  1. So happy to see some progress on getting the site online! Thank you so much!
  2. I’m still hoping there’s something we can do to help with this issue. I’m Seems to be happening more and more frequently. This site has such a huge wealth of knowledge. I’d hate to lose it.
  3. Just donated. Hope that helps.
  4. Happened again in December. Is there anything we can do to help?
  5. What’s the monthly cost of the site? What forum software is being used, and what does that cost? I’ve benefited quite a bit from this forum and would like to help keep it going. Can you share some numbers?
  6. It's been a while since I posted an update, and a lot has changed! After sitting about a year and a half on the waitlist, my body shop is ready to start on the car. I stripped the car of every last panel and bolt, in preparation for sending it off to Xpress Metal Cleaning in Phoenix, AZ. There I had it acid dipped to remove everything but the steal. Next week it gets picked up and delivered to the body shop to start the real work! The car did look pretty good before the dip, and people would ask me, "Why are you doing this, the car looks great as it is!" Well, one look at the quarter panels after the acid dip is all I needed to know that I did the right thing! Once we have it back and can look at it in person, we'll determine of the quarters will need to be reskinned. Right now I'm thinking yes. Teardown begins! Loaded up for transport: Squeaky clean after the dip:
  7. Looking for pics and your experiences with different grill covers (aftermarket plates that cover from the back of the grill to the radiator support). I’ve seen products on CJ Pony, Jegs, and Vivid Racing, but they just show poor photos of the product and not installed examples. I’ll be looking to paint mine the body color. Thanks in advance!
  8. Thanks for the offer, but I already picked one up from West Coast Classic Cougar.
  9. There’s an easier way to remove the tar-based sound deadener. Check this out: Regardless, I’m planning on going with Lizard Skin when I get the metalwork and paint done.
  10. Thank you both! This information has been very helpful. Once I get this all figured out, I plan on documenting the whole conversion process for others in the future!
  11. As part of my Tremec TKX swap, I've decided to go down the route of converting from power brakes to manual brakes, but I need some assistance from any of you that have already performed this swap. After talking with a person at Wilwood, I'll be swapping the existing MC with a Wilwood model that has a 15/16 bore, but I was also advised to make sure that the brake pedal I use has a ratio of 6.25 to 1. I've looked at several aftermarket sites for a replacement brake pedal, but none of them post the pedal ratios. For any of you that have done this swap, do you have a part number for the brake pedal I need, and is the pedal the only other thing I need to change with this brake swap? I've tried to comb through the archives here, but wasn't able to find anything concrete. Thanks in advance!
  12. Okay, so I need some advice and opinions on this. My car will be getting a complete strip down and paint within a few months and I’m looking for options on if is should paint the engine bay the classic black or have it match the exterior color, which will remain red. I know this is a bit of a personal preference question, but hoping to get some pros/cons of each option, and some picks of folks that have gone the body color route. Thanks in advance!
  13. I installed the 9 inch last week. Pretty much everything is new except for the leaf springs, which i cleaned up and painted to match the rest. Just need to finish running the brake and e-brake lines and fill it up with fluid. Then on to the TKX swap!
