User Rides / Re: 84 Tbird project
Must be getting excited to put everything together.

What size valves are in the heads?  Any porting work done?

Body/Appearance/Interior / Trunk lids - Thunderbird & Cougars
I am guessing the trunk lids are different between the Cougar and Thunderbird?  Is the Cougar similar to a Mustang lid?

Is the '87-88 Thunderbird lid different from the previous years?

A friend in the Foxbody club makes interior covers for the Mustangs and just picked up my extra trunk lid to setup on.  He's going to put the Thunderbird image I have on my wheels into it too.

I am going to start bugging him about hood insulation after this......

Lounge / Re: New career direction.
Congratulations!  I hope the change serves you well.  At least it will be something new.

My old roommate was a ASME Tech (don't think he made Master) and then he went to work for a dealership.  That was a good change for a little while but even there he got pretty grumpy although he made his way up to an A Tech there.

Today he has been working as  a home generator installer and mechanic.  He seems much happier.

Body/Appearance/Interior / Re: Cup Holders
Looks good.

I have one of those, I think from a Taurus.  I ended up getting the holder that jams between the seat and center console that works well when no one else is in the car. 

When I upgrade the stereo I may put it in them.

Progress is progress.

Looking forward to seeing the interior pics once you are done setting it up.  I thought I saw you posted something up on FB but it disappeared before I could click on the pictures.  Pretty sure it was your car.

I did post pictures and  a summary of what I was doing but I got a message from the administrator about my comment on practicing brain surgery. I think I said something about practicing on pelosi and schumer first. That was all. Apparently someone was offended so I just deleted the post.
It's coming along slowly. Trying to make sure all the wiring issues are taken care of before I put it back together. I would hate to have to take it apart and troubleshoot. Right now I'm trying to figure out how to reconnect the A/C relay and reroute the fuel pump wiring. I should get the main harness installed today which will dictate how I mount the computer. I have had to take apart the new harness to install loom over exposed wiring at the fuel injectors and make labels to ID the parts.
Any idea on how to post pictures from my computer? When I click on the symbol a box pops up asking for a "url".
I think to post pictures you have to host them somewhere else for this forum.  I have been using Imgur but I was hoping the powers that be would use Tapatalk so we could post pictures directly from there.  Here's the Imgur:  https://imgur.com/
There might be better options out there but I don't know.

Bummer about the post.  I kept clicking on the picture and got "something went wrong"  LOL
