  1. Yes the rubber should still be good if you store it properly. I did that with my convertible I’m working on. Some of the rubber seals I purchased over 8yrs ago and are all still in perfect condition now that I’m putting them on the car. I stored all mine in nice plastic totes in their original packages in my shed. I haven’t had any that have deteriorated at all. You should be good.
  2. All the holes should be the same size and thread pattern. The only difference is there are a few bolts that are shorter than the rest. I believe there are 4 of those and if I remember correctly those go along the 1/4 panel sides. I would try running a tap through the holes before I drilled them out. There’s probably dirt and rust in the threads not allowing you to get the bolts in.
  3. I bought the Holley sniper setup. Im still waiting on the in tank Holley fuel pump I ordered. Did you install an inertia switch for the fuel pump so it will shut off in the event of an accident? I was also considering adding a hidden fuel pump cut off switch as a theft prevention. I already have one hidden button that kills the feed from the msd box.
  4. I purchased the Holley sniper 550-511 and the in tank pump 12-305 to go with it. Rich did you just use tube compression to barb fittings with efi clamps to reuse the hard fuel line? Like the one in this picture?
  5. How accurate is the factory fuel gauge with the Holley in tank unit?
  6. I was looking at that option for the fuel pump too. The only drawback to me is if it goes out it’s another $400 for a new one vs a cheap inline electric pump. It is a much cleaner look. It also gets rid of the need to drill and put a bulkhead into the tank and the need for a return line.
  7. I’ve been leaning towards Holley since I’ve been able to find more reviews on them and also detailed instillation videos. Thanks for the feedback.
  8. I’m considering putting an efi system on my mustang and want to know which one everyone feels is better. I’m looking at the Holley sniper 500-511k and the Fitech 31003 systems. My engine is a 302 bored 60 over with mild street cam.
  9. Take them off and run a piece of welding wire through them. Then blow out with an air hose.
  10. I built some of of uhmw plastic. I found 2 holes saws that were the correct size and built them. One for the base and one for the side that goes in the track. I drilled part way from both directions the correct depth of the original. Then I counter suck a hole in it to and put a stainless 1/4” bolt in with a lock nut. It looks large in the picture but is the same outer diameter as the factory, just round. It travels good in the track with no issues that I’ve noticed.
  11. Yes the windlace that is on the quarter post is different.
  12. I used tape and masked off around both sides of where the chrome ring was. Then I used some of the testers model car chrome / silver paint and repainted the ring with a small fine tip brush. I actually like the look more than the chrome. I did my radio bezel the exact same.
  13. Midlife does it matter on the alternator light if you switched to a one wire alternator since the harness is no longer connected to it?
  14. I had to replace the turn signal flasher and the emergency flasher to get mine working properly. I believe I also had to reverse polarity on both. Don’t waste your money on the stupid adapter just use a small pick or screwdriver and remove the wires from the plug and swap their locations. I also had a led flasher I purchased that was supposed to be the correct one from CJ’s but didn’t have a ground and it wouldn’t work. I purchased 2 of these from Amazon and they worked great. https://www.amazon.com/CEC-Industries-EF32RL-Flasher/dp/B00JXLH7CG/ref=mp_s_a_1_3?dchild=1&keywords=CEC+Industries+EF32RL+Flasher&qid=1621458181&sr=8-3
  15. Been a while since I posted in progress. I’ve got the interior in minus the door panels and the rear inner quarters. This weekend I installed a full stainless steel exhaust system from block to exhaust tip. I also got the last of the engine bay all wrapped up and kicked the engine over a few time to double check clearance on everything. I’ll should be starting it for the first time next weekend. I still need to steam the seats to get the last few wrinkles out but I think they look good overall.
