RRS has bolstered their product line with two new items; a right hand drive chrome finished tilt collapsible steering column and a 5.4 Modular V8 Engine Conversion kit. However the tilt column is what excites me most. It’s yet another product, joining the dash kit and bezels, in their right hand drive line of products. With more and more right hand drive aftermarket products for the vintage Mustang it positions RRS as a leader in markets such as Australia and the United Kingdom where right hand drive restorations are in high demand.

Original Eleanor Movie Correct French Steering Wheels Still Available!

Quite some time ago I posted about how difficult it was to find the steering wheel Eleanor displayed in the movie. You may remember the Lecarra wheels were originally French made but something happened and production stopped for months upon months. Once manufacturing resumed they then became US made wheels and was this writers opinion that the quality was not as good. Why? Well I’ve owned both versions. The French ones were far more smoother, felt of a higher craftsmanship and of course were a match to the movie car. That being it had 18 rivets whereas the newer US one only had 9.

Well a reader reminded me this week of a French site that still makes the original wheels. It’s something I forgot to share with you all when I found out about them. All the info after the jump. [Read more…]

LED Taillight, Reverse Light and Turn Signal Kit From Mustang Project

There are small things when building an American Muscle car in Australia that if you don’t get right could cause you problems later down the track with authoritys. One such thing is your reverse and tail lights. In Australia (well NSW where I live) the law states that your reverse lights can be white but your turn signal must be amber. Now there are many in Aus who have had their cars passed as stock, some due to keeping left hand drive and others maybe by sheer luck. Either way I will be trying to adhere to every letter of the law when I go to get my old girl registered. Which brings me to this cool little product I stumbled across. [Read more…]
