What did you do to your Panther lately?

RE: What did you do to your Panther lately?
Well it's not the long awaited LED color swap but it is a instrument cluster mod, not happy with the color match between the needle hub and the ring but I think I will do the other side of this one to match, it's TAMIYA MICA SILVER.

I have a two spares, the next one will be TAMIYA CHAMPAGNE GOLD, hope it matches closer to the needles.

   

One thing I missed at first, there is some molding flash noticeable on the outside of the rings, nothing that a bit of fine emery cloth or sand paper wouldn't fix but should be done before painting. :-(

RE: What did you do to your Panther lately?
I moved one of my engines around today, and as always...coolant came out.
It seems that no matter how long a motor sits around or how many times you move it, there will always be coolant somewhere and it will spill out when you move it again.

Picked up a 21mm rear sway bar from a Marauder for $50, it’s thicker than the stock P71 sway bar as you can see. It was the thickest rear sway bar Ford ever made from the factory, and I practically stole this one.

It was a little scraped up cosmetically, so I’m giving it a new coat of paint before swapping it out. More pictures to follow.

Got a couple Sumitomo HTR A/S P02s (W speed rated!) mounted this morning. Pumas were too tall. Who knew 235/65s were too tall? Anyway. I’d upload some pics but they’re too big off my phone. $115 per bought, shipped, mounted, and balanced.

RE: What did you do to your Panther lately?
Swapped out the old 17mm sway bar with the 21mm Marauder sway bar. The old one got to see daylight for the first time in almost 12 years since the car was made, and is noticeably lighter than the bigger one. Here are some before and after pictures:

Before

After

[Image: BF10EA5C-F46A-4464-88F9-D22A9C8D6C0E_zpsozsjpem5.jpeg]

I’ll let you guys know what the difference in handling is, once I find the right road to test it out. Smiley-with-glasses37
