Aaaannnndddd 8 years later I found something that works, at least for the 87-88 cars. It's made by 3m, Silver Polyester Metalized Film Tape 1/2" Width.
Grainger sells it. A 5 yard roll (15 feet) is enough to do the rubber side moldings between the wheels. It has an acrylic backing (like body side molding tape) and, if applied to a clean, grease free surface, sticks like crazy. It only needs to be trimmed at the ends as it is the perfect width to cover the chrome strip in the moldings .
Found this. How is it holding up..?
1988 cougar moulding. I think 1/2 inch?
Found this link as well.
I will check the fuses when I get home. Other than that I have no idea what else to check. I've never messed with the cruise stuff before. Any advise is appreciated.
Just thought I would post it up. Free show, Free to register, if you want.
I may be able to pic up a set of 4 with tires.
This leads to my question. You guys running 17" wheels, did you notice much ride quality degradation when going to the lower profile tires, such as the ones I mentioned?
Mine already doesn't ride that soft now, cut front stock springs and Tokico Blue shocks all around.
I got a set of used GT40P heads, unknown mileage, pulled from yard.
I will be putting them in my 88 cougar. (stock block with 122K miles on it) I am going to pull the engine to address a bad rear main seal leaking.
I will be adding a HO cam also, along with the Explorer upper and lower intakes.
I'm trying to get this car back into daily driver status with a little more power.
Money is very tight on this project. I plan on getting either Alex's springs or the TrickFlow kit. Any advise on that?
What is the bare minimum I need to do with the heads? Can I skip a valve job and magnaflux?? Put new brass blockoff plugs or leave alone? I plan to just use the stock rocker arms, (Cougar,Mustang or Explorer) or does it matter??
Will my stock Cougar pushrods work?
Can I reuse my Cougar valve lifters?
I plan on putting a new oil pump in block while out. What else?
Do I buy head gaskets based on the block or the heads?
I know a lot of questions, just trying to get parts budget and figure things out, and need your guys help. Thanks.
