I put in a 'do everything' double DIN unit I got from Crutchfield last month. I have put in plenty before, but their instructions and wiring diagrams can not be beat if you are going to put it in...

What he said. I would also add, unless it has been done recently, take an extra hour, flush all the old brake fluid out, and replace it with new. You are already there, so why not? Honestly, new...

Bone stock here and that is exactly what I get. My vert is a cruiser, not a racer. I am happy with the V6, but if I realized how pathetic the mileage was, I would have gotten the V8. Obviously, I...

More than likely, it is not plugged in. The wiring harness is quite short and you almost have to plug the connecter in to the switch connector after the dash panel is in place. Make sure you hear...

Welcome to the club, Terpheels. I love mine, especially since it has warmed up. If you keep the top dressed with whatever you prefer (I like 303), it should last a while. Stay on top of the seats...

It has been nasty cold here in Tennessee too. My Pony, like its driver, makes funny noises when it gets in the low 20s. Last week, I assume the emergency brake cable froze, because the emergency...

I am with you there. I have, for the most part, exorcised the electrical gremlin out of my Pony. The biggest culprit in my case were bad voltage regulators on two different alternators.

That boot cover looks great. Too bad it isn't stowable. As many times as my top goes down and up when it isn't cold, it would be a pain.

Just to do something different, I bought a piece of...

I gave up on mine last year and removed what was left of the foam padding. I have looked many places and tried just about everything in my shop to use as a solvent for the adhesive. I am afraid...

Just replace the alternator. After my second in less than 30,000 miles, I replaced it with a lifetime-warranty new (as opposed to rebuilt) alternator from O'Reilly. The way these things go through...

Being an old guy, I went old school. I put a Metra electric antenna in the right rear fender right about where the new model's antenna is. It works like a charm and looks much better. I did learn...

Great idea. I try to visually look for the lights to flash or try to listen for the click. However, if my bad ear is pointed towards the car, I go for the horn.

I agree. Even at stock ride height, the bottom of my chin spoiler has its share of road rash.

On one level, this sounds insane, but go with me on this -- how old is you alternator? At night with the lights on at an idle do your lights pulse?

I thought about getting one, but as much as my top goes up and down, from a practical point, it would be a pain.

I had to use a puller on mine. What a bear! Put a little anti-seize on the hub before you put them back on. It will make things easier next time.

I agree with White05GT, check the battery. Check the voltage regulator too. Sorry you are having electrical issues, but at least I know mine isn't the only one with an annoying gremlin.

Wow! My father always told me never to start a political, religious, or Ford vs. Chevy debate. Someone is going to end up either dead or in jail. I guess I need to add fuel additives to that list.

That is for actual fabric tops. I use 303 for vinyl and it works great. As to will it work on fabric? Probably, but not as well as the stuff for vinyl.

I have tried just about all of them and I always go back to 303 Aerospace Protectant. It has been a marine standard for years and that is a much harsher environment.
