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.

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.
Anyone ever install one of these kits or know someone who did? More than likely I will install leaf springs in my mustang because I have already relocated the leaf springs. But I keep finding myself looking at four link setups. Since I have plenty of time to decided I randomly search the...
Hey everyone, I need some help. I have a '69 mustang coupe that I purchased a set of Corbeau seats for. I am much less than happy with the seats... the thickness of both the seat and back are the problem. When I got them I got the mounting brackets to install in the original seat mounting...
I’ve got a 68 coupe with a 351c and room just sucks.
I don’t want to spend 5k on a new front end.
I’d love to do it in stages like using whatever parts I can while going ahead and putting the cradle in, uppers and lowers, coil overs etc and the towers out.
Any ideas or thoughts, tips or...
