Let it dry out before you do anything. When mine leaked, I started the car, blasted the AC on recirculate, locked the door, and let it run for an hour and a half. I know this isn't the time of year...

I'm with you, Nuke. When I replaced the alternator in my Mustang the second time, I went with the new (not rebuilt) lifetime warranty alternator from O'Reilly. Since it seems I have to replace this...

Make it easy on yourself. Whichever oil you use, change at 5,000 or 10,000 miles. It makes things real easy to remember.

I thought the same thing when I bought mine. Like you, I didn't have any luck either. I am old enough that I am no longer a racer, but a cruiser. I looked for 17" 50-series non Z-rated tires and...

You can tell who all the 'old school' guy are here as well as the 'kids'. Back in my kid years, I crewed on a friend's race car. I was amazed how much he knew. His take on torque wrenches? ...

Great job! There was a lot of work there, you should be proud. Fix the motor and use it as a daily driver. It already has a better story than most cars on this forum. Since it has the Pony...

Glad to know mine isn't the only Mustang with an electrical gremlin. I would say it took a year and a half to take care of them, but I don't want to jinx it.

Make sure the electrical connector is fully plugged in and not corroded. The switch could be bad.

What he said. I thought about both side and hood scoops when I bought mine. If they were functional it would be one thing, but I do most of my driving on the freeway and see them as MPG sucking...

It depends how you are going to use the car. Duralast parts on a race car? Probably not a good idea, but for every day driving they will be fine. I upgraded to GT rotors on my V6 up front, put in...

My son is 6' 4" and fits. The seat back is leaned back a little farther and the base is as low as it will go, but it is manageable. I definitely would find someone with one and try it first.

They come without them so aftermarket companies can sell more spoilers. Whatever comes on the car from the factory, the owner is going to take it off and say it is a trick mod. If something didn't...

If you want to, do it. At least the 4.0 badge is honest. I went to a Mustang and All Ford show this weekend and you would be amazed how many fake Shelbys there were.

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...

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...

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.
