Wired up and Installed my Valenti reverse light set today. Agent 86 came around and assisted and got the know how ready for his installation.

Will get some shots at the tail light comparison event this arvo and post em up in my build thread later, but here is a day shot (lights not on) for now.

I took my 86 fr a run up the coast this morning, home for lunch and then just a few km's to have a lool thru an awesome FORD private museum!! I peeked in the window but got invited in, and what did I find?

 

1930 A Model Ford

1926 T Model Ford

1915 T Model Ford

1965 Ford Mustang

1948 Ford Coupe

1948 Mercury Coupe

1952 Ford Customline

 

Great to just talk about old cars, this guy is the ultimate collector and what he had there was a very small part of his collection!

 

Also old petrol bowsers, signs, oil bottles, you know the things!!

 

Nice to be told 'come in anytime!!'  I will be back!! :)

Unfortunately I only had the i-Phone with me but will ask permission next time and take a camera with a flash. I'm feeling I best not disclose the location, It's in an unassuming location and not signposted or anything, in fact unless you walk right up to the front windows you would have no idea at all what's inside

 

The 1930 A-Model has been driven to Adelaide and back some 5 times!! The 1926 will be trailed to Adelaide soon for a show down there. As for the Mustang, one word: 'IMMACULATE'!!

 

My favourite today was the 1948 Ford Mercury, in particular the rear suspension which has a leaf spring from one side to the other inverted in difference to how they were mounted either side - i'm not tech minded at all sorry

 

But tucked away amongst all of these was a little Ford Fire Engine!!  quaint!!

 

Oh, he saw the 86, didn't know too much about them but is wanting to see my '89 B-Spec Mazdaspeed Roadster, so I will head up again real soon and ask may I take some pics

 

Many who live in SE QLD would have driven past this place and never known it was there!!

Yeah, the owner has given you quite the privelage, you wouldnt wanna go snapping phots and telling all the world and end up upsetting him/her in any way.

Nice to know he drives some of those cars.

Looks awesome paired with the Valenti tails!

I was never a fan of the white 86's but im warming up to them, especially considering you cant see every flake of dust like you can with a black one

Yeah he's a real nice guy, actually the 1930 A-Model was his first attempt and that was 1978!!

 

I guess now I will be bombarded with requests as to where and all that, maybe I will call in and see him after I recover and ask can I bring 1-2 along for a look, take them in the '89 MX5!!

-Installed the KTD925. I gotta say that the NVH from the gearbox has decreased to a certain extent. i quite like the tight-ish feel i get from it.

 

I have another set at home for sale so if anyone is interested. i have ordered two by mistake.

What is the KDT925?

Edit, nvm I googlized it and found some more info.  This will complement my CUSCO/Perrin combo/KDT922 nicely.
I was running out of stuff to upgrade.  Thanks!!
