Re: 1963 Custom Sportsteve

Love the color. Had a .030 over 289 with solid lifters in a 63 Fairlane with a T10-4 speed. I still wish I hadn't rolled it.

Re: LED Tail Light Issues

Some LED tail lights come without a built in resister, so you then have to buy them and wire them in. Without the resister you don't get enough current going thru the blinker to get it to work. Might check that out.

Re: Tomb's 65 Comet Build

It's been a while, but I did get the car all back together. Got the AC recharged and have been driving it. The new Granada spindles have shorter tie rod arms which have made the turning radius smaller which works better with my rack and pinion. I got the alignment set up with .125- camber and 4.125+...

Re: 61 sedean wheel well coating? Paint

I had the fenders off and then media blasted. Then painted with epoxy primer, then bed liner on top of that.

Re: Wiring ideas for your car

OK I looked at my diagram and the blue/yellow is a hot wire that is grounded out by the horn button to pull the horn relay in. The blue wire is also hot coming from the flasher where the flasher is fed from a fused panel. The green wire is hot when the brake pedal is pushed and the brake pedal switc...

Re: Wiring ideas for your car

In my diagram, connector A is a brake feed wire that goes to the switch on the brake peddle after it goes thru the built in circuit breaker in the switch. It was the way the factory protected the brake light circuit. When we add circuit panels with fuses we can eliminate switches such as theses.

Re: Wiring ideas for your car

Here is a picture of a 65 head light switch that is labeled. Looks like your switch has one less connector. Connection A which is the brake switch feed. I think what your labeling as headlights should be labeled battery feed and 12 volts in headlights as headlights. Your 12v in is good and Dome ligh...

Re: Weatherstripping prices

I got a personal quote from them and yes their price was high. They don't even have all the weather stripping included. I ended up buying individual pieces from Dearborn Classics. Their products seemed well made and they worked good. I had a little trouble with the front windshield. The windshield w...

Re: (At age 16 and on) Cristian’s 1962 Mercury comet s-22 build thread

Good to see your not afraid to jump in and try to figure it out. I would suggest getting a 12 volt light tester. There cheap and work really well. It's a hand held needle with a 12 volt bulb in it that's connected to a wire with a alligator clip. You clip the alligator clip to bear metal that's part...
