  1. So of course I made the mistake of continuing to read, and came across a bunch of threads about electric power steering. Most seem to be using the units from prius or Saturn Vue. Can anyone comment on how much of an issue space is with a clutch pedal? Also, anyone try using Subaru BRZ/scion frs / Toyota gt86 epas units? They're newer, cheap on ebay, and brunosteering makes a gps speed controller doodad for it, so it varies the amount of ps boost based on your speed.
  2. Thanks. Some of the info on the interwebs seems to indicate constant leaking and other issues with the factory units...so I didn't want to throw big money to replace or rebuild the factory stuff, just to have to deal with ongoing issues.
  3. So... Purchased a 6cyl auto 70 vert over a year ago. Guy I purchased it from is a mechanic, and was supposed to do a swap with a 351w and a t5. It's now with a second shop, after the first guy essentially gave up. Most of its needs are getting sorted, but I need advice regarding steering. It was originally power steering. I was told the steering needed rebuilt. So with a 351w (really a 393w), a t5, headers of some sort, and plans on adding aftermarket a/c... Should I try and get the original ps rebuilt, get a new original ps from chockostang, get a borgeson ps kit put in, or get a steeroids rack and pinion ps unit? Seems like each of these has some major drawback.
  4. Not looking to put in the miata seats (mostly because I already have the new upholstery for the original mustang seats). I'm wondering whether the original mustang seats can hold speakers in the headrests, just like the miata seats can.
  5. Got an 8 track. Got an audacy forza amp/dsp on the way. Still working on speaker locations. The fiero and miata had speakers that went in the headrest. Any idea if this would work with the stock seats (rather than swapping in miata or fiero seats? Mine are going to be re-covered, so that would be the time to do it. Here's a link to what I'm talking about (miata version). https://www.3maudio.com/RetrofitKit.html
  6. Hopefully the members you sold them to will post some pics. Thanks.
  7. Any updates on this? Photos on a finished car?
  8. Sucks that it hits the am/fm buttons. I'm starting to lean towards this: https://www.ebay.com/itm/203473603999?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0&ssspo=OrwPIENwQFO&sssrc=2349624&ssuid=F0dqPHfESqO&var=&widget_ver=artemis&media=COPY It's about 3x what I want to spend, but it has dsp to fix the crappy sound quality, it's 8 channels, which would allow two dash, two door, two rear quarter trim, and bridge the last two for a sub.
  9. Got this on eBay, hopefully it works out. Working through figuring out the audio setup. I'm assuming it just had outputs for left and right, one pair. I'd ideally like more than that. In a perfect world, I would have dash speakers, door speakers, and rear quarter trim speakers. I also need Bluetooth handsfree. Options for that include fm Bluetooth transmitter, fm antenna plug Bluetooth, or maybe gutting a Bluetooth portable speaker and getting creative; Memphis audio headless receiver, with the 8 track wired to the aux port... But I don't know if you have something plugged in the aux, whether it "overrides" the Bluetooth input... And to get the correct number of speakers with Memphis, I'd need multiple speakers from each channel, which decreases power, unless they're 2ohm... Unless I wire the 8 track to a hertz dsp 8 channel sound processor or their 8 channel amp with dsp... But that's getting crazy expensive.
  10. Thanks. Very helpful photos
  11. Thanks. That's a helpful photo...which brings up another question: looks like there's room above the radio, below the air vents, to put a small tach...Is there a reason I've never seen that done?
  12. I sent a message saying "Do you have the measurements of the radio?" He responded "no" Guess I should have asked more directly.
  13. Thanks. Also found this one: http://www.katestrackshack.com/car_players_InDash.html Basically new in box. I emailed them, and it's 2" tall by 7" wide and 7" deep. That 1973 ford one looks pretty tall, no?
  14. Anyone know if this will fit the radio opening in a '70? https://www.ebay.com/itm/125414049965?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0&ssspo=cy3pyxxysme&sssrc=2349624&ssuid=F0dqPHfESqO&var=&widget_ver=artemis&media=COPY
  15. I bought plans for this: https://customdiykit.com/1969-70-mustang-center-console-build-kit-diy-build-your-own-custom-console.php If my car ever gets back from the mechanic, I plan on building it, and will post photos.
