    Fusebox dimensions

    Hi everyone, I dropped off here a while back because my 1999 'Vert got between a drunk driver and his sandwich. The car is beyond repair, but the drivetrain is being transplanted into an old Mercury Zephyr. I'm at sea (at work on a ship) and one of my co-workers owes me a favor and suggested...

    WTP Gas Pedal

    The plastic pedal piece has broken off my accelerator pedal. I'd like to replace the whole assembly. Car is a '98 V6 but I think they were all the same '94-04? PM me here if you have one; I'm looking to spend around $20 plus shipping or so. I'd add another $5 or so if the cable came with it...

    Venting about a car project/life stuff.

    TLDR version: I'm being whiny about a car project. This is 3.7 Mustang, so I'm not asking so much for sympathy, as for that smack upside the head and "snap out of it!" that you all deliver so well. :crazy: Actual ranty bit: I bought my first Mercury Zephyr in 1990 and owned it in one form or...

    Brake Booster Install tips?

    The other day my friend's V6 Mustang (2002) had a dead booster. She needed to get to work so I just yanked the booster out of my 1999 V6. It was a bit tight but I got it all together for her. It was harder to get out of mine because I've got the Windstar intake and of course the coil pack is...

    How do you deal with "the friends thing"?

    So, while I was on shore last month I met a girl. We chatted a bit, traded emails, all that fun stuff. The past few weeks I've been on the ship we've been emailing and IM'ing and I am getting to like her, just having fun flirty conversation and stuff. It's gotten to the point where we're...

    WTB Feeler: 5-speed swap in Western NY/PA

    My friend has an '02 V6/auto. Looking to replace the transmission over the winter, so looking for a good price/opportunity more than a quick purchase. I'm located about an hour South of Buffalo and can drive 2 hours or so to pick up a complete 5-speed swap setup. Also will be hitting...

    The Zombie Apocalyse is Happening to Me!

    It's 0230 hours and some moron has decided my sleep is less important than them watching some sports rerun (there is another electronics tech who can change channels for him--except that other tech is apparently too busy to come running when some dimwit wants to have a channel changed). So I...

    My '99 Vert so far

    A few pics of the car in progress. ...take 16... Looks pretty good for a car that hit a deer at 45mph on New Years' Day :D Good angle for the car, but of course people may not want this angle of me changing the headlight bulb... Getting ready to roll. So far: Cobra brakes under Mach 1...

    What I do for work...

    I'm not allowed to discuss details of my work and especially not on high-profile jobs. However, here's my ship in the news: http://www.timesunion.com/AspStories/story.asp?storyID=928748 And I can't answer questions...if you don't see it in the news, you won't hear it from me. Edit: I'm on...

    Some douchebag spiked my drink!

    So I was out picking up a friend's girlfriend at her work the other night, as we're currently replacing the brake lines on his pickup (and, of course, the easy way to replace brake lines is to remove the bed, which then needs painting with truck bed liner, and paint the frame with truck bed...

    My friend's Mustang plays an April Fools' joke

    My friend and I arranged to spend a couple days doing some maintenance on her Mustang over the last couple days. Water pump, exhaust, IAC valve, nothing major. So after it's all done, I decide I'm going to Sea Foam the engine, because the intake is pretty gummed up and the old IAC was filthy...

    WTB 1999+ V6 Mustang <$3000

    My friend is looking for a V6 Mustang. She likes the New Edge and S197 cars (although S197 for $3000 isn't realistic). She is looking for a green, V6, automatic if possible. She prefers green but color isn't super important; she'll know if she likes the color when she sees the car or pics...

    Thoughts for convertible

    So I sold the 1998 coupe after a year...and decided to stay with a Mustang. I picked up a 1999 convertible in black on black; also a V6/T5, pretty much stock. I've been thinking about what to do with it, and I've got some goodies lined up...wanted to hear some thoughts: 1. Brakes are...

    WTB: White face gauges for '99

    Just looking to add a little lightness to the black '99 interior. White-face gauges (not white glow face) would do that, I think. Anyone got a set? Ben

    WTB light bar, gauges, etc for 1999 Vert

    Interested in the following for my black-on-black 1999 'Vert: 1. Light or styling bar in black. Don't care if it has brake lights or not. An actual roll bar would be even better so long as it looks good and clears the top and allows passengers. 2. White face gauges; preferably not the...

    WTB: accelerator pedal pad piece

    The accelerator pedal pad on my '98 is cracked where the pin holds it to the pedal arm. The previous owner had it wired together with a godawful pedal cover thing (and matching crap wired to the other pedals too). I would be happy to buy the whole pedal or just the part that the pin holds...

    1998 Mustang plans?

    Okay, for those of you who read my first couple posts, I've decided to keep the Mustang (unless it annoys me, lol). Of course, the car is still at the stealership with no heads or head gaskets...waiting on parts. Then again, I'm at sea until Monday so it might be done when I get off...ha...

    WTB 1998 Fog Light Switch + Plug

    EDIT: found one on eBay with plug, but I'd be happy to buy a spare if the price was right...I don't always trust used ebay parts! I've got fog lights in the bumper already (or at least it looks like they're lights!). I don't have the switch and I don't know if there's a plug underneath. My...

    My new Mustang update. With MANY PICS, 56k beware.

    Well, I got an email today about my "new" 1998 Mustang V6. Bear in mind I haven't taken delivery yet...nor even seen it without a foot of snow on top. Then again, realize that this is STILL preferable to me over the car I'm disposing of... Apparently with 56,689 miles it has a coolant leak...
