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?

General Fox T-Bird/Cougar Discussion / Re: Scanning EVTM's again.
I'll start with Google drive, then.  Still open to suggestions.  For now, the link is in my signature.  I'm still adding links to the PDF, so it's ease of use will improve as I get through it.
I've set the shared link to allow download, which is probably the best way to use it. If you download it and the links on page 109 aren't working, it means I'm not done yet, and more links will work after the next time you download it.

General Fox T-Bird/Cougar Discussion / Scanning EVTM's again.
I was cleaning out my garage yesterday for my upcoming move, and I rediscovered my OTHER T-bird/cougar EVTM's.  A lot of people have made use of my 88 wiring book, but I'm coming with 1981, 1982, 1983, and 1987 in the next couple days.
I need suggestions for hosting the files when I'm done.  I want to be able to have them widely and openly available to anybody who needs them.
