  1. It wasn't today but last thing I worked on was replacing the fuel pump. The old one thought it was a water sprinkler. Was the first time I had done this and I had to remove the AC compressor and take off the oil filter to get the old one off.
  2. I've heard and seen great things from Classic Collision and Restoration in Bryan.
  3. Has anyone modified an original AM radio with Bluetooth and digital guts?
  4. Me too, R= metal and L = Fiberglass. the fiberglass one cracked and I sourced a metal one from this forum to replace it next time I paint the car.
  5. x2 on west coast classic cougar. They have a video on this and suggest just breaking it since you are replacing. It is held on with four dabs of silicon
  6. I went with a stock style with mild upgrades and could not be happier. Talk to John at OpenTracker. I did roller spring perches, roller idler arm, lowered upper control arms and put 620# springs in front and mid-eye leafs in rear. It drives better than when it was new. I keep stock appearance, get better performance, and saved a lot of money. I also did a CSRP Disc brake upgrade on my original spindles. https://opentrackerracing.com/ http://www.discbrakeswap.com/
  7. All I know is the seats were not conducive to extra curricular activity.
  8. Fixed my passenger side sport mirror. Watched a video from West Coast Classic Cougar and tightened it up so it stays put when I drive before I put new mirror glass on it. Installed new medallions on the sides. Just ordered an original 69 C9Z AM Philco radio, It did not have knobs but I think I have some. Yelling at 16 year old me for losing that original radio.
  9. Great tip, I think we have a huge box of those clips. I need to replace the front glass and probably should replace rear glass seal.
  10. I recently tore my original headliner. When I touched it the thread was dry rotter and it split at the first seam. Now I have old foam padding falling on me. I probably need to get new sail panels too. I have the Dark Red interior so I need that color. What should I do about the insulation? Is this the time to replace the package tray, seat belts, etc? My windshield also has a lot of pitting. One thing leads to another.
  11. Where would I get a spring? It seems that the right size and set for compression is essential here.
  12. Thanks, That looks like the bar goes through the spring and compresses the spring when pulled. My bar is bare there and has no spring on it. I don't know if I can get a new spring on it if I even had one. It looks like the bar may have been rewelded back on after breaking at some point. May have been when it was stored at my dad's house.
