I think you son was out jumping some curbs!

I guess they just don’t make rubber the way they used to.

At least it happened in your garage and not on the way to/from a show.

Speaking of repairs, are you willing to lend out the spring compressor you picked up for your front end rebuild?

Maybe the rubber was dry rotted and one broke while you were driving last and then the other just let go to be cooperative.

Jeff, if you need a spring compressor sooner than Don can supply it - I have a couple. I've got the typical internal (I've shortened/modified for Falcons) and an external type I've yet to ever use, but would probably be the easier to use, but would maybe require removing the spring shield under the fender.

Thanks Roger and I will take you up on it. Maybe the internal one you had luck with in the past. Can you bring to our September meeting?

Jeff's muffler

Hello, Don.

Comment: Wow! Your car is clean underneath.

Question: What is the piece of tape on the right side of the gas tank? Is it a heat shield? Where did you get that?

Thanks, Dennis.

Hi Dennis!
Sorry to take so long to reply...life has been crazy lately with a funeral and work- I helped sell my employer...but the good news is I should be back home and to the falcon this fall.
Yes, itís a heat barrier tape. Iím pretty sure I bought it at Autozone. The original gas tank had an indentation for the muffler but it was around $250 more to buy one with that indentation. So, I went with the cheaper tank only to find out the muffler didnít fit. So, the muffler is also smaller- and I put the heat tape on there as an added measure.

Got the muffler hangers done today. The picture doesnít do it justice- makes it look a bit warped, but the guy did a great job. Nice rubber bushings up top and strong enough to hang on- and itís not going to bump the gas tank any more.
