    • That looks nice. I don’t remember seeing one like that before. Is it baffled inside at the outlet to the carbs?

      • It does. Not like a factory baffle but better than the alloy covers sold today

        • Decided to "seat of my pants" convert my fiberglass hardtop to a targa. A work in progress is an understatement but i'm getting it there.

          • Replaced my sandblasted windshield with the lightly tinted glass from TRF. That job is quite the adventure.

              I did the same about 11 years ago. You can hardly tell it is tinted. But TRF was out of the un-tinted ones at the time. Did you use the rope "trick"? I'm not sure there is any other way to do it.

              yeah, used the rope method with soapy water. getting that plastic surround trim into the seal was also fun.

          • Installed new points and condenser. The old points were pretty bad but it ran pretty well despite that.

            • After 5 years without audio I decided to add a bluetooth amplifier. I wanted something stealthy as I like the look of my dash the way it is. Speakers are in the head rests. The amp fits in the glove box and I attached a rare earth magnet to the back of the controller and put another magnet behind the dashboard support bracket. This way I can either attach the controller to the metal dash under the glovebox when not in use or to the support bracket when I’m using it. Now I can play music using my phone. Nothing beats the sound of the 6 but music is a nice option to have.

                Yeah, I like to hear that engine's exhaust when I'm getting down on it and accelerating, but on those long steady drives in OD or 4th, I like to listen to something on the radio or CD.

                • I did the throttle linkage cleanup/regrease mentioned in another thread, and it really made a difference. I think it even idles better, and definitely smoother through the range. The balls are pretty worn, so ordered new ones to bring it all back to spec.
