Lounge / Re: Who has guns?
Been a hairy couple months.  More so, I would say, if one were in the gun business, so who has guns NOW?  Anybody new?

Engine Tech / Re: VERY Cheap E7TE Heads Found
Some things are worth waiting for, like aluminum heads.  Other things, like E7's are not worth waiting for.  Don't settle for garbage, hold out for the heads you want.

Suspension/Steering / Re: OK Guys, School me on SN95 front brake swap
Yours stock MC is either 3/4 or 7/8 bore, where you're going to need a 1" bore MC.  The booster swap improves pedal feel, and reduces the massive right leg workout you'll get if you use the stock booster.  The SN-95 booster and Cobra MC in my car combined with my brake choices and the prop valve I used, give a very OE Cobra pedal feel. They feel neither under, nor over boosted. It could have only been better it I converted to all braided stainless hoses.
It's like I stole Baby Bear's brake parts.

Don't forget that the original master is 3 lines, the 93 cobra master is 2, and the factory prop valve inturrupts the right front line; a fact that made the disc/disc prop valve idea all the more attractive.
I'd advise an ambitious wrench looking to pull this job to get a good flaring kit that includes ISO bubble flare tools. Its better to make lines than try to find adapters.

Don't forget to use a proper booster.  The matching 93 cobra unit is ideal, but I used the V6 SN95 booster and only had to oblong 1 hole in the firewall.  I did mine recently, and found that the 93 booster was practically unobtainium.  Everybody also seems to want to use an adjustable prop valve, but I didn't want to dick around with adjusting brake bias.

Also: I used 99-04 parts and did not have to shorten the inner tie rods.

What prop valve did you end up using again?

Comes with lines for connecting it to their master, but since I didn't use their master, I had to fab my own lines.

Body/Appearance/Interior / Waterproof Car cover
I've decided that parking my daily in a heated garage this winter is more important than storing my TBird in a heated garage, so I'm looking for recommendations for a good, solid, WATERPROOF car cover.  Who has a story and/or recommendation?
