I've just detailed the engine compartment and want to keep it clean for a while. Does anybody have a good suggestion for keeping water from running thru the right hood mounted turn signal and running all over the battery?

Good question! I don't know of anything short of not getting the car wet.
If you design a cowl cover for the turn signal you may make some money.
If you keep your car inside you may be able to keep it clean with the instant
detailer's out there. I keep my 63 1/2 Galaxie and my 65 Mustang inside. Neither
has been wet in the past many years. I use a car duster and then the instant
detailer. Sorry this may not help but I don't like rust, and if the don't get wet
they won't rust.

Not much you can do outside of keeping water away from the signal lights. I had the same problem with a 68 GT/CS a few years ago, was carefull when washing it to keep water away from that area. Also kept it in a garage except when driving it (sunny days only).

I drive mine about once a week (only on sunny days). I do wash it about 3 times per year. Maybe I'll work on something. I wonder if there are enough stangs out there such that I could retire from the profits. LOL :)
