    Hi Kelly.
    I read somewhere in a post about your Unisteer R&P unit. How did you resolve the discrepancy between the large mounting hole in the bracket and the 1/2 bolt that goes into the frame?

    Thanks,
    Bill

    Hi again,

    Think you are right in your funding priorities - car first, especially now that you in fact use and enjoy driving the car.... all too often classic cars are exercised way too little.

    Never gotten around to the US vacation myself - that time will come and we have friends we need to visit while we're there. That will for sure be a good vacation too.

    Keep up the mustang-spirit

    Cheers
    Bebob

    Hi Kelly,

    Just saw your "signature car picture" and recognized your car from the 2-month round trip in the US.
    For the time being I am stationed in Kuwait, part of the coalition who fights in Iraq and Syria. In my spare time I read and listen to music, and by coincidence stumbled onto your mustang-travel-blog. It was very good reading and trip I most certainly envy you (in a good way). It gave me time to think of something else than the conflict over here - so thank you.
    I live in Denmark, northern part of Europe, and hope to do my own round trip of Europe in my 1968 Mustang Coupe - maybe it will be accompanied by a blog too.
    So I just wanted to say "good job - excellent reading and beautiful pictures - I wish it was me"
    Kindest regards
    Bebob

    Hi. Love the picture of your car posted May, 2014. The stance looks perfect. What brand and configuration of leaf springs and coil springs are you running? Thanks.

    Hi Shawn,

    I absolutely love the Hurst shifter. I believe that that is the standard shift knob/lever that comes with the shifter. It puts the shifter at exactly the right spot and gives it a nice long throw. Not too high up in the air and not too low to the trans tunnel. I'm a fan of the shifter knob - fits perfectly in your hand. I prefer it to the pistol grip ones.

    Hope that helps!

    I noticed your Hurst shift rod and knob in your center console post. Great job on the console by the way. My question is, do you like the shifter position and the size of the knob, or would you prefer the shifter was in a different position and the knob was a different size? I imagine I'm a little taller than you (6'1"), but I'm still curious how satisfied you are with your setup.

    Thanks

    Shawn

    Hi Stellablue,

    I have a newer booster - but first, do you have a manual transmission with the stock Z-bar clutch linkage? If you do not, then you won't have any issues fitting the setup in the first place The problem is that the boosters for manual trans manual clutch linkage cars has to stand out from the firewall by about 3 inches, which is where you start running out of space. I don't think I've ever actually seen a larger stock booster for a manual trans car from Ford.

    Regardless, that NPD MC is the shortest and smallest dual bowl that I've found on the market for our cars. The only one that might take up less space is the plastic reservoir one that recently became available (believe that CJPP sells it). So either of those are your best options!

    Hope that helps Kelly
