Re: 1963 Comet Custom Build Thread

Looks good, is the defrost vent/speaker grille going to be solid white? No I took it down to bare metal and then clear coated the bare metal. I was going for just a clean metal look for that speaker grill. are you going to have the flames out on the cowl,,,as if coming out of the back of the hood t...

Re: 1962 Comet on BAT

I bet the dash sounds a lot better than it looks. what color is the dash butterscotch? :x But I dont think I've never seen the way the rearend is mounted before, the link mounts welded to the housing would have to go if I had it. maybe panhard bars. not sure what the black thing is mounted to the r...

I had a partscar that someone had put what looked like mustang p...

Re: Dash Speaker Holder

1964 Comet AM radios are unique. Dont feel lonely, 65's are a one year/one model only radio too. one other thought came to mind that I forgot to mention. when I stripped my car down I remember it have some other pieces of insulation on the bottom of the dash. I cant remember what held it up. it tor...

My 65 speaker is still in the dash. I am getting ready to remove everything from under the dash . Do you need the speaker or brackets or AM radio.
Take pics of under there to show us if you dont mind.especially any rubber bummers. I remember some on the feet of the cover but may be more?

Re: Dash Speaker Holder

what you see is a home made adapter to use mustang ducts. they are cheaper but shaped a tad different. Pic was probably taken during the making of those adapters,I'm guessing because the other side is empty . someone wanted a pic of where the radio brace mounted, I had it opened up so I didnt mind. ...

Re: 347 Keeps Dying Randomly

if you could narrow it down to fuel or fire would be good. . might check fire next time it stops . If all mentioned above doesn't help ,,,,if it still has the original tank that would be my number one suspect. I dont really like running them full time but the el cheapo clear plastic filters are good...

Re: Dash Speaker Holder

I dont remember any other piece than just the speaker that came out of my 65 ,my dash looks the same. I used a speaker from a 96 ford taurus, had to drill the 2 holes in the ends of the speaker to match the holes that you have labeled football screw holes. here's one from melvins that should fit; ht...

Re: 1965 Comet Caliente (little red)

I think most state laws the turn signals need to be amber not white or clear. so if you run clear lenses you probably need the amber bulbs. But you might want to check your state laws beforehand.

Re: 65 Comet parts needed East TN -

Dan keep in mind caliente wheel well trim is a tad shorter than cyclones because of the different lower rocker trim. I thought I saw a few tailights on a table in your pics?
