So, Elmo needs a piece of Flint to spark his pilot, and burn some green waste? Could be those fumes might cause a combustible issue ;)

Inflation is not the answer unless you use the proper gear lube. G4 and never G5 is necessary. Always top off the lube before inflation.

paint type on doors and dashboard for 1971
« on: April 17, 2017, 09:18:08 PM »
Hi all, I getting ready to put my '71's interior back together and I want to paint the dash board and the inside door metal. It looks like the dash is a semi-gloss or flat black, but the door trim looks to be a bit more shiney. Has anyone  re painted the dash or inner door metal?  I'm thinking of doing it with a spray can. can anyone help here.   Thanks,   Chris

Years ago I changed the radio bezel on my 79 wagon to the early metal type so I could install a din style radio.  I bought a can of black interior paint for a 65-68 Mustang and it matched almost perfectly.  When I get around to doing my 73 hatch, I will do the same thing.

From a previous post about the restoration of my cruising wagon:
For those of you with a black interior a perfect match for the factory semi flat black is SEM 39144 trim paint, it also comes in spray cans for those without a gun and an air compressor.
This paint is available from most well stocked auto supply stores.
