    Suspension for the every day driver

    The biggest single improvement I've made to reduce the squirrelling was fitting a rear sway bar. Made a huge difference even after I'd replaces all bushings, springs, ball joints and shocks.
  2. Me too, but sometimes on the longer trips it's nice to have a radio. Also like the hands free. Not sure if I will be able to hear it though. Haven't driven it yet. Just used it in the garage.

    Huge loss for the family

    So sorry to hear that mate. My girl is getting on and I'm dreading this day.
  4. Bought a Retrosound Long Beach while in the US a couple of weeks ago. I've fitted lots of radios over the years and they have all been pretty simple. Not the Mustang. The mounting bracket for the mustang is designed for the different lengths of the from of the original radio and the spindles on the Retrosound are not long enough. I had to weld new brackets to the old one before cutting of the parts that did not work. I know this does not make sense. So hopefully the picture show what I mean. After a lot of fiddling around it's fitted and works great. I can even use the phone hands free.
  5. I ended up fitting them in the side panels. Pretty happy with how they turned out. Thanks for all the suggestions.

    Leak from power steering?

    Looks like the hose is leaking through the crimp. Time for a replacement. I would definitely do something about the hoses hanging does before they get caught on something.

    Printed circuit board

    I replaced mine with an aftermarket one and still had problems. Ended up with a replacement from Midlife. It really is a big improvement and with the length of the harness it's easy to troubleshoot instrument panel issues as you can pull the panel out a considerable way while it is still connected. http://midlife66.com/harnesses/products.html

    I think that ceiling needs some gyprock and some nice downlights to finish it off.
