 I have a paint question also. I plan on using the POR-15 paint kit but my
problem is my garage is heated only when I'm in it a few hours a night or on
the weekends. So the block never really warms up. Will I need to wait till
warmer weather or can I still paint with the garage about 70 degrees. I know
the block will pick up moisture due to condensation but I also thought
POR-15 thrived on moisture?

Subject: Rack & Pinion replaceables


I have a question I was hoping others might know...  Will other Rack &
Pinion units work on the Mustang II unit?  The reason for this question
is that I've seen some rack & pinions for auction on the net and there
is quite a selection other than Ford Mustang II units.

Here is the list of those available,

Anyone know and can help?

My running boards from Sac Vintage just arrived yesterday... SHARP! I have never been so satisfied with the quality on one part since I started this project. I had ordered the front fender skirt/cowl piece, and was very dissatisfied with it's quality, it would have required much work to get it ready for paint; the running boards are ready for paint out of the box!
I primer tomorrow!

Abe,

       Now this is an easy question, all of us old truck nuts will jump at
any excuse to, once again, pull the motor out. Detailing the motor is a great
excuse, especially in the winter.

I think it might be best to go straight to the source.  Try
http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.por15.com/.  I think they have a customer support section along
with an extensive FAQ area.  I stumbled upon my regional POR15 sales rep who
< when I can reach him, has always been very helpful and knowledgeable.  Oh,
I think the web site also gives you a toll free number to call for such
questions.

Stephen -
      Glad you're happy with your new boards.  Do you know who made them?  I
got some made by Rock Valley or something like that in the Midwest, and they
were far from SHARP!  I was told they make most of the ones available.  Check
the straightness of the top which goes up under the cab and bed - the ones I
got dove down more that 1/4" in the back where they go under the rectangular
panel under the bed itself.  They also bent down less in the front, but its
supposed to be straight.  Just a bad stamping.  Hope yours are better.  They
didn't refund my shipping when I sent them back, either.  Got em through RBs,
out in Seattle.

I got boards through Macs for my 52 and they were very poor.  I called
Macs and sent them photos of them and they refunded me $100.  Their
supplier is also that Rock Valley place and said they make all the
running boards.  I ordered stock ones with the ribs, but the ribs
weren't aligned properly, boards weren't level, lots of high and low
spots and not right.  For the price of them I figured they would have
been better.  Has anyone else had the same problem?

Hey, I got a good pair from Hot Rods Worldwide. Staight and smooth, could
have used a good primer though.
They are from out east some where. Did me right on the price too.
