My PBRs freshly cleaned. I'm stuck between a low gloss black or a slate gray with these. Anyone have any input?

I love my V8, but I'd love it more if all 8 cylinders worked. (they do now)

My T-bird is like George Jetson's wife, you try to give her a little money, she takes the whole wallet.

High gloss black.

Low gloss if you don't want high gloss

Unless you can keep them perfectly clean all the time, go with slate gray.

Try sending a PM to mrs.tbirdbrain and ask her to relay it to Preston. My ported manifolds were shipped out yesterday, so they're still doing business - there will be a bit of a wait time though I'm sure since it sounded to me like he's been pretty busy.

I had to boost the contrast just to get rid of the gray from the air quality and the zoom lens.

Hurst Olds! FTW! I want one someday. The 307 would have to go though.

And though this picture wasn't today, it was yesterday. No I didn't do the welding (wish it was mine) but my Caprice project hit a turning point with the boxed frame.







Not an MN12 but these pics make me happy!

My cougar is finally getting some much needed love after my caprice got into a horrible accident

So I made her semi-presentable and am looking forward to getting to know her better through this wonderful forum!

Neck through It's 1 piece from headstock to bridge.


Seats are bedroom furniture for now. I need to figure out what tracks to use and how to use them.

Anyone want to guess what I yanked them from?

Love that 4 door falcon! Got a 2dr 66 project myself

In the next few weeks I'll be picking up some new glass!

A Canon 50mm 1.8 II and a Sigma 18-50mm 2.8-3.5 with IS and USM equivalents.

For only $300 new, gotta love cheap fast lenses!

Got myself some rims for the Michelin X-Ice xi2 for the Fiesta. They are from a Contour with the "sport" package. They are 15x6.5 4x108 pattern. I think they will look nice plowing through the snow. Hopefully we will get some this year!

They are in pretty good shape, could use a cleaning.

They are. The seatback bolsters are about as big as early SC seats in the down position but the bottoms are night and day better. The thigh bolsters and adjustable support is soooo nice.

I actually found out they're actually made by lear(even though all sources say recaro), but that's a good thing since they cost less than a tank of gas and I won't feel bad about possibly modding them

Lear makes some good seats, I used to know some people in the auto interior group. I would take OEM quality any day.

Just got back from some training with the North Carolina ANG. Beautiful state and great people. Started saying "Y'all" before I left. After going through and editing 1400 pictures, my CE commander wants me to make a slide show and burn DVDs for next month’s drill.
