Re: LED Tail Light Issues

Ready to road test the Comet I guess :roll: She is loaded up on the trailer for the trip to town tomorrow. https://cometcentral.com/photos/images/2020/09/03/7f3d85064ad3e49fa4ed7318d9508c2b.jpg Having it tied down and up on the trailer you can see the ground clearance slammed, or the lack thereof, I...

Re: Lavron's '64 Build Thread

Re: LED Tail Light Issues

Update on my LED taillights, put all Sylvania bulbs in and they work correctly. https://youtu.be/Hd_aQg3ezJ4 Sequencer still does not work but I will mess with that later. There must have been something going on internally in those cheapy bulbs because the third brake light is not messed up now eith...

Re: LED Tail Light Issues

I converted my tails and signals to LED this summer. Took a few tries to find a flasher that would work properly...or somewhat properly. Had to go to a 3 wire type, with one wire being a ground. The one I ended up with works as it should except the flasher clicks 2-3 extra times once the lights qui...

Re: Failed on Front Alignment

“IF” you have to elongate the slots to gain more adjustment I would suggest you install a “tower” instead of using the slots. That is funny Jim, I was thinking the same thing, of course, I was going to make my own towers, my upper mounts are a set of coilover mounts without the shock/coilover mount...

Failed on Front Alignment

I was not too successful at doing the home alignment, now I am wondering if I messed up on doing the front end install but more than likely I haven't a clue on how to use the caster/camber gauge. I think I am pretty much done trying and will just surrender and take and have it done, it shows I have ...

Re: ‘64 Cyclone update

Glad to hear you got it worked out, I know I have some (a lot) of the same in the future for myself :roll:

Love the pic of the car in front of the garage, every time I see it I think about how clean it looks and a perfect presentation nothing overstated.

See Ya,

Re: LED Tail Light Issues

I put together a video of the taillight issues I have been experiencing trying to convert over to LEDs, I may have a solution for now but would like to get it fixed correctly eventually.

If anyone has any insight I would love to hear your thoughts.

See Ya,
