IMHO, one has to way the facts of heat on electronics and other affected devices vs. the "sleeper" look. Therefore, doesn't the "sleeper" look, go outa window when one attends a show and, like many, we open our trunks and hoods for the all to oggle?
Depends on whatchya wanna do with your car, I guess. I like the stock or day two look with period correct factory and dealer goodies for MyFirstCar with performance enhancers built into the powertrain but out of sight... I have always wanted to also build a heavily modded car but haven't the budget or space right now, and if I did the only really visible wires would go to the spark plugs.

Not really a mod, so much as an un-mod. 😁 I finally swapped out the tired ‘90s chrome valve covers on my ‘68 for some freshly refurbed Power by Ford covers off of my buddy’s early ‘69 Bronco. Feels better. The rest of the under hood bits are disgraceful so please disregard those, she’s just getting back on the road after an extended slumber. 😎

new extended tube heater core installed, got the serpentine belt set up mounted to measure for a belt, after finding out the stock upper radiator hose wouldn't work. Things you don't think about until you have spent the money. Had to use bronco II lower hose for the upper hose and a 70 mustang for the lower. Working on an electric fan set up, but water pump is sitting too close for a "pull" set up, so probably going to have to use a "push" set up for it. Also found a coolant leak from the rear of engine, but haven't located where it is coming from yet.........good times.............good projects

Remanufactured Motorcraft Duraspark distributor with Mustang Barn recurve installed over the weekend. Weather prevented a test drive.

Next on the list:
  • Bilstein shocks just arrived.
  • I have the parts to install a relay box for:
    • Electric Fan
    • Lights
    • Horn
  • I need to get small hole in the floor patched and install new carpet.

Lower water pump bolts still leaking after replacing a water pump, and gobbing permatex #2 on the threads that screw into the water jacket. I drained the water/coolant out today and tried to clean/dry the threaded holes, so I could put some thread sealant and try again at the first opportunity.

I finally got around to fixing the occaisional squeal I got from a high amp alt with a single groove pulley.
This might solve the problem.
Also a good chance to freshen up the polished alternator case with some Nevr-dull.
