  1. Hello Folks, I am finally in the process of installing the defroster in my 1947 Plymouth. So far I have installed both diffusers to the slots in the dashboard (underneath the corresponding outlets under the windshield). However, I am at a loss as to how to install the remaining equipment. My shop manuals have virtually no mention of the defroster installation, and Internet research for information has been futile. Would anyone out there happen to have any pictures of their existing defroster installations that I could use as a reference? Any and all information would be greatly appreciated.
  2. Hi MJ, I found mine on eBay, took a few weeks of searching till I found them. Brought them to my local trim shop and had the pair rebuilt and recovered. Good luck!
  3. Dudley32, Nice car...looks familiar! Any more details (drivetrain, suspension, etc.)?
  4. Hello YukonJack, I just went through the same process as you - new sun visors, new headliner. Andydodge's procedure is spot on, that's exactly how I did it...admittedly it took me about a half-hour or so to muster up the courage to poke the first hole in my nice headliner! If you have a light-colored headliner, make sure your hands are clean; doesn't take much to dirty it with fingerprints. Good luck!
  5. The car looks fantastic..love that blue! Nice work. Can you provide more details, or a link to a build thread, etc? Thanks.
  6. Resurrecting my 5-year-old thread for a follow up question... My 47 has a Hupp Model 356 heater installed under the passenger dash; should it have some provision for adding defroster ducting? Thanks again!
  7. Hello sunsetdart, I am aware of that tool, but I was under the impression that it was for tape/adhesive striping only. I will check it out once again. Thanks!
  8. Hello Folks, My 2001 Ford F150 Lightning pickup has a painted pinstripe (applied by the previous owner) applied all along the top of the body line. Over the years it has become faded, and in some spots it has completely disappeared. The original factory red paint is otherwise in excellent condition. I would like to remove the remainder of the pinstripe - is this something I could do, perhaps with careful use of polishing/rubbing compound? Thanks in advance!
  9. Hello Greg, I think you may be on to something. He worked for a hazardous waste transportation company, and was on call 24/7 up until a couple of years ago. That key may be to the security gate at the corporate yard, or perhaps to the company fueling station.
  10. Thank you Joe. The first thing I did was a Google search on that patent number but I did not get any satisfactory results on the first few pages...I'm curious, what did you use as your search criteria?
  11. Hello Folks, I just purchased a 1996 Mercury Cougar with only 35,000 miles (neighbor down the street passed away). While cleaning out the trunk, I came across this: It is inscribed with US Patent number 4303966, and the circuit board is stamped '1415'. The previous owner went through great pains to stash this - it was sealed in plastic, wrapped in a paper bag, taped up and then hidden under the trunk mat underneath the spare tire in the tire well. It appears to be some sort of dongle with a tiny flashlight. The light doesnt work, but I can't seem to find any way to open it up to change the battery. My curiousity is piqued; anybody out there have any idea what this may be? Thanks in advance!
  12. I usually like Dilbert, but I must be overlooking some subtle level of humor here... http://dilbert.com/strips/comic/2013-02-11/
  13. I am getting email notifictions for EVERY new post on subscribed threads, as opposed to a single notification (as was on the old board). I changed my notification setting from 'Instant' to 'Offline' , but still get the multiple notifications. And what does the option for "Push Notifications" do? Thanks in advance for your time and trouble.
  14. EXCELLENT! - Great new feature. More than makes up for the missing 'hover' Please disregard previous disenchanted remark...
  15. Hello all, Another feature I miss: In the old version, you could 'hover' the pointer/cursor over the topic heading and get the first few lines of the content (which would allow you to decide if you felt the post was worth reading or not, without clicking it and then having to back out). In the new version if you 'hover' the pointer/cursor over the topic heading, all you get now is a dialog box repeating the topic heading. Oh, well.
