Do you have a photo in your files of this for reference? Thanks Joe Joe I dont have a pic of the mounts, that I ...

Re: Removing rear wheels on 63’

Yea you can jack up that far forward, motor is plenty of counter balance, or even without a motor . After I installed my monoleafs which were a lot stiffer I still couldn't get these wide tires on with suspension dropped so I made up a deal with what I could find on hand ,all-thread, channel metal s...

Re: Lou's 65 Comet Build

Yea once you think of heat shrink as a universal covering it opens up many uses. Started with the lanyards, but have found a few other uses for it on my build! Lou I'm surprised you didn't cover the whole lanyard,,,or at least up past the part that looks to be rubbing on the hood trim. :? btw, did ...

Re: Seat Track Nightmare

Here are some pics of the seat out of my car with wire that is run thru 2 or 3 rings on the frame. if you zoom in on second pic you can see that it would be above the hog rings that are holding the cover on which helps it get over the hump https://i.postimg.cc/DZQ9BKP9/SDC11133.jpg https://i.postimg...

It should be ran through a hog ring at front of seat in the center of the seat. This takes up the slack while keeping it from dragging on the drive shaft tunnel. I ...
