I will look tonight to see if I have any record of when and where I bought them. Pretty sure they are.
  7. My original set was relatively nice but they needed new chrome. After looking into the cost, I went with a repro set with pins (not the stick-on kind) and was pleasantly surprised. All the pins but one lined up well with the holes in the deck lid. I worked the one that didn't fit with a file and it worked out well. Something you may want to look into, as a really nice set of originals may be hard to find. Not the best photo but here they are...
  8. Yes I always liked that picture of Farah and her Charlie's Angels Cobra.
  9. In real life, Jeannie (Barbara Eden) drove a '69 Mach I 428.
  10. In her TV show, yes. She also drove a '72 later on...
  11. Appreciate the tip on the Rust-Oleum. Gonna pick some up.
  12. That doesn't look right, I'd have the shop make it right. The factory top had a smaller bead that was finished on the ends by folding back underneath and securing. Not saying a different style won't work but it needs to be finished right. The photos of my top below were taken with the trim and windshield removed but it gives you the idea.
  13. Nice work, Tom. That's a common problem, often difficult to diagnose. You're right, it's not a great design.
  14. Powder coating sounds like a great idea. My visor brackets are a little beat up and pitted as well - years of near-misses when engaging the clamp left a mark or two :)
  15. Cleaned up the molding and painted it silver. Buffed and polished the visor brackets as best I could.
