Re: 1964 Comet Caliente 404 Radio Bezel

Pretty sure the bezels are all chrome rib and the woodgrain is just a glue on. Maybe someone else could confirm? Fred All ‘64 radio bezels for an AM radio are the same, the 202/404 used the chrome ribs, on a Calienti they covered the ribs with a woodgrain adhesive panel, on a Cyclone they covered i...

Re: Need some ideas on connecting parking brake with Explorer 8.8

You can find a clip adapter on a lot of Jeep sites that adapt lever to the cable seems like I made one from one “HELP” universal kit, once you get that your car cables should connect I am not a fan of the Explorer Ebrake system.

Re: New here! 65 comet!

Yeah the coolant looks gross and rusty. Here’s the thing, I don’t think it has a heater? From what I can tell the hoses come out the firewall and go to nothing. Just hang there. On one hand I live in Florida and I don’t think I’ll need heat but on the other hand I live in Florida and might need to ...

Re: Update on me.

When I started this forum in 2003 I never thought it would lead to so many guys I consider freinds now, thought we would just casually talk about Comets and help each other with locating rare parts, not that we would be friends. I cant tell you how much the cards and well wishes have meant to me dur...
