Site Suggestions / Restoring pics in how to section
The information in the how to section is fantastic but the pics have been lost due to photo bucket. Can they be put back in as it would be a huge help when looking up info.

Body/Appearance/Interior / Headliner install?
I have a week off from work coming up so thought I would work on the bird some.
Any advice or tips on replacing the headliner in my 88? What should I look out for or is it pretty straight forward.

Misc Tech / Heater blower fan noise?
I’ve noticed when I switch my fan on it is noisy and sounds like something is in the fan. Have a feeling unwanted guests may have made a home. How do I clean the fan out or should I say how do I remove the fan/housing? Is there a link to an old post perhaps?

Vendor/Seller Feedback / A+ for 50Racer
I ordered a couple parts from Bryan (50Racer) and parts were great. I contacted him Friday morning and parts were at my house Monday. Packed very well. I’ve bought several parts from him in the past and have not been disappointed. Will hit him up for future parts

Electrical Tech / Full digital dash
Wasn’t sure where to post this so mods can move if needed.
 I have another gauge cluster on the way and was curious if mileage can be changed to reflect my current reading? I have changed mileage on the analog units before as they are pretty simple. Also before I install the new cluster will changing to 168 bulbs make it a little brighter? Seems I used 194 bulbs when I changed them in my current cluster.

Vendor/Seller Feedback / Huge thanks to Muttwood
Just want to acknowledge Randy(Muttwood on the forum). He set me up with some VERY nice door panels. He went above and beyond to get them to me and they were in MUCH nicer shape than he had even described. He kept me up to date through the shipping process and they were packed well enough to make the trip w/o damage. He is a straight up top notch guy. Wouldn’t hesitate to get parts from him again if needed.

T-Bird/Cougar Parts & Cars WANTED / Door panels
I’m trying to find some good door panels (Non-TC style). Looking for the style that has the map pockets “molded” to the panels, & the switches are in the arm rest I believe? Would like dark blue but can dye/paint if needed. Looking for complete panels. Thanks

Engine Tech / Speed density HO conversion computers ?
I’ve decided to move forward with my ho conversion and have a computer question. I currently have a VJ1? I’ve read a couple places that a DA1 will work better for what I’m wanting? What do you guys think? 87 Tbird 5.0 w/aod... 5 speed swap in the future

Body/Appearance/Interior / Painting valve covers
Wasn’t sure where to post so I’m posting here. I want to paint my valve covers and need to know if I should use a primer first or no? I’m going with a krinkle hi temp paint ( black). What prep work should be done first to ensure best results? These are older Motorsport valve covers for an efi 5.0. And last where can I find gun metal grey paint in rattle can? Thanks in advance,
Ray
