Gotta put the vert away next Sunday (seasonal registration in Alaska, car has to be parked from Nov 1-March 31--Not a big problem because I don't want to drive it in the snow anyway, and the big bonus is, it's exempt from IM testing!!!).

Anyway, looking for ideas for a winter project.

Anyone know where I could find rear-window louvers for a convertible???

Don't really know your budget, but for short money you could:

1 - intake manifold replacement
2 - Sub frame connectors (if you can weld, if not wait until the car is driven again and get them welded)
3 - Short throw shifter (which should arguably be everyone's first modification)
4 - Underdrive pullies



I bought a 27" monitor to compensate for my lack o

Thinking the same thing as Kurt, do a full coilover front suspension from Maximum Motorsports, or even Granatelli if your budget is tight.... much better stance with that

I do appreciate the input, but I was really bored when I posted this...

There's a joke hidden in there.:nonono:

Or at least I thought so.

As far as actual winter plans--none. 95 goes into storage this Saturday; winter work will all go to the 67.

Next spring when it comes out of storage, the 95 will get new front brakes (maybe Cobra swap if the $$ is there), new struts/shocks on all 4 corners, MM rear LCAs, and new front wheel bearings. And THAT'S ALL! I mean it!

Dual cupholders out of a '98 stang? Not the best but one of the most-useful mod I've done. Got them off eBay.
Believe it or not, I've actually considered this one!

I've got a 99 console that I'm going to use in my 67, and when I saw the cupholder setup, I liked it...which got me thinking! I've still got the little foldout one, but it's not the most user-friendly cupholder, especially with a manual tranny.
