    Alright, so I've gotten the whole car in epoxy primer and my panels were rather wavy so I covered the whole thing in slick sand to help with the sanding. I laid 2 costs of epoxy primer and 2 coats of slick sand on this trunk. I guide coated the whole thing and I have these great areas next to...

I have a 302 btw, power brakes, borgeson steering. Installation went smoothly, I got everything in and went for a test drive. I love the...

    So took the car on the freeway for the first time since the steering issue. Got going about 60 mph and I got this wicked vibration. It was bad enough I had to slow down to 45 mph and get off at the next exit. To me and my passenger it felt like it was coming from the rear end and it felt like...

    Installed a borgeson steering box into my 1968 coupe. I installed the adapter onto where the control valve screw's onto the drag link. While I have stiffer steering it still gets shakey above anything over 40 mph. Could I: Get wider tires in the front? Would that make the steering a bit...

    Hey, just got my 1968 Coupe 302 out and about during this wonderful spring weather. Had a borgeson power steering unit installed on it during the winter. Had a professional shop look over my work to make sure it was done correctly. I'm not too pleased with the borgeson unit because my steering...

    I need help finding out an electrical problem with my mustang. The battery dies about 3-4 hours after being turned off. Can it be my ignition module or my voltage regulator it has a 289 if that helps? Do I need a voltage regulator if I have an igntion module? I have disconnected my voltage...

    I am installing a brake booster into my 1968 Coupe. I've seen people who put in a longer pedal which I'm guessing is for more leverage? I do have a manual tranny so do I need to put in the longer pedal? What does it affect?

    Hey has anyone ever done a granada swap? If so are the one piston calipers good enough? I'm looking into doing this with my 1968 Coupe and I wanted to know what my options are with calipers because I have read on the internet that the one piston calipers arent as balanced and stable as...

    So I was browsing the classifieds when I saw a 1977 Mustang 2 being parted out with no engine or tranny but had the complete suspension. Its only listed for $400. I wanna put disc brakes and rack and pinion steering on my 1968 Mustang. This sounds like a good deal to me. Is it just a bolt in...
