  1. It's a never-ending battle, the bots come back every day, sometimes more that once. We need the forum software upgrade - that should kill the bots and allow the site to be secure again which should fix the "unsafe" warnings and let the "like" feature work again.
  2. Thanks, Ben that sounds like a good plan. Hope everything goes smoothly.
  3. Ok, I misunderstood. I will look at my factory original bow tomorrow. I would assume the strip was glued into the bow but I'm probably wrong.
  4. I still use the OEM which is soft and accepts staples readily. I would expect the replacement to be soft and accept staples like the original, certainly not metal. The front strip was toast on my car and I used a length of plastic body side molding that they sell at any auto parts store and it works well. I see West Coast Cougars sells something similar for the back, you may want to look into a section that? I would assume it's a good size to fit in the rear bow and it's cheap. https://secure.cougarpartscatalog.com/store/p/13541-Convertible-Rear-Bow-Tack-Strip-BY-THE-FOOT-Repro-1969-1973-Mercury-Cougar-1967-1973-Ford-Mustang.html?srsltid=AfmBOorJr3zqFjs0TQOo6nIBbKcf1dUDXWACH_508LDzTinWagj1aGk1SYU
  5. Google tells me Northwest Mustang is now called Classic LEDs (classicleds.com). I'd probably try to contact them to see if they can replace the flasher. That might also explain your tail light issues.
  6. It might be possible but only @bswor has the super-powers needed to do it.
  7. Welcome back!. Been lusting after one of those lifts myself.:)
  8. Did we forget to lock the back door again?
  9. Welcome to the site! The deluxe, woodgrain dash would have come with the round rally clock. The standard, black dash would have come with the rectangular clock. Both styles could also be ordered with no clock at all. I'm not familiar with any type of square clock in a '69, GT or otherwise.
  10. I just replaced mine this last summer. I tried the sheet metal shim on the OEM and it worked but ended up replacing it with a new one just to be safe. If the new one lasts 50 years like the old one it will be someone else's problem :) My problem was the spring had fatigued to the point I had to stand on the brake pedal to get the lights to come on. The new one lights them with a very light touch. As mentioned above, there is a different switch for power brakes and non-power brakes, so make sure you get the correct one.
  11. Confirm the choke is opening? Any evidence of running rich or lean? I agree about bypassing the resistor wire.
  12. It is according to the label on the one I bought years ago.
  13. It's been a while since I did mine and I remember it is a bit of a Rube Goldberg setup but I'm pretty sure I managed it the way it's shown on the averagejoerestoration.com page. (Sorry, site won't allow me to post the link)
