Re: 1962 S22 engine hood

I used a dented - crusty donated hood ('kudos to Pixel') for the 61's junkyard rescue. https://i.postimg.cc/VdrLQhbg/COMET-SS-01800-Copy.jpg . https://i.postimg.cc/Mn5Ls6KF/COMET-SS-08300-Copy.jpg . https://i.postimg.cc/T5n7n...

Re: Rustoleum Turbo Paint

Quality Single Stage paint can provide the lacquer like luster and overall smooth color often missing even on expensive BC/CC paint. The important post-paint care needed prevents it's wider use by novices and in repair shops. 'the 61 has PPG DP primer and PPG DBC Single Stage 'Wimbledon / Corinthian...

Re: Rustoleum Turbo Paint

Re: Another rear end question

The Ranger 8.8 swap has been done and will be good for your project posts' to see it done. BUT , hope you also are considering a Ford 8" rear. Compatible Ford 9" rear is rare and /or expensive but an 8" will take care of most performance needs out to @ 400 HP. The advantage is there are still quite ...

Re: Lavron's '64 Build Thread

am thinking about a roll cage, mostly to attach seatbelts to. So if anyone knows of a sedan cage cheap premade, sounds like you're thinking about a lot of Comet related things ... As far as a cage, I used a similar Kit approach , Kit has plates to weld to floors for unibody and handy to drill for s...

Re: 61 comet...new front shocks install......

... relax, sounds like you have everything in order. Off kilter shock - installing shock pulled straight is typical and spring lower termination is fine on outer side - believe also typical. Did you replace front coil springs and/or rubber cushion at top of shock tower?. ( 60/ '61's also have unique...

Re: 4Lug Front Disc Brakes

I have a Scarebird 4 lug conversion on a '61 and well worth the upgrade. Uses readily available components on their adaptor plate on the spindle. To fit in Rotor, OEM hubs need to be cut down slightly or buy the Scarebird Hubs ready to go. Chevy Cavalier calipers, Nissan rotors and Caddy hoses. Disc...

Re: 62 comet throttle linkage

Since you have a 3OTT, the linkage doesn't need the slushomatics' kickdown lever and is simpler. If the firewall mounted bellcrank from the pedal thru firewall is intact, a replacement arm should be able to be sourced or fabricated. If it's missing the bellcrank and rods, a conversion to cable from ...
