  1. Thanks Roger, id checked them, but prices are already on Lokar level :( but at least nice details inspiration
  2. Just finished my light panel for rear fog, reverse and license plate light. Will be mounted in rear bumper notch and is all LED. After I saw YT video from AtotopiaLA with Mercury Comet crashing because of brake failure, I decided to converse emergency brake to floor mounted that I'm more used to. Nice Lokar kit is way to expensive, so I'm going cheaper way:
  3. Hi, its cheap module from china - aliexpress / ebay: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1005001959116063.html?spm=a2g0o.productlist.0.0.de4a6c95A4Bao3&algo_pvid=708336d1-c8a7-4a66-94c2-843a22a47662&algo_exp_id=708336d1-c8a7-4a66-94c2-843a22a47662-23&pdp_ext_f={"sku_id"%3A"12000018229388578"}&pdp_npi=2%40dis!EUR!1.07!0.52!!!!!%402101fd4b16643416386241279eb17b!12000018229388578!sea&curPageLogUid=0oWMrz2ziqul I tested it for a while and it did survive, but how long will it in light is still a question :)
  4. Thanks Victor, sooo, my tranny is ready to install. I got lucky a found one „new“ upper strut for 70 and up FMX on ebay. The lower one was easy, so I made that one by myself. Adjusted according manual specs now waiting for installation.
  5. Thanks Bob, thats nice saying :)
  6. Short update... So, thanks Bob, Kens videos are great, and to work on transmission with them really fun! My front band had to be replaced / relined so I decided to buy a flexible band. Unfortunately, use of this type of band requires other strut (as for 1972-73 fmx), so I’m still not able to assembly the trany – waiting parts to come. Maybe it might help someone, so I’m posting a picture how I solved installation of direct drum piston. I used thin plastic flowerpot (cut flash at bottom ad left some rest above for pulling it out) to press the seal ring, inserted inside the drum and by constantly pressing on piston I slowly removed the pot strip. Till struts arrive I started to rebuild side louvres an rewire the car.
  7. no Bob, i have to download it and watch. Thanks!
  8. It was raining this weekend, so I started something new – rebuild of my FMX. I ordered master rebuild kit C9ZZ-7005-MK, output shaft bushing, output and pump seal. After disassembly I inspected bearings, seals and bands. Can someone confirm my finding and answer some questions, please? - front band should be replaced - Bearing on direct drum ich chipped - should be replaced - is the lip on Planet bushing normal or its wear? - is it normal that replacement flat seal for forward clutch piston is about 1/3 thinner than original? - Is he wear on inside bushings (last two pics) OK? Thanks for any answer / opinion, I’m trying to find some info on web, but except rebuild kits are even other bushing and parts hard to find
  9. Broken heating housing repaired, and restored with new seals, finally all upholstery done and tadaaaaa. after 5 years back on own wheels!
  10. Meanwhile in my garage :) After disassembly of my differential I found heavy wear on yoke seal surface. Unfortunately it was deep and after machining the original seal had only light pressure, so I hat to get some custom seal. Backlash of differential and tooth position adjusted. Finally brake parts came (except rear brake cables), and I could put everything together.
  11. After a while some parts arrived to my eshop, so I was able to start put the car together. I bought Scott Drake lowering kit for rear end, installed tank and sending unit and modified tail lights with LED modules.
  12. Thanks aslanefe ! Yes, I was wondering what are this brackets for. What kind of clip are they attached with?
  13. Man, thanks a lot, that helped me a lot. I will put there same foam I used under door jamb stainless trim. It's harder than I thought its gonna be to put the car together, even with assembly manuals :) On top of all, the quality of some aftermarket parts is so poor that I'm struggling with primitive things - now its the hood. The seal between hood and cowl is so hard that is unusable.
  14. Perfect, thanks aslannefe!
  15. First back seat side panel restored, under old upholstery I found some surface rust , but after some rust neutralizer, coat of epoxy and fresh vinyl its like new. I found 3 mounting spots for screws, but can't figure out purpose of the one on panel - red arrow, because place where is this one aligned to - has no hole at all. Im I missing some mounting clip, oi its hole for rubber insert? Did someone recently instal this panels on coupe (has someone pics)? My assembly manual has poor details on this part of vehicle so I'm just guessing how should it be ... Thanks
